Membership Cards

Each member is provided with a Membership Card (referred to as a swipe card) which may be used for bar and most catering purchases. Members benefit from a discount of 10%, when using the card, on prices already competitive compared to other local sources.

Committee & Management

The club’s activities are overseen by our President, Chairman and a Committee of members elected by rotation at each Annual General Meeting. The committee normally meets about six times a year. The club is managed on a day-to-day basis by our Chairman and our Club Committee, supported by our Staff and Caterer.
