Join the County Members Association
Any member of any club affiliated to the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs may become a County member by completing an application form and submitting it to the Secretary of the County Members Association along with the appropriate one-off life membership fee, currently £40. You then receive a fixture list, event entry forms and County Members’ Yearbook, and you are entitled to purchase and wear the Association tie and knitwear.
Once you have become a County Member you can enter any of the nine competitions run by the Association each year. These events are held at courses throughout Yorkshire so you will enjoy a variety of different types of courses and challenges. All competitions are Fourball Better Ball, so you enter as a pair with one of your golfing friends, not necessarily from the same club, which means the events are great social events. Prizes are presented, usually by the County President, to the top five scores of the day.
