2020 COUNTY CARDS and COVID-19
In response to the most unusual situation arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Yorkshire Union have decided to amend, for 2020, the arrangements for the issue of County Cards.
At a time when club membership is vital to the health of our clubs, and indeed for the future of golf, the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs (YUGC) and the Yorkshire Ladies County Golf Association (YLCGA) are keen to assist all affiliated clubs promote the benefits of club membership.
With this in mind we are offering the opportunity for all club members (aged 18 and over) to participate, FREE OF CHARGE, in the 2020 County Card scheme. (The annual cost of individual cards is usually £10). The cards are only available to members of affiliated clubs, so encouraging membership of such a club. In order to assist Clubs in the retention of playing members, the Union will issue up to 30 cards to any club that requests them. The club can decide how to distribute the cards; they might, for example, offer them as a bonus for those members who renew membership promptly, or merely issue them temporarily to a member who needs one for occasional use.
In addition, to be eligible to get a card the member’s club MUST be a participating club – if your club is not yet registered, please consider the benefits of participation – see below for more information, and for details of how to register.
The card will afford both lady and gentlemen members, subject to the conditions of use, the opportunity to visit other courses in Yorkshire and potentially beyond, where County Card users enjoy preferential terms.
Any member who has already purchased a 2020 County Card will be able to apply next year for a 2021 Card free of charge, subject to the usual conditions. Further information on this will be on the website in 2021.
Additional information is given below, as are details of the usual arrangements for the issue of County Cards.
To get one of the free County Cards for 2020, please contact your club Secretary/Manager, who has been given information on how to get the cards.
