2021 COUNTY CARDS and COVID-19
In response to the most unusual situation arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Yorkshire Union, with the co-operation of the Yorkshire Ladies County Golf Association, have decided to amend, for 2021, 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 repeating the offer made in 2020, by offering the opportunity for all club members (aged 18 and over) to participate, FREE OF CHARGE, in the 2021 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 50 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.
To get a County Card for 2021, please contact your club Secretary/Manager, who has been given information on how to get the cards, or for further assistance, please contact the County Card Administrator [details below].
If you purchased a 2020 County Card, then you can get your own personal 2021 card free-of-charge by applying, via your club Secretary/Manager, on a 2021 Player Application form; just make sure that the number of your 2020 card is shown next to your name on the application form.
The sections below give additional information on the scheme conditions,
as well as details of the usual arrangements for the issue of County Cards.
