A solution for the infrequent but regular golfer who wishes to be a playing member of McDonald Golf Club and to hold a CONGU recognised handicap.


McDonald Golf Club has recognised that certain groups – some dedicated offshore workers, overseas workers, students, and some other groups, sometimes find that the Club’s current categories of membership do not suit their needs or finances. We have introduced a “Flexible Playing Membership” category where such members purchase blocks of units which are then used to “pay” for rounds of golf as required either on weekdays or at weekends.


The scheme is rather like a “pay-as-you-go” mobile phone; you purchase a block of units and when these are all used up, you have the option to buy more to play more.


Members of the McDonald Golf, Club Flexible Playing Membership category are treated in the same way as other restricted membership categories at the Club.


You can be allocated a handicap if you so wish, based on your existing handicap if you have one, or by submitting a minimum of three (3) scorecards if you do not have one; you can play in the regular weekly medals and stableford competitions but you cannot compete in the medal or stablefords finals; you cannot compete in any of the club match competitions nor for any of the clubs trophies; you can of course bring guests both onto the golf course and into the clubhouse. You are not permitted to attend the Club AGM, other general meetings, nor do you have voting rights at such events.


You must have unused units available to remain a member of McDonald Golf Club.

Full details of the Flexible Playing Membership scheme and the terms and conditions are available from the Club Administrator, Club Secretary, or from the website – the contact details are given below.
