BLCGA COUNTY CARD
NOW 33 COUNTIES PARTICIPATING WITH OVER 1300 CLUBS
The Bedfordshire County Card Scheme enables members of Affiliated Clubs to play at most other courses in England, at members guest rates. It is now included as part of the affiliation fee at no extra cost to both male and, from 1st April 2017, female members who have paid their fee. Clearly, however, not every member will want to play at other County Card Clubs, so cards will only be issued to those eligible members who request one from their Home Club.
The new 'credit card' style cards were initially valid from 1st April 2016 to 31st March 2017. They will be validated in future years by the application of a sticker, so should be retained for re-use please.
In addition Bedfordshire has an agreement with Norfolk which most other Counties do not.
Have you ever looked at your club fixture list and found, for example, the club championship, members guest day or other championship are being staged and you can't gain access to your course? Or, due to a recommendation, you would like to play a particular course with up to three of your friends who also hold a county card? The opportunity is now available, for that game.
Use the menu ''Participating Clubs'' for the up to date listings.
Remember - you must call to confirm availability and price. Importantly golfers can only obtain a card if they are an amateur member of an affiliated club, which ensures all card holders are members of clubs with CONGU handicaps, therefore aware of the rules and etiquette of the game.
