Trial Membership

Introduced in 2006 to offer people the chance to sample what Saffron Walden Golf Club has to offer, this has proved the perfect stepping-stone into membership of the Club.

Priced at just £175, Trial Members are entitled to unlimited use of the course for a two-month period (subject to normal tee closures), together with an hour lesson with Rob McNicholas, our PGA Qualified Teaching Professional. Trial Members can also sign in guests at the members' introduced rate, are eligible to attend any social functions, use the clubhouse facilities and enter Medal & Stableford competitions once you have obtained a CONGU handicap.

We are so confident you will enjoy your time with us that, should you decide to join the Club after your Trial period, we will deduct the £175 off the Joining Fee!

Please complete the downloadable application form and return to the General Office with a cheque for £175 and you will be ready to go - why delay? For further information please contact the General Office on 01799 522786 (ex. 2).

Saffron Walden is what I would call a proper members’ club, it’s very well kept and it looks in lovely condition from the moment you turn into the car park. I enjoyed the round very much and thought it was a very fair test. The 17th was the toughest hole, but I liked the 13th as well. A few tees forced you to take less club to position your ball on the fairway, but I think that is a huge plus in the design. It’s a place that makes you think on every shot.
