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).

It’s a thinkers course, you can’t just grab your driver and bash away because there are some holes there that’ll eat you up. My favourite is the par-4 13th which calls for a draw off the tee to leave you a mid iron into a green that has a ridge across and is harder than it looks. The hole wouldn’t look out of place on some of the best layouts in the world.
