South Herts Golf Club

Categories and Subscriptions

Membership categories and subscriptions effective 1st October 2021

Full membership (ORDINARY/Seven-Day)

Full members of South Herts have unrestricted access to all the club facilities. Candidates for Full membership must have a maximum handicap of 24 for men or 35.5 for ladies and must either be proposed and seconded by existing members or be a current or recent member of another golf club.

Five-day Membership

Five-day membership offers all the advantages of Full membership with the exception that the Vardon course may not be used on Saturdays or on Bank Holidays. Five day members are permitted to play on a Sunday after 2pm at a reduced fee of £30. The entry process is similar to that for Full members, but there are no handicap restrictions - although candidates will be expected to have some golfing ability and demonstrate an awareness of the importance of abiding by the etiquette of golf. A Five-day member who achieves a handicap of 24 for men or 35.5 for ladies may apply for transfer to Full membership. 


Reduced subscription rates are available for Full members between the ages of 18 and 28 (referred to as 'Intermediate' members).

Junior Membership

The Club actively encourages juniors (under 18s) to join whether or not they already have family connections. Junior members have full use of the Rees course and, depending on handicap, may play the Vardon course at certain times. The Clubs PGA qualified professionals support the junior coaching scheme run in association with the Golf Foundation. Junior members who show sufficient enthusiasm to improve may be offered free coaching with the head professional. There are numerous Junior competitions throughout the year, and the Junior team plays in a number of inter-club competitions during the season. The Juniors are collectively known as the South Herts Dragons.

Rees Course Membership

Rees Course membership provides unlimited access to the 9-hole course without playing privileges on the Vardon Course. Rees Course members have access to all the club's facilities.
