Membership Blackmoor Golf Club is known as one of the friendliest clubs in the county and accommodates a wide spectrum of golfers. We are a members’ club with around 560 golfing members. The club is run by its General Committee elected from the membership. We pride ourselves on having an active membership with a full schedule of competitions no matter what age, gender, or standard and there is also a busy and varied social calendar. There are “roll-ups” on most days which you can join or just come along with your friend and benefit from our “no tee booking” policy. The only tee bookings made are for competitions and societies.

We have a wide range of memberships available which we hope will suit all needs. These are: full, week day, country (minimum 40 miles by route planner from Blackmoor), overseas (away for six months of the year), young adults, full-time students, juniors and beginners. For those who are busy with work and family commitments, who may find full membership too time consuming and uneconomical, our newly introduced “Lifestyle” membership offers a flexible new approach to golf club membership and for those players without a handicap but knowledge of the game we have an Academy Membership in which players can use the course at quiet times to gain their handicap. To apply for membership please call 01420 472 775 or visit and download a membership application form. | 33
