How to Apply
We have a wonderful new clubhouse to go along with the fantastic nine-hole golf course we have here on the outskirts of Whitstable. If fact you can be in the High Street two minutes after leaving the clubhouse!
We only have a small number of membership categories which are; Full, Joint ( partners ), Trial (for the first year only and not existing members ), Intermediates (those under 30) and juniors. We do also have social membership which includes 4 games of golf.
We have a very straight forward policy regards those who wish to join us. Option one is getting your application proposed and seconded by two members who can vouch for you. This means they have a responsibility to ensure you keep to our guidelines and rules! The second option is to come into the office and have an informal meeting with the secretary. You will be asked to tell us your golfing history and ability. The club can then be explained to you and details of matters like tee reservations etc advised. An application form can then be filled out and the secretary will propose and he will get another director to second the applicant.
In both cases when the application form is filled out and the relevant signatures made on it, the form is placed on the main notice board. As part of our club rules, the application has to be on display for 14 days. Whilst the form is on display the applicant can play the course, but not enter competitions.
After this time and if no members have objected to the application, the secretary will write to the applicant to advise monies payable, and to give various information sheets that will be of use to a new member. As well as the subscriptions all playing members have to purchase £100 in club shares (which are refundable if you leave us).
All golfing and social members have a club card for use when purchasing drinks and sundries from the bar. The card is also used to enter competitions on the machines located in the lounge. This card will be made available when payment for subscriptions are received. Also to collect at this time are a bag tag, a parking permit and a club diary.
This we hope is all that you need to do, or be aware of!
It’s then a case of getting involved and getting to know the course. The website has a host of information and is well worth looking at. The website is updated to let members know about social events (notices also appear in the clubhouse!) to which everyone is welcome.
We pride ourselves on the friendly atmosphere here at Whitstable & Seasalter, we have very reasonable bar prices and a good catering offer that we hope will encourage you to visit more often.
If you would like to join, please complete an application form and forward it to the secretary.
