Great news, as a result of discussions with all UFGC affiliated Golf Clubs it has been agreed that all Flintshire affiliated golf clubs will accept visitors who are members of Flintshire Golf Clubs at a guest fee, that is as if they were playing with a member of that golf club.

All such bookings must be made either online or by ringing the golf course to make a confirmed booking and proof may be requested by the golf club concerned that the individual is a member of a golf club affiliated to the UFGC.

There will be no restriction to the number of times an individual can visit an affiliated golf club, as a result the County card will be disbanded.

If you require any further information or clarification of this please contact me on any of the numbers on the www.flintshiregolf.co.uk website relating to the secretary.
