1893 / Reciprocals

 GOLF clubs around the world have joined the new 1893 Club, an initiative led by the Captain’s Committee of Wellingborough Golf Club. Since March 2011, golf clubs formed in 1893 have been invited to join the new club and offer one courtesy round of golf per year to members of all other 1893 clubs. There are more than 50 clubs worldwide formed in 1893, see the list and rules below:

The Rules

1. The clubs forming The 1893 Club offer courtesy to members of the other clubs once per calendar year per individual member on a simple reciprocal basis.

I’ve been a member at Long Ashton since I was 10 years old and it is a very friendly club. I always look forward to playing the course as it presents a different challenge every time you go out.
