At Prestbury, we take great pride in describing ourselves as a true, traditional private members’ Club. The focus is on golf and delivering the best possible service to our members.

We provide competitive golf for both ladies and gentlemen where both sections have many different teams catering for all abilities. Mixed golf is available and we also have sections and teams for the senior members. Ladies play the majority of their competitions on Tuesdays but we also cater for those ladies who wish to play competitive golf at weekends. Gentlemen members play their competitions on Saturdays and Wednesdays. For those people who are thinking of taking up the game, our Teaching Professional can spend time with you to assist you making the decision – there’s no harm in trying!

Applications for membership are always welcome and prospective applicants are urged to contact the General Manager, Stuart Finlay, at the outset when he will explain all the relevant details. Applicants are encouraged to play the course prior to applying.

There are occasions when an applicant applies for membership without knowing any existing members who qualify to support / sponsor his or her application. They may have recently moved into the area or live outside the area. They may already have a handicap from another Club and some who have never belonged to a Club do not have a handicap. Where these situations exist and where in every other way they are appropriate for membership of Prestbury, we can offer an temporary membership for up to six months. Six months pro-rata subscription is then payable. During this six month period, the new member plays in roll-ups, competitions etc. and meets other members who are then asked to comment on the applicant’s playing ability, course etiquette etc. etc. Once we have 3 or 4 of these member-statements, he or she is balloted in at the next Board meeting and full-playing membership can be awarded. The remaining balance of the subscription is then payable together with the entrance fee. The annual fees are shown below and there is an entrance fee payable on joining.

Please note that due to a large waiting list we are not currently accepting 'Temporary membership'. Applications are welcome but if you have any questions please contact Stuart Finlay, General Manager using the pre-application form below.

You will always be assured of a warm welcome and a tour of the amenity so please don’t hesitate to contact or e-mail the General Manager to discuss your interest.
