Two Yorkshire clubs have joined forces to enhance the value of their memberships.
By virtue of a reciprocal membership deal, members of Cookridge Hall, in Leeds, and Sandburn Hall, near York, can take full advantage of two memberships for the price of one.
Following a chance meeting between the facilities’ respective general managers, Gary Day and James Hogg, general industry chat led to the formation of a simple exchange day between the two clubs, leading to further talks and ultimately the formation of the partnership.
“We are extremely proud to be associated with Sandburn and indeed the benefits it delivers for both sets of members,” explained Day. “Upon joining, the deal will allow members to play at either club free of charge.”
The innovative idea has been introduced by the two clubs to help combat the issue of faltering membership figures and Day is confident that it will strike a chord with Yorkshire golfers who are looking for more bang for their buck.
He added: “Whilst it is in its infancy, should the project prove successful, plans are to integrate club competitions, allowing members to play in each other’s weekly competitions.
“In turn, this will generate further income through competition fees and additional spends long-term, helping to keep subscription fees affordable and deliver extreme value for money.”
