County Card Scheme

The BB&O County Card Scheme has been put together to enable Members of Affiliated Clubs to play at other courses – both within BB&O and other English Counties – at reduced green fee rates. The scheme mirrors those which have been adopted in most County Unions and provides benefits to Club Members, Clubs and the County Union. Within England there is a consortium’ of County Unions which enables County Card Members to play at any of the host courses within any of those County Unions. BB&O is now firmly established in that ‘consortium’ and has in fact been instrumental in expanding the Scheme to another 30 Counties. All of these courses – together with those BB&O Clubs who have joined up – will be available to BB&O County Card Members.

In summary, the BB&O County Card Scheme includes the following:

Annual membership is £15.00

County Card Members may play at least once at any of the Host Clubs on the list (some Host Clubs may allow more than one visit).

Bookings must be made in advance with the Host Club. Restrictions on time and day of the week may apply. In general, bookings will not be accepted for weekends or Bank Holidays.

County Card Members must have current handicaps and must agree to be bound by the rules of the Club being visited.

The County Card may only be used for groups of up to 4 players and may not be used in connection with larger groups or societies.

Card Members will be issued with a ‘County Card’ annually. Participating Clubs will be listed on the website along with links to that Club. The County office will work with each Club to attract the best offers and market them as clearly as possible.
