djivide_ is there normally a comp every Saturday and Sunday or do the competitions tend to run over two days? Is it true that all competition entry fees are part of your membership?
I've played Kilcock a few times and would be handy cheaper option but don't think there's much of a junior section there which wouldn't really work for me.
Not sure about the nominee bit but I would not imagine so, I have spoken to a number of new members over the years and no one mentioned it. I joined about 6 years ago but had a relative who was a member already.
Weekend comps runs over both days at the weekend and can get busy on the time sheet as it is but can always find a slot to get out. There is also mid week comp on a wednesday 18 holes in the summer and both 18 and 9 hole comps later in the year.
Fees are paid up at the start of the year along with membership, so for instance for me it worked out as €2549 for the year, €2300 fees, €200 for comps/club levy plus €25 & €24 for gui membership and golfsure insurance. There is an incentive to pay early for membership, forget the cut off but goes up to 2500+249 if not paid before the cut off date, roughly 20th of January or there abouts. I think all new members get the 2300 rate to start with.
Dont have kids myself but have only heard good comments from people with kids who play in the juniors
