When a club offers a 'free month' to existing members, what does that even mean?

They take the amount of one month off the total amount (eg €80) or they give you 13 months worth?

If the latter, would you just end up paying full fee the next year anyway, so an extra month etc isn't really an incentive.

hardly that complex, the membership runs from joining date to the next year, so 12 months


now it goes for 13 months instead

Tesco, you knew the lay of the land with comps before you rejoined so why is it now "a joke"? Why did you rejoin? Honest question. If you don't like it go somewhere else, there is people waiting to happily take your place.
There has also been an increase on flexi members greenfee by a euro, which equates to one less round of golf if you break down the credits.

Robbing peter to pay paul comes to mind.

Most clubs don't operate like that as far as I know. its usually to the end of the year. I remember joining up to a course in April as a country member and then been asked for my membership for the next year in September!

Yeh my club is Jan to Jan so my questioning was along those lines.

Yeah I saw that was put in! Still great value in my opinion. I'm surprised it is still so cheap.

Not saying its bad value, its more the fact that it was put in alongside the news of extra months to soften the message.

So while its good to hear about additional members times and the extra month its reasonable aswell to allow people to analyze the parameters and give feedback.

Nothing is ever free when you look close enough.
