Terms and Conditions Membership:
Every member of the club shall be subject to these terms and conditions. Rustington Golf Centre reserves the right to use discretion in all matters relating to membership.
Full Membership (Annual Payer):
All Full memberships are for an annual term. Payment can be made in full for the year or via Direct Debit and as you are committing to the full term you will be unable to cancel part way through the year.
No refunds will be given for full memberships under any circumstances.
Direct debit Payers:
If paying by Direct Debit should you cancel and then wish to re-join within a year you will be liable to a £75 re-joining fee. Direct Debit payers must give 30 days’ notice should they wish to cancel their memberships.
Injury or Illness:
If you are a full paying member and have an injury or illness that will mean you are unable to play golf for 6 weeks or longer, we will permit a freeze of your membership.
We will allow 1 membership freeze in any 2-year period. The maximum time membership can be frozen for is 6 weeks. This will be given in the form of an extension onto the end of the members renewal date and not via a refund.
No refunds will be issued for full or flexi memberships.
Points May only be used for rounds of golf on the Par 70 only and are not applicable to the Par 3 or to be used for guests in lieu of payment.
Flexi Membership points expire after 3 years from date of purchase. Should the member not use up the points in this time frame the points will be lost and will not be reimbursed or refunded.
Should the membership points expire and the member not play for any 3 year period the club reserves the right to mark them as having left and they will be subject to the full joining fee if the member decides to re-join.
Flexi members must pay a £15 affiliation fee each year to renew their membership. Should this affiliation fee not be paid within 60 days of its due date, the club reserves the right to mark them as a leaver and the person will be required to re-join should they wish to. The golf centre will endeavour to reach the member and inform them of the outstanding charge prior to marking them as a leaver.

Any playing points remaining at the end of the six-month Stage 2 membership will be discarded at the end of the membership.
