Frequently Asked Questions - Ready Golf

 


What do I get as a Ready Golf member?

    • As a Ready Golf member you gain access to a growing range of golf courses to play.  Furthermore, you will not have to pay a penny in green fees when playing on any of them.  Our rounds per year are not limited and you will not need to top up your membership credits at any point.
    • Additionally, you can bring guests to our portfolio clubs and they pay preferential guest rates to play.  Finally, many of our courses offer exclusive deals to Ready Golf members including discounts on pro shop stock and golf lessons.

 

How much is a Ready Golf membership?

    • The cheapest way to access our membership is by paying a lump sum (called The Albatross on our site).  This way you’ll pay as little as £75/month for all your golfing needs.  If you’d like to spread the cost, we also offer direct debit options which means you pay over 3 or 6 months.  All of our latest prices are listed here - https://readygolf.co/deals/
