Oh FFS

Post by JPJ » Fri Nov 19, 2021 5:27 am

This morning we got this email from the manager at our course:

> Dear Member
>
> We regret to inform you that due to events outside of our control we are no longer able to provide golf membership at Selsdon Estate Hotel beyond 31st December 2021.
>
> The hotel and golf course has been sold to a third party and is being closed for a full refurbishment.
>
> Annual members will be refunded a pro-rata value for membership beyond 31st December 2021.
> Monthly members have already had their December fees taken and will pay no further fees.

So, we're on the hunt for another home again!
:bawl

Ain't that a slap in the face for the holidays.

Are there decent alternatives nearby?

Yes. We've previously had offers, including at least one (Coulsdon) that will let us continue to keep our self-governing club identity.

Still it's a hassle, but as you implied even more so for the Pro Shop and grounds staff who will be losing their jobs.

If that was the only way our club would survive I'd join a different club.
