Dollar Golf Club members will be delighted to hear that the club’s council proposes to reduce membership fees by a whopping £100 for the coming 2013/2014 season.
The club has been given a major boost by an agreement with their landlords, Harviestoun Estate, for a substantial rent reduction.
Club captain Scott Maxwell said, “We are very grateful to the Poett family who have negotiated new arrangements with us. These include the ending of the practice of sheep grazing on the course,
as well as a substantial rent reduction.
“It is no secret that the club has been struggling financially for a few years now – so this is a great boost to us. We hope we can attract new members at our lower fees.
“I think it is true that we have more competitive golf
in our Dollar calendar than virtually any club I know
– so if you want lots of golf at a really good price – and
on a scenic course – Dollar is the place to be”.
Nicholas Poett of Harviestoun was keen to
endorse the new arrangements. “We have had a long
relationship with the club for over 100 years. We want
to keep that going and it is great we have been able
to help the club out at a time when all golf clubs are
feeling the pinch. I really wish the club well and I hope
we see more and more golfers up on the course in the
next few seasons. That’s what we all want.”
Dollar presents a course suitable for players at
all levels, with its ease of access, the lack of formality
and an uncluttered course it is the ideal place to
take up the game. There is a strong Junior section
and the club has teams in both the Caledonian and
Ochil Leagues.
Added to that, the summer greens remain in play
throughout the winter and when the weather is less
than favourable, there is full size snooker table, a pool
table and available refreshments.
