KIRKISTOWN CASTLE WELCOMES OVER 100 NEW MEMBERS SINCE COVID-19 HIT!
Kirkistown Castle Golf Club, like many other golf clubs in Northern Ireland, was permitted to re-open its golf course following step 1 of the relaxation guidelines from the GUI out of lock-down. We are happy to report that within the first week of opening again KCGC had received over 80 applications to join this unique 118 year old golf club, situated on the most easterly point of Northern Ireland. To date they have now welcomed over 100 members, and still rising, ranging from the young to the young at heart. Their unique links experience including their own micro climate based on their location giving mild weather along the Ards peninsula allows play on the course 52 weeks a year and their location on the peninsula in Cloughey village allows you to enjoy the beautiful views of the Isle of Man and Scotland on a clear day whilst playing this unique links course.
Tracey McDowell, General Manager, said “our new applications range from Cadets from 6 years old right through to full 7 day members. Our rates for joining have been greatly received and we are honoured to assist our neighbouring sports clubs with a new sports category. Our golf professional team have also been extremely busy with new lesson packages and coaching for new members, obviously adhering to the social distancing protocols. We have been blown away by the reception we have received to join this amazing club. With rates starting from £10 for Cadets up to £299 for membership to join now until the end of our subscription year at 31st October 2020 we are extremely pleased that we have been able to be part of the return to sport after the COVID-19 lock-down. We have also streamlined our application process with our new on-line application portal, allowing potential members to apply from the comfort of their own home.
