Gerrards Cross Golf Club


Are you an inexperienced golfer looking to take up the game seriously?

Do you have a friend or family member who is a member of GX who is willing to be your mentor?

If so the GX Gateway Programme might be right for you.

This membership category is designed for adults with some golfing knowledge and experience, but not yet of a standard to have a handicap. This 12-month Programme provides the opportunity to improve your golf through a combination of professional coaching and the support of a mentor from within the Club. Within 12 months it is expected you gain a handicap and become eligible to progress to full membership.

The programme offers

  • Initial half hour assessment with the Professional
  • Ten one-to-one half-hour lessons plus a concluding one hour playing session on the course with the Professional
  • Unlimited access to the course any afternoon accompanied by your nominated mentor or another club member agreed with the mentor.  Please note that Gateway members are not eligible to enter club competitions.
  • Full access to the Club’s practice areas including the swing studio, covered bays and ball dispensing facilities (range card cost payable at time of joinng the programme)
  • Full access to the clubhouse and its amenities.
  • Access to social functions and club card with £50 credited

Subscription and Progression

  • The subscription for the GX Gateway membership expires after one year.
  • Accompanied by your mentor, or another full member, when the Professional and mentor feel you are ready, you will submit three cards for handicap purposes
  • When successfully achieving a handicap, you become eligible for full membership of the golf club, on payment of the full membership subscription and appropriate entrance fee.

Golf Tuition will be provided by our Professional Team

The Gerrards Cross Head Professional is Alex Nelson. He and his coaching team will guide you from your first visit to the Club through to reaching a golfing ability whereby you can become a full member.

As part of the entry process, one of the Professional Team will conduct a complete assessment of your golf game and agree with you the areas on which you need to work and construct a development plan to make your progression as effective as possible.

Alex and his team will be available to discuss your personal goals and development.

The role of your mentor

The Gateway programme relies on the ongoing support of your mentor.  Please note that the Club is unable to provide mentors.  It is therefore essential that you have a member who is willing and able to provide you with the support you will need.

The mentor will be expected to accompany you on the course on a regular basis, whilst guiding you on the rules and etiquette of the game. Mentors are also expected to introduce you to other members and generally facilitate your entry into the Club.

How to join the Gateway Programme

If you are keen to develop your golfing ability and progress to full membership of our great club, the GCGP may be the right opportunity for you. If you are interested, please contact Adam Grint, General Manager. Please note places are limited.

On receipt of your application, or when places become available, the General Manager will arrange your assessment session with our Professional team to gauge your current ability and potential. Please note this session costs £50 and is non-refundable. If you are accepted for the programme however, it is deducted from your membership subscription. If it is felt that you should be able to achieve a handicap within 12 months you will be invited to attend a meeting with the GM and a Club official accompanied by your nominated mentor, to discuss in more depth the programme and the process of progression to full membership.

Following this meeting if everyone is happy a 12 month Gateway membership will be offered.
