Dublin gets its first 45-hole membership option

Two enterprising Golf Clubs based in North Dublin have come together to create a new innovative golfing experience for their Members.
Forrest Little Golf Club and Corrstown Golf Club have forged a relationship which they believe is the first of its kind between two Member Owned Golf Clubs in the Dublin region.

This new arrangement allows Club Members to play and enjoy the benefits of Golf Club Membership at the other Club free of charge, even including select competition play with the primary objective being to reward loyal Members of both Clubs by providing added value to their Membership fees.
 
Oliver Boyce, Chairman at Corrstown GC, said: “We have been thinking of this concept for a while as part of our strategy to both reward and retain loyal Members by giving them greater value for money.”
 
“The city club connection to a country club type of membership has been done already and we were keen to offer something completely different to our Members.  It had to be a top golf course that we linked with, it was fantastic to find a like-minded management team at Forrest Little who embraced the idea.”
 
“I am sure our Members will be delighted and we will be more attractive to golfers considering where to play their golf. It’s the first step in a number of initiatives that we are undertaking to add value to our Membership proposition.”
 
Peter Reilly, Chairman of Forrest Little GC, said: “We share the same core values as Corrstown and a key focus for us is adding value to our Membership. The similarity in club profile between our two clubs, and the different course challenges make this partnership not only workable, but also hugely beneficial to our plans for future growth.”
 
“Offering our Members the opportunity to play a different course, so close by, at no extra charge compliments our growth strategy by further improving our Membership offer.”
 
The arrangement is for a trial period of one year initially and is free to existing members and the first 20 new members joining either club from today can avail of a special introductory rate by quoting: #45.
