GOLF is back in Langholm. The club will reopen tomorrow as Scotland takes the first steps in coming out of lockdown.
As the country slowly comes out of quarantine under phase one of the Scottish government’s route map, golf is back on the radar.
It has been a long and frustrating period for members looking out from their isolation at the great weather but knowing they cannot go and enjoy golf as they all respect the lockdown for the benefit of their community and the country as a whole.
The club would like to welcome everyone back tomorrow as it reopens.
Initially, the course is open only to members people can join for as little as £2.50 a week.
A full, first-year membership is £130 for adults, £75 for juveniles and £25 for juniors.
They can play as much golf as they want seven days a week. Now that’s value for money.
This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the game, whether a complete beginner or experienced player, to be part of a sport where participation is possible. Golf is a sport the whole family can enjoy.
Many people over the years have enjoyed playing golf at one time or another so this may be the time they hunt out those clubs in the attic, garage or shed, dust them down and get playing again.
It cannot be denied that the views from the course sitting above Langholm are spectacular and unrivalled.
The club has a variety of membership categories available and everybody is welcome to join.
The course has been fully maintained and is in pristine condition.
It is a great asset to Langholm so as well as enjoying the challenge of the game players will be contributing to the future of Langholm’s sporting heritage.
Memberships may be paid by monthly direct debit to spread the payments.
