History Of The Club

_VSC0004

Background

Orsett Golf Club was founded in 1899, celebrating its Centenary in 1999. The intervening 100 years has seen many changes to both the course and the club house. Orsett Golf Club Ltd. is a private members club and is limited by guarantee. The key being that the members own the club and have input into the running of it.

Course

The course is a 12 month a year course with it’s sand and gravel base. Unless there is major project work in operation the main tees and greens are in play throughout the year. During the last 12 months the course was shut for one day due to exceptional rain but unlike many of our neighbouring courses we were fully open the following day with trolleys in play. We have hosted the regional qualifying round of the Open Championship on no less than eleven occasions although the course is a fair test of golf for players of all handicaps. The benefit of Orsett is that other than tee closures for competitions etc. there is no booking of tee times. We benefit from having 3 starting holes, 1st, 6th, & 14th. On competition days the starting holes are the 1st and the 7th.

 Communication

We aim to keep in touch with all members with news items, social events, competitions etc. via the Clubs notice boards, email and the Club Web Site. Please ensure the club has your email address by registering on the web site to ensure you will be kept fully updated of coming events.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we sincerely hope this profile and the membership application pack will be of interest and we look forward to you joining us at Orsett Golf Club.

Organisation

The Club has a Board of Directors comprised of elected members who have been appointed by the members at the Annual General Meeting to manage the affairs of the Club and plan for the future. As a private members Club it is non-profit making. This ensures that all monies derived from the running of the Club are reinvested to improve and maintain all the Club’s facilities. The Board operates within a clear constitution (Articles of Association) and work closely to ensure that the interest of all members is truly reflected in the use of the course and the development of golf. Any member may at any time refer any matter to the Club Secretary/Manager for referral to the Board who meet on a regular basis.
