  Seaham Golf Club              NEWSLETTER          November 2018

It is with sad regret that the Club has recently lost two of its stalwart Members, Jimmy Humphrey and Brian Nicholson.  Both true gentlemen, they tirelessly gave much of their time to the Club, particularly to the Seniors.    Brian also regularly played in mixed competitions and they will both be sadly missed by all.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Annual Membership Fees

As with many Golf Clubs, Seaham Golf Club is feeling the pinch and it is with regret that the Fees are to increase for 2019.

There will be an increase of £30 across the board except for younger Members and Social Members.

To offset this each Member (over 19) will have £20 credited to their Seaham Golf Club card to be spent on food and/or drink in the Clubhouse or for booking the Golf Studio.

Also Gentlemen over 65 (5-day over 70) and Ladies over 60 (5-day over 65) will no longer need 10 years unbroken Membership to qualify for the lower rates.
