Carnoustie Country reciprocal golf scheme
July 16, 2012

Thanks to an exciting new initiative launched by Carnoustie Country Golf Industry Group on 11 July, 2012, members of participating local golf clubs can now enjoy half price golf at over 20 Carnoustie Country golf courses.

The Carnoustie Country Reciprocal Golf Scheme is available to all members of the Carnoustie Country Clubs participating in the initiative. "There's been a tremendous response to this initiative," said Alan Reid, Head Golf Professional at Murrayshall and a member of Carnoustie Country Golf Industry Group, which represents the interests of the 22 golf clubs in Carnoustie Country. "The majority of Carnoustie Country clubs have already signed up to this initiative, enabling their members to enjoy 50% discount at many of the 30 golf courses within a 40-minute drive of Carnoustie Championship.

"The Carnoustie Country Reciprocal Golf Scheme will encourage golfers in our area to travel that little bit further afield for a game of golf, enabling them to experience many of the fabulous courses which come under the Carnoustie Country banner, which covers courses across Angus, Perthshire and the north east corner of Fife."

The initiative was launched at Kirriemuir Golf Club, where a couple of members of Carnoustie Country Golf Industry Group enjoyed a preview of how the scheme would work with a few holes of golf on the Kirriemuir course. "As this initiative gathers pace, the success of Carnoustie Country Reciprocal Golf Scheme will rub off on all the clubs involved," said Gordon Clark, a member of Carnoustie Country Golf Industry Group. "As Kirriemuir Golf Club's representative on the Golf Industry Group, I'm very confident this will result in higher numbers of golfers from other clubs coming to Kirriemuir - and, as a golfer, I'll definitely be taking advantage of the chance of a half price round of golf!"

Ian MacMillan, who represents Scotscraig Golf Club on the Carnoustie Country Golf Industry Group, explained that, as part of the promotion of this initiative, golfers are being encouraged to share their golfing experiences and photos of golf on Carnoustie Country courses other than their own on the Carnoustie Country Facebook page. "We want as many local golfers as possible to take up this offer," said Ian.

"Carnoustie Country Reciprocal Golf Scheme gives golfers an added incentive to join a golf club by providing opportunities to play courses in the local vicinity at a reasonable cost. Carnoustie Country Reciprocal Golf Scheme is good news for local golfers and good news for local golf clubs."

News of Carnoustie Country Reciprocal Golf Scheme was warmly welcomed by members of Kirriemuir Golf Club, including Sue Belton. "I like to play other golf courses in the local area, including Brechin, Alyth, Strathmore and Forfar, and this 50% discount will enable me to do this even more," said Sue. "This is a wonderful bonus for golfers in the Carnoustie Country area."
