Members

Welcome to the Pitreavie Golf Club members area

New Secretary joins P(D)GC

 Pitreavie Dunfermline  Golf Club are pleased  to announce that we have appointed Melanie Dreszler as our New Club Secretary. Mel, as she likes to be called, has been the Club Manager at the Bridge of Allan Sports Club for the last 12 months and before that was Clubhouse Manager at Canmore Golf Club from 2011 until 2019. All going well Mel will start on Monday 16th March and I am sure you will all make her feel most welcome.

2020 ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTIONS

While we are hopeful that there will be some relaxation in the government lockdown rules in the near future, the major issue the club faces is that the annual subscription notices are normally sent out in May, with payment due before the end of June.  A number of financial scenarios have been calculated based on various re-opening dates for the course and the clubhouse, together with membership renewal levels and, whilst we have availed ourselves of government grants, wage subsidies and payment holidays, it is clear that the club will start to run seriously short of funds in July without any subscription income.

The future of the club is dependent on members’ generosity and support through this difficult period, therefore, the intention is to issue the subscription notices by the end of May.  With so many unknowns (including the date of the course re-opening, and probable playing restrictions) our financial situation is such that our fees will remain unchanged from last year. However, once the club re-opens and we have an indication of membership renewal levels, then we will revisit the finances of the club and identify whatever actions need to be taken.

At this stage, full and early payment of subscriptions will greatly benefit the club and help to secure its future but, given the ongoing uncertainty over jobs and the economy, it is appreciated that some members may not wish to either commit to renewal or pay the full amount until the course reopens.  Fees would normally be payable by 30th June but, if the course remains closed at that date,  members can pay what they consider appropriate with the balance being payable on the course reopening.

Please note that no pro rata fees will be available to existing members who wish to re-join later in the year

Any member paying their total subscription amount by 30th June will receive complimentary guest tickets in recognition of their support: 6 tickets for Ordinary (i.e. ‘Full’) members on full fees, 3 for all other adult playing member categories.

In addition, if a ‘Full’ member wishes to support the club by paying fees for the next two years then a special discount of £100 will be given off the total amount.  Anyone interested should contact the Club Secretary once fee notices have been issued.

If you  have any queries please contact the Club Secretary in the first instance at Secretary@PitreavieGolfClub.co.uk.  Also, if you do not intend to re-join please contact the Secretary to advise the Club accordingly as this will greatly assist and inform our financial planning.

There are various ways you can pay and these are detailed below:

Payment may be made by the following methods :-

By BACS transfer

Members MUST PLEASE use their name AND MEMBERSHIP NUMBER as a reference on BACS payment. Clydesdale Bank Sort Code 82-67-25 Account no. 20067304.
