The Cut : The Cut - Winter 2016
GOLF & LEISURE 137 Make sure you linger to enjoy the lavish new clubhouse, too. The 1,200 members have jumped through hoops to enter this rarefied air – referees, proposers, seconders, a three-year waiting list and then two rounds with an etiquette-vetting playing panel. But the visitor is literary made to feel like an honorary member – in fact you get a ticket on your bag saying just that! Just remember, if you’re looking to play here soon after the World Cup finishes, be quick: the course is closed during December coring and the same rule applies just prior to Easter. “We get people begging us to let them play [during coring], but we just don’t think it’s worth their experience,” says Tom Evans, guest and corporate event manager.
