Membership

Who may play golf at ESTEC?

The ESTEC golf course may only be used by “playing members” of the Club, their guests, official guests of the Club and other persons specifically authorised by the Committee.

Members are not required to have a GVB to use the course, but you are asked not to go out on the course by yourself until you have acquired some basic skills and knowledge of course etiquette.
