Thank you for visiting the Knock Golf Club website which we hope members and visitors alike find interesting and informative.
Our club was formed in 1895 and has been on its present site at Summerfield since the 1920’s when it was designed by the world famous golf course architects, Dr Alister McKenzie who was also responsible for the design of Augusta National, home of the annual Masters Tournament, Cypress Point in California, Lahinch in Ireland and the West Course at Royal Melbourne in Australia among others.
In recent times the Club has invested heavily in our course and members and visitors can be assured to find a layout which is interesting, challenging and enjoyable and sure to test all aspects of their game. In 2016 we hosted the Women’s British Amateur Strokeplay Championship which attracted competitors from around the world and was significant for the fact that over 72 holes only the winner managed to beat par.
The good news is that we are open to applications for membership with 6 day and 7 day categories both available. We are particularly interested in recruiting more lady members especially since this year in partnership with the Confederation of Golf in Ireland Knock will be running a “get into golf” scheme aimed exclusively prospective lady golfers. If you are interested please contact our General Manager, Anne Armstrong on 02890 483251 or our Professional, Richard Whitford on 02890 483825.
For the remainder of 2017 we are offering a concessionary social membership which enables those living in the neighbourhood who may already have a passing interest in golf, or who simply want to be able to relax and socialise in pleasant surroundings, to sample golf club membership without having the expense of paying a full subscription. This offer, which entitles those who take it up to make use of the full range of facilities and social activities within the golf club including our bar and extremely popular restaurant, will cost £30 and comes with the added attraction of the club providing a contribution towards your membership card which allows you a discount of 10% on our already discounted bar prices.
Visitors are welcome and should be aware that we hold a Stableford Competition open to both ladies and gentlemen every Thursday during the season.
We also have a special offer of a fourball including a meal for £100 available on Mondays throughout the year.
Should you decide to join us as a member or visitor you will be able, following your round, to sample the cooking of our new chef/caterer, Bob Young, who provides excellent food at reasonable prices as well as morning coffee and freshly cooked breakfasts on weekends.
Social events during the year cater for all ages and tastes and range from children’s functions to Jazz Sundays and everything in between.
Why not come and give us a try?
We look forward to meeting you and you can be assured of a warm welcome.
