Montrose Golf Links has released details of its new season ticket categories.
Following an assessment of its membership, the organisation has condensed the categories from eight down to five.
This came at the same time as the announcement of its season ticket prices for the 2021 season (see below).
The adult category will now include all adults who are 24 years old or over, with reductions for young adults who are between 18 and 23 years old and also young people under 18 years old.
A new initiative to encourage young people to try the sport is a free season ticket for under-18s if their parent or grandparent is a season ticket holder. A five percent discount is also on offer to couples buying their season tickets together.
There is also the introduction of a six-day ticket for the championship 1562 course, covering Sunday to Friday.
“Following an assessment of Montrose Golf Links’ business model, we have realigned both the categories and the price structure,” said Jeff King, a member of the organisation’s management team.
“The Links are a part of Scottish golf history, and part of the local community.
“These beautiful links courses put Montrose on the map, and are highly regarded by professionals and amateurs alike.
“The 2021 prices do represent a significant increase after several years of minimal rises.
“We are limiting the increases for our Broomfield course, and are also keeping the price rises for young people minimal as providing access to golf for all is one of the most important priorities for us.
“However, we firmly believe the new prices are a fairer reflection of the year-round access available for members to two stunning links courses.
“This is a regrettable but necessary step as Montrose Golf Links works to put the business on a sound financial footing and secure a sustainable future for golf in the town.”
Subscription notices will be sent out to current members in early January. The renewal date has moved to 1 February 2021. This is a change in an administrative date and does not affect the term of a season ticket, which will continue to run until the end of March each year.
There is an option to pay monthly by direct debit, as well to pay in four interest-free instalments.
