Sunday Swindle “the low down”

This tab is to basically explain what we’re about on Sunday mornings at Gorleston Golf Club.

There are 2 options

Option 1

Fully paid up member

The individual pays £3 a week into the society coffers and this entitles the member to participate in the quarterly competitions we run between us. At the end of each quarter a nominal sum of money (£120 - £160) is paid out to the winners of that quarterly competition, competitions can be team or individual.

The money that is surplus to requirements goes towards a free Golfing weekend away (Sunday / Monday) for the members on a date in the summer which is suitable to all (if possible) which will include drinks as well. Normally our Events manager Lee will haggle for the best deals around at the time of booking and then try and get us a bit more off .

On Competition days we will block book tee times with members who wish to play in that competition, the tee times are drawn at random so everyone gets to play with someone different each time which alleviates from the boredom of playing with the same faces each week.

If a fully paid up member wins or receives any cash from competitions he is not legally obliged to hand it over for club funds but will probably find the envelope has already been rifled by the society treasurer and the cash inside already in the “Away day beer Kitty”. Any complaints on this subject can be taken up with Big Bird himself and his “Wreck it Ralph” fists.

Option 1a

As above but £5 a month which will go towards prize money and the fee does not include the annual awayday.


Option 2

Social member

You pay nothing but get to play with some half decent blokes who are rather light hearted and not stuck up twats like some people. If you wish to donate any competition cash winnings to the Option 1 members beer kitty then you will be made more welcome.

Option 2 members can become Option 1 members by paying up fully the arrears outstanding from the previous Swindle Freebee Away day. For more info ask Stu or Lee.


Free Sundays (non competition weeks)

We get to the club for 8am to determine our groups of play for that morning, we will chuck an extra £3 in for that mornings in house comp with winnings being split over the best front and back 9’s and overall score, if in the event of a tie in any of the 3 cats then the money goes into club funds whether you are an Option 1 or Option 2 member.


If you wish to join us get in touch via email at or see Stu or Lee at the club on a Sunday. Not sure who we are then ask “H” to point us out, not sure who “H” is then he’s the pissed up old bloke in the bar next to the hoover.
