Our Points Membership is ideal for those who want to be a member of a golf club, allowing you to play at whatever time that suits you.

For an initial purchase of a minimum of £275.00 (230 points) you can become a member of Hinksey Heights Golf Club.

Points are then deducted according to which day you play and how many holes.

When your points run out you simply top up with a further £275.

Points may not be transferred to another player. Points can't be used to pay for visitors/guests.

If you are planning on playing lots of golf through the year and don't think that points membership is suitable for you, have a look at our full membership options giving you unlimited access.

Hinksey Heights Golf Club is registered under the UK Government’s Community Amateur Sports Club Scheme (CASC). As such the Club is open to all sections of the community. The subscription rates are highly competitive with other golf clubs in the area. In general therefore, our costs do not create an obstacle to members of the community playing. However, HMRC CASC regulations require clubs who have a membership fee in excess of £520 (including costs associated with membership) to make provision for those people in the community who wish to become a member and are able to clearly demonstrate that they cannot afford to pay more than £520 (based on participation once a week). The Club wishes to make membership available to all members of the surrounding community and will therefore offer a Concessionary Membership to those who can clearly demonstrate that they cannot meet the full subscriptions which are otherwise extremely competitive.

Concessionary Members will be entitled to 52 Vouchers a year entitling them to play a full round of golf, provided that such rounds are played out of peak hours – after 10am on weekdays or Sundays (unless the course is otherwise booked for competitions/matches/societies etc). Concessionary Members will be entitled to use one voucher a month to play in Club Competitions at whatever time such competitions are held; Concessionary Members will be exempt (if they so choose) from the normal entry fee for such competitions, but will then not be entitled to benefit from cash/voucher/prize awards that are otherwise on offer.

Concessionary Membership will cost £500 pa, and Concessionary Members will be entitled to borrow sets of 2nd hand Clubs that will be held by the Club for this purpose. Concessionary Members will otherwise be full members of the Club and entitled to vote at General Meetings. To apply for Concessionary Membership, an applicant should submit a standard membership application form together with a letter clearly explaining why he/she is unable to meet the full costs of membership. In line with the practice of Oxfordshire Councils, Concessionary Membership will be considered for those who are:

-  getting income-based job seekers allowance

-  getting income support

-  getting working tax credit (but not child tax credit)

-  getting council tax credit (but not 25% reduction for single occupier)

Other claims will be considered by the Club on a case-by-case basis. 

The application and letter should be submitted to the Secretary/Manager for consideration by the Management Committee. Those who are enrolled as Concessionary Members will be required to resubmit a case for remaining in this category (rather than paying full subscription rates) on annual renewal, and must notify us of any changes in their circumstances, which would affect the eligibility for the Concessionary Membership.

Consideration is given to all applicants to this Scheme is open to both existing and new members alike.
