The club will be open to everyone on Monday, August 15 and 22, from 11am-1pm and 7-9pm. If those dates don’t suit, the doors will also be open on Thursday, August 18 and 25 with the sames times applicable.

And, just as an alternative, members and visitors are invited to come and test out the facilities on Wednesday, August 17 and 24, from 10am-1pm. The club boasts a number of excellent facilities, including a restaurant, two bars, meeting/conference room and a large car park.

“The open days have proved to be very successful in previous years,” said club manager Rod Coleman.

“It’s a chance for people to come along to see what we have on offer . . . and hopefully, we can pick up a few new members as well.

“Everyone will be made welcome.”
