The County Card Scheme
What is the County Card Scheme?
The Derbyshire County Card Scheme enables Members of Affiliated Clubs, to play at other courses in Derbyshire and throughout most of England, at reduced Green Fee rates - sometimes by as much as 50%.
The scheme mirrors those which have been adopted in most County Unions and provides benefits to Club Members, Clubs and the County Union. Unlike Commercial 2 for 1 schemes ALL the income generated by the County Union goes straight back into the game at grass roots level by giving all our juniors a greatly reduced affiliation fee and to assist with the cost of coaching all our junior squads at U12,U14,U16 and U18 level.
