It is fully equipped with the latest Foresight Sports Gc2 launch monitor, Projection unit, PING Nflight simulation and analysis software, V1 swing analysis and 100cm display units. add to this a massive array of fitting and teaching equipment options and Kesby has created a full swing simulation solution to any golfers’ needs in Sydney’s Northwest, Penrith and Hawkesbury regions. “Helping every member or public golfer to improve their game and then watching the satisfaction they get from achieving that is fulfilling and exciting and one of the main reasons I became a golf professional,” Kesby says. So it seems everything is going and growing great for Windsor country Golf club’s future, which is welcome good news for the golf industry. • FACT FILE Windsor Country Golf Club Phone: 02 4577 4390 Website: www.windsorgolfclub.com.au All aboard for top-value memberships and tee times a SaGe golf club industry person once equated managing and marketing a public golf course to being similar to operating an airline. their cut-through philosophy was that, every unsold/empty seat on a flight, when it took off, could never be sold again and equated that to unsold/empty tee-times at a public golf course at any time of any day. that would seem to be the thinking at Windsor country Golf club which offers myriad opportunities to play golf. General Manager Rob McLean and his Board of directors are always looking for ways to get more public golfers teeing off. However their unique best-value and successful membership-boosting offer is for seven-day limited* Golf australia handicap memberships (with no joining fee) for $449 valid until September 30 2016. Mathematically rounded out, that means as a new member you will have access to almost 200 days of unlimited golf which equates to about $2.10 a day. Members joining under the $249 Limited Membership category are welcome to play in Windsor club events for a competition fee of $25 each time. However if they plan to play in competitions frequently they can trade up for just $200 more ($449) for the no strings attached 7 days full membership, with competition fees just $15. at some time every day of the week there is a special top value all-inclusive deal to attract public players. one of the best is 18 holes for four with two carts plus a beer or a soft drink from Sunday (after 11 am) to Friday for just $99 -- less than half the normal price. No wonder all of the club’s 25 carts are booked out almost every Sunday taking up this offer. there also are outside-competition hours offers (one is especially for tradesmen playing after work) which include meals and drinks and cut-price golf. Windsor also can arrange rare prime- time public playing spots on Saturday during daylight saving months, which are blended in between their Members’ competition rounds. there are eight different categories of memberships available at Windsor scaling down from the $1170 a year seven-day unlimited golf deal (which includes $170 in drink vouchers) to just $50 a year (full handicap and unlimited golf ) for cadets aged 8-12 years – all without joining fees. In between there are special full memberships for those aged over 65 ($970, includes drink vouchers $140), Pensioners ($770, includes drink vouchers $180), associates (women, $760, includes drink vouchers $80), Limited-7 day membership ($680, includes drink vouchers $170), Post Junior (aged 18-25) ($480, includes drink vouchers $80) and Juniors (13-17 years of age, $75) Membership year runs from 1st october to 30th September, and pro rata discounts apply. If you’re a public golfer wanting to book a prime tee time or a would-be club handicap member, there’s definitely a deal to suit you now, at the go-ahead Windsor country Golf club.
