Crown Golf, Europe’s largest golf course owner/operator, has introduced a special ‘credit crunch membership initiative’ in response to the economic downturn.

The group has added a redundancy clause to its memberships that allows golfers to suspend their memberships should they lose their job. In addition, members are also allowed to transfer membership to another player if they can no longer afford it.

At present Crown Golf has over 22,000 members in 34 golf clubs across the country. The new membership scheme also allows an individual club member eight courtesy rounds at each of the other clubs in the group’s golf club network.
