2. Arrangements for reciprocal golf may be made not more than 4 weeks in advance
3. This arrangement applies only to adult male and female members with a current CONGU handicap and only available in accordance with their membership category. Thus, 5 day members may not take advantage of the scheme at weekends.

6. Confirm what the club’s requirements are for introduction (letter, email or Member’s Bar Card). Failure to produce appropriate introduction will mean you will be denied courtesy.
7. If a confirmation letter is required please email MHGC office (office@mhgolf.co.uk) with the name of the club you are visiting, the date, the time and the names and handicaps of your group. MHGC office will then email the club and copy you in, to confirm that the confirmation document has been sent.

Junior Golfers Reciprocal Arrangements:

Juniors who request access to reciprocal golf must take actions to ensure that they are safe at all times – not only on the golf course but also when travelling to another course. To this end It will be necessary for most of them to be accompanied by a responsible golfer. That said, there will be juniors of 17, 18 and 19 who are able to travel and play without an adult and this must be fully discussed with the other club during the booking process. Please note that our juniors are not allowed reciprocal golf at Peterborough Milton nor theirs at MHGC.

Visitors to Market Harborough
10. Will be allowed to play during quiet times (generally 10.30 onwards) and after 2.00pm at weekends, subject to availability
11. Must have phoned in advance to check availability of the tee
12. Will not be afforded courtesy unless pre-booked and must bring either a letter of introduction or a current Members’ card from the home club
