Join Us

Membership is open to all.

Club Membership

The Club offers a variety of Membership options and there is no Entrance Fee.  We cater for the avid golfer who wishes to play and participate in competitions on a regular basis, and, those who treat golf less seriously and enjoy the occasional round but want to be a member of a Club.  We have a thriving and active membership and a good social scene to go with it.  In addition, don’t forget that by joining Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club you can also enjoy free rounds of golf at 7 other Clubs plus reduced green fees at 4 more with our reciprocal arrangements. 


Membership application forms can be obtained from the Golf Reception or click here

Application Form

Please return completed forms to the Golf Reception.  If you are an existing golfer with a handicap then please ensure you include the CDH ID number on the form.  Informal New Member meetings are held at the Club on a regular basis when all aspects of membership are explained and there is the opportunity to meet existing members.
