Coronavirus Update
We are taking pragmatic steps to retain as many bookings as is reasonably possible, and also encouraging concerned clients to delay any cancellation decisions until the situation is clearer. 
Given all the uncertainty surrounding the Covid 19 virus, we want to give you more time this year before setting out on your trip.
The Club will offer concerned clients, whose travel is imminent, to cancel taking a full 100% future travel credit in place of all monies they have paid to date.  We will offer an extended period of time up to 18 months ahead and also honouring the price paid when making the original booking. 

The Club is also operating strict protocols for when using the club facilities, please ensure you read the following document before your visit.
