Any paid up member of BCT&C or their employees, family and guests may join the Society – currently there is no planned extra charge for this.
You do not need an official handicap to join and /or play as the Society is able to accommodate new / non players.
The Society is co-ordinated by Past-President Bill Perkins. Other posts are elected at the AGM, held annually in February.
Tim Allen, General Manager of Playgolf Bournemouth, PGA professional, Dorset Junior Team Coach and BCTC member has expressed a very strong desire to work with the Society to establish it as a premier organisation.
Golfing events are held at a local course on the third Wednesday of the month, from March through to October with a target cost of £35 to include a meal.
Courses played 2012
Courses played include Iford, Bulbury Woods, Meyrick Park, Crane Valley, Moors Valley, Rushmore, Canford and Burley. Regular players are invited to join the Chamber team at various Charity events through the summer (not necessarily the best players though).

In 2012 the Chamber GS decided to have a prize for longest walk (a euphemism for the lowest score). This was awarded amid great hilarity to the BCTC team.
In the evening there was a Pig Roast which was open to all BCTC members & friends with putting competitions etc for attendees.
In December 2011 and 2012 membes of the Society dressed up as Santa Claus to play 18 holes. So successful was this that it is planned to repeat it each year but to ask players to garner sponsorship for their insane antics.
