One Great Club – Two Great Courses
Formed in 2013 as an amalgamation of Thorpe Wood and Orton Meadows Golf Clubs, we aim to offer golfers in Peterborough and the surrounding areas a refreshing new approach to golf membership.
Cost-Effective, Friendly Golf
Based at the East of England’s two premier pay and play courses, we can give golfers of all abilities membership of a recognised golf club. Our aim is to make golf more affordable, without the fees, rules and regulations associated with private clubs. You can control the cost of playing golf to suit your needs, by selecting one of our “pay and play” or “green fee inclusive” options.
Registered with England Golf, our members acquire and maintain an official handicap. We hold competitions and matches every week, open to everyone from the social texas scrambler, the regular competition and team player, to serious scratch players. Whatever your age, gender, handicap or ability, everyone is welcome and we encourage you to take part.

These cards may be submitted for 9 or 18 holes, or any combination of the two but must be for a minimum of 54 holes. The player's name is to be clearly recorded in the box for Player A and his score for each hole is to be recorded in column A of the scorecard. The Marker's name (printed) and handicap is to be recorded, legibly, in the box for Player B. The Marker must have a competition handicap. be a member of NPGC and know the rules of golf. Each card should be dated and marked “For Handicap”.
The cards must be signed by the player and marker in the appropriate places at the bottom of the card. Retain the first and second cards until the third one is completed, Members are to email high quality easily readable photos of the 3 cards to scorecards.npgc@gmail,com and submitted within a six month period. The cards are not to be handed in. Members will be advised by email when their handicap is allocated so an email must be provided.

The Club holds a number of individual medal, stableford and trophy competitions throughout the year. Entry to all these competitions is via the PSi monitor located in the Driving Range at Thorpe Wood and by a similar monitor in Golf Reception at Orton Meadows. New members will be advised how to use the booking system and the inputting of results after playing in a competition. In addition, the Club has access to a website www.howdidido.co.uk and this enables members to book into Club competitions, and to view results without the need to visit the courses.
Throughout the summer months the Club plays matches, both home and away, against other Clubs in the area. Although some of these fixtures are for the lower handicap player, the majority are for other members with higher handicaps. In addition, there are mixed matches and also matches for seniors aged 55 years and above. Sign-up sheets for matches are on the respective notice boards at the two courses
