We hope you all enjoyed a safe and happy Christmas and that everyone got the opportunity to get away, recharge and spend time with friends and family over Summer.
As advised last year, we have made the decision to switch to a new online booking system called Clubman. Mike Forbes has been working hard to get all the Club’s data and information into the new online system and you will shortly receive a welcome email with access details.
The system will streamline the process of most bookings including automatically approving and invoicing, which will both save the Bookings Officer time as well as give members certainty on their booking request.
There will however be a number of changes in how bookings are managed that members should be aware of;
1. If a booking is approved, the system will automatically invoice you and require payment. If payment is not made within the required time your booking will automatically cancel. You will receive reminders during this time.
2. Payment can only be made online via Clubman. There will be the option of credit card or bank transfer. These payment methods can also be securely saved to your profile for future booking automatic payments. Bpay or direct deposit will no longer be available.
3. If a member is not financial either via non payment of subs, lockers, levies or a recent booking (even if they are not due), the system will not permit new booking requests.
4. Bookings invoices can be sent to guests directly rather than via the member.
Full detailed instructions on how to book will be provided prior to preseason bookings opening (April).
Overall, we think Clubman will be a benefit to Members, will assist the booking office to become more efficient and will aid the Committee in decision making due to its superior reporting capacity.
The lodges have been well used over Summer and looks like it will be the most successful Green Season ever.
Bookings are coming in fast for Labour Day and Easter so get in quick if you don’t want to miss out. The resort links below show the great variety of Green Season activities on offer.
