How to Join FBGC
If you would like to join Freshwater Bay Golf Club, we will be most happy to arrange a complimentary round of golf so you can view the course. We can even provide a member to act as a “guide” if required. Please let the Secretary know suitable dates and times.

Freshwater Bay Golf Club is known on the Isle of Wight as the ‘friendly club’ and has a varied and vibrant membership. There are regular club and inter-club competitions and our members enjoy an excellent relationship with other golf clubs both on the Island and on the mainland. Members can play other Isle of Wight Clubs at reduced rates and there are reciprocal arrangements with mainland golf clubs where our members can play a round free of charge when pre-arranged through the Club Secretary.
The Club offers a concessionary playing membership rate to persons who can demonstrate that their respective rate of subscription presents a genuine barrier to joining. The whole application process of this concessionary rate, which will be subject to an annual review, will be handled in a discreet and confidential manner, and it involves no reduction of normal voting rights or membership privileges.
Reserved Tee Times
The 1st Tee is normally reserved for members as follows:
Mornings: until 0930 (to 1000 on Sunday)
Thursday: 0930 to 1045 for Ladies competitions.
Saturday: 12.00 to 14.00 (British Summer Time) – 11.30 to 1300 (GMT)
Playing members may introduce a guest to play at a reduced fee. However this concession is limited to one guest at a time and always providing that the same guest is not introduced on more than six occasions in any one calendar year.
Reduced Green Fees on Other Island Courses
