Important Changes to Our Membership Terms & Conditions
We regret that we need to make a small change to our membership terms and conditions.
Cards acquired upon first registration are provided on a discounted or 'free' basis, but we cannot continue to replace cards at the current rate without making an appropriate charge.
From Monday 13th November there will be a £10.00 fee to replace lost or damaged cards.
England and Durham cricketer
visited the range recently, seen here with range owner Chris Pope - to try out some new clubs.
It was very interesting to see that he hits a golf ball nearly as far as a cricket ball!

A Great Comment from One of Our Members about Sunderland Golf Centre
''At my place 83p for 25 or 50 during happy hour, which is 9.00 to 11.00 weekdays & 5.00 to 6.00 weekends, provided you top up your card with 1,500 balls for £50. Decent quality balls & great mats. Happy hour is like a retirees' social club. Go there, hit a few balls, have a coffee & a chat.
I can spend most of the morning there. It's attached to an American Golf, but run separately, so I can browse the stock while I'm there too.
I'm there most mornings if I'm not playing.''

THE OPEN COMPETITION;
Nobody guessed that either Cameron Smith would win or that Cameron Young would come second, so we decided to award the prize to the members who went for Rory McIlroy who finished 3rd. Nobody guessed the correct finishing score of 270, but 3 members went for 269 so they each win 3 Srixon/Wilson golf balls.

SUNDERLAND GOLF CENTRE - DRIVING RANGE ASSISTANT MAIN DUTIES
- Serving customers in the kiosk and assisting with ball delivery
- Cleaning and tidying duties listed on ‘daily jobs’
- Preparing and washing golf balls using machines in garage – sometimes manually
- Cleaning, filling and maintaining hot and cold drinks machines
- Basic routine computer work whilst working in the kiosk
- Patrolling the range periodically to ensure tidiness, safe behaviour and collecting balls
There may be times when manual or mechanically driven ball collecting is required in the event of holidays or sickness
This is a small business employing 6 part time staff and whilst 2 of those staff have more specific ‘garage/outside’ work,
range assistants need to be available and able to do all aspects.
Whilst the business will try and accommodate employee availability issues it will operate a shift system which will adjust slightly each March and October when the clocks change and hours of business change accordingly.
Employees should understand that evening work and some weekend hours will be essential.
This is not an exhaustive list. For the majority of the time, staff doing this job work alone.
For their own security and that of the business they need to be vigilant of intruders/unruly or disruptive behaviour and unfortunately may need to eject offenders.
There are some aspects of the jobs which are strenuous, particularly lifting trays of balls and washing
when the golf balls are dirty.
It's that time of year again, the sun hasn’t impressed us quite yet but the lighter nights are definitely on the way and we’ve changed over to our Summer opening hours.
Our Summer Hours are:
MONDAY - FRIDAY | 9:00am - 9:00pm
SATURDAY & SUNDAY | 9:00am - 7:00pm
(Last balls are 30 minutes before closing time)
