A new year is almost upon us… which means it’s time you should be thinking about joining a golf club for 2019.

At least that's what we reckon. Why? Because there's never been a better time to do so. Access to golf courses and clubs has never been better than it is right now and, in terms of pure affordability, it's the best it has ever been, too.

That's why, in our current edition, we have created a special guide to making 2019 the year that you join the club.

Here's what you’ll all find inside issue 168, the final edition of bunkered for 2018…
