1. Why are car park charges being introduced?
The growing number of visitors in recent years to the Common and the Golf Club has placed increasing pressure on the existing car parks. This has resulted in members of the Golf Club and patrons of the café and restaurant facing increasing difficulty in finding parking spaces. The Cotswold Hub, who own the Golf Club business, have therefore decided to use a parking company, Parkingeye, to provide a long-term solution to managing parking.
Cleeve Common Trust have decided to include the Quarry Car Park in this solution, in order to avoid congestion at the narrow entrance and the access lane, which may also pose a risk to visitors on foot, cycle or horseback.
2. When will charges be brought in?
The scheme is expected to be turned on from 24th July 2023.
3. What do I pay as a golfer [Visitor or Member]?
All golfers at Cleeve Hill Golf Club can park for free as long as a tee time is booked, and green fee is paid for on the day of visit. Please refer to Question 4 for information on what to do when you arrive on-site.
Members of Cleeve Hill Golf Club are entitled to park for free as part of their Membership package.
