FISHING

We have a beautiful feature pond here at Barlborough Links Golf Club that is open daily from 8am – 8pm (gates locked at 8:30pm) for carp fishing.

We have two fishing memberships here, however if you would like to ‘try before you buy’, you can fish the pond for one day at a cost of £6 – this is a one-off session per person after which you must either join as an Affiliate or Full member.  Please call Reception on 01246 813111 to book a trial session.

Full Membership

Full Fishing Memberships are available at a cost of £160 per year – you can join by competing our membership form here.  You will need a valid email address to complete this form, your fishing licence number and you will need to come to Reception to have your photo taken for your membership card and to pay. 

Affiliate Membership

If you don’t fish enough to warrant purchasing a full fishing membership, you must join our Affiliate Membership to be able to fish on a day ticket.  It costs just £10 for a membership card up to 31 December 2022 and gives you immediate access to affiliate member rates on driving range, The Links Course, FootGolf and coffee shop.  You can join by filling in our membership form here – you will need a valid email address, your fishing licence number and you will need to come to Reception to have your photo taken for your membership card and to pay.  

All fishing pegs must be booked in advance either in person at Reception or by phoning Reception on 01246 813111.
