Visiting groups, including societies, are advised that any shortfall in numbers after the final confirmation, 3 days in advance, will be charged in full. This applies to golf and food that has been pre-booked.
In the event of a reduced number of golfers or no-shows on the day of play, full payment is due for unused tee times.
Moyvalley Hotel & Golf Resort requests that the group event organiser make each member of his/her group aware of the above conditions.
To facilitate the smooth running of the time sheet in terms of pace of play and where the time sheet is busy, Moyvalley Hotel & Golf Resort reserve the right to pair groups up into four-balls where possible.
If a single golfer, pair or three-ball wish to have a whole line to themselves, please contact our Golf Shop who can advise on options available. A surcharge may apply for this service.
Golf societies must play in four-balls as far as is reasonably possible. For example, a group of 18 golfers must play in 3 x Four-Balls and Two Three-Balls.
Course Closure Policy
In the event of course closure, where Management deems the course unplayable, an alternative date will be offered (based on availability) or payment will be refunded at the discretion of Management.

Temporary suspensions of play for lightning and other dangerous situations will be kept to a minimum.
