Hello. I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
Are you online now
Your dispute would be about whether you can use the pitch and putt course for free, green fees having been demanded from you recently where you belive they are not allowed. If you are having to apply for use of something you believe should be free as part of a membership agreement then you could in theory issue a small claim for compensation ie re-imbursement of the money you have paid. You would not be able to get any order in the small claims court about your rights to use the pitch and putt. only money could be awarded.
If you want to get a court to rule on your rights the cost of getting this would be very high and there would be a risk of having to pay the otherside's costs too.
If you are a member of the cub is there a dispute resolution/grievance process you could use?
Thanks, ***** ***** not pay any money, I was approached halfway round and again at last hole by three people. Don't know of any grievance procedure. People I spoke to in the golf club also beleive they could play p&p for free.
I don't think this is something that is suitable for the law courts. Why not just keep playing and insisting on your position if confronted. If necessary then the matter can be raised at a committee meeting or some other suitable forum within the club.
Ok thanks, ***** ***** if I would be up for confrontation but I see where your going, thanks again
