Congrats. Shy bairns get nowt is the phrase used up here 😁. Based on talking to a recent captain, Male, most clubs said yes, only the odd one said no. Probably best to stick to your own county though I suspect for most positive responses.
I remember back in 2014 when I was Captain we were having a club day out at Royal St.Georges. I asked the organiser if he would enquire about the possibility of granting me courtesy of the course and I would throw the green fee into the pot to reduce the cost that all the other players would incur.
Organiser rang up RSG maybe three weeks before we were due to play and was told that it wouldn't be possible as the committee wouldn't have time to sit to consider the matter!!
In 2016 I pitched up "unannounced" at a well regarded members club local to me, just on the off chance that I could get a round. I happened to be wearing my old Captains jumper and the pro noticed and promptly halved my green fee. That was the only time I ever benefited from my time as Captain in terms of getting a "freebie".
my better half is due to be lady captain this year and has already been granted courtesy at Hill side and a heavily reduced rate at Southport and Ainsdale
Royal Birkdale also granted a free round but it would be over £180 for
me to join her so that is on the back burner at the moment
all she did was ring the club you would like to play at and ask if they offer courtesy, they will confirm if they do or not and normally ask for a letter from your club secretary confirming your lady captain
I hope this helps and you enjoy your vice captain year this year 🏌🏿♂️👍
I don't really understand why there are still separate captains these days for mean and women. I would have thought it makes more sense to have a single club captain. But then I don't really follow the club workings.
