It’s only a little over three months until another new season of top-class flat racing begins at Goodwood.

The racecourse is one of the world’s most beautiful and prestigious and has a rich and glamorous history.

The Goodwood Estate has been home to the Dukes of Richmond for more than 300 years and uniquely combines a dedication to tradition with a calendar of innovative and exciting sporting and social events.

Annual membership at the racecourse gives you the chance to experience every one of their 19 race meetings - including five days of Glorious Goodwood - plus many other benefits.

As a member of the Goodwood Horseracing Club (GHRC) you will enjoy the magnificent surroundings of the premier Richmond Enclosure at all meetings, running from May through to October, letting you witness some of the finest racing in the world.

The main attraction is the five-day festival meeting at the end of July – a real highlight of the English sporting and social season. Membership is the only way to gain access to the Richmond Enclosure during this iconic celebration of racing and glamour.

The three-day May Festival at Goodwood provides plenty of early-season thrills and a feast of racing action, while their 1950s-themed August Bank Holiday weekend rekindles the summer holidays of yesteryear over three magical days to create the ultimate day out.

Members receive a wide range of benefits and privileges across the Goodwood Estate, including admission to days at the Festival of Speed and Revival, plus more than 40 reciprocal sporting events and access to The Kennels – Goodwood’s private Members’ clubhouse.

Membership will not only develop your interest in horseracing but also provide an enjoyable, social pastime with like-minded enthusiasts over a 12-month period.
