    Posted: 05/February/2018 at 20:48
Hi all

I recently posted that my partner who is a member of a golf club had his membership suspended because I made a complaint to Liquor Licensing about the club's irresponsible service of alcohol. As a consequence they suspended his paid golf membership. My partner went to a meeting with the club licencee and they re-instated his membership on the spot without explaining the reasons they felt warranted to suspend his golf membership - the gist from the licencee was 'let's move on' and causes and effects were not discussed.

During that meeting it was made clear I was forever banned from the club / public tavern.

I understand any licencee has the right to ban anyone from their premises but surely this is prejudicial and not the way bans are supposed to be imposed.

The OLGR suggests that ' Natural justice, procedural fairness and privacy rights should apply to bans'

The ban has not been communicated to me, and I can't see any procedural fairness.

What should I do?
