The social benefits:
Meet and play golf with hundreds of fellow club members on the course, in the practice area, or in the clubhouse. Clubs often arrange social get-togethers for their members, and your club captain will help integrate you in the club with meet-and-greets when you join.
The competitive benefits:
Match play, stroke play, Stableford, Greensomes, Texas Scramble, weekly medals. Whether you know what these terms mean or not, all clubs host a range of competitive golf just for their members throughout the year. Why not see how many different competitive formats you can tick off in your first year of membership?
Course and facility access:
Your golf course membership will give you unrestricted access to the facility, such as the practice areas and driving range, clubhouse, changing rooms and shower facilities.
You decide the length of the round:
While this is true for visitors as well of course, they will be charged for a full 9 or 18 holes to play the course. We find golf club members feel much less obliged to finish a full social round compared to paying visitors.
Discounts on food and beverages:
Partial to a caffeinated pick-me-up, post-round thirst-quencher, or a half-way house sandwich? Golf club membership typically brings with it a discounted rate on food and drinks from the club, and at some clubs, merchandise and apparel from the pro shop.
It’s easier to improve:
If your aiming to improve your game, there is no question that joining a golf club will help you on your way. You’ll have closer access to a PGA Professional coach, the option to play with better players regularly, and quickly learn how to play the nuances and breaks of your home club course.
