Guidelines to Membership

Important Information for Proposers 

If you are considering proposing a candidate for Membership of the Club, the Proposer must, in the first instance, complete the Membership Request Form

After consideration by the Membership Sub-Committee, if agreed, an online application form will be sent to the Seconder, Candidate and Referees. The Application Form must contain the endorsement of 6 Referees. The Proposer, Seconder and Referees must have all been members of the Club for 5 years, as well as have known the candidate for 5 years. The Referees also need to be a strong cross section of members of the Club.

While completing the online form the Candidate will be invited to select a category they would prefer. Presently categories are capped as to the number of players in each one to maintain good playability for each category of members.  The Candidate may be put in another category and have their name added to a Transfer List for a later date. As an example, if they would like to become a 7-Day member, it is likely they will be offered 6-Day membership and have their name added to the list.

Once the Candidate has submitted their online form, an email will be sent to the Proposer confirming receipt and advising a $1,000 deposit (non-refundable) will be invoiced to the Candidate. The deposit will be credited against their Entrance Fee upon admission. The Candidate will receive a letter of explanation along with the invoice by email. This does not apply to Junior Candidates.

Once the Referees are validated, a Ballot Paper will be completed and posted on the Club’s Notice Board and website for 14 days.

There may be times when the Committee may choose to meet the Candidate via a formal interview or through a game of golf.

At the Committee Meeting immediately following the 14 days on the Notice Board, each of the Committee Members and Vice-Presidents, will return the Ballot Sheet on which they have voted to approve, or otherwise, the candidate’s application for Membership.

The newly elected Candidate will then be placed on the Membership Waitlist. When invited to membership of the Club they will be invoiced for Entrance Fees and Subscription Fees, on a pro rata basis as required. Along with the invoice, the new Member will receive a welcome letter inviting them to meet with the Chief Executive and/or the Director of Golf.

At that meeting, the new Member will be inducted into the Club and receive their Welcome Pack.

Each year, Members who have joined in the previous 12 months will be invited, along with their Proposer for a game of golf and welcome function.
