Before beginning the application process, please read the following:

  • Annual membership dues for Adults (ages 19+) are $47 and Junior Golfers (ages 18 and under) are encouraged to join Youth on Course for $20.
  • Membership is valid for 365 days from the date of application. An auto-renew option is available.
  • The opening screen of the Online Join and Renew dashboard allows you to search for a club by name or zip code. Zip code will search within 100 miles of the location you enter and all clubs are open to both male and female golfers.
