Golf Ontario Handicap System | St. Marys Golf

Dear SMGCC Golf Members,

As many of you are aware, Golf Ontario (GO) (formerly the Ontario Golf Association (OGA)) significantly raised their membership fees a couple of years ago, leading to the withdrawal of the St. Marys Golf & Country Club, and many area Ontario golf courses from the Association. As a result, our members have been unable to track their official handicaps on the Golf Canada website. While many members continued tracking their approximate handicaps on Tee-On, those members requiring official handicaps for GO-sanctioned tournaments had difficulty registering for those golf tournaments.

After a lengthy phone discussion, the GO has stated that they recognize the problem and have promised a more flexible pricing solution for next year. In the interim, the St. Marys Golf & Country Club will join the GO for 2016 at the minimum level, allowing those members who wish official handicaps to purchase Golf Canada memberships at our cost of $30.25 (+ HST), compared to with the individual Golf Canada membership cost of $49.95. If you require an: official handicap for tournaments, play in a group that uses an official handicap, or just want to track your official golf handicap, Golf Canada memberships can be purchased in the Pro Shop for the following:

Type Fee
Adult Male $30.50 + HST
Adult Female $30.50 + HST
Junior Boy $20 + HST
Junior Girl $20 + HST

Note: once purchased, we will re-activate your account OR help you create a new account (new Golf Canada members).

Congrats on getting this deal done with Golf Ontario! Hopefully all members who use their handicaps in some form will take advantage of this opportunity and post their scores.
