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:
|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).
