Create a Golf Group

If you are part of a group of 15 or more who play together on a regular basis, you may join the Golf Ontario and Golf Canada as a Golf Group.

Steps for Creating Group:

Pick your Group Name


Select a President and Handicap Chairman


“Golf Group” means a group that has been formed by at least 15 individuals who are not members of a Golf Club. A Golf Group does not own, lease, manage, operate or control a golf course. It operates under by-laws with an individual or committee appointed to supervise golf activities and maintain the integrity of the handicap system. The Golf Group must establish the appropriate committees and otherwise meet all criteria set out in the By-law for Member Clubs.


Group Administrator – please review the following forms. Your Group will be invoiced annually based on membership count. Please note that the Handicap Service is optional – with an additional fee per member.
