What is a Golf Club

If you are part of a club of 25 or more who play together on a regular basis, you may join the Golf Ontario and Golf Canada as a Golf Club.

Steps for Creating Club:


Pick your Club Name


Select a President and Handicap Chairman


“Golf Club” means a group that pays a membership fee to the Association and has been formed by at least 25 individuals who are not members of a Golf Facility. A Golf Club 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.


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