Frequently Asked Questions

about Memberships

Does the Club offer a family membership category?

There is no stand alone family membership option but a family group would receive a discount of 10% on their total subscription. A minimum of one parent and one junior or associate qualifies for the family discount.

Please explain the difference between the Full Golf and Limited Golf options

On payment of an additional subscription, broken down into full golf and limited golf options, members are given a reduction in green fees.

The full golf and limited golf option remains standard for all members at 75% of the base subscription for full golf option and 61% for limited golf. The full golf option allows you to use the golf course at any time at a greens fee rate of R155 per 18 holes. The limited golf option allows members to play golf at a greens fee rate of R155 during our off peak times and R250 during our peak times per 18 holes. Our peak times are Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and the whole day Saturday. If you do not take the golfing option you can still play golf at a greens fee rate of R250 per 18 holes.

A member may elect to take up or drop the golf option on renewal of their annual subscription, unless otherwise stipulated by the Board or if a golf waiting list is implemented.

If you would like to discuss this option further please contact Tammy Pillay in our Membership Department.

When are annual subscriptions renewed?

Subscription renewal is raised at the end of October and is due and payable before the 1st January, if on the 31st January subscription is not paid, a letter will be posted to member, advising them of their non payment, if on the 28th/29th February subscription is still not paid, another letter is posted to members, advising them of non payment and that subscription has to be paid by the 31st March or their membership will be ceased in bad standing. If by the 1st April subscription is still not paid membership is be ceased in bad standing. Unfortunately members can only be given concession until the end of March to pay their subscription after which, they can sign a debit order for their subscription or their membership will be ceased. Members will be sent a letter via registered post informing them that their membership has been terminated.

Members can pay their subscription over six months, via debit order, with the debit order form submitted by no later than 16th January. Please note that interest in charged on outstanding amount when paying via debit order.

Am I able to change my class of Membership?

If a member wishes to change to a class of membership with a higher entrance fee and subscription, they will be obliged to pay the difference between the entrance fees and subscription at that time for the relevant classes of membership.  Any changes in membership class need to be received in writing by 31 December of each year.

Should I wish to reinstatement my Membership after resigning, will I have to pay an entrance fee?

If the individual was resigned in good standing, they are only required to pay a prorated subscription equivalent to the number of months remaining in the years in addition to the reinstatement fee.

If their membership was ceased due to non payment of subscription, they are required to pay any fees that were due at the time of membership being ceased, plus the full subscription for the year they reinstate as well as the reinstatement fee.

What is the policy with regard to resignation of Membership?

A member is required to give written notice of their resignation before the 31st December, for the following year.
