Associate Club Membership
NCGA Associate Clubs are normally found at places of employment or through social groups. An Associate Club is a golf organization that is not tied to a golf course facility, is organized primarily to pursue the game of golf and provides an opportunity to join and enjoy the services provided by the NCGA.
Qualifications of an Associate Club are as follows:
1. The applicant group must have at least 20 active members.
2. All members of the associate club must be a member of the NCGA through that group; 100% membership with the NCGA is required.
3. The applicant group must have a written set of by-laws, constitution or written policy and procedure manual which governs its activities.
4. The committees operating under the bylaws shall supervise golf activities and maintain the integrity of the NCGA/USGA handicap system.
5. Club members must have a reasonable and regular opportunity to play golf with one another.
6. The applicant club must be an established golf club which has been in operation for at least one year. This can be waived by the NCGA Board of Directors if the club meets all other requirements, and if it is determined that by establishing such a club it would not be detrimental to golf clubs that are already NCGA member clubs.
As an Associate Club Member, you are eligible for all NCGA Member Benefits in addition to any benefits your Associate Club offers.
Fees vary by each club. We recommend you find an Associate Club in your area and contact them to find out their rates.
You may join an existing Associate Club – find a club seeking new members, or golfers may also choose to form their own NCGA Associate Club as a path to membership.
