Members often wonder how dues paid to Golf Canada and their provincial golf association are being invested back into the sport. More than 305,000 members comprise Canada’s largest community of golfers and their fees are invested into programs and services designed to enhance the golfer experience. Their contribution to the game is extraordinary.

Here’s a sampling of what your dues support:

But what do I get from membership?

Your joint membership in Golf Canada and your provincial association, introduced in 1948, has always provided you with access to competitive tournaments and the opportunity to maintain an Official Handicap Factor, as well as home delivery of this magazine. But in recent years, a number of new benefits have been added to thank you for your support:

New Score Posting Experiences

The Golf Canada smartphone scoring app provides players with an easy way to track their stats, post scores and keep track of their golfing history. The new mobile-friendly site provides a variety of new features with more coming throughout the season.

Golf Equipment Identification System

Losing your golf equipment can certainly cut into your enjoyment of the game. The new Golf Equipment Identification System is designed to reunite golfers with equipment that has been left behind on the course. Protect your gear by ordering your membership card.

Rewards for playing golf and posting scores

Through the generosity of partners such as TaylorMade-adidas and others, members are eligible to win prizes with every score posted to the Golf Canada Score Centre. In 2015 more than 600 prizes, such as equipment, merchandise and achievement bag tags, were awarded.

Check out the full list on the benefits tab next time you log in to the Score Centre or visit
