Q: Why the increase in rates?
A: The 10% increase in membership fees, packages, and green fee rates reflects the inflationary cost of
operations. It is necessary in order to address long overdue maintenance projects, and to remain on par with area
courses. With the increase, GGCC continues to be well below Summerheights, Nation and Casselview, and on par
with Lancaster and La Cite. The quality of the course/grounds speaks for itself and is recognized far afield. A source
of pride for the GGCC.
Q: What are new Green Fee rates?
A: Green fees in 2022 will be set at $39.00 weekdays and $44.00 for the weekend (Saturday/Sunday/Holidays).
Q: What promotions are available for the 2022 golf season?
A: The GGCC is offering 2 different (and separate) promotions for 2022:
- The first promotion applies to new members only (you must not have been a member for at least
two full seasons). If you pay for a full non-discounted 2022 membership now, you get to play for
the balance of the 2021 season for free.
- The second promotion is for renewals or new members who choose not to play the balance of
the 2021 season. If you pay for your 2022 membership before December 31st 2021, you will
receive a 7% discount off the price of a full golf membership.
Q: Why the change in starting date for the “New Member Promotion”?
A: The new member promotion is consistent with other courses. Moving it back to Sept 15th was done in order to
minimize the impact on green fees. As of September 28, 2021 twelve new memberships had been purchased.
Q: What is a “Couples Membership”?
A: The new Couples membership is designed to encourage couples to purchase memberships together by making
it financially enticing to do so. The GGCC is looking to promote a sense of community and pride of belonging, and
to that end has decided to introduce ways and means to make that possible (see changes to family/junior
memberships also). The discount is on par with industry standards.
Q: Do I have to pay the Golf Canada registration if I purchase a membership?
A: No. Membership to Golf Canada is now optional and no longer included in the GGCC membership fee. If a
member chooses to compete and requires membership to Golf Canada, the Club will facilitate the registration at a
cost of $45.00.
Q: Are charitable tournament green fees covered in my membership?
A: No. Charitable tournaments are considered independent of GGCC membership and green fees are to be paid in
full to the organizers.
Q: Is there an advantage to paying the membership in full before year end?
A: Yes. Members enjoy a 7% discount if account is paid in full by December 31st.
Q: Can I combine promotions?
A: No. The membership rate discount (by Dec 31st 2021) is only applicable if no other promotions have been
applied (example; the ‘New Member’ promotion).
Q: Is there an expiry on the 10 and 20 game packages?
A: Yes. Packages purchased for the 2022 golf season (and onward) expire upon the closing of the course for that
season. There will, however, be a grace period of one season to allow current package holders (2021 & prior
purchases) to use up their rounds during the 2022 golf season. No carry-over rounds will be recognized after that.
Q: Am I considered a club member if I purchase a “Green Fee Package” of several games?
A: No. The Green Fee Packages do not entitle the purchaser to membership privileges (ie: participation in Club
tournaments, qualifiers for Intersectional Teams, complimentary warm-up range balls, complimentary pull carts
Q: Is there an increase in the “Cart Membership”?
A: No. Cart memberships will remain at $750.00 for the 2022 season. Non-membership rate will be $15.00 for a
shared cart with an additional $5.00 surcharge if a player chooses to ride alone ($20.00).
