How Can You Get Your Membership Card?
At the beginning of the season, we are often asked how personalized membership cards are distributed. Many options are available.
 
Are you a member in a member-club? In this case, it is possible that the administration office has already ordered everyone's card to distribute them. Otherwise, you will be able to order yours through the Score Centre or GGGolf when you will input your first rounds of the season.
 
You are not a member in any golf club? Then, you can become a member by joining our Public Golfer Program. You will receive your membership card by mail.
