Avid golfers should consider becoming a member of golf clubs for the many advantages it offers, examples of which are the following:
- Friendship with people of the same passion: A poll conducted three years ago on new golf club members listed the friendly and welcoming atmosphere as the primary reason for their decision to join. A membership allows people to develop relationships and social camaraderie with fellow golf enthusiasts, not just in the golf course, but also in the clubhouse or other facilities.
- Unlimited play: Those who love playing nine or 18 rounds regularly will find it more cost-effective to pay the annual membership fee compared to paying every time they go to a golf course. It is easier to improve your golf game when you get to practice for an unlimited amount of time.
- Opportunity to play in competitions: What better way to gauge your golf skills than to join tournaments, leagues, or interclub matches. By applying for a golf club membership, you can find opportunities to participate in competitions and see where you stack up against other golfers.
- Other activities: Many golf clubs do not just have courses, but also other amenities, such as fitness rooms, swimming pools, tennis courts, and many more. Usually, these facilities are exclusive only for members.
