- What is ClubLink?
ClubLink is one of the world’s largest owners and operators of golf clubs with 54.5, 18-hole equivalent championship and eight nine-hole academy courses at 41 locations in Ontario, Quebec and Florida.
- What are the benefits of a ClubLink Membership?
ClubLink Members enjoy the benefits of a traditional private club, with the additional benefit of reciprocal access to more than 50 championship golf courses.
- How to choose which Club to join?
To ensure Members receive the most enjoyment from their membership, it is very important to join a Home Club where they will play the majority of their golf. Members of each Club enjoy Home Club Member privileges, which include protection of tee times during the high demand periods.
- What is a membership fee?
ClubLink's membership fee is the same as an initiation fee or entrance fee at other golf clubs. In contrast to other clubs, however, our membership fee is payable over a number of years, interest free. Unlike member clubs outside of ClubLink, if at any time, for whatever reason, you wish to no longer be a ClubLink Member, you are not obligated to pay outstanding membership fees that have not been billed. *Applicable in Sun City only
- Can membership fees be financed?
ClubLink offers a range of payment plans which include interest free financing over a minimum of six annual installments. Members also have the option to pay in annual or monthly installments (some restrictions apply).
- What is a Member's reciprocal access to other Clubs?
Members who join a Silver Club have access to all Silver, Gold and Daily Fee Clubs* without a reciprocal fee (subject to availability.) Silver Members have access to Platinum Clubs for a reciprocal fee. The reciprocal fee is waived at Platinum Clubs if the Member's Home Club is closed for a non-Member, full shotgun event.
Members who join a Gold Club have access to all Silver, Gold, Platinum and Daily Fee Clubs* without a reciprocal fee (subject to availability.) Gold Members have access to Prestige Clubs for a reciprocal fee. The reciprocal fee is waived at Prestige Clubs if the Member's Home Club is closed for a non-Member, full shotgun event.
Members who join a Platinum or Prestige Club have access to all ClubLink Member Clubs and Daily Fee Clubs* without a reciprocal fee (subject to availability.)
Members are able to play courses at Clubs outside their home region through our TravelLink program.
- What access does a Member have to Clubs outside of their Home Region?
Members enjoy access to ClubLink Clubs outside of their region through their TravelLink benefits. Basic TravelLink benefits include access to two rounds per month, per course, upon payment of 50 per cent of the prevailing guest fee and cart fee.
- What booking privileges does a Member have at their Home Club?
Members have priority access to tee times at their Home Club. The director of operations at each Club designates tee times for Home Club Members only during high demand periods. Associate Club Members and their guests have access to tee times during periods when Home Club Member demand is lower.
- Does a ClubLink membership represent equity? Can the membership be sold?
Membership with ClubLink does not represent an equity position in the company or your Home Club. Memberships cannot be sold privately or publicly. ClubLink memberships are transferable upon payment of the applicable transfer fee.
- How does transferability of a membership work?
If a membership is held Principally (personally), the membership can be transferred to an immediate family member (defined as: spouse, father, mother, brother, sister, grandfather, grandmother, son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, father-in-law, mother-in-law) of the existing ClubLink Member. The transfer fee is payable at the time of transfer. If the membership is willed, the transfer fee is waived. Under the Senior Transfer and Play program, Principal/Spousal Members who are 65 and older and have been Members for five or more years can transfer their membership within their direct family tree, while still maintaining playing privileges. A Corporate membership is owned by a bonafide, daily operating company. One designated nominee of the company is assigned to the membership.
- Is a membership transferable to another ClubLink Club?
A membership may be transferred to any other ClubLink Club, subject to the applicable upgrade and transfer fees.
- Can I change the category of my membership for health or other reasons?
Members may apply for the Inactive category upon receipt of their annual dues billing. Fees apply for either category. (adjust and add this sentence) A Member may return to activate full playing privileges only after 6 months, by paying the difference between their Club's Inactive dues and full annual dues. A reactivation fee equal to 15 per cent of the Home Club's full dues also applies.
- How is the level of a Club determined?
There are a number of factors taken into consideration when determining the level of a Club. The most significant factors include the quality of the golf and clubhouse experience in comparison to other ClubLink Golf Clubs. Secondary consideration is given to the Club's geographical location, membership demand and stability of the membership.
- Where is info posted regarding news, events, leagues and social functions?
Each ClubLink Club has its own website where information on Club news and events are posted. ClubLink Members have access to a Members Only section of their Club's site where they can view their Member account, check tournament results and course conditions, track their scores, register for events and much more. General news and information can be found on the main ClubLink website at www.clublink.com.
