How long does it take to approve my application for membership?
A new member is admitted as soon as the application form is submitted to the office, once details have been entered into the membership database an e-mail with the invoice for fees is generated and sent. Access is granted once Fees are paid in Full.
The membership applications are then approved at the monthly Board of Directors meeting. Following approval at the Board meeting, the member is emailed a notification advising their application has been formally approved.
The Club Financial Year runs from 1st October to 30th September. When a member joins outside this financial year period, the subscription component of the annual fees is pro rata monthly so that members are not paying for the months of the year prior to their joining.
How can I obtain a proposer and seconder for my application form if I do not know any members?
Not knowing any members to propose and second your application is not a barrier to joining Nudgee Golf Club.
In this situation we are able to organise a proposer and seconder ‘in house’.
Usually two of the Board of Directors will perform this function for the applicant.
Can I pay my nomination fee and subscription fees in installments?
The nomination fee (if applicable) is due in full. The subscription fees may be paid in two installments, this attracts an additional administration fee.
A further option is through a company called Pay As You Golf that enables members to pay their fees monthly via direct debit or credit, refer to www.payasyougolf.com.au for further details. Essentially, Pay As You Golf pay all your fees upfront to the Club, then debit your nominated account monthly.
What is a handicap?
A Handicap is the average score over par each time you play a competition game of golf. Handicaps are used for each competition game and allow players of all abilities to compete on an equal basis.
Men’s handicap ranges from 0 – 36 and ladies from 0 – 45. Player’s handicaps are adjusted following each competition game based on their score.
What is Golflink?
GolfLink is a national internet database managed and affiliated with Golf Australia (National Governing Body for Golf Clubs and Members).

Please supply your Golflink number on the application form for membership.
I do not have a handicap, how do I obtain one?
Members obtain a handicap by playing 3 completed rounds of 18 holes with a person who holds a current Golf Australia handicap.
