Basic Requirements to Join

There are 5 membership criteria:

  1. Age: You must be at least 57 years old to apply and over 60 years old to join as a Regular Member.
  2. Attendance: You must be able to golf at least 12 games per season (at Burnaby Mountain) when invited to join as a Prospective New Member, possibly within 3 – 5 years from date of your waitlist application. You may play as a Prospective New Member at age 59.
  3. Handicap Index: To be placed on the Waitlist you must submit 3 recent gross scores and identify the courses, dates played and the tees from which you played.  Once you have been accepted to the Waitlist you will be given an ID and password to access our online Club Portal. You can then use the Portal to maintain a current handicap index. You must record all games played elsewhere; at least 5 scores each year from games played at any regulation size golf course. Failure to enter 5 scores annually will result in removal from the Waitlist. You must have an established, current handicap index before being invited to join as a Prospective New Member. 
  4. Max Handicap Index: You must be able to play to a maximum handicap index of 35, by Golf Canada Rules of Golf.
  5. Pace of Play: You must demonstrate a good pace of play (less than 4½ hours) by playing at least one game with the club while on the Waitlist. You can play either an Away Game or one of the Waitlist Invitationals. Pace of play is extremely important in our club.

3 Steps to Membership

Waitlist: Our Waitlist is currently not accepting applications. However, when applications are being accepted, the following process is used.

Once your application is received, and you have paid your $50 application fee and submitted 3 scores from full-size golf courses, you will be placed on the Waitlist if space allows. As time passes your position on t e Waitlist will increase. When you occupy a position in the top 60, you will be given signin privileges for our Club Portal. The $50 one-time, non-refundable application fee will be used to pay for your use of the Club Portal. You cannot sign up for our weekly games on Wednesday but you can use the Portal to sign up for any or all of our 6 Away Games and 2 Waitlist Invitationals. You can also drop in on Wednesday mornings at Burnaby Mountain and play if space is available. These games provide an opportunity to meet club members.

If you occupy a position above #60 you are ineligible to play in any games.

While on the Waitlist you are required to play at least one game with a representative of the club to validate your Pace of Play indicating that you are capable of playing a round of golf within 4 hours and 30 minutes. You will be required to contact the Club Captain to arrange your Pace of Play game. 

You must record all games played elsewhere; at least 5 scores each year at any regulation size golf course. Failure to enter 5 scores annually will result in removal from the Waitlist.

There is no annual fee for Waitlist applicants.

Prospective New Member (PNM): Golfers from the top of the Waitlist, who have met all the criteria, are invited to become PNMs each year assuming they have a current handicap index less than 35 and have played at least one round of golf with the club to fulfill their Pace-of-Play requirement. If you do not accept the invitation your application for membership will be cancelled. If you wish to re-apply you must submit a new application to the Waitlist. If successful, your name will be placed at the bottom of the Waitlist. PNMs pay an annual fee and must commit to playing at least 12 games and meet all of the membership obligations to be eligible for full membership when space allows. PNMs may sign-up for Wednesday games 1 week prior, on Wednesday evening at 6pm. PNMs can compete for weekly prizes (but not for major tournament prizes).

Regular Member (RM): RMs are required to play a minimum of 12 games per year, pay their annual dues plus a $35 initiation fee in their first year. When you are offered regular membership you must accept, and commit to playing regularly, or resign. RMs may sign up after 6pm Saturday, a week and a half prior to our Wednesday games. They are entitled to all club privileges which include weekly prizes, tournament competitions and attendance at our Annual General Meeting and Spring Luncheon.
