Edgbaston Golf Club
“I was encouraged to join the Academy after joining in with the club's 'Get in to golf' mini courses. Before this I had never played golf before. The Academy was the next step and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was made to feel very welcome and valued the events and occasions organised to familiarise Academy members with both the golfing and social sides to the club. It was great getting to know other Academy members during the year and I have no hesitation in recommending joining it.”
New Member 2019
The Adult Academy Membership at Edgbaston Golf Club (EGC) is aimed at those individuals with some golfing knowledge, but with no or limited experience of golf membership and who would like to be given the opportunity to improve to a sufficient level of ability and confidence to allow them access on to the course, and to be involved with the social side of the club. See the Academy Pathway overleaf for more details.
Membership runs for a maximum period of 12 months from 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020 and we hope that at the end of the year, you will be in a position to become a member of the Club.
Complete the attached Application Form and return to the Office at EGC as shown. You will be asked to book a 20 minute Assessment Lesson (at an additional cost of £10) with one of the Professionals. After confirmation, the year starts with the Academy Welcome Drinks Reception in March when you can meet the rest of the group and find out how to book in for the 12 group lessons.
Your progress will be closely monitored in order to maintain your enthusiasm and to ensure you meet the playing criteria. If you demonstrate sufficient progress part way through the Academy year, you may be encouraged to seek full-playing membership sooner. The Membership Committee will be responsible for looking after you and integrating you into the social side of the club.
There is a one off payment of £465, of which £150 goes towards the coaching sessions. At the end of your year’s Academy Membership, or possibly before the end of that year, you may be given the opportunity to join the club’s playing membership as a Provisional Member for a further 12 months without incurring any Joining Fees for this period. However, the standard annual subscriptions will apply.
