FAQs for Clubs
Unlike the previous Scottish Golf Card, there is no set discount of 50% – it is up to each club to decide what their offer is. It could be a discount of 10%, 25%, 50%, members’ guests rate, a complimentary buggy, a free cup of coffee, a £5 off a meal voucher, a deal with a local hotel for overnight accommodation…it is entirely up to you!
We recommend you consider which offer best suits the needs of your Club, based on utilisation of your tee-times and what the best promotion might be to attract fellow members. Ideally, this would be the best offer in your portfolio, as our aim is to maximise the value of membership. For example, the offer could be similar to any current reciprocal arrangements with local clubs
The offers will then be featured on the Scottish Golf website and we will showcase various offers through our membership communication, including website pages and e-bulletins. If you do not know your Club’s log-in details, please contact Audrey Rees, Marketing Coordinator, on 01334 466477.
Our communication will help promote your own club’s Special Offers, with a number of clubs selected at random each month for inclusion in our Golfers e-bulletin, offering a fantastic marketing opportunity for your club.
There will be an approximate lead time of 14 days for the receipt of a new member’s card, but there will no charge to the club or the member for their first card.

Thank you for your support!
The Scottish Golf Membership Card programme has arisen through feedback from golf clubs and golfers, asking the governing bodies to add value to being a member of a golf club. We hope that the new Card will support membership retention and recruitment at your club and we will be working hard to continually develop the Card and add more golf-related benefits for your members. We thank you for your support in marketing the Card to your own membership.
Should you have any questions in relation to the Scottish Golf Membership Card, please contact a member of the Scottish Golf Team on 01334 466477. If your enquiry relates specifically to the CDH, please ask for Calum Grant or Adam Phillips.
