Member Benefits

  Have your Golf Society join the Golf Association of Philadelphia

  Do you have a group of 10 or more friends that play golf together but are either members of other clubs or no club at all? Form a Golf Society and join the the oldest regional or state golf association in the country. It's easy and can be done quickly through the Golf Association of Philadelphia.

  Golf Societies, or Clubs without Real Estate, are ideal for businesses small and large to promote healthy activity to their employees. Studies show that golfers exceed 10,000 steps and burn nearly 2,000 calories during a typical round, which meets the guideline for exercise recommended by most physicians.

How do I form a Golf Society?
1. Complete the Membership Application.
2. Create a set of bylaws (click for sample).
3. Send the completed form and by-laws to the Golf Office along with a $50 application fee.
