Current members may become Associate (non-playing) members of the association at any time, paying a reduced fee.
It is suggested that any playing member who may need to take some time out of golf, eg. medical reasons, becomes an associate member to hold their place in the association, otherwise they would need to fulfil the criteria above, to re-join, in the event of any break in the period of membership.
NOTE to delegates and members If any member is a member of 2 clubs, in separate counties, they must choose at the start of the season which association they intend to represent for matches.
This should be indicated on the new starter/renewal form each year in the field “Available for Matches” It is expected that if the field is ticked on the Staffordshire form that the individual will not compete in matches for any other county, in that season. However, these members are eligible to compete in the Vets competitions, even if they opt to play their matches for their other county.
