Unlike some clubs, where the only benefit of joining is a shiny piece of plastic to flash at parties, becoming a member at The Players Golf Club comes with a list of membership advantages longer than a pay-day grocery list. You do also get a shiny card; better than just displaying your name, it shows that you have an official handicap, controlled by the SAGA handicapping system, and are a member of a unique club. It’s also your key-card to all the courses and ensures that you’re able to compete in all the corporate golf days and competitions.
The PGC is dedicated to introducing new golfers into the market and giving all the benefits they need to feel like part of the society. Not only do members get the handicap card and complimentary bragging rights, they also pay affiliated green-fees at most South African golf-courses, which makes playing a few rounds at your favourite course a darn sight cheaper.
As a mahala gift to say thank you for contributing to the society of Green-jacket hopefuls, you’ll also receive two lessons from a PGA professional, to help you smooth out your stroke and make sure you get the most out of your time on the fairway. You can also contact PGC with any golf-related queries you have and they will assist you in every way they can – sort of like a Fairy-godmother of golf.
