Scottish Golf Affiliation Fee increase - New!

scottish golf smallAt an Extraordinary General Meeting in Stirling, delegates voted in favour of an increase in the individual affiliation fee from £11.25 to £14.50 with effect from 1st January.  This fee is collected by Clubs and passed to Scottish Golf once a year.   As you will know from your subscription invoices we itemise this fee separately from your membership fee for Minto Golf Club.    You may remember that there was an attempt to instigate this increase earlier in the year when it was voted down.  It soon became clear that there would be another attempt to seek a vote on the subject.  The vote last night resulted in a 60.2% to 39.8% win for those who favoured the increase. 

On both occasions, Minto Golf Club submitted a proxy No vote.

There are more details of the outcome, as well as background information on the proposal on the Scottish Golf website which can be accessed by clicking here

In addition to the Scottish Golf Fee, members also  pay a £2 affiliation fee the the Border Golfers' Association (BGA), hence this years total affiliation fee was £13.25.  This will rise to a total of £16.50 subject to no change in BGA fees.  We are not aware of any proposals to change the BGA fee.
