Junior Golf – Membership

RAGC is pleased to offer a range of exciting, attractive and accessible junior membership options.

We recognise the importance of junior golf in not only shaping the players of the future but also providing sporting opportunities for young people to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle from a young age.

Our Junior Membership categories (please find current costs at the back of this brochure) are structured to support a progressive and inclusive environment, encouraging players to develop and improve their game as well as mix and socialise with a range of other members. Key to the success of our program is the social interaction and club environment of our junior development pathway.

“Our aim is to not only nurture and produce good golfers but also to create friendship groups and lifelong friends through this great game”

Entrance fees

We view golf as the ultimate ‘game for life’. As such, we aim to provide a membership structure that encourages longer-term club members and creates and nurtures a true club environment.

We provide an option for Junior Members to pay a once-off reduced entrance fee, with no further joining fee when progressing to full membership (the adult full entrance fee at RAGC is currently $8800 inc GST)*. This option represents significant savings and aims to reduce barriers to full membership for young golfers.
