Course Membership Options

Here at the Southport Golf Complex we pride ourselves on offering excellent value for money. Please feel free to discuss your specific requirements with us. Whether you are looking to play regularly or from time to time, the Southport Golf Academy will have a package to suit you.

We have a thriving membership here at Southport Golf Academy Golf Club who all enjoy the benefits of a manageable layout, relaxed atmosphere and golf course that is rarely affected by poor weather due to excellent drainage. There are two stages to play here - first we offer contracts to play and those that take up contracts are then able to join the Golf Club. There is now an unlimited number of 5 day and 7 day contracts available for men and women of all ages and abilities including first time payers plus our Special Weekend Membership. Contract holders who then wish to join the SGA Golf Club can apply to do so - again membership is freely available at the present time following the Clubs formation in January 2014. Membership of the Golf Club allows optional play in a range of qualifying Competitions - and these lead to formal CONGU Handicaps registered centrally with the governing body - England Golf. 

2017 - Contracts to Play run from the month of joining for the following twelve months - despite the big investment in the course we have retained our Contract fees with little adjustment for five years now. We also have the addition of a Weekend Membership that provides the full rights as the other types but with play only possible at weekends. This is also on an annual basis and we hope provide players who cant get out during weekdays can enjoy the benefits of official handicaps and competition. There has been a modest rise to Contracts fees from April 2017


2017 Golf Club Membership is annual from 1st january 2017 with a one off joining fee which remains for the third year at £20 - this fee is due each January regradless of whatever point members take out a contract during the year and entitles entry into Competitions on a monthly basis, as well as our majors and our Summer and Winter Leagues. Monthly Medals and Majors qualify for our Order of Merit.

2017 Membership will also allow play in matches against other clubs on a freindly or compeition basis in the future. 

Fees - and NOW 3,6 or 12 month payment options - all include 20% VAT

  • 7 Day Contract £419 (This enables members to play 365 days per year with no restrictions. All contract holders are personally insured whilst playing on the SGA course as part of their contract for damage to them-selves or to others)
  • 7 Day Seniors Contract (Male or Female)£389 (As above for over 60's)

  • Junior Contract (6-16 years old) £135 to include 16 supervised Club nights, (All Junior contract holders must be members of the SGA Golf Club and this enttiles them to a CONGU Junior Handicap. Contract also includes personal insurance. Please see Junior Membership page for full details.
  • SGA reserve the right to test playing ability for new contract holders and SGA Golf Club Members but stress that our facilities are primarily there to introduce people to the game whatever their age and ability.
  • Contract Holders and SGA Club Members are required to understand that as the course is part of an Academy - playing standards of guests can be compromised from time to time and patience and understanding is required. Everyone has (had) to start somewhere - SGA do try to provide assistance to beginners and supervise the course at key times with this in mind.


An alternative to a Contract and Club Membership is to buy a 20 x 9 hole card for £140  (Does not qualify for competitions or insurance but can be used 7 days a week) a saving of nearly 15% on weekday nine hole rates and £2.00 per nine holes at weekends!

Our SGA Membership includes a full calendar of competitions and social events. Hand in 3 cards for a handicap and you're away! If competition is not for you, then there is no pressure to take part however to retain a CONGU Handicap you must play in three qualifying competitions.

With regular away days organised by our members, you will get plenty of opportunity to play on 18 hole golf courses at discount prices. See our fixture list for dates and venues.


VAT - please note when comparing our Membership and Contract Fees with other courses we are at a disadvantage because we are privately owned and therefore obliged to charge and pay VAT to HMCR. Members owned Golf Clubs are exempt for this liability. All part of a Sport England initiative to encourage sport playing - which fails to recognise the work we do in introduction of facilities suited to beginners!
