Membership of iGolf QLD

We have established iGolf QLD and this Website to provide services to casual golfers in Queensland. In order to obtain access to the full range of services available, you are required to register as a member of iGolf QLD. This will provide you access to a wide range of benefits, including a Golf Australia Handicap and access to special events and promotions. This membership is not transferable.

How to become a member

To become a member of iGolf QLD you must complete the online registration form on this Website and pay the yearly membership fee as set out on this Website. The membership fee is stated in Australian dollars and includes Australian GST (where applicable).

Passwords

During the registration process, you will be asked to provide a password, you will also be allocated a membership number which will be entered along with your password for future log ins. Please ensure that you keep your password confidential. We will assume that any use of this Website and any service in connection with iGolf QLD made using your membership number and password is you, and you will be responsible for any such use unless you have notified us prior to such use in accordance with the paragraph below.

You must notify us as soon as you become aware of any improper use or disclosure of your username and password.

Membership Requirements

To become a member of iGolf QLD you must be at least 18 years of age. By completing the registration process, you warrant to us that you are at least 18 years of age. You acknowledge that if you are an overseas resident you may become a member of iGolf QLD, however, you may not be able to receive some of the benefits available to iGolf QLD members who are Australian residents.

You must not provide us with inaccurate or incomplete information during the registration process or at any other time. All memberships must be registered with a current and valid email address that you access, and have permission to access, regularly. At any stage we may require you to validate your email address if we suspect that an invalid email address or an email address which you do not have permission to use is registered to your membership.

You must not have been a financial member of an affiliated Golf Club within the previous two (2) years at the time you register to become a member of iGolf QLD.

iGolf QLD is the “Home Club” for all iGolf QLD Members.  iGolf QLD will be responsible for the Home Club section of the Australian Handicap System viewable at www.golfaustralia.org.au.

Payment of the membership fee must be made online at the time of registration by credit or debit card and must be renewed each year. The credit and debit cards that are accepted from time to time will be described on this Website. A surcharge may apply for the use of certain credit or debit cards and where this is the case this will also be described on this Website.

At any stage we may ask you to provide photo ID where necessary to ensure that your identity matches the registration identity. A record and/or copy of this photo ID may be retained by us to minimise the risk of fraudulent credit card usage and for verification purposes with your credit card provider in the event of a dispute.

Period of Membership

Membership continues for a period of 12 months from the date of your registration. Prior to the expiry of this period, we will notify you that your membership is due for renewal. If you wish to renew your membership, you will be required to pay the then current yearly membership fee.

If you do not pay your membership renewal fees by the required date, your membership will expire and your Golf Link number and Golf Australia handicap will be made inactive.

Welcome Pack

Once you have received confirmation from us that your membership to iGolf QLD has been accepted, we will send an iGolf QLD welcome pack to the address specified by you during the registration process. Please note that it will usually take up to 10 business days before you receive the welcome pack. In some cases due to unforeseen circumstances this timeframe may be longer. Each member is entitled to one Welcome Pack only upon new or renewed registration to the program.

The welcome pack will include your iGolf QLD membership card.

Changes and/or Cancellations

If you wish to change or update any details of your membership, you must contact iGolf QLD - click here or contact details or use the functionality included in this Website.

Please carefully consider your decision to register as a member of iGolf QLD as we do not normally allow refunds of the membership fee.

In extenuating circumstances, you may request a refund, however you must do so within five days of registering as a member and prior to your receipt of the welcome pack. If we do permit a refund of the membership fee, a transaction fee of $10 will be deducted from the total refund amount. Any refund will only be made back to the same credit or debit card which was used to make the initial payment of the membership fee.

You may also request a pro-rata refund of your membership fees if we vary the terms and conditions of your membership and such variation results in a significant adverse impact on your ability to enjoy the full benefits of iGolf QLD.

Our Cancellation and Alteration of Benefits

We may cancel your membership at our sole and complete discretion if we suspect that you are acting fraudulently (such as using a credit card without proper authorisation) or in breach of either these terms and conditions (such as knowingly not declaring your previous two year Golf membership history) or any other relevant laws or regulations. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate iGolf QLD at any time by providing not less than 30 days notice to you. We expressly reserve the right to terminate or alter (materially or otherwise) any benefits associated with iGolf QLD or any aspect of the operation of iGolf QLD without notice to members.
