Membership

Royal Wellington enjoys two marvelous courses, a beautiful club house and a strong and active membership. While the club holds its traditional values dearly, it is a proudly progressive club and one that encourages its members to have fun. New members are made to feel welcome and to join in both the competitive and social sides of the club.

Now is a great time to join us at Royal Wellington.

‘If you are interested in becoming a New Zealand based member, please fill in the membership application below. It helps if you know a current member, but if that is not the case, the club can assist by introducing you to member mentors, who can guide you through the process . Once your application is accepted, it is reviewed and ratified.

The whole process does not take long, and while an application is being processed the prospective member is able to use all the facilities including playing golf with a member. Once that is completed payment of annual subscription is required, which is prorated from the time of joining. There are payment options available including Monthly, Quarterly or six-monthly installments.

Family Package

The Club wants to encourage families and young people to use the Club’s facilities and to become Club members. With this in mind the Club has developed a Family Package.

If both parents or guardians are members whose subscriptions are paid up to date and they are either both Full Playing or one is a Full Playing member and one is a Terrace member, then any of the children of whom they are parents or guardians and who are 19 years of age and younger at the start of the Club’s financial year (1st March) are eligible for Junior membership of the Club at no additional cost.

Once such a child reaches the age of 20, he or she would move to the Full Playing 20-25yr category at the start of the next financial year of the Club at the subscription rate charged at that time. If both parents or guardians meet the eligibility criteria mentioned above, or you would like to upgrade your membership category to take advantage of this package, please contact Kim Kerr at the office to register your relevant children for Junior membership.

This only applies to children permanently residing in the family home, who are in our two youngest age categories of Junior Member of J2 (ages 11 through 19) and J3 (ages 10 and younger). The package does not apply to grandchildren.

Junior Membership Under 19 Years

This category particularly suits our members with young families who use the facilities such as the, BBQ swimming pool, tennis courts, house and practice areas and saves the parents the inconvenience of paying guest fees for their children while here. Should an entrance fee be introduced in the future any membership fees that have been paid will be credited against that prevailing entrance fee.
