Membership FAQs

1. What membership options are available for the 2021 golf season?

Clovelly is introducing a new membership structure for 2021.  The change is designed to simplify operations, adapt to current market conditions, and appeal to a wide range of golfers.   

CATEGORY    PRICE
 Junior (18 years & under) $590
 Intermediate (19-29 years) $1590
 Black Duck $1590
The Osprey $2590
Corporate $2590
 FLEX $425 

 Notes: Prices subject to HST.  Quantities are limited. Age cut-off is Dec 31.

2. Do you limit or cap the number of memberships you sell in each category? If so, why?

Yes, the number of memberships available in each category is limited.  Some of the reasons:

  • The facilities have a limited number of member lockers and stalls for club storage.
  • Clovelly is a hybrid golf facility, equally dependent on member and green fee revenue. Limits are needed to support green fees sales and manage a competitive membership offering. 
  • Young golfers are vital for our future, but we can only support a limited number of heavily reduced member rates (many Intermediates are now paying less than $8 per round).

3. Will members receive any discounts in 2021?

Yes, membership include several discounts.  Specifically:

Family:
Receive 15% off Intermediate, Black Duck and The Osprey member dues if spouse, partner, child, or grandchild paid full fees; 25% off Junior membership if parent or grandparent paid full fees.  Applied on membership of equal or lesser value.

Restaurant:
Members pay happy hour bar prices during club tournaments & socials and reduced prices on entrée during select member nights.

Green Fees:
Members can request 10% off green fees for guests they book in their foursome. Available at check-in only.  Must be requested by member.

Golf Shop:
Members will receive up to 25% off during exclusive member promotions.


4. How many days are advance booking privileges? Do all members have the same privileges?

All members receive the same first access to prime tee times.  Currently members book five days ahead; daily fee golfers can book three. These shorter time frames helped our operations team this year and kept us in position to pivot quickly.  The policy will be re-evaluated at the start of the 2021 season and updated to reflect current health protocols, pace policies and net rate targets.

5. What are extended playing privileges?

Members can book and play at no charge up to an hour after the last posted tee time. No pass or green fee required.  Privileges extend to members only.  Club and cart rentals are not available.  All golfers must finish at sunset and be off the golf course before dark (as per our closing protocols). 

6. Are club storage and locker service included in my membership?

Club storage and locker room services are included in all Adult Memberships – Black Duck, The Osprey, Corporate and FLEX. 

Intermediate and Junior members can opt to purchase these services at the start of the season: Club storage & cleaning - $100; Locker room services -$75. Concierge will send an email when the items are available for purchase online. 

Club Storage Policy

Clovelly is pleased to offer club storage and cleaning for all members – please follow these guidelines:

  • Keep your member bag tag visible; help our team keep your equipment prepared.
  • Do not leave food, drink or valuables (including Rangefinders) in club storage.   
  • Golf bags must be removed at the end of the season.  Subject to a monthly charge of $25 +hst. 
  • Clovelly is not be responsible for theft or damage to clubs or items in storage.

Locker Service Policy

Members will be assigned a locker number and a key at the beginning of the golf season

  • Replacement keys can be provided for $20.
  • Do not leave food, drink or valuables in your locker.   
  • Clovelly reserves the right to access lockers if there is a security risk or environmental concern. 
  • Belongings must be removed at the end of the season. Lockers are sanitized yearly.  Members who fail to remove belongings will be subject to a monthly charge of $25 + hst.
  • Clovelly is not responsible for theft or damage to possessions left in a member’s locker.

7. If club storage and locker services are not offered due of COVID will we be given a refund?

We will not be issuing refunds for club storage or locker room service if the back shop and locker rooms remain closed due to Covid-19.  The club does save money if these services are not provided, however the savings only partially cover lost revenue and costs incurred with Covid-19 restrictions.     

8. Is cart storage available?  What does it cost this year?

Cart storage is available on a first come first serve basis for The Osprey members at no extra charge.

  • Carts must be removed at the end of the golf season. Subject to a monthly charge of $25 +hst. 
  • Clovelly is not responsible for theft or damage to golf carts in storage.

9. Are range balls available every day, or only on days that you play?

Members can redeem one complimentary range bucket for personal use daily. A tee time is not required.  Practice balls are complimentary for members only and may not be removed from the practice area.  Range slips are valid for one hour after issue. Additional baskets are $10 each.

10. Will there be a fee to play in club tournaments?

Yes.  A small fee is charged to participants to offset some of the direct costs associated with the event (trophies, prizes etc).   Our competitive events offer a wonderful opportunity to test our skills and socialize, but less than a quarter of our members participate.  The club fully supports these member events, but it is appropriate for the competitors to cover some of the incremental costs.

11. Can a Black Duck member play in a club tournament on The Osprey?

Yes, if there is space available and if they pay the applicable green fee.

12. Will member driven tournaments like The Chidley be welcome and given advanced booking?

Clovelly supported every event request put forth by members this past year – including The Chidley, Interclub & Ryder Cup – and is happy to continue the practice, as long as measures to manage pace of play are agreed in advance.  That said, any member event with more than 20 people (four or more tee times) must be approved by Concierge at least one week in advance, to ensure adequate staffing.

13. Will we get a Golf Canada membership with a Clovelly membership?

Yes.  Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in April to have your Golf Canada membership activated for 2021.

14. How can I renew my membership?  Can I purchase a different membership?

Current members can renew for next season in the online store, starting noon Friday, Oct 23rd and are guaranteed a 2021 membership until 5pm Sunday November 1st.

The waitlist will be processed before membership opens to the public on November 5th

Our payment plan is available online for Junior and Intermediate memberships purchased in October.  Terms: 50% down and six equal payments on the first of each month until April 1st 2021.

19. What is your membership refund policy?

Membership Refund Policy

A refund is provided if a member is unable to play for health reasons or is required to move beyond the Avalon peninsula for work reasons. A refund is equal to the total amount paid for the membership (including hst), less the greater of:

  • The dollar value (including hst) of the rounds played to date, as per the Clovelly POS system – ie the total green fees (including hst) that would have been charged at the time of play, or
  • The prorated monthly value of the membership (including hst) at the time of the refund request, assuming the membership is prorated over six months (May – October) and the month at the time of request is included in the calculation.

Notes:

  • Refunds are not available after August 1
  • If a membership is refunded for health reasons, the member will be guaranteed a space in the same member category in the following year when the memberships sale opens in the fall
  • A refund cannot be transferred to another person to secure a membership if the membership category is full.

20. What are the posted green fee rates for next season? What is the power cart price for 2021?

Our rate card – including green fees and rental rates – is posted when we open in the spring. 

21. Will there be an accessibility cart package in 2021?

We do not have an accessibility cart “package” however our accessibility cart policy (see below) includes a discounted rate for golfers riding alone.
