Golf is expensive and time-consuming, yet many people seek memberships to enjoy all benefits of being full members. Remote memberships make it pay off. Remote Membership: Making Golf Club Membership Fees Affordable for Everyone Golf is usually associated with money, spare time, and the typical country club feeling. Looking back at the history of the sport, these associations seem legit as golf used to be the sport of the rich gentlemen – plaid pants and driver´s hat included. Nowadays, more and more young people discover the joy of golfing: Fresh air together with physical action that combines fitness, concentration, and stamina seem like a great pastime. Unfortunately, golf clubs have not yet adjusted their membership fees to the bigger target group. Ongolf.de offers a new and affordable golf experience for everyone. A Membership at your Local Golf Course If you´d like to play golf, the most convenient possibility is to visit your local golf course and to sign up for a membership there. That way, you can hit the greens as often as you like with the green fee being included in your monthly or yearly membership fees. Memberships are usually really expensive, though, and many people cannot afford them. Others may be in the position to pay for it but refuse to invest a high amount of money if they won´t be able to play often: the membership fees won´t pay off that way. The majority of people associate golf memberships with being an active part of the club and feel pressured to spend time with the people there even though they might prefer to visit other golf courses seeking new challenges. Being a member of the local golf course is just not for everyone. Remote Membership as an Alternative The possibility of signing up for a remote membership offers a whole new range of opportunities to golfers. But what exactly does remote mean and how can players benefit from such a membership? How does Remote Membership Work? So far, there have been guest memberships or associate memberships, which reduced the green fee at a golf course somewhere in the world without really giving the member any real advantage. The Onegolf remote membership however makes the remote member a full part of a golf club at a reasonable distance. Advantages of the Remote Membership Being a remote member, you get to enjoy all the advantages of a regular member. Seeing that the intermediary picks country clubs, which are within a radius of a few hundred kilometers, members usually can hit the greens there a couple of times a year. Whenever you visit your golf course, you are treated like any other member. That means you don´t need to pre-register before your visit, you don´t need to pay the green fee and you can use any facilities that the club offers to its members for the regular fees or even for free. On top of that, you receive a full golf license, which enables you to pay the regular green fee to play at any registered golf course around the globe. That kind of deal is a win-win situation for both the golf clubs and the golfer, as the club generates capital through member fees, even though they are a lot lower than the regular ones. On the other hand, the player benefits from a full membership at a low price, which amortizes a lot easier than one at the local golf course. Who Should Consider a Remote Membership? Golf is a hobby for people, who have a considerable amount of free time. A regular golf membership at local clubs is usually high-priced and amortizes only if the member takes advantage of his or her membership as often as possible by visiting the driving range and by playing 9 or 18 holes. A lot of people wish for an affordable golfing experience, though, and can only take time to hit the greens every few weeks – an expensive membership seems out of proportion in that case, but so does having to pay the green fee every single time you´d like to play golf – a remote membership is a great option.
