Q. Do I need to purchase a share to join? 
A: We offer various membership categories. If you are under the age of 31, you are able to join Highlands without purchasing a share. If you are 31 or older, you will need to either purchase a share or play as an associate member. There are a limited number of associate memberships available, and associate members do pay a small premium relative to regular shareholder dues. 


Q. How much does it cost to join as a shareholder?
A:  The current joining fee is $3,000 + GST for the share and transfer fee. This can be paid over two years. The shareholder is then responsible for regular shareholder membership dues and other shareholder commitments.

Q: What are details of the Shareholder Flex Pass model?
A: This is a new Shareholder category that has been added, giving added flexibility to the Shareholder. The Shareholder has the option of receiving 45 rounds for the year, rather than the traditional unlimited golf model. These passes can be used for the Shareholders rounds as well as for any guest rounds. The passes are not transferable and expire at the end of the year. The Shareholder Flex Pass member has all of the same fees, requirements and booking privileges as a regular Shareholder.

Q: What is the Golf Course Improvement Fee?
A: Under the guidance of golf course architect, Ted Locke, the Club undertook a $2.1 million project, redoing the golf course irrigation system as well as renovations to 12 golf holes. The irrigation system went from 250 irrigation heads to now being over 650 irrigation heads. A number of tee boxes were added, bunkers were redone and/or moved and some cart paths were moved and/or redone. This work was completed between 2014-2016 and is being financed through a $50/month fee to shareholders and a $25/month fee to spouses (called Golf Course Improvement Fee).
