Become a Member
Just as the game of golf fosters separate but equal opportunities for gender, so does Durand Eastman Golf Club offer membership for men of all ages. DEGC is not alone with this orientation with the likes of the PGA, LPGA, RDGA, WRDGA and is associated with the Women's Durand Eastman Golf Club (WDEGC). It is DEGC's commitment to promote the game of golf and it's ability to accommodate all parties interested in participating that is of importance. All information regarding membership for women will be forwarded to the WDEGC. As such, everyone is welcome to fill out the application for membership. The following information is for DEGC membership: All new members must be sponsored by a member in good standing. A member can only sponsor one new member each year. If an applicant does not have a sponsor, we will make every effort to provide a sponsor for him. The purpose of a sponsor is to introduce a new member to the Club and its activities. Junior members may also be sponsored.
· Adult age 18+: Full membership with payment of the initiation plus regular annual fees.
· Junior: Pee-Wee (ages: 9-11), Sub-junior (ages: 12-14) and Junior (ages: 15-17)
The purpose of the junior membership status is to encourage youth to learn and enjoy golf, to establish a handicap, to play fairly with good sportsmanship, and to allow for the greater companionship with related older members.
