Here at the Southport Golf Complex we pride ourselves on offering excellent value for money. Please feel free to discuss your specific requirements with us. Whether you are looking to play regularly or from time to time, the Southport Golf Academy will have a package to suit you.
We have a thriving membership here at Southport Golf Academy Golf Club who all enjoy the benefits of a manageable layout, relaxed atmosphere and golf course that is rarely affected by poor weather due to excellent drainage.
At Southport Golf Academy we offer a contract to play the course plus an optional ‘membership’ of the affiliated SGA Golf Club which is based here. Contracts, dependent on category, offer unlimited use of the course and practice areas; additional membership of the Golf Club can be taken if you require an official WHS (World Handicap System) handicap or wish to play in competitions (note you may not become a member of the SGA Golf Club without an existing playing contract with Southport Golf Academy).
Contracts to play run from the month of joining for the following twelve months, whereas membership of the SGA Golf Club is an annual fee due each January.
For clarity the contract to play is in effect a season ticket, allowing unlimited play with the terms, subject to tee availability which must be booked in advance. It is termed Membership to keep us aligned with golf terminology, but has NO direct affiliation to the Sports Governing Body, England Golf which is responsible for administering the WHS. SGA Golf Club is managed by its members, the executive closely aligned with the organisation, but with only the remit to agree and manage official competition, and any social functions.

Contract Holders and SGA Club Members are required to understand that as the course is part of an Academy – playing standards of guests can be compromised from time to time and patience and understanding is required. Everyone has (had) to start somewhere – SGA do try to provide assistance to beginners and supervise the course at key times with this in mind.
An alternative to a Contract and Club Membership is to buy a 20 x 9 hole card for £160 (Does not qualify for competitions or insurance but can be used 7 days a week), saving 20% on 9 hole rates.
The SGA Golf Club
Our SGA Membership includes a full calendar of competitions and social events. Hand in 3 cards for a handicap and you’re away! If competition is not for you, then there is no pressure to take part, however, to retain a WHS Handicap you must play in three qualifying competitions.
VAT – Please note when comparing our Membership and Contract Fees with other courses we are at a disadvantage because we are privately owned and therefore obliged to charge and pay VAT to HMCR. Members owned Golf Clubs are exempt for this liability.
