FAQ

What is a Futures Canterbury Hub?


Futures Canterbury has two hubs in Canterbury providing regular and affordable opportunities for young people and families to learn and play golf in a positive and fun environment. When you join a Futures Canterbury Hub, you get access to play at a collective of golf clubs with a growing community of young people and families along with regular learn and play sessions and events.




Who can join a Futures Canterbury Hub?


Hub membership is open to anyone under 19 years of age. We also have a membership for parents/guardians of junior members of a hub which provides them the opportunity to play golf with their children at the participating clubs in a hub. This membership is transferable between parents allowing one parent at any time to play with their child/children. If both parents would like to play with their child/children at the same time, two parent/guardian memberships would be required. Visit our Membership Options page for more information.




When can hub members play at the participating clubs?


Being a member of the hub gives you access to play at all of the participating clubs in your local hub at off-peak times outside of weekly club competitions.

What does membership include?


As well as access to play at the participating clubs in a hub, junior members will also receive an introductory branded apparel pack, an official NZ Golf membership number and handicap, subsidised learn & play sessions and coaching programmes, and events, and the opportunity to play junior interclub for a nominated club within a hub. The parent/guardian membership includes off-peak playing rights at the participtating hub courses when playing with a young person who is a current junior member of the North-East or Selwyn Hub. Please note the parent/guardian membership does not include an NZ Golf membership number. As junior and parent members of Futures Canterbury, no green fee is payable at the participating courses in your local hub.




Can parents or guardians of junior members join the hub?


Yes, we offer a membership for parents/guardians of current junior members of a hub. The membership gives you the opportunity to play golf with your child/children at any of the participating clubs in a hub. The annual membership fee is $130. To encourage family participation, this membership is transferable between parents allowing one parent at any time to play with their child/children. If you would both like to play with your child/children at the same time, two parent/guardian memberships would be required. For parent members looking to get more involved in club golf, we offer a complimentary parent/guardian membership for those who join one of the participating clubs as a full playing member*. This offer also applies to parents who are current full playing members of a participating club when your son or daughter joins a Futures Canterbury Hub.
