Lottery application for the Associate Waiting List and Intermediate categories is now CLOSED FOR THE YEAR
The process will not open again until February 1st of 2024.
Our current waiting list operates at a capacity of 125 Associate Waiting List members and each year we will only fill "up to" this number. Through attrition and renewal processes each year we determine the number of vacancies in our voting membership and offer these spots in order to those on the top of the existing waiting list. This invitation will lower the Associate Waiting List back down to a lesser number which will allow for more people to be added onto the bottom of the list through the lottery process explained below.
PLEASE NOTE: If you had an Expression of Interest Form or submitted an application in 2023 YOU WILL NEED TO FORMALLY APPLY AGAIN .
Our application process for the lottery will only run between February 1st and February 28th of each year with the lottery being conducted at a determined date set in the third week of March.

SUMMARY OF THE PROGRAM ONCE YOU ARE ON THE ASSOCIATE WAITING LIST
APPLICABLE FEES ONCE YOU ARE DRAWN ONTO THE ASSOCIATE WAITING LIST
Each year a member is on the Associate Waiting List they must pay the Annual Dues, Golf Canada Fee, Hole In One Insurance and MHA. The Entrance Fee Deposit is a one time only fee payable at the time a member is added to the list.
Currently it is estimated that the wait time to be invited into voting membership is approx. 5 years. This is only an estimation as we have no exact method of forecasting our attrition on an annual basis.
ENTRANCE FEE FOR VOTING MEMBERSHIP
Our Entrance Fee is a non - equity position and is non transferable. This one time fee is payable at the time a member is invited into voting membership. Upon the invitation the balance of the Entrance Fee (Entrance Fee at the time of invitation minus Deposit Paid upon joining the Associate Waiting List) can be paid out in full or a member may opt to be enrolled in our 5 year payment plan.
Our Entrance Fee for 2023 is set at $13,000 for the first member and $8580 for a spouse (plus gst). The Entrance Fee is subject to market and inflationary increases on an annual basis.
In the event you have any questions or would like some further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

The application process for the lottery for 2023 is now closed for the remainder of the year and will not be re-opened until February of 2024.
FULFILLMENT OF AVAILABLE SPOTS
In 2024 we will continue with the reduced replacement in an effort to reduce the category over time by approximately 20 members from where we sit today. The attrition of existing members will be filled at a 20% fill rate so for every 5 members that leave we will bring in 1 member in their place.
