An in-depth look at GolfClubSubs.

Amid rising costs of living and financial pressures, golf clubs face the task of ensuring member affordability without compromising on their cash inflow. GolfClubSubs presents a software solution tailored to simplify this membership fee management challenge.

Monthly instalments: A necessary offering

Paying membership fees in monthly instalments offers members relief from their immediate financial constraints, reducing stress and enhancing their financial planning. For the club, this fosters engagement and increases member retention while providing the club with a more consistent monthly cash flow.

Direct Debit: A win-win

By leveraging a software based direct debit system via GolfClubSubs, clubs can sidestep numerous traditional challenges: the time-consuming process of manual invoicing and bank reconciliations, the rigours of credit control and the uncertainty tied to fluctuating interest rates can all be avoided.
Membership payment options

Golf clubs can choose between three systems with GolfClubSubs:

Smart Credit: A credit agreement between the club and the member where interest can be levied per FCA’s ‘limited permission’ or using the relevant FCA exemptions*. GolfClubSubs onboarding team offers full support through the setup process.

Smart Direct Debit: A prepaid membership model without creating a credit agreement with the member, saving on admin time.

Smart Membership: Collect cash, card and instalment payments while also managing the full renewal process automatically and online.

“Pennard Golf Club switched to GolfClubSubs.com in March 2019 to manage members’ direct debit payments. The set-up process was simple and well managed. We are extremely pleased with how effective the system is,” said Rhys Morgan, club manager, Pennard Golf Club.
