Pro-Rata Billing System Explained

Dear Member

 

This letter is in response to your query about our new pro-rata billing system.

We are currently moving our members into an annual billing cycle, where you will be billed from 1 January to 31 December.

 

In order to do this we are offering 2 options for new and renewing members.

 

OPTION 1: You can renew or sign up until the end of this year OR

 

OPTION 2: You can renew or sign up until the end of next year.

 

The rates offered are calculated based on the fees we have to pay to the relevant golfing bodies. We pay fees in November for membership in arrears. That means, if you signed up today for the rest of the year, we still have to pay ALL your fees for this full year. The same applies for anybody renewing.

 

We have tried to make it more attractive to renew or become a new member with us until the end of 2015 instead of the understandably high rate until the end of the current year (2014).

 

As of 1 January 2015, new members will only have a pro-rata rate for the remainder of the 2015 year. The new price for 2015 is expected to be R 815 as at 1 January.

We trust this will make sense and answer any questions you may have?

Yours truly,

 

David Dugmore

Club Chairman (Tee2Pin GC)
