Golf Instruction and Coaching

Platinum Club Program

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the program for the past six seasons, the Golf Shop is once again offering what we call the 'Platinum Program'.

Getting a great deal is what most people look for when deciding to purchase something. Most people wait for an item to go on sale before they buy it. Unfortunately, this usually means waiting until much later in the season or having to wait until a less desirable time of year for that particular item.

In order to help our members avoid this dilemma, our platinum program will entitle participating members to the following benefits:

  • 25% discount on all regularly priced clothing (either in stock or special order) all the time.
  • Pay No Tax on all other merchandise purchases including golf clubs, balls, shoes, gloves, bags, etc. Special in-season discounts for Platinum Club participants only.
  • Participation includes all members of the household.
  • The annual fee for this program is only $130+ hst.

Recently, we took one of our members to a club fitting at a manufacturer’s facility in Oakville. At the end of the fitting, he was presented with a recommendation for a new set of irons, two hybrids, and a driver. After joining the Pro Shop’s platinum program, his price savings on the club purchase was significant. Here is how the platinum program worked in this case:

    Golf Shop Price   Big Box Competitor
Irons (8)   $1,049.99   $1,099.99
Hybrids (2)   $438.98   $459.98
Driver   $380.00   $399.99
Sub Total   $1,869.97   $1,959.96
HST   n/a   $254.79
Total   $1,869.97   $2,214.75

In buying through the Pro Shop as a platinum member, he saved $344.78 versus buying at an off course retailer.


Golf Shop Pricing Policy

´╗┐We will provide the members of the St. Catharines Golf and Country Club with the highest quality golf related merchandise and services at the best price, every day. If you find a lower advertised or posted price on an item that we sell, we will match the price and beat it. We carry a wide variety of merchandise, but if we don't have a particular item that you're looking for, let us know and we will order it in for you.
