Thompson Passport

Introduced in 2012, the program permits Friend Members of the Society to play a number of Stanley Thompson courses at a preferred rate.
 
2017 PassportThe program is straight forward:
  • every paid-up individual member of the Society receives two complimentary passports. Take a friend to golf with you.
  • the participating clubs are all Thompson Society Member Clubs
  • Friends can only play each club once in a year
  • a participating club provides tee times at their discretion; this point is important
  • there can be as few as the club wishes
  • and on a day and time the club decides
  • this would usually be at a time when the tee is not busy.
  • most Member Clubs have offered a preferred rate, but the green fee is entirely up to the club (there are no particular expectations)
  • extra income is earned through cart rental, food and beverage

Friend member has these responsibilities:
 
  • call the club’s Golf Shop and request a tee time 
  • identify themselves on arrival with their passport
  • pay all club charges
  • adhere to all host club policies and regulations (almost all of our members belong to a private or semi-private club, so they are aware of dress code, course etiquette and good sportsmanship)
 

An important benefit to a member is experiencing a Stanley course which they might not otherwise be able to play. Responses we have had from members, include comments such as these:

 "... I was treated as a member."

"... each course is a different property but with distinguishable Thompson hallmarks."

"... if I lived in the area I would join."

"...I intend to use my passport next year when I travel out-of-province.

 
We would love to hear from you with a testimonial about your experiences in using your Passport.  Send to Heather Fraser, membership@stanleythompson.com, and we'll post them on the website.
