Provisional Membership

If the criteria to become a new Member can not be met, the Club has introduced Provisional Membership, designed for those who do not know five existing members willing to nominate, second and referee their membership.

It is primarily intended to apply to applicants who have previously belonged to a Golf Club in another country, state of Australia or rural WA but may also apply to those who are new to golf or golf club membership. Similarly, it may be used by those who belong to a metropolitan Golf Club other than Cottesloe who do not know enough members at Cottesloe to apply through the normal channel.

Provisional Membership applicants are required to:

  • Complete the Club’s application form and return it to the Membership Officer.
  • Provide a reference from the Golf Club where they previously belonged as a member.
  • Where an applicant has not previously belonged to another Golf Club they are required to provide two personal references attesting to their good character. References should be provided by a current or past employer, a current or past sporting club, professional associates, members of other Golf Clubs or similar.
  • Attend a structured interview which will usually be conducted by the Women’s Captain, Vice Captain and President. The interview process will be similar to that used when interviewing candidates for employment.

Successful applicants will be invited to play golf with a member/s of the Women’s Match Committee where the applicant can confirm that they are aware of appropriate golf etiquette and rules, or seek advice as necessary.

Provisional membership is available for a maximum of two years. At the end of that time candidates wishing to proceed to full membership are expected to know other members well enough to apply through the normal process i.e. be nominated, seconded and have three referees.
