Equity Membership

Mad River is the only true equity golf club in the Southern Georgian Bay area. The Club is 100 percent owned by the equity members, there is no debenture and no mortgage on our assets. Decisions are made by the equity members for the benefit of the members, their associates and the Club as a whole.

Equity memberships may be resold through the Club, subject to certain provisions and restrictions, and can be transferred through the owner’s estate. A limited number of memberships are currently available for purchase.

Mad River has adopted the “family circle” concept for associate members, who are not required to buy an equity share. In addition to their spouse and children, equity members may sponsor their parents, grandparents, siblings, in-laws, nephews, nieces grand-nieces and grand-nephews as associates of Mad River. Associate membership gives your family members full use of the Club, as well as either full or restricted access to the course, but does not include voting rights. Full details are available from the Director of Member Services.

Trial Membership

Mad River makes available a limited number of trial memberships. Typically used over a full season, the trial period gives you and your family an opportunity to experience the Club to determine if you would like to apply for an equity membership. While you are a trial member, you have full use of the Club and its facilities, and your guests are welcome. The trial program is highly regarded at Mad River and you can be assured of a warm welcome from members and staff.

Trial memberships are only available to the applicant and to his or her spouse and children, and trial members are not eligible to vote on Club business. Application is made on the Club’s Trial Application Form and must be accompanied by full payment of the annual dues as outlined below. All charges incurred at the Club, such as golf carts, guest fees, food and beverage, and pro shop purchases, are charged to your account and processed by Visa or MasterCard.

We welcome membership inquiries throughout the year.
