Last Updated: 22 February 2019

As a Golf Canada member, Rules of Golf education is one of the many benefits included with your membership. For the first time, a new Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf is being introduced to provide a shorter, more user-friendly version of the Rules for golfers at all levels of the game. This version, which will serve as the primary publication for all golfers, features:

A more intuitive organization with 10 simplified topical groupings
A “Purpose of the Rule” description at the top of each Rule, to better define why the Rule exists
Easy-to-follow, full-colour diagrams and charts to aid in understanding
A simpler, more direct writing style

The Player’s Edition is being launched alongside the modernized full Rules of Golf book, which includes some of the most significant changes made to the Rules in more than 60 years.

Registration will open for REGULAR and ORDINARY members on March 15, ASSOCIATE members registration will open on April 1. 

The Associate members sponsor must be registered and paid up before the application will be approved.  Any Associate applications that are received before April 1st will be deleted and not processed.   For the regular and ordinary members once your membership has been approved do not delay in getting into finalizing and paying for your membership.  With new procedures, the registration procedure could be lengthened due to the new location of registration.  You must be a paid member to register for any CFBEGA event and we don't want you to miss out on one due to members not following through and completing the membership process.

As COVID Protocols are still in effect and continually changing we need to remember that the NPF staff are doing their best to accommodate us through the application payment process which will be at the Colwood Pacific Activity Centre.  There will be lines that people will have to wait through, please be patient and considerate of the staff, and the occupants of the building (it is a childcare centre)




CFBEGA memberships are valid from April 1 until the end of March the following year. You must re-apply every year, or your membership will not remain valid. Previous membership does not guarantee future membership, and a valid sponsor must be listed for dependants and associate members.  Junior dependants (16 Years and under) will be offered FREE membership as long as their parent/legal guardian is a regular or ordinary member. 

CFBEGA members may join Golf Canada and BCGA and maintain a handicap through online the Golf Canada handicap system. This can be added for an extra fee of $25 with membership application.

To apply for a CFBEGA membership you must:

  1. Fill out the online application (Selectable from the main menu under the memberships tab)
  2. Membership Directors will vet the application for accuracy and email you the approved application form in a timely manner. Usually within 5-10 business days.
  3. Print the approved application form and approved method of payment to the Colwood Pacific Activity Centre, or Naden  Kiosk.  Naden Kiosk is for Military and DND Civilians only.
  4. You will be required to sign a waiver at the kiosk and must do so in person, ie, you cannot sign up another member since they must be there to sign the waiver. (They accept cash/debit/major CC's)

That’s it! The kiosk may ask you to sign a waiver form if you are not active military, and will take your photo for your CFBEGA identification card.

CFBEGA has three membership categories:

The following conditions apply:

Membership applications will be vetted by the CFBEGA executive for eligibility prior to the prospective associate member attending the kiosk to pay their membership fee and having their photo taken for the ID card i.e. the executive will vet/authorize, kiosk issues ID card and takes membership fee. 

Membership fees for 2019/20 are as follows:

  • Regular Members (military)       - $40.00
  • Ordinary Members (civilian)      - $60.00
  • Associate Members                 -$145.00

Golf Canada/BCGA Membership (optional) $25.00 (includes membership, and access to Golf Canada's online handicap system). You must be a member of CFBEGA in order to be eligible. 




When you are signing up please consider supporting Golf Canada by adding a membership to Golf Canada for $25, this is half price for CFBEGA members only.  There are so many more benefits than just maintaining an official handicap (used in our Club Championship) such as:

  • Up to $1,000 for any travel-related incidents
  • Up to $2,500 for golf cart-related accidents
