Membership Overview

There are many different aspects of becoming a member of Shepherd Golf. First is our association with the Southern Californian Golf Association, which is explained below. As a Shepherd Golf member you will be eligible to participate in all of our events throughout the year. You will receive opportunities for discounted rounds throughout Southern California golf courses, including discounted player fees when participating in a Shepherd Golf event. 

As mentioned above, a member of Shepherd Golf also becomes an immediate member of the Southern California Golf Association.

Members of SCGA also receive a bimonthly issue of FORE Magazine, an annual directory of Golf making you eligible to participate in SCGA tournaments (over 100 a year), and advanced tee times and pricing at many SCGA Golf Courses. This is just to name a few of the many benefits you gain by becoming a member of the SCGA and Shepherd Golf.
