Membership in the ADGO is attainable by any person who is interested in the sport of disc golf. All applications for membership shall be accompanied by remittance of annual dues. Initial membership fee and annual dues will be determined by the Board of Directors during the 4th quarter of the calendar year for the next year’s fees. Dues are subject to change, however changes can only take place after (30) days of posted notification.
Membership dues are spent by the Affiliate Club to which that Member signs up for at that clubs discretion. This can be for a variety of things. Each club represents their Members differently by utilizing their dues for whatever they deem as being a “need” by that club and their operating courses.
Some clubs are working hard to improve facilities with their Member dues, ex. Walton Disc Golf Club has been using their funds to pour tee pads and acquire new signage for Mathews Park. Gwinnett Disc Golf Organization may use their money to host Members Events or sponsor local events as the county is very restrictive as to what they can do on Gwinnett courses.
I would suggest reaching out to your local clubs and asking them what they are spending their money on if you so choose. After our first ADGO Board of Directors meeting a couple weeks ago where each club (that was in attendance) spoke to how they are utilizing and benefiting from this surge of active Members in 2016!
