A golf club is one of three types:


Type 1: Members are located at a specific golf course (or interrelated community of facilities) with a valid Course Rating and Slope Rating where a majority of the club’s events are played and where the club’s scoring records are accessible and demonstrate a frequency of play; or


Type 2: Members are affiliated, or known to one another, via a business, fraternal, or social organization. The majority of the club members had an affiliation prior to organizing the club and have no affiliation to any one golf course or demonstrate frequency of play at a specific golf course. Members generally must be within approximately a 100 mile radius of the principal location of the golf club. The principal location of a golf club must be the physical address in the city or town which the club first identified in its application for an authorization; or


Type 3: Members have no prior affiliation, and a majority of the recruiting and sign up of the membership is done by solicitation to the public (e.g., newspaper, Internet). Members do not exhibit any regularity of play at any specific golf course. Members generally must be within approximately a 100 mile radius of the principal location of the golf club. The principal location of a golf club must be the physical address in the city or town which the club first identified in its application for an authorization
