Don’t overlook many of the great benefits that GCSAA membership offers

by Jeff Jensen | May 05, 2023

Take advantage of the affinity program, tournament admission, retirement services and much more

As a valued member of GCSAA, I’m sure you know about the great education, outreach, networking, research and tools that the association provides to enhance your facility and further your career.  However, in order to fully maximize your membership experience, don’t forget some of the below benefits that you may have overlooked:

  • GCSAA Affinity Program: Member savings programs through numerous vendors including Columbia (50% off), Imperial Headwear, Dell Technologies, Office Depot, UPS, Avis, National/Enterprise, and Golf Safety to name a few. 
  • Complimentary tournament admission (based on member class) to select PGA Tour, PGA of America, LPGA and USGA Championships.  This includes the 2023 U.S. Open at The Los Angeles Country Club (limited to 50 tickets per day) and 2023 U.S. Women’s Open at Pebble Beach (Class AA, A, A-Retired, Class B and Class B-Retired members). 
  • Retirement Services: GCSAA has partnered with Creative Planning to assist members in preparing for retirement.  Free 401(k) reviews as well as a 20% discount. 
  • Career Coaching Services: Free resume critiques, reduced pricing on resumes and a slew of other career related services at discounted prices. 
  • GCSAA Disaster Relief: The GCSAA Disaster Relief Fund assists GCSAA members who suffer personal loss. The fund has continued to be a resource for members who face tragedy caused by natural disasters. GCSAA will provide financial assistance up to $2,000 to members who contact the association and whose daily lives are altered by the effects of the natural disaster (including wildfires). 
  • Compliance and Regulatory Assistance: GCSAA’s Government Affairs Team assists members with free compliance counseling, information, and resources.  Labor, water, and the EPA are just a few areas of expertise available to members.
