2018 is here, Happy New Year! We hope you had a joyous and relaxing holiday break filled with family, friends and lasting memories.

All of us wish you and your families a very Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you when the season starts again.

NEW Membership Benefits!
More Options, More Golf
We are currently hard at work finalizing multiple programs and relationships to provide our members with more courses to play than ever before. Details are being solidified and we will send out additional information as soon as we can. At the core of this will be a revolutionary booking procedure we’re calling ‘Concierge Booking’.
Our Concierge Booking service will simplify the reservation process for tee times booked outside your home club. This is an effort to:
- a) Provide more facilities to play at special Windmill pricing; and
- b) Make the booking easier to better secure tee times at other clubs.
More details to follow… stay tuned!
New Social / Fitness Club
We are also pleased to announce that we have an affiliate membership at a premier downtown facility, the Bow Valley Club this year. Included for every Hamptons member is an Associate Social Membership at no charge.
As an Associate Member you receive:
- Access to their exceptional restaurant
- Two hours of free parking
- Use of their fitness and squash facilities for daily drop in rate

2018 Dues & Fees
We want to thank all of our members for their wonderful support in 2017. The proshop, restaurant & dining facilities all saw increased and continued patronage throughout the year. Member events also saw record participation. Your Hamptons team is already working towards making 2018 the best yet.
This year have a minimal increase to the primary dues and some of our service- based items to help offset more wage increases, supplier increases, taxes, etc.. We strive to be fair and competitive in this respect while providing you with the best product and service possible.
Please find below links to the various 2018 Dues options. We have three different dues forms this year for our three different options available (Family, Corporate or Passholder).
We have two options for payment:
- Option 1: Payment in full by January 31st, 2018, or
- Option 2: Two equal payments; half by January 31st, 2018 and half by March 31st, 2018 (a $200 fee applies with this option).
Please click, print and return your one form from the below three options:
Please note the automatic late fee of $250 if payment is not received by the January 31st deadline.
Annual Cart Dues
Here are the annual due guidelines for individual, couple, family and passholder carts to help determine what is best for you:
- As an annual cart member at the Hamptons, a cart seat (one seat) is included at your home club.
- When playing another Calgary Windmill club (Springbank, Silverwing or Boulder Creek), the annual cart due at The Hamptons does not carry – it is for cart use at Hamptons only. A reduced Windmill cart fee of $15 applies when visiting the other clubs.
- A ‘Hamptons Only’ passholder pass includes a cart seat (one seat) at the Hamptons. These passes may not be used at partner Windmill courses.
- A ‘Windmill’ passholder pass includes a cart seat (one seat) when playing any Windmill Club (The Hamptons, Springbank, Silverwing, Boulder Creek, Wilderness Club or Magrath).
- Daily user rates apply for 9 or 18 holes at The Hamptons or the other clubs if you prefer to bypass an annual cart due and simply pay or charge for carts as you play.
Separate 2018 forms will be sent to all Founder Members. Please contact the Pro Shop for any questions in the meantime.
Passholder Option (Change for 2018)
Our Passholder option has been a popular choice in past years – a number of members elect to go this route for it’s flexibility and variety to play other clubs. We recognize the importance of keeping this option as fluid as possible.
Two options will be available and all passes will again include cart.
2018 Passholder Options:
- Hamptons Only Passholder – the same rate as all our annual member dues with the same flexibility to share with friends, family or clients. This option is for play at Hamptons only and includes cart.
- Windmill Passholder – This option allows use of passes at all local and managed Windmill courses (The Hamptons, Springbank, Silverwing, Boulder Creek, Wilderness Club and Magrath). These passes are fully transferable and include cart at all the listed courses above – no additional fees.
Note: A Maximum of 4 passes may be used per day when visiting a Windmill course outside of your home club.
Credit Cards or Pre-Authorized Debit
Numerous methods for payment are permitted for daily purchases, monthly accounts or annual dues. All primary members must maintain an up to date credit card or pre-authorized debit on file with the club in order to receive account charging privileges.
Statements will continue to be sent out at the beginning of each month and members will have 10 days to review and submit payment using their preferred method.
If the account is not cleared up by the 10th of the month, the system will automatically charge the members credit card or pre-authorized debit on file.
Annual Dues Options (further explained)
As a member, you have the choice of one of the three following options:
- The Family Option: Unlimited golf for 2018 for the primary golfer as well as the option for spouse and juniors (up to the age of 30) to pay an annual due.
- The Passholder Option: 40 transferable green fee passes. In 2018, there are two options: i) Hamptons Only Passes, or ii) Windmill Passes. These options were explained above in the 2018 Dues & Fees section.Additional passes may be purchased at any time and passes must be used in the same year as purchased (no carry-overs).
- The Corporate Option: You may assign one or two additional players on your membership as designates. Designates receive full primary member privileges. Each Designate is responsible for the primary annual due as well as our $750 annual F&B minimum.

F & B Minimum
Our clubhouse minimum for 2018 will be $750 per primary member. The minimum includes any food or beverage purchased in the clubhouse, on course or at the Pavilion.
Please note if you prefer to settle a purchase with cash, credit or debit (rather than charging to your account), please advise your server you are a member and that you want the amount to be tagged to your account – so it is allocated towards your minimim.

Advisory board made great progress in developing some strong special committees as well as providing great feedback to management and ownership.
