Membership in the Association shall be open to any regularly organized golf club in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia, whether or not incorporated, which endorses the objects of the Association and abides by its Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and such rules and regulations as may be established from time to time. As used herein, “any regularly organized golf club” means a permanent golf club composed of individual dues paying members who manage their own affairs through officers and committees whom they select. Such clubs shall operate permanently at one golf course which its members have the right to play but said club need not control the course where it plays.
Application for membership shall be made in writing to the Secretary of the Association, in such form and accompanied by such information as the Secretary deems necessary for the Board of Directors to have before passing on such application. Dues for one (1) full year shall accompany the application.
