GENERAL INFORMATION - Golf Course Memberships are available to Faculty/Staff, Emeriti Faculty and retired Staff of the University on an annual or semi-annual basis. Regular Memberships are offered to individuals on a periodic basis at the sole discretion of the Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation (DAPER). Constituents who obtain a membership to the golf course are referred to as a Faculty/Staff Member of the Golf Course or Regular Member of the Golf Course.

The term "membership" as used herein means a revocable license to use the golf course subject to: (i) the facilities available; (ii) the payment of dues and fees; (iii) the rules and regulations of the golf course as they may be amended, from time to time, at the sole discretion of the Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation (DAPER). This membership is nonproprietary, nonvoting, nontransferable and terminable. It does not carry, grant nor is it coupled with any ownership interest or other interest whatsoever in any real or personal property or in the income of the Stanford Golf Course or any other entity. It does not entitle any ownership rights of any nature whatsoever in the Stanford Golf Course or any of its facilities.

ANNUAL FEES - Members of the Golf Course pay annual fees.
