Levante Membership

If you want to join a friendly society that plays every Friday? Levante could be the society for you. We’re a social society and place an emphasis on enjoyment, but we also have several members with a competitive streak who make up our Costa Blanca League squad with a successful record in Division 1. We have a strong vibrant membership but there’s always room for more. Please see below for further information and Membership Application form.

If you would like to play with Levante as a guest to help you decide whether you want to join, then contact the Captain, at lgs.captain@gmail.com or Handicap and Competitions Secretary on  lgs.competitionsmember@gmail.com

Levante operates the following Guest Policy:

  • Levante Golf Society welcome guests to participate in all of our meetings and competitions.
  • Guests must be sponsored by a current member.
  • It is the responsibility of the sponsoring member to ensure accuracy of Guest handicap.
  • It is the responsibility of the sponsoring member for Guests behaviour and etiquette.
  • Guests will normally play with their sponsoring member.
  • There is no limit to the number of games a Guest can play.
  • Guests cannot win main competition prizes (unless part of a team game e.g. Texas Scramble).
  • Levante Golf Society awards a Guest prize when there are 3 or more guests at an event.
  • Guests may not participate in the 2’s or NTP competitions, which are intended for members only.

Members always take priority over guests on the playlist, providing they have booked their intention to play 7 days prior to the competition.

The Society was established in 1993 with the objective of:

‘fostering the golf interests of it’s members by arranging a calendar of fixtures throughout the year that shall be open to all players’.

Members are drawn mainly from the northern Costa Blanca of Spain and travel to various local courses in the Valencia to Alicante region. Meetings are held on a Friday, every week, alternating between the main competition events and more relaxed and informal matches. Reduced green fees are negotiated by the Society on behalf of members.

Players are eligible to become members of the Society on submission of 4 (four) handicap cards. These must be obtained whilst playing on local courses, three of which must be while playing as a guest of the society and with  a Committee Member on at least one occasion, and equal to 28 handicap, and upon payment of a subscription as fixed by the Committee. Thereafter, an annual subscription is paid as decided by members at an Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The standards of etiquette and rules of golf as determined by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews hold good, together with such Society rules issued from time to time (See the “Local Rules” Page). The European Golf Association (amended edition, 1 January 2007, handicap system has been adopted for all players handicaps. Records are maintained on a computer system.

A formal Constitution, approved by the membership, is available to members of the Society in either English or Spanish from the Secretary. The constitution provides for all members to propose amendments and committee nominations at the AGM.

If you wish to apply for membership; then - please contact the General Secretary.
