Golf Memberships

We work with golf clubs across the country in order to offer an affordable membership payment option for their players.

How important is finance in the sector?

Golf club memberships can be a big outlay, so giving your members the option of spreading the cost of joining fees as well as the annual subscription can be the difference between securing a new member or not. It can also encourage members to introduce additional family members to the club.

Your challenges and opportunities

If you’d like to improve your club’s cash flow and help your members spread the cost of their subscription, our flexible finance options are just what you need. As a golf club, you can choose to offer our interest free finance or interest bearing finance products depending on what works best for you. Unlike other providers, if your customer defaults on their finance agreement Hitachi will not recall the money from you.

Neil Dewing, Membership Administrator of Mapperley Golf Club, said:

“We’ve used alternative suppliers for our Membership Finance package in the past but would recommend switching to the Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance Golf Membership facility at your golf club.

“Hitachi has certainly the best package when it comes to IT systems, ease of use and administration. We were really attracted by the financial benefits of the Hitachi package offered to both the Club and our Members.

“What really stood out for us was the service we received, they were helpful, organised and knowledgeable from start to finish. It made such a difference to deal directly with a team dedicated to the golf industry who had a genuine understanding of what we were looking to achieve.”
