Golf finance solutions for clubs

If you’d like to improve your golf club’s cash flow and help your members spread the cost of their subscription, our flexible finance options could be just what you need.

Members can pay 6, 10 or 12 monthly instalments instead of having to pay upfront via cash or card, which can help to make the cost of their membership more manageable. Choose to offer our interest free or interest bearing finance products depending on what works best for your golf club.

Golf membership finance gives your club a unique opportunity to support existing members while attracting new ones.

Real golf club success stories

Hear from the team at Leeds Golf Centre to discover how offering finance allows them to retain existing customers and attract new ones, with no risk to their business at all.

Leeds Golf Centre is a modern golf club with a growing membership, so it's important to give members the option to pay in a way that suits them. With our finance options, golfers can pay for their annual membership over 6, 10 or 12 months, making the cost more manageable.

We explain why there's no hassle, admin or risk for the golf club either. As our finance option offers a no recourse model, we won't recoup costs from the golf club if a member defaults on their payments.

“There is no risk at all from our point of view as a business working with Novuna. I get notified straight away with regard to finance and we get paid straight away. The service is impeccable, so from my point of view it was a no brainer.”

Nigel Sweet, Operations Manager at Leeds Golf Centre

The benefits of offering golf club finance with Novuna

  • Maintain cash flow. Unlike other providers, we will not recall the money from you if your customer defaults on their finance agreement

  • Drive new full membership subscriptions

  • Incentivise existing members to upgrade to full membership

  • Promote your club to a younger membership demographic who will be the future generation of your core membership

  • Reduce the number of members who consider leaving your club for financial reasons

  • Encourage existing member referrals and recommendations

  • Simple online application – members can apply online 24/7 and receive an instant decision

  • Choose a potentially cost-neutral option when you offer interest bearing credit, making it an affordable way for your club to start offering finance

But don't just take our word for it...

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

“Novuna 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 Novuna package 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.”

Neil Dewing, Membership Administrator, Mapperley Golf Club
