Structure of the Society
The primary function of the Senate is to appoint suitable members to the Board of Stewards. The Senate does not form policies for the Society. However, the Senate has reserve power to overrule any decision made by the Board or any committee or subcommittee or individual member of the Society. Such reserve power is to be exercised sparingly, carefully and with caution and only in exceptional circumstances.
Board of Stewards
The Board of Stewards is usually chosen among the Society's Benefactors. The Stewards must have integrity and a spirit to serve and are themselves passionate golfers. The Board is the governing body of the Society, and through its active participation in dedicated sub-committees, develops and oversees future strategy and direction of the Society.
Benefactors are prominent members who have rendered outstanding services to the Society. As senior members of the Society, Benefactors are in a position to make major contribution to the affairs of the Society. Benefactors are eligible to be appointed to the Board of Stewards. Benefactors may propose candidates to join the Society as Fellows.
Fellows are valuable members of the Society. The Society is careful in inviting only high-quality individuals (preferably those who have an interest in golf) to join as Fellows.
General Subscribers (eg. Meetup.com and Facebook) have no formal affliation with the Society. Subscribers are welcome to join "open-to-public" events organized by the Society. Numerous events and activities throughout the year, however, are exclusively reserved for Benefactors and Fellows.
