Why become a federated player in Spain?
As many golfers will know, it is a prerequisite to have a valid Handicap Certificate in order to play golf in Spain.
Most golfers will have obtained their certificate from their golf club. In addition to having a valid handicap certificate, it is also a requirement in Spain to have valid insurance.
Each golf course offers everyone the chance to apply for a RFEG licence and the licence automatically covers the individual golfer for any accident that he/she suffers or might cause whilst playing golf at a federated golf club. This insurance covers against all Spanish legislation. Your own personal insurance policy will not be sufficient.
Registration is valid for one calendar year from 1 January to 31 December and the cost is approximately 77€.
Golfers, who register with the Spanish Golf Federation, are also entitled to enter a number of Open Golf Competitions, Events and Tournaments.
