What is the Golfmax Purchasing Program?
Golfmax is the Purchasing Program of the NGCOA Canada; where on behalf of its members, the Association negotiates volume-related agreements with suppliers based on the total membership’s purchasing power. Members usually recover their entire membership dues through the savings of just one supplier.
Is there a fee to access Golfmax?
. As a member of NGCOA Canada, your course is automatically entitled to the benefits and savings through Golfmax.
How can we calculate potential savings through Golfmax?
The NGCOA Canada has developed the Golfmax Savings Calculator that will give you a very good indication of the savings through the various supplier programs. Click here
to use the Golfmax Calculator.
How can we be sure our Golf facility is receiving the savings?
Your golf facility’s Golfmax Purchasing Statement that details your total spent and estimated savings achieved with all Golfmax suppliers is available to view at any time on your member record through the Members Only section of www.ngcoa.ca. In addition, it never hurts to inquire with the supplier to ensure you are receiving the savings as a result of your NGCOA Canada membership.

Is Golfmax and Ontrak the same thing?
They are separate organizations. Golfmax is owned and operated by the NGCOA Canada and encompasses the entire spectrum of over 60 supplier agreements. NGCOA Canada has contracted with Ontrak to manage a component of those agreements, specifically with food & beverage distributors, manufacturers, cleaning & janitorial suppliers, equipment, smallwares, office supplies, and uniforms. For information on Ontrak, please visit www.ontrak.ca.
If my golf facility purchases from a Golfmax supplier, how does that support the NGCOA Canada?
Each Golfmax supplier provides a volume rebate to the NGCOA Canada based on the total purchasing by members through that supplier. These rebates are then directed to a number of initiatives such as advocacy, research, education, player development, publications, events, and maintaining low membership fees. In addition, a percentage of those supplier rebates are directed to each NGCOA Canada chapter based on the total amount of purchases by members within that Chapter. These chapter rebates contribute to a number of local initiatives including guest speakers at meetings, advocacy, research, tourism strategies, etc.
Where can I provide feedback on the Golfmax Program?
Cedar Nisbet at (613) 226-3616 ext. 14 or your Regional Director would like to hear your comments. NGCOA Canada member feedback on the Golfmax Program is critical to its success.
