PINGS Membership


FPG Handicap


In Portugal, your handicap is held by the Federacao Portuguesa de Golfe (FPG) for an annual payment of €70 (paid before 31 March) or €77 for late payment after this date. This FPG fee is is due from your nominated Portugese Golf Club or Society. You can be a member of multiple Portugese Golf Clubs and Societies but you can only choose one for your FPG registration. If you wish, you can nominate PINGS for this, and pay the additional FPG fee through us. 


Annual PINGS Membership

€80 per Year (January to December)

If you join mid-year, the price is €60 from April or €40 from July

We do not offer any other pro-rata mid-year price adjustments. 

Renewal will then be due the following January at €80 per Year. 

Note: If you nominate PINGS for your FPG Registration, the FPG annual fee (as outlined above) is payable in addition to the fee for PINGS membership. 

Payment should be made to our bank account, using your name as the reference:

Guests playing in PINGS Tournaments

Non-Pings Members are welcome to play ONCE as a guest in Pings Tournaments. They may be invited by existing members or may register themselves using their FPG number. However, guests are not eligible for Prizes at the Tournaments, other than nearest the pin. If you wish to play further tournaments after playing once as a Guest, you will need to become a member of PINGS or purchase a Visitor Tournament Pass. 


Visitor Tournament Pass

To accommodate the situation where somebody is only visiting for a few weeks / months and would like to participate in PINGS Tournaments, we offer a Visitor Tournament Pass for €40 which will commence the day of issue and expire after 3 months. With this, you are welcome to participate in any of our Tournaments during the period. We do not offer FPG registration as part of this as it is only aimed at Visitors. Visitors are not eligible for Prizes at Tournaments other than nearest the pin. 


As per PINGS Tournament Rules, the maximum handicap for Men is 28 and for Women 36.

The Committee reserves the right to adjust playing handicaps if they deem such action is warranted.
