Q: What happens if I let my membership lapse?
Memberships must be renewed every year or you will need to either re-join and pay the applicable joining fee or pay the renewal fee for each year that has lapsed.
Q: What do I do if I have lost/misplaced my Members badge? / My badges have been stolen?
The member is to immediately advise the Gold Coast Turf Club in writing with the following details when requesting replacement badges:
Type of badge lost, i.e. primary badge or guest badge
Date of loss
The member will also be required to return the remaining badges in the set.
A fee of $60 will be charged for each badge not returned.
Once the Club receives notification and payment, the member will be issued with a new set of badges. The old membership number will be recorded as invalid for security purposes.
In the case of any Member requesting replacement badges on more than one occasion , an amount equal to the full yearly subscription fee will be required as payment. This matter will also be referred to the Board of Directors for review.
In addition, if a member reports lost, misplaced or stolen badges within two (2) weeks of a feature raceday (i.e. Melbourne Cup, Magic Millions, Prime Minister’s Cup), the badges will not be replaced until after the feature raceday.
