Becoming a member of the Federation means obtaining a licence from the Federation. The licence grants its holder the status of member of the Balearic Golf Federation and qualifies for participation in official local or state sports activities or competitions.
An amateur player's sports licence is required to practice golf in Spain, according to the rules of the Consejo Superior de Deportes and the legislation currently in force.
The licence reflects three economic concepts:
The validity of the federative licence is based on the calendar year, that is, from January to December of each year. Therefore, when a new federation membership is begun, the validity of its licence is established from that date until the 31st of December of the same year, with one single price that cannot be subdivided. The annual licence fee covers the fee from January to December of each calendar year.
New licenses cover the period from the date of registration until the 31st of December of the same year. Prices and categories, according to age, are detailed in the following table:
|Senior with handicap||Over 21 years of age||102,00€|
|Senior without handicap||Over 21 years of age||90,00€|
|Junior||Between 17 and 21 years of age||46,00€|

|Starter||Under 10 years of age||28,10€|
|*** All the prices listed include the territory fee (€18,80 for adults and €10,50 for children)|
The player who wants to join the federation will need to fill in the required form for this procedure.
All licence procedures within the Balearic Islands Community must be processed through the Balearic Golf Federation or a Federated Club, by the following means:
