Play Ability Test

Play Ability Test

All prospective applicants to the PGA of Canada are required to register as an Applicant with the PGA of Canada prior to registering for a Play Ability Test (PAT) in 2019. Once an application has been accepted, the PGA of Canada will notify the PGA of Alberta Office that there is a new applicant who will be attempting a PAT. Once an application has been confirmed by the PGA of Canada, the PGA of Alberta will begin accepting applications for any one of five possible PAT’s in the 2019 season.

PAT exemptions are available, as determined by the PGA of Canada. To see if you qualify for an exemption, click this link. Please note: all other requests for PAT exemptions are reviewed by the Membership Committee and they determine whether or not an exemption is granted.


One of the following must be completed to register as an Associate Professional with the PGA of Canada: 

Pass the PAT IN Score to register as an Associate Professional:

  • 36-holes (two 18-hole rounds) of stroke play golf. The PAT IN Score to register as an Associate Professional is two (2) times the course rating plus 20 strokes.
  • Must pass the PAT Out Score (two times the course rating plus 15 strokes) within 6 years and prior to becoming a Class A Member or must restart the program.

Pass the PAT Out Score to register as an Associate Professional: 

  • 36-holes (two 18-hole rounds) of stroke play golf. The PAT Out Score is two (2) times the course rating plus 15 strokes.

Failure to successfully meet either standard will result in the applicant not being accepted. If an applicant is unsuccessful in each of their PAT attempts over the course of a season, those applicants may try again the following season. Successful applicants will pay dues for the upcoming season at that time. They will not receive credit for hours worked in the previous season.
