My membership renews in December. A couple of years ago, I got an “it’s time to renew” notice in July.
I emailed them that it’s not time to renew in July. They replied that my account would be updated to send me only a single renewal notice, 60 days before expiration. It’s been fine since then.
I’d suggest emailing them to request they update your account similarly.
You've got it all wrong, predictably. This NOT the "answer". You've already got that.
This has nothing to do with what you want to know, (despite being told immediately what the answer was).
This is about testing balls for compliance, not how to make sure that some silly weekend golfer doesn't find himself playing in the Masters because he kept a golf ball in his glovebox. Get a grip.
