TRIBAL is much more than best-in-class women’s clothing. Its mission is to deliver on-trend collections that make you look and feel your best, for enjoying life’s adventures in comfort and style.


This spring marked 53 years as a Montreal-based women’s wear brand. What began as a women’s pants brand, TRIBAL has evolved into a fully merchandised lifestyle collection and fashionable golf and leisure line designed for on and off the course.


TRIBAL is stepping up its golf game with an expanded high-performance collection featuring a UPF50 fabric which is now available to order year round. This fashionable assortment offers sun protection, moisture-wicking and quick drying properties. Golf facilities looking to add TRIBAL’S Golf and Lifestyle collection to their shops are encouraged to contact Western Canada Account Executive Jennifer Skala at [email protected] for more details.


TRIBAL is a Bronze-level Preferred Partner of the Association and the presenting sponsor of the PGA of BC Awards Celebration, taking place next Wednesday at the River Rock Casino Resort. Click here to visit TRIBAL online.

Several PGA of Canada members have taken advantage of the flexible payment options the association implemented in 2020 to assist members with their dues payments. We are happy to continue offering this option to members. 

Pay your membership dues in full or select from one of the recurring instalment plans listed below when you access your annual invoice.

You can choose the 1st, the 15th or 25th of the month as the automatic charge date.

National dues have remained steady over the course of the past four years, but have been indexed this year to support the continued provisioning of programs and services. Depending on your zone, you will notice a slight increase. 

The deadline to set up a payment plan is October 20, 2023.

Our membership team put together a video to demonstrate how to register and take advantage of the payment plan. The video can be seen here.
