My Club is $5,000 initiation and approximately $350 a month.  May let it go though...  Just not using it enough to justify the expense.

Massena Country Club, which really isn't a country club, it's just a title. It's just a public 18 hole course
Junior
for me its $165 for the season, with a few time restrictions but there not bad at all. For an adult its like 800 I think.

Actually, the rerouting had nothing to do with the Red Hill Expressway as it was done to curtail erosion of the exisiting creek bed and create new fish habitat. Conditions were much better later in the year.

I was misinformed then. A single that joined our group to make 4 told us what I stated earlier. Sorry about that. Guess he didn't know what he was talkin' about then. King's Forest is definitely one of my favourites to play. I may give it a go again this year then. Thanks for the update.

I am a member of Canongate Golf Clubs in the metro Atlanta, Georgia area. You can see thier website at www.canongategolf.com.

They are in a time of large expansion buying up many clubs in the area and in S.C. and Houston under Sequioa Golf Company. So their prices have gone up this season but still a very good deal.

Family yearly membership - usd $1500.00 p/year to have access to approx 15-19 clubs. Average cost p/round weekday $8.00-10.00 plus usd $14.00 cart fee. Weekend a little higher.

If you do not want to pay fees everytime - for approx usd $3000.00 p/year - for your home area courses.

same here.

Those numbers are so cheap.....I'm assuming a lot of public courses in there?

When I played at our nicer public courses ($80-120 green fee) memberships ran about $3100/year.

Our private courses generally run from 10-35k for the share, 10-15k for the transfer, $3300-4500/year in green fees (single), with a $600-800 spending minimum (which gets spent pretty easily anyways).

And you cant not get anything cheaper than that??? Where's that?

I'm in Alberta, Canada.

And no, that's as cheap as it gets for a private course.

For the public courses, yes there IS cheaper....but it surely isn't at our "nicer" courses.

weekday membership is $1200 with a $15 cart fee, but i plan to walk all year unless it's brutally hot...

an extra $400 will get me weekend and holidays, but if i play on the weekend, i won't be able to get anyone to play with me there, since it's like $65 weekend fee, for non members...

I am not a member but rates on average in  my area are as follows:

$5,000-50,000 initiation fee

$350-$800/monthly dues

Carts are usually $30/18 holes

I just cannot justify the cost of dropping $10,000/year to golf maybe 30 times.

Hey- is anyone a member at tpc snoqualmie ridge? (or any other private tpc?)
I'm hoping to hear someone's account of the course, (and whether it's possible to think of being a member or just a pipe-dream to think of playing/joining there)

if you wouldn't mind sharing the initiation (under age 40) and monthly dues either on here or via pm, i'd be grateful.

I'm a member of a private TPC. Rates really depend on where you live. My course when I joined was $40k, but I think it is now up to $65k. Dues are about $6k annually. If you stay 30 years I think you get 100% of your initiation money back.

It can't be LuLu since it's a member-owned club.

Speaking of LuLu, they have a deal with Plymouth where you have full privleges are both courses.

That is a great program, I think more clubs will do something similar in the future to help keep members. Because right now there seems to be a lot of movement in between clubs that are cutting some good deals for new members.

Something like this would be good for all involved.

I agree with you that it's a nice program.  Downingtown and Bucks County have a similar deal as well since they are owned (at least for now) by the same company.

I'm not sure, however, how many other clubs, if any will follow suit.

I would not be shocked to see more and more of the same in the future. Clubs are all struggling like crazy to generate revenue, so if they offer members a change of pace now and then as long as the distance is not too far people will be more likely to keep the memberships.

Not to mention guys in sales like myself can go call on customers that may not be local to their own course and have access to top quality golf and conditions.

Some course belong to a deal call reciprocal golf, the program does what I mentioned above at a failry reasonable fee.

1.  Kalamazoo Municipal Golf Courses (2 courses in Kalamazoo MI)

18 Holes - Milham Park (6,600 yds - Slope 130)
27 Holes - Eastern Hills (6,800 yds - Slope 119)

$800.00 for 2008 Membership (Fees go up ~ $25-$50 annually)

SW Mich is hard to beat in general, but our membership is particularly difficult to compare.  Everytime I see a public course in similiar condition in other states the membership rates and daily fees are considerably more than what we pay.  Not to mention that we have 2 courses, 45 holes total.  It's not a country club ... but great conditions and tournaments for what we pay.

That would be correct.  I was a member at Brandywine for several years and we had access to Penn Oaks, Cavaliers and Whitford as part of our membership.....you would be surprised how little you actually use it.  I think I played each club maybe twice and that was because we were closed for a redesign.

I agree with you that the "concept" of being able to play a second course sounds great, but the reality is probably less than 10% would actually use it and less than half of that 10% would use it often.

I'm not there yet, but I am looking at possibly retiring in Hot Springs Village, AR. We spent a few days up there last summer. I stopped in one of the pro shops and asked what the fees were and was told $22.96, tax included. I thought that was a pretty good deal and asked how much more for a cart and was told what I was quoted was all inclusive and the "before noon" rate, which goes down again at 2:00PM. I looked up the annual fees and for just over $2K/year you can have unlimited golf and cart playing on any of the eight public courses within the gated community, with each being beautiful courses winding through the foothills. They also have a private country club, a Club Corp property called Diamana which, I believe, was the site for a Nationwide event.

Yes, you are referring to Hot Springs Village, AR (Arkansas not Alaska).  There are 8 top-notch courses there of which you are a member if you are a property owner in the Village.  Diamana is the private course and has hosted tournaments in the past....plays around 7500-7600 from the tips....pretty difficult.  My parents retired there and love it.  There might not be a better "golf" deal in the entire country.

I've played it numerous times, although it's been a few years.

It's definitely a challenging layout with some really good holes.
