180k initiation, 18k in dues. Lots of people have said it before, but you'll never be able to justify the cost for just golf. You pay for the atmosphere, to be around like minded people that care for the property, because it is a big investment...for use only in winter time. But the friendliness and knowledge of the staff and conditions of the course, are second to none. I wish I would have been a part of a club a lot sooner.
'

let me get this straight... this is for winter only?

Yep. Club opens officially around thanksgiving (it's open at beginning of November) usually cleared out by 1st of May. Lots of clubs are seasonal only, as I am sure most are already aware.

Wow, I didn't know this.  Having only lived in TN, NC and briefly in KY the only clubs I've ever been a part of were year round.  I can understand up north where it's too cold to play during winter, but is it too hot to play year round in FL?

My guess is the membership is mostly snowbirds so there isn’t enough use during the summer to justify staying open.

You're correct mostly snowbirds, there's just not enough to justify staying open through the summer. Plus it gives golf operations and maintenance time to renovate as necessary without having to worry about golfers or members

Lots of rich people here. My CC twilight membership is $2000/yr, and I can barely afford that. Two 18s, twilight member get out 1hr before public twilight, no cart fees, full range, pools, game room, and 20% off pro shop sales.

All of us here are rich compared to someone, somewhere.

Which is why these “how much do you pay” threads are silly.

I don't know if they are all silly. Folks can have a legit reason, like getting readings on the norm or median, or the range of prices and services, etc..

I don't think it's a silly thread at all.  It's interesting to get a comparison how much golf costs in different parts of the country.  I learned a few things, such as how some clubs are only open during the winter.  Yes, all of us are rich compared to someone, somewhere, so it's all relative anyway.  The median income for a family of four is about $52k, so spending $2000/year on golf would be less than 5% of income spent.  Not too bad, but with all the other bills piling up it may seem out of reach (or impracticle) for most people.  I guess it just depends on how you want to spend your disposable income.  Most average American families would be considered rich compared with over 90% of the rest of the world, so spending over $5000 a year on golf would be considered rich to almost anyone, but still could be considered small change to the top 1%.   It's all relative, but interesting topic.  I don't look at or even have any awareness with the elite clubs in my area.  I'll never consider joining them so why look?  But it's interesting to hear now and then how much they cost.  It could be an eye opening for others.  They could say, "Hey l didn't know about this course down the street.  I could be paying less than half what I'm paying now and this sounds like a good place to play!"

By my count more than 25 responses have said how much their club costs but only 8 of those mention anything about where they are located.

The cost of belonging to a fully private club varies by two orders of magnitude, depending on location. And that's not even talking about the lower cost options other than fully private. If you don't know where it's located and you don't know what kind of club, it's silly to even be talking about price.

The median income for a family of four is about $52k, so spending $2000/year on golf would be less than 5% of income spent.

Except that those median income numbers are pre-tax dollars and what you spend on golf is post-tax.  Also, depending on area $2k a year won't necessarily go very far.  You could play 1 round a week on a mid-tier courses and hit 2k here.  Double that number and you're approaching a Jr/Jr Exec membership cost in the Phoenix area at a mid-tier club (closer to $5k/year, average monthly bill around 450-500).  And Phoenix really isn't a high cost metro.  There are much worse.

Not a super high end of a CC, but it was 3 local country club memberships for $235 a month. No minimums too which was nice.

About $1000 per month, all in.  I play about 120 times per year at my four club courses, so the cost is about $100 per round.
