So it's really not a Country Club? It's a Semi-Private. If it was a true CC, then it would be controlled by membership. So sounds like you're paying for something that does not exist. I haven't read all the responses but I'd also bet it's operated by a management company. I have three basis thoughts concerning the place where I play golf, One, is nothing will change, and Two, they don't care, and three, bottom line is, if you don't like it spend you money somewhere else.
Also there is no exclusive tee times for members . So the public can play anytime of the day any day of the week . So what's the point of me having a membership !?
IMO there's no such thing as Semi-Private....it's just paying for preferred tee times and 10% off of stuff nobody buys.
What if your club has a hotel attached to it and the only way someone can get on without being a member is if they pay the hotel night rate + full rate + caddy.
I call it 7/8's private
