Right off the top, I probably don’t play quite enough golf to warrant joining a club based on cost per round alone. I understand that it is gauche to think like that anyway, which I find mildly hilarious but it seems to be de rigueur to not worry about something so trivial as how much golf costs, in that private world anyway.
That said, deep inside of me there exists some kind of primal urge to one day belong to one of these things. The closest club to me is currently part way through a fairly extensive restoration and as such, has a bunch of great deals on membership this year (and likely next year as well).
Setting aside the actual course/club (small 150k pop city, Canada, nicest club in town but kind of small peanuts if you widen the net to 30 minutes driving) does anyone have opinions on past or current private club membership benefits or more interestingly, bad experiences.
I’ve never been a private anything guy, but I do like “nice things” if that makes sense. This course is in good shape and will be really nice in two years. My hesitation is more the whole clubby-club private members only bullshit. Am I overplaying this in my head? Also- never buying range tokens sounds awesome. Always playing the same track, less so.
Thanks I’ll hang up and listen.
