I am. Cost is about $8500/yr for all costs and fees. Don’t join one if you think you’re going to get clients from the people you meet there. There are already a dozen (at least) FAs there that everybody knows better than you. Only reason to join is because you like the golf/social aspect of it

Our family uses our club a fair amount - golf, pool, tennis. I have 3 young kids who love it. A great social outlet for my wife and I. We spend about 15k-20k per year. Don’t join a club and think you will get clients immediately. Over time you may, but not a reason to join.
