Is a country club membership worth it if I don’t play golf? I live in the south and many in my peer group are members so kinda feel pressured to fit in. But like what else do you do if you don’t play golf? Is it worth it? Any perks for the kids/wife? I’ve also heard the “networking” part but does this really pan out in real life for regular folks? -like “hey nice swing here’s a business deal!” Lol

Lol I would never pay for a membership if I didn't golf

I don’t golf, but my country club has social events/dinners and a nice swimming pool and large fitness center so I use it for those reasons. It’s a cheaper membership for access to those things without participating in golfing.

You most clubs have a social member option that is less expensive. It allows you to participate socially and swim but doesn’t include golfing or tennis.

Yeah just do a social membership. Business deals happen more often if you belong to a course that your clients want to play on but haven’t haha

My club has three membership types. Golf, tennis and pool. Pool is the cheapest and the golf is the most expensive. I have a tennis membership. I have two kids and they enjoy the pool a lot. We also like playing tennis.

We enjoy eating at the club house as well. Overall works nicely for us. You don’t have to play golf to enjoy a club. It’s a nice change of scenery, relaxed environment, green fields and good friendships. I think one of the best perks of living in suburbs.

Do the social membership option. We loved going to Sunday brunch at ours. Nobody in our house golf's.
