What’s better: Join a private club vs playing variety of public courses.

Join a club. Best decision I’ve made. You’re never going to justify the golf financially. The break even number of rounds just won’t make sense. I look at it as, my annual initiation (I’m a junior member and have 5 years to pay off) equates to about what I pay in public green fees and range balls per year. The monthly dues are the incremental cost of being a member, but I get a gym, pool, dinning options, tournaments, network of people, etc. it’s more than just golf. Also if you can get in somewhere as a junior, the financial hit is not as bad

I have always thought it was playing a variety of courses. Currently play a lot of public courses and 5-6 private a year. Still thinking I need to join a private club. More fun tournaments and freedom to play a 3:30 round whenever you want... Assuming you have a connection to the right private club, I would vote that.

Private course is a better option provided you and family will enjoy all the amenities. Cost - yes it is higher but nothing like planning regularly on well maintained courses which most public can’t keep up. Every club has some snobby ones and some cool down to earth members. I used to be member of one in SF but not in East coast. I like the group I play with on Public course and that makes it much better.

Private courses have groups/teams where you can meet other players. Competition play for most levels and inter-club competition. The extra perks of the club are nice as well. You can’t fully justify the fees but if you play regularly it’s often better as less wait times and faster play times.

I second that

Joining a private course has been amazing. As others mentioned, it’s much cheaper if you can join as a junior executive. It’s definitely worth taking the time to do your research and see how much they charge (not just initiation and monthly dues but locker fees, storage fees, food and beverage minimums, handicap fee, cart fees, etc.) You’ll also want to play the course and make sure you’ll find it interesting enough to play over and over again. One nice perk is that privates usually have partnerships with other courses so you can work with your golf pro or to get on to other private courses in your state or across the country.

I got an offer from, IQVIA for a role of salesforce developer. The HR has asked me to give a tentative joining date, for which I have provided over the email. After that I have asked him to give the updated offer letter along with my joining date mentioned . The HR said that, it will be a workday triggered and will come on a particular date next month. I want to check is it is the process at IQVIA. or do I need to follow up with him?
