If you love golf, joining a private country club has likely crossed your mind, but you might have concluded that it's not for you. Unfortunately, many people make this mistake when they would benefit from joining; instead, they miss out on all the perks of the club and spend just as much on golfing at public courses. Here are some of the reasons why it's a wise decision to join a country club:
You Might Save Money If You Golf Often Enough
Many people hesitate to join a country club because of the membership fees, but if you golf regularly, you could already pay as much or more to play at public courses. When you have a country club membership, you pay a monthly or annual fee, and you can sign up for tee time whenever there's a spot available.
Improve Your Game
When you play at a public golf course, many people consider golf a fun hobby but may not take it very seriously. Most people who join a country club care a lot about improving their skills, and some members might be able to give you tips to improve your game. Even playing in an environment where more people take the game seriously will help you improve because competition sharpens your skills.
Play on a Top-Of-The-Line Course
Some public courses aren't very well maintained, and it's hard to get better at golfing when the grass is overgrown, there are objects on the green, etc. If you want a chance to get better at playing and even enjoy it more, it's nice being able to play on a great course that's well-maintained. Most country clubs will have much better courses than public ones.
Get to Know People in the Community
The members of country clubs often become very close, and many consider each other to be like family. If you want to feel like you belong to an exclusive group, joining a country club is a good place to start. You'll find yourself being invited to parties, getting new job opportunities, and being welcomed with open arms every time you go to the club.
Other Club Amenities
Most people join country clubs for golf, but what makes the membership fees worth the price is all the other included amenities. Many country clubs have tennis courts, swimming pools, restaurants, locker rooms, bars, etc. You can have a fun day there without even playing a round of golf.
