Won't find a better deal than Prairie Dunes.

TPC San Antonio usually runs a deal around $5k for national members in the spring before the Valero. That gets you onto other private TPCs around the country too. A member at TPC Treviso Bay in Naples

+1 to this. Also very playable 10 months of the year. They r on temp greens January and February but you can get good weather in December and March.

$10,000 down and either $5000 or $6000 annually. That covers cart fee at all properties as well. 

i just wish Dormie would do an a la carte option. while 5 courses on paper sounds great, Nebraska and Evansville, IN are not the easiest places in the world to get to

I have heard good things about Succession Club. Another thought, and perhaps less money, is Berkeley Hall near HHI. Two 18's and cottages onsite. Also close proximity to the SAV airport.


Does Berkeley Hall offer memberships if you aren’t a home owner? My parents are in Belfair, right down the road, and you need to reside in the neighborhood as far as I know.

Could be wrong, but I believe that Belfair also has some non-owner memberships.   I know BH offers a national membership as I looked into it.  

 

I LOVE the courses at Belfair.  I could see myself living in either BH, Belfair or CR.

10k initiation and 5-6k a year isn't expensive for national memberships.

that's not including travel costs/lodging/food & drinks. It'll be more than that a year

Vol4Life,

 

Both are great spots. Philly Cricket is probably easier to get to, but Prairie Dunes has a very secluded vibe once you are there, especially if you stay on property.

Dormie donates a lot of memberships to local charities which auctions them off.  I was able to win a full year national membership for a fraction of that cost, which includes the initiation.  I will have the option to renew my membership at the full annual rate.

Dang that's awesome. I'd probably do that if it waives the initiation fee.

He's correct. Dormie is in almost every golf related online auction. If you can find one that doesn't get national attention, you will likely be able to get it for not much more than the annual dues and as he said you are an official member at that point and can renew if you want for the annual dues.

Hi. I’m also considering a second golf home ... I have options to join either Philadelphia Cricket Club or Prairie Dunes. Any thoughts on one vs. the other?

I looked at both and talked to some golfing buddies as well. Philly CC tee sheet is slammed and tough to get tee times. PD is a wonderful vibe and all golf one you get there. Quality cabins as well. I believe they still do a shuttle to and from Wichita airport.

I looked at Philly Cricket and remember National Memberships were capped at about 12 total rounds (you and a guest would be 2). PD did not return my request.

A couple questions.... Are you willing to go thru a process to join? Also are you looking for somewhere to go opposite your golf season in Michigan? Many clubs have national memberships that are affordable. Philly Cricket, Merion, Prarie Dunes, Sherwood CC, Baltasrol, and many others. Just really depends on what your looking for.

Any idea what the Baltasrol details are?

Baltursol would be tough. My member host said you need to have 5 members put your name forward that have known you for something like 7 years. So if you have that kinda connections already great, but they still have a wait list. The blue blood clubs almost have to tap you on the shoulder and not the other way around. Doesn't mean it can't happen, but would be more of a longer term horizon.

Initiation now 15K and 6K/yr dues. $800 per night for use of their on site cottages. 

 

Wouldn't give any firm numbers but said their ultimate goal is 10 courses, and each time they've added a course dues have gone up a grand

You can get the first year with the initiation cheaper. Dormie donates memberships + first year to just about every golf auction for a $10k starting bid and they usually end up going for not much more than that. They don't have much more room to raise the annual. They will lose national members without a close course if they go much higher. Question will be as they buy new courses will the network benefits for the local members allow them to raise the annual and forego the national member without a close course.

Look into Hawk’s Ridge in Ball Ground, GA. Flying into Atlanta is easy from anywhere. The club has overnight accommodations, I believe.

I've heard that they're in a membership "drive" to generate cash and have been contacted almost weekly to follow-up on my interested from last fall. Not sure if that's a good sign or a bad one, but it's a great facility.

Interesting. It is a bit remote, depending on one's perception of such things. My friend is a national member who spends most of his time in NYC. He considers the drive from Hartsfield up to Ball Ground to be no big deal but his frame of reference is driving from NYC out to the nearest accessible public golf courses or clubs where his friends belong.

It's 60 miles each way through some of the worst traffic in the country. I wouldn't be very interested in that drive.

Right. A hassle for one round, but pretty easy for a weekend stay (at least compared to NYC). Before COVID it could take you an hour to get from Manhattan to midtown. My friend says he is using his car a lot more than he did in prior years simply because traffic in the city is down dramatically.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
