Country Club Cost Comparison

COUNTRY CLUB COST COMPARISON

The Palm Beaches are home to some of the finest luxury country clubs in the world. Besides spectacular homes, each individual community has its own personality and nuances regarding golf, boating, tennis, and social activities. Some communities also have mandatory membership and rules of purchasing a membership as a stipulation to being able to buy a home in the community.

This spreadsheet is a guide to help you navigate membership requirements and what costs will run. We check equity costs, mandatory or non mandatory requirements, annual dues, initiation fees, trail fees, and refunds on equity every six months. To learn more about each individual club, click on the individual country club link or feel free to call me at 561-346-8383. No matter what your decision, these clubs are all like adult camps. No matter which one you chose to belong to, you should have a great time!
