Top 6 Reasons A Golf Membership Is a Smart Investment

Friday, Mar 24, 2017  |  admin  |  Golf


With The Masters coming up at the highly prestigious Augusta National golf course, you may be pondering the idea of a golf membership of your very own. Obtaining one at Augusta National, however, is a challenging feat. There’s a waiting list of at least 300 people! Instead, we encourage you to check out nearby Harbor Club Golf Course (especially during Masters Week.) 

It is a beautiful, challenging, yet fun course to play, but with easier access at a lower price point. And if you are a resident of the Lake Oconee area, a Harbor Club golf membership can make a lot of sense. You already know that playing golf often will improve your game, plus there are other surprising health benefits to be enjoyed as well. Here are six additional compelling reasons to consider a Harbor Club golf membership:

  1. Garner enjoyable networking opportunities
    Need to foster some new client relationships? Or seek out new leads from a potential customer? Or perhaps entertain some of your best reps? An exclusive golf membership can help you do all of that and more. Playing a round or two at Harbor Club provides an excellent way to network, develop, and personalize important business relationships. What’s more, Harbor Club’s beautiful golf course and magnificent Club House are very inviting environments to relax, get to know one another and truly enjoy each other’s company.
  2. Save money
    For those that are passionate about playing a lot of golf, or plan to play more golf in the near future, a membership can save a tidy sum on greens fees alone. Compare and contrast what the costs would be for each …and don’t forget to take into consideration the expenses for the other amenities that you gain access to (mentioned below.) When you add it all up, a membership can offer an incredible value.
  3. Access additional (awesome!) amenities
    It’s not just the award-winning Weiskopf/Morrish designed 18-hole golf course that you would have access to. You also get to enjoy the golf practice facilities, tennis and pickleball courts, the <href=”#boathouse”>Boathouse Marina (including access to boat storage), all fitness and recreation facilities (including The Grove), swimming pool, men’s and ladies locker rooms and our fantastic dining and banquet facilities.
  4. Play fun tournaments
    A Harbor Club golf membership can provide direct access to friendly tournaments and other exciting golf activities throughout the year. Members can join the fun with Oktoberfest, Summer Sizzler, and Power of Two (where both the LGA (Ladies Golf Association) and MGA (Men’s Golf Association play) tournaments, just to name a few. And don’t forget about getting first dibs on other Harbor Club tournaments, like our famous Superintendent’s Revenge, Turkey Shoot, and Santa Claus Open.
  5. Gain warm friendships
    The more you play at one course (ours, in particular) the more likely you’ll cultivate new friendships with people who love to play golf just as much as you do. Plus, you’ll gain access to a full calendar of fun and entertaining events throughout the year, giving you more opportunities to socialize with a wonderful community of fantastic people.
  6. Gain a sense of belonging
    As you get to know other Harbor Club members, as well as our friendly staff, you’ll become more ingrained in our community. Pretty soon, everyone will know your name! And perhaps the wait staff will remember your favorite beverage or entree. Soon, you’ll be a regular and feel like part of the Harbor Club family …and that’s a great feeling to have.
