I have the opportunity to join a local country club at reduced rates due to being under 40. It's a pretty good deal although still expensive relative to my public club. I have a very deep background in golf and carry a + 1 handicap so. I know my way around playing and etiquette situations. I have picked up some very good clients from my public club but it is limited and not as conducive to networking. I know better that to prospect in a club setting but golf relationships can easily develop into business ones. I am at a point in my business where I want to replicate my ideal clients and prospects.
Anyone have successes or failures in the country club setting? How did you go about it? I do know the downsides having experienced some in my club and having worked in country clubs for many years.
