    I was just answering Shannon's question. My parents loved golf; my mother used to play with an old guy who, I was told, was one of the most famous players ever. You couldn't prove it by me, but he was a nice old man. :)

    You should have learned how to play; then maybe you would not be so much of a snob. :)

    Given what country club fees are, I'd likely be more of one. One I like in the area, the Chevy Chase Club, costs over $100k to join, aside from the annual dues and other feeds.

    That $100k is a share of stock which in all likely-hood you can sell for more than you bought it for. The kicker is that you have to have a sponsor and numerous references. They don't let just anybody in that can pony up the money. FYI, most of the richest people in Country Clubs are NOT snobs. It's the management types that are allowed to join under the company membership umbrella that are trying to impress others. They only have to pony up the dues and charges every month. I have seen a number of these snobbish pricks.

    As you say; I wouldn't know. My parents belonged to a club, but I've never been interested.
