Unlimited Year-Round Golf
Your monthly dues include your golf, so it makes it very simple and convenient to go to the Club for a quick nine or eighteen. You will have unlimited access to a quality golf course. If you choose to walk, then there is no additional charge and you get the extra health benefits of walking. Playing is also a much better way to work on your game than spending a lot of time on the driving range
Most have openings for members and that makes getting a tee time easier. The few peak times such as Saturday morning are a little more difficult, but generally other mornings and afternoons are no problem.
Whether it’s a colleague, client or just a friend, there’s a certain pleasure to have in extending an invitation to come and play at “my club.” Even if you’re covering all costs, paying and playing somewhere just isn’t the same as inviting someone to be your guest at your club. Plus, you can also count on the staff to be very attentive to your guests and make sure they have a memorable experience.
Forming a Regular Group
You will have the opportunity to meet many new people with similar interests and backgrounds. With the help of the Pro Shop staff, it is easy to find a game and eventually develop a regular group if you choose.
Improving your game
Most clubs offer unlimited use of practice facilities including range balls and there is now a movement toward including golf instruction. Even if instruction is not included, you will have the opportunity get to know the Golf Professional, and he will get to know you and your game. This creates a much better learning environment.
With a family membership, the entire family has unlimited privileges and programs designed specifically for everybody in your family. It is also a wonderful way to spend quality time together to do something as a family. If they are not all interested in golf, there will undoubtedly be other amenities and programs such as swimming, exercising, and more.
Establishing a Handicap
Everett Golf & Country Club is member of the regional USGA organization and can host your official handicap. You will also get assistance with score posting such as learning how to adjust your score so that it can be posted properly.
The opportunity to participate in the Club’s tournament program is available. Many clubs have leagues or inter-club matches that allow you to compete against members of other clubs. This is particularly enjoyable since most matches are done on a home and home basis which gives you the opportunity to play other courses.
When you are a member of a private club, one benefit is the reciprocal use of other private clubs – Everett Golf & Country Club has agreements with 8 other clubs spanning from Vancouver B.C. to Walla Walla, WA.
Flexibility is about playing as many or as few holes as you want at no additional charge. This flexibility also includes the rounds played by yourself or with the rare five-some. If you are a golf nomad (not a member of a golf club) this generally means that you turn up, play 18 holes, and go home. One of the luxuries of being a golf club member is the you don’t have to worry about weather or darkness. If you have caught horrific weather or were unable to finish the round due to the darkness, the feeling of wasted money is inevitable. As a member, that’s never a problem. The weather affected rounds, spontaneous 9 holes, and opportune evening rounds all feel like a member’s privilege
Aside from walking and playing golf, which has already been mentioned, EGCC has a fitness center and swimming pool as part of the amenities that they offer to members. As a golfer, maintaining flexibility is extremely important. If you are one of those people that do not work out on a regular basis, this is a huge benefit.
A Great Clubhouse Environment
The Clubhouse can be a great place for eating, drinking, and socializing with your friends and families, very often with value-for-money prices. Joining a golf club is not for everyone, but, if you have a family and would like for them to join you when you play, it can be very economical. If your children are already golfers or may be interested in taking it up, it makes a great deal of sense. It also may make financial sense just from a business and networking aspect. You will have the opportunity to associate on a social level with a lot of potential clients and customers.
