Druid Hills Golf Club details
The Druid Golf Club offers a wide range of facilities for its members including a pool complex with three pools, a fitness center, a kid’s center, and tennis courts.
There are some types of memberships including the Primary Membership, the Intermediate Membership, the Social Membership, the Junior Executive Membership, the Full Golf Membership, the Family Membership, and the Sports Membership.
As an intermediate member, you will have unlimited access to all of the club’s facilities. Moreover, the immediate family members who are under 23 years old will also benefit from these facilities. But the intermediate members, compared to the primary members will not have the right to vote. This special category has a limited number of 50 members.
However, if you want to become a member of the Druid Hills Golf Club you will have to be invited by a member. This means that you must have at least a primary sponsor, plus two other members to approve you beforehand. Also, all the members who approve your application have to be in good standing with the club for three years in advance at least.
What are the extra costs?
You should budget for any private lessons, golf tournaments, and clinics as the cost for these is not included in the monthly dues.
Also, as with the majority of country clubs, there is a minimum fee for the food and beverages.
Good to know
The dress codes on the golf course, at the clubhouse, in the restaurants, or/and at the tennis courts can be strict. Make sure you know what you’re allowed to wear before going to any of these places so that there aren’t any surprises.
Also, there is a strict policy regarding electronic devices. It is not allowed to use voice communication by mobile phone in any dining area, on the practice greens or on the driving range, on the pool deck (excepting the limited areas specially designated for it), and in the fitness center or in the locker rooms.
