5 Questions You Should Ask Before Joining a Country Club, Silver Spring, Maryland

There are several country clubs out there that are likely vying for your attention, and it’s a decision that shouldn’t be made without the right research. After all, you’ll be spending most of your leisure, and perhaps some of your business time here. How do you know which one is best for you?

Argyle Country Club, Montgomery County’s most affordable golf, tennis, swimming, and dining club since 1945, shares five questions that you should ask yourself and the membership director before joining a country club.

Can I See Myself Coming Back Here Consistently?

This is an obvious question, but take into account the golf course and dining options when making this decision. Play through the entire golf course on your own time and gauge whether you would enjoy coming back every weekend. Explore the dining options to ensure the fare is consistent with your own diet, especially if you are very health conscious.

country clubDo They Offer Lessons?

Whether you want to work on your backhand with morning tennis lessons or have children that you’d like to enroll in golf lessons, inquire about pricing, schedule, and availability.

What Is the Vibe of the Staff and Other Members?

You’ll be spending a lot of time at your country club, so make sure the overall demeanor of the staff and members meld well with your personality. Some country clubs have a very formal staff who can seem “stiff” at times, while others are more relaxed and laid back. What feels right for you?

Is It Kid-Friendly?

This is important whether you have children or not. If you are a parent who wants to bring their child along, check to notice if there are other kids walking around with their parents.

Do You Plan on Hosting Special Events?

Country clubs are the perfect spot to host your special events, from a Sunday luncheon to a summer wedding. If you’re the type of person that loves to entertain, ask your membership director about their policies on hosting special events.  Inquire about the cost of the wedding hall, as well as catering options. Also look to make sure there will be adequate parking that can accommodate your guests along with other country club members.

If you’re in Montgomery, consider starting your affordable country club membership at Argyle Country Club. The club offers superior junior and adult programs, tennis lessons, swim clubs for swimmers and divers of all skill levels, world-class dining and catering, a championship 18-hole golf course, and more.
