Membership fees can either be paid in full at the beginning or paid in increments over four years. For example, the Golf Membership Fee allows a prospective
member to “test the waters” by paying only $1,000 of the $10,000 fee the first year. Subsequent payments are $2,000, $3,000, and $4,000. If for
some reason circumstances change and the new member resigns before the final payment is due, there is no obligation to pay the remaining balance.
