Ever wondered how other country clubs are in different places? If you’re a celebrity, really rich, or a golfer, maybe you’ve seen more than any of us. But if you’re not, or if you’re one of those who are still deciding on which country club to choose, we’ve come up with a list of the most expensive country clubs here in our country.
This list only supplements the Top 10 Country Clubs we already have, which are based solely on reviews. The difference is, this list comprises country clubs which are relatively so exclusive that member reviews are not easily available.
This list also serves other purposes. For non-members, they may then be able to compare notes in terms of choosing a country club perfect for him or her. For those who are already members of country clubs, what you can do is to check whether the grass is really greener on the other side. After all that’s what we are here for aren’t we? To give you choices for you to just easily pick and decide.
