Local golfers are certainly recognizing that a membership of this caliber, which also delivers an impressive value, is a rare find.

Membership demand at The Golf Club at South River, a premier private golf club near Annapolis, has surged thanks in part to multi-million dollar clubhouse and course renovations and restructured, all-inclusive membership.

As of August 20, 2015, membership has grown to include 305 Golf members and 25 Young Executive members. The popular Young Executive Membership, available for those under age 45, is nearing capacity.

The Golf Club at South River is owned and operated by the Brick Companies, a century-old management company, which has funded substantial capital improvement projects – something that most member-owned clubs require members to fund through special assessments. Most recently, the Club added a new $1 million practice facility, and allocated another $1.5 million towards golf course improvements. In 2013, a $5 million clubhouse renovation added a state-of-the-art fitness center, pro shop, massage facilities, full-service locker rooms, and a cutting-edge indoor HD Golf Simulator room.

Membership Director Beth Prensky explains: “At a time when many clubs are financially unable to put money back into the club, The Golf Club at South River has continued to update and innovate. Local golfers are certainly recognizing that a membership of this caliber, which also delivers an impressive value, is a rare find.”

Unlike most private clubs, members at The Golf Club at South River are not subject to food and beverage minimums or assessments from renovation projects. In addition, Ms. Prensky explains, the Club’s initiation fee is up to 75 percent refundable, and the all-inclusive dues cover everything from carts to bag storage.

Ms. Prensky also credits a full calendar of golf and social events for helping to create the Club’s dynamic membership lifestyle. She cites upcoming events, such as a junior golf tournament, speed golf, and moonlight golf, as popular summer events.

“Our members join for more than an excellent golf course,” Ms. Prensky notes. “They join to experience the intangible benefits of membership as well—great friendships, camaraderie, and community.”

The Golf Club at South River features an 18-hole golf course and a host of modern amenities, including superb dining, state-of-the-art fitness and locker room facilities, massage services, and an interactive schedule of social events and golf tournaments.

The Club offers many individual and family membership opportunities, each with all-inclusive dues. A limited-availability Prelude Membership allows select new members to experience the Club for up to one year before making the full commitment to join.
