Feature: Memberships of Privilege

Since its earliest incarnations on the links and shores of the British Isles, the country club has served as both community and venue, a gathering place to share a common interest and refine one’s knowledge of, and skills in, the chosen pursuit.

Modern versions of the country club incorporate an emphasis on family, providing an ideal setting in which to transfer those teachings and talents from one generation to the next. No one club, however, spans the pastimes of a given individual, much less an entire household. The finest examples focus on, and excel at accommodating, a specific activity—from golfing to yachting, foxhunting to winemaking. It follows that, for those who place a priority on their leisure pursuits, the proper portfolio of private club memberships represents the ultimate commitment to family, friends, and unabashed fun.
