If you would like to enjoy some of the most elite and private golf atmosphere in the Seattle, Washington area one of the clubs you may find is Overlake Golf & Country Club. As with almost all clubs in the Seattle area, the initiation fee comes with a stock purchase as well. It is not as easy as writing a check to the club and being done with it. In Seattle, club members set the price of the initiation based on supply and demand. In 2021 and 2022, there is a very strong demand for private golf and country club memberships. The last four memberships at Overlake Golf & Country Club that were sold (as of November 2021) were $128,000, $136,000, $145,000 and $155,000.
As you can see, the price to get into this club has gone up quite a bit. Think of it like buying stock in a company like Apple or Amazon. If you want to buy at $200 a share and no one is willing to see, you are going to have to pay more until you find a seller willing to give it up for that price. If you expect to get into Overlake Golf & Country Club expect to pay around $160,000 or more.
