The Next Iteration of Private Clubs? The Architect’s Nine Launches

The question of growing golf and retaining young players in the game has long been debated. The cost of membership is often a deterrent for younger players, and in turn developers and companies have begun to bundle clubs into a single membership (see McConnell Golf in the Carolinas and ClubCorp across the U.S.). The latest multi-club membership approaches the issue differently by incorporating public courses. It is called The Architect’s Nine.

Billed as a “private club for the public golfer,” The Architect’s Nine is a golf membership that provides access to nine golf courses across the country (see the list below). A membership costs $2,500 per year and members can take guests at 20% off normal green fees.
