Top 5 Best Private Golf Courses In America

We all would love to take a break from the hectic pace of life and find time to relax on the golf course, which is why many people embrace the beautiful game of golf and even some invest in memberships to private golf courses. Private golf courses are only available to their members and other guests with an invitation. 

This means that the best golf courses in America can provide more personalized services and amenities, making playing on these courses more enjoyable. Here are some of the best private golf courses in America:

1. Augusta National Golf Club, Georgia

Home to the legendary PGA major tournament The Masters, is the Augusta National Golf Club. This club was voted the top golf club in the U.S., comprising 18 golf courses designed by Dr. Alister MacKenzie and champion golfer Bobby Jones. Members of Augusta's club must meet strict criteria. The initiation fee ranges from $250,000 to $500,000. This private club is considered one of the most prestigious and exclusive in the United States.

2. Pine Valley Golf Club, New Jersey

Pine Valley Golf Club, a private club exclusively for men in New Jersey, is one of the best in the world. The club board selects potential members through invitations. Along with excellent golf courses, the Pine Valley Golf Club also offers high-end facilities only available to members. With all this, plus a chance to meet and play with famous personalities, the $500,000 initiation fee is well worth it.

3. Bear's Club, Florida

Jack Nicklaus founded and built Bear's Club in Jupiter, Florida, in 1999. It is an exclusive golf club with amazing facilities and real estate; it includes 369 acres of terrain designed for world-class golf. There is an initiation fee of between $100,000 and $160,000, but getting into the club is nearly impossible. The waitlist is long, and only high-profile individuals are considered for membership.

4. Congressional Country Club, Maryland

In addition to its rich history of including American presidents as its members, the club was created originally so that members of Congress could meet people in business. As of today, there is a waiting list of ten years and an initiation fee of $120,000.

5. Black Sheep Golf Club, Illinois

Located outside Chicago, Illinois, Black Sheep Golf Club offers a great golf course. The owner of this 27-hole David Esler-designed golf course, Vince Solano, has successfully developed a golf course with an out-in-the-boondocks feel yet is still near enough to the city to provide a truly remarkable experience.
