Mandatory Equity Membership is associated with golf course communities requiring homeowners to purchase a club membership when they buy a home. This membership entitles them to use the facilities and own a portion of the golf club.




There is a mandatory equity membership fee and at times, an initiation fee; these can range anywhere from $5000.00 to $250,000.00, dependent upon exclusivity. Some clubs separate the fee into an amount that represents the refundable equity interest and one that represents a contribution to capital that is not refundable.
