Seven Oaks Country Club marketing director, Chris Juba, has a tough task on his hands these days. One of his responsibilities is to oversee the growth of membership at the club. Country clubs and golf courses took sizable hit just a decade ago. But through Juba’s efforts, Seven Oaks has experienced a membership boom in the last few years.
Seven Oaks now boasts over 600 families who are members in various categories. One of the reasons behind this is Juba’s creativity when it comes to membership levels and options. Another reason is that Seven Oaks offers affordable options for those looking to become a member at a first-class club without breaking the bank.
Seven Oaks has six different membership categories to choose from. Each category is tailor-made for the person or family looking for an affordable value in a country club membership. I can attest, as a member, Seven Oaks has great facilities and first-class amenities for the members. Let’s look at each membership category a little closer and which one might be most appealing to you.
The Recreational Membership
The Recreational Membership is the best membership for families who mainly want to take advantage of the swimming pool and social events the club offers. Recreational members also have unlimited use of the tennis courts, driving range, and fitness center. However, recreational members are permitted to play one round of golf per month, but must pay for green and cart fees.
All new recreational members are given a certificate for Sunday brunch for two, a complimentary golf and tennis lesson and evaluation, a complimentary golf shirt from the pro shop, a $50 grille room dining certificate, and a special savings book with discounts, coupons, and other offers.
The Intermediate & Full Golf Memberships
The Intermediate Golf Membership is afforded to members who are 21 to 40 years old and includes full golf privileges. This is also the membership category I am in. It is essentially the same as Full Golf membership, but with lower monthly dues based on one’s age. The Intermediate category is a great option for the young, avid golfer who is tired of the same public courses, and wants more of a test.
The Full Golf (for those over the age of 40) and Intermediate both share the same benefits and privileges. They include unlimited golf for the primary member (excluding the cart fees), unlimited swimming and tennis for primary member and family, unlimited usage of the fitness center, unlimited use of dining facilities, the option to add a spouse or children golf privileges for a nominal fee, no room rental fee for special events, annual bag storage and club cleaning, annual locker room privileges, and unlimited driving range privileges for the primary member and family.
The Family Membership
The Family membership is the most inclusive of all of the membership categories at Seven Oaks. It offers everything the Full Golf membership does, but it includes your entire family. The main difference is that this membership includes unlimited golf, including cart fees, for the entire family listed on the membership. This is perfect for a family of golfers who want to test their game on a challenging course, day in and day out.
National, Corporate, and Dining Memberships
If you live over an hour away, and still want to be a member at Seven Oaks, the club has a National Golf membership. The National membership offers all of the benefits that Full Golf and Intermediate members enjoy.
If your company wants a membership to entertain clients and guests, the club has a Corporate membership category that’s customizable to suit the needs of your business. One nice feature of the Corporate membership is that that the member can send out corporate guests without being accompanied by the member up to 40 times throughout the season. There is also no annual food minimum for Corporate members.
Lastly, the Clubhouse membership is for families who only want to dine here. This membership allows for unlimited use of dining facilities and the fitness center.
As a current Intermediate member, I can say that Seven Oaks delivers a great bang for your buck. The staff treats the members with the utmost respect, hospitality, and professionalism that you come to expect from a country club. Head pro Willie Yacknow and locker room manager Keith Hohenshel are excellent in accommodating the needs of the members, and making sure the members are well-taken care of.
The golf committee has organized a slate of events spanning from April to October for the members to enjoy. One recent event that I played in, the Four Man Championship, was one of the best times I’ve ever had on a golf course. And once we finished, we were treated to a delicious spread of soups and sandwiches prepared by Chef Greg Powell and his team.
In seeking to bolster its membership, Chris Juba has taken to social media, and in particular, Facebook, to promote new and exciting membership offers. Seven Oaks frequently runs membership deals that are almost too good to pass up. I personally know several members that have taken advantage of these offers. In addition, all new members receive a host of added perks, from golf shirts to golf guest passes, and more.
