How much does an Argyle Country Club membership cost?

On average, the costs to join the Argyle Country Club, as with most country clubs, will greatly depend on the type of membership you apply for, which we will explain the options noted below.  From our research, however, members pay about $2,500 in initiation fees and more than $5,000 a year in dues for a top-tiered membership, but use these as an estimate only as these fees can change.  Always refer to the official website for exact membership dues.

According to a forum thread on DCUrbanMom.com, some members chimed in and stated a junior membership, when you’re under 39 years old, can cost around $400 a month with no initiation dees, while a golf membership can cost 20 to 40 percent more than this.
