How Much Does the CordeValle Golf Club Cost?

Written by: Staff

The CordeValle Golf Club, located in San Martin, California, is invitation-only golf, social, tennis and executive club.

Deriving its name from the Spanish phrase “el corazón del valle,” which means the “heart of the valley,” this resort is nestled in the valley, surrounded by the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Just a half hour away from San Jose and a few miles west of Highway 101, it is considered as a rare treat by those who had the honor of playing it.

How much does a CordeValle Golf Club membership cost?

The costs, as with any country/golf club, will depend on the type of membership you apply for.  Initiation fees for a corporation are said to be in the $1 million range, while single executive memberships are said to be in the $250,000 range.  Annual dues for a family plan are around $29,000 ($2,400/month), while corporate plans are around $39,000 ($3,250/month).  These fees are estimates which came from third-party sources and cannot be guaranteed.  For more information, refer to the club for exact membership costs.

Membership to the club, however, is by invitation only.  Members will have to apply and complete a sponsorship form, meaning a prospective member needs to be sponsored from a current member/s in good standing, and upon approval, the member will be accepted to the club.  This process is fairly routine among country clubs that are by “invite only.”
