How much does a Daniel Island Club membership cost?

On average, the cost of a membership is going to depend on the type of membership you sign up for, as is the case with any country club.  With a few options available, we were able to find estimates for the membership types offered here and included the costs below:

MembershipInitiation FeesMonthly Dues
Socialno initiation fee and is granted to all Daniel Island members$155 to $320
Daniel Island Golf$85,000~ and is only available to those who reside in Daniel Island Park- $690
- Older than 70 years old pay $550
- Non-resident pays $440
- Limited pays $365

NOTE:  Use these prices as an estimate only as they are subject to change and don’t come from the country club itself, only the members who played and shared their prices from the past.  Seeing the club is considered a private, non-equity, developer-owned club, most initiation deposits are fully refundable.   We discuss the membership options in detail below.

In the past, Faux Country News talked about the club offering a Groupon deal which decreased the initiation dues from $78,000 instead of $80,000.

James Schiller, a broker associate for James Schiller Real Estate, offered prices on the membership options, along with the inclusions.  A Daniel Island membership, for example, could cost $85,000, whereas an Invitational membership, available to island property owners residing in neighborhoods other than Daniel Park, would pay $70,000.
