Welcome to Reciprocal Golf, and the rare opportunity to enjoy the FUTURE OF GOLF!

Offering 24/7 concierge service for private club members

Reciprocal Golf was created in 2003 after my request to play a private club was turned down by my head pro. I told him I wanted to play a private club in Oklahoma with my client the following Tuesday. He turned to me and asked, “Pete, do I look like I have time to make a phone call?”  My pro was too busy to accommodate me by calling the club I wanted to play! Two weeks later was born.  Within two years we had closed our membership at 300 members.  Our Weekend Warrior Membership cost our members $385 at that time, and our Business Traveler Membership cost $585.  The Cost of Living has increased tremendously in 15 years, yet our present pricing has only increased $200/year, and members still only pay the present Guest Rate to play each club’s current guest rate!

My goal was to give avid golfers a way to contact their own head golf professional and request to play any private golf club in the country.  I wanted to keep the annual costs to each new member under $50 per month for our services.  At the same time I wanted to make as many private clubs available to our members as possible.  I am proud to say that I have accomplished my goal effective November 1, 2018.

Welcome to Reciprocal Golf.  The first club membership you will experience will be Shasta Golf Club, ( our affiliate private golf club that turned private in 2005.   Its non-residential membership is priced below $600 annually to join.  It qualifies you to play any private golf club in the USA that reciprocates when there is availability at their club.

Our procedures are simple. First, just fill out the application for the Membership you wish to join. You will be emailed our approval in less than 24 hours along with our procedures!  We are as close as your cell phone.
