How Much Does It Cost to Play Sedgefield Country Club, Home of the PGA Tour Wyndham Championship?
Established in 1926, Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, has maintained a longstanding relationship with the PGA Tour.
One of the early sites of the Wyndham Championship, which began in 1938 as the Greater Greensboro Open, Sedgefield first hosted what’s now the oldest annual stop on the PGA Tour in 1946 and was the exclusive venue of the tourney from 1961 to 1976.
Nearby Forest Oaks Country Club took over for the next three decades, but the Wyndham returned to Sedgefield in 2008 and has been contested there ever since.
Several of golf’s all-time greats took titles at Sedgefield back in the day, including Sam Snead, Billy Casper, Gary Player, Chi-Chi Rodriguez, and Tom Weiskopf. And since the Wyndham returned, major champions Webb Simpson, Sergio Garcia, Patrick Reed, Davis Love III, and Henrik Stenson have hoisted the winner’s trophy.
Unfortunately for the general public, Sedgefield is a private club. So how much would it set you back for membership?
How much does it cost to become a member of Sedgefield Country Club, home of the PGA Tour Wyndham Championship?
Sedgefield Country Club is one of just two stops on the PGA Tour to feature a Donald Ross-designed course, the other being Detroit Golf Club. It underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2007 and was purchased in 2011 by McConnell Golf, which owns 13 other golf properties in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
Sedgefield currently offers three types of golf membership, Full, Young Executive, and Junior. The Full Golf membership includes access to other club amenities, such as the pool, tennis courts, social activities, and dining.
As it typically goes with private clubs, varying membership levels mean varying costs. Initiation fees range from $2,501 to $10,000, while annual dues range from $5,001 to $10,000. But the beautiful part of membership at Sedgefield is that you also receive reciprocal access to all 14 McConnell Golf properties, which is nice.
