"Charlotte is known to have excellent golf. My Charlotte City Club membership has allowed me to play on some of the best and most exclusive golf courses in the area." - Charles H., Member Since 2011



Among the many benefits of membership at Charlotte City Club, members may enjoy access to several private golf and country clubs in the Charlotte area, including River Run Country Club in Davidson, River Hills Country Club in Lake Wylie, and Gaston Country Club in Gastonia. Take your weekend getaways to the next level with membership reciprocity at clubs in the beach and mountains at Dunes Golf and Beach Club in Myrtle Beach and High Meadows Country Club in Roaring Gap.

While Charlotte City Club is a Member-owned Club and not a ClubCorp property, membership at Charlotte City Club also opens the doors to ClubCorp's global network of 150+ golf clubs. Those who participate in the Signature Gold Program can receive two complimentary rounds of golf per month.

And for the true golf enthusiast, Charlotte City Club has an Affinity Club designed for you. Members of our Golf Club enjoy outings and tournaments at some of the region’s top private golf courses.


"Lobster Night is the best!" - Joanna G., Member Since 2010

The Charlotte City Club arranges a wide variety of social and networking events, bringing members together over shared interests and experiences. The social calendar is thoughtfully organized to reflect the diverse interests of our members with events centering around culture, art, sports, professional enrichments, and, of course, food and drink.

Winemaker's dinners, craft beer dinners, and Panthers buffets before every home game, for instance, showcase the Club's amazing culinary program and help foster new friendships and connections. You'll also find regularly scheduled events designed to bring the entire family together, such as our extravagant holiday celebrations, family night, and magic night dinners.

Beyond our active event calendar, members find joining one of our Affinity Clubs opens up even more possibilities to get involved and enjoy the Club.

Affinity Clubs

"I've found Charlotte City Club to be my office away from my office. It gives me a professional yet inviting place to work and meet clients. The staff is friendly, respectful, and the service is second to none. I would highly recommend for any business professional. " - Chrys K., Member Since 2014

A popular benefit of membership at Charlotte City Club is our Affinity Clubs, or ‘Clubs within our Club,’ which offer opportunities for members to meet regularly to connect over shared interests. Sample fine wines, taste test new brews, smoke cigars and more! All of our Affinity Clubs have an option to join as a single membership or dual membership.

Every Monday after regular season games and select playoff games, former NFL Players (including Super Bowl champions) review and discuss key plays from Sunday games, teach professional football fundamentals/strategy, and share stories from the field and locker room.

Barley and Hops Society

"The Barley and Hops Society is a great way to explore the many kinds of malted beverages produced around the world and learn about the explosion of new styles being produced by the rapidly expanding craft beer movement. Amazingly, we have not repeated a single beer since our founding in January 2008!" - Bill R., Member Since 2006

Casually enjoy beers from around the world with the members of the Barley & Hops Society. This club meets once a month and usually tastes 5 beers at each meeting.
