Membership at Nehoiden is currently closed for the Full Member (Wellesley Resident) tier. The wait list was created to give residents the opportunity to be informed once memberships become available as current Members decline renewal offers in the offseason. As these positions open up, names are selected chronologically from the waitlist to fill the available slots. The current wait for Membership from the wait list is several years, but is subject to change. As of June 2022, the wait time is running between 6-7 years.
If you are applying as a Full Member (Wellesley Resident), please note that only residential addresses will be accepted for membership. Business addresses cannot be used to determine eligibility. All memberships are for individuals only, though there are opportunities for additional family members to obtain their own membership once an individual in the household becomes a member. Please put each household name onto the wait list individually. Full Members will be required to pay an Initiation Fee before their first year of membership.
To be considered for the wait list, submit your contact information to Nehoiden Golf Club via the Nehoiden Golf Club Waitlist Form. Contact information should include your name, home address, phone number and email address. Please DO NOT submit your contact information multiple times. After you submit your form, you will receive a confirmation email. This email confirms that you have been placed in our wait list database in the order that your form was submitted.
Once you are eligible for Membership, you will receive more detailed information from Nehoiden Golf Club, including a preliminary membership application. You will be asked to submit your application and the associated dues and fees at that time for full access to Nehoiden Golf Club, as well as the opportunity to participate in Member events, travel opportunities, clinics, and other related activities.
Periodically, we update those on the Waitlist through email to let you know where you stand. This is the best way to find out your position when it comes to place in line. Or you can email email@example.com to get an estimate of your remaining wait time.
