Wait List

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. 

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 join 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. Soon after you submit your form, you will receive an email from our golf management system Chronogolf asking you to activate your account. This email confirms that you have been placed in our wait list database in the order that your form was submitted, and may come days or weeks after you submit your waitlist form. You can activate your account if you choose, or wait until you get the invitation for Full Membership to Nehoiden.  

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.   

Annually 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.  


Leave of Absence

Any member in good standing may request from the Club a Medical Leave of Absence (MLOA). The request for a MLOA must be made in writing to the Nehoiden Golf Club at Wellesley College Operations Team at Inquiries related to MLOA can be made to Susan Chapski during regular Golf Office business hours, or by calling 781-283-3398.

Guest Policy

We welcome guests who want to experience Nehoiden Golf Club alongside our NGC members. We have updated our guest policy to allow all of our members to maximize the benefits of their membership, and encourage play whenever possible.

  • Members may reserve up to 3 guests as part of their reservation.
  • Guest name(s) with unique email must be submitted at the time of the reservation. Guests will be recorded in the Member Portal for future bookings. As an alternative, guest information will be collected at the first tee and may be required to confirm with identification. This will enable you to expedite the addition of your guest to future reservations. While we will not limit the amount of times a guest can play at this time, we want to better track who is joining us at the club for guest play as we do for our member play.
  • Cancellations can be made up to 4 hours before your tee time. After that time your reservation cannot be changed. No shows will be charged in full to the Member Account. Cancellations by the club due to frost delays, inclement weather, etc. will not be charged to the Member Account.   
  • Payments can be made by credit card at the first tee, or will be charged to the Member’s account. You can also charge directly to a credit card saved on file at the first tee.
  • Members must stay with their guests while on the course at all times.
  • Guests must adhere to the same Code of Conduct as members. Any guest in violation could result in action against the associated member.  

Please see our Booking a Guest on Chronogolf Guide for instructions on how to book your guest through the Member Portal.

Men's Group

The Men's Group is organized to make golf at Nehoiden more fun for all members. Our informal early morning weekend group play is a great way to meet and play with golfers of all ages and abilities. We also run eleven tournaments throughout the summer that are fun and challenging for golfers of all abilities.

To join the Men’s Group, please fill out this Membership Form. For more information on the Men's Group, contact Fred Shultz at You can also visit the NGC Men's Group website for the latest on events, the complete list of Club Tournaments, and more.



Women's Group

PLEASE JOIN US! We are a friendly and fun group of Nehoiden ladies (of all different abilities) who play in a casual format on Tuesday mornings and alternating Wednesday afternoons. As we start the new season, we will not be able to gather socially in groups on Nehoiden property before or after play, no shotgun starts are currently planned and on-premises consumption of food or drink is not allowed. For now, these Tuesdays and Wednesdays will be structured as informal “drop in” events - first come, first served. We will not sign up players for a particular tee time in advance. If you want to play during these times, just show up at the first tee between 8:15-8:30 AM on Tuesdays or 4:15-4:30 PM on Wednesdays. Foursomes will be formed on-the-spot and will tee off roughly in the order of arrival. (If you prefer to form your own foursome, continue to utilize the Chronogolf sign up system to reserve tee times.)

At this point,  we will not require a formal membership application and payment of an upfront fee for expenses we may or may not incur. Rather, if we can organize some events like shotguns (Solheim Cup, Scrambles, etc) that involve refreshments, prizes etc. we can charge a small fee to participants to defray expenses. We are still planning to conduct the 9-hole and 18-hole Club Championships as we did last year in August and September.

Notices about upcoming women’s activities will be posted on the bulletin board in the covered space near the first tee.

Please let the Chair of the group Mary Hayes <> know your thoughts and suggestions about these plans. We will do our best to offer opportunities for women to meet each other and enjoy golf at Nehoiden in 2021. Feel free to contact Mary with any additional questions you may have related to the Women's Group. You can access the 2021 Nehoiden Womens Golf Association Spring Announcement for more details.
