Membership Rates

The Welcome Membership

The Welcome Membership is a wonderful way to try out the Madison Club for a year! Exclusively for first-time members, this value-driven membership offers full benefits of the Club, including dining, special events, reciprocal club use, golfing privileges, and free and reduced room rates for meeting rooms, all for a significant discount.

Each month, members who join under this plan pay $75 in dues and have an additional $75 spending minimum, which can be used on food and beverage purchases in Churchill’s Restaurant and Lounge, or in the Tap Room Bar. This $75 minimum can also be used on special events, such as cooking classes, business seminars, comedy nights, epicurean dinners, happy hours, holiday brunches, and many others!

If you have friends or family interested in joining the Madison Club, now is the time! Starting January 1 through March 31, 2014, your referrals not only get to join with the Welcome Membership promotion, they will also receive a 50% discount on their initiation fee ($125 value), and you will get a $125 dining certificate! A sweet deal to kick off the new year!
