Re: Generic ER: *Any takers?

This is mostly for Jarhead as I missed his question about
my former "country club life".

It is true I no longer play golf and when I did I never belonged to a country club.
Since giving up the game (1975) I have belonged to
three (3) different private country clubs, all in the rural midwest (none at present). We had a "social" membership, which as the name implies allowed us all
the perks and bennies except for the golf (pool, tennus, special events, dining/bar, etc.). And, there is no doubt it was a better class of people than you would normally find at the public courses (speaking generally here).
I don't recall the exact numbers, but the cost was very
minimal if you normally did any eating out and socializing at all.
If I was sufficiently motivated, I'll bet I could work in into our meager budget, even today.
