What does it cost to be a member?

Blacksburg Country Club offers eight different classes of memberships, each with a different cost. Regardless of the type, membership in Blacksburg Country Club requires payment of an initiation fee, which includes ownership of five shares of stock. The initiation fee ranges between $500.00 and $1500.00 depending upon the membership category. Membership levels are listed below. Each membership type, except non-resident, requires a $58.00 per month capital payment. Each membership type, except non-resident and associate members, have a $30.00 per month food minimum. More information about our different membership catigories can be found here, and our annual dues and fees are available below. 

Why is there a capital fee?

While the Club has many assets, it needs to continually improve. The capital fee ($58 per month) is in place to assist the Club with its current debt and loan obligations.

The Club is fortunate in that many of its physical facilities are relatively new. After a devastating fire in 1994, BCC rebuilt its current clubhouse. In 1998, the pool house was rebuilt. Golf course bunkers were redone and pool heaters purchased in 2000. A clubhouse deck was built in 2001. Parking lots were paved, a maintenance building built and the pool was re-plastered in 2002. More pool renovations, including a pavilion and tube slide, and golf course tee additions were completed in 2003. In 2004, a new cart barn and 5,000 square foot banquet facility was built, the grille room was renovated, and the pool received a new fence around the wading pool and a second tube slide and major drainage work was begun on the golf course. In 2006, a major upgrade occurred to the Club's computerized golf course irrigation control system. In 2008, the children's playground was replaced, a youth activity room added to the pool and tennis building, and our 8,000 square foot pool deck was resurfaced. In 2009, the upper tennis courts we rebuilt and the clubhouse deck extended. In 2010, a poolside basketball court was built and a new outdoor patio was built next to the clubhouse. In 2011, a 1000 square foot casual and family dining room will open along with a splash pad at the pool. The pool underwent a massive renovation in time for the 2012 pool season that included creating a 'zero' entry or beach style entry and replacing all of the decking around the pool. New poolside furniture was purchased as well.

2013 and 2014 brought a number of capital improvements to Blacksburg Country Club. The golf course undewent renovations to all 18 holes inlcuding reshaping greens and bunkers. The practice range was completely redesigned in the fall of 2013 as well. Work was completed in late winter 2014. Also added in 2014 was a brand new deck off of the Club's banquet hall. This deck connects to the redesigned grassy area that serves as a ceremony location for many of BCC's weddings. 

In 2015, the Clubhouse underwent renovations to improve the look of the main hallway and golf shop as well as the beginnings of redesigning each of the Club's dining venues. Future plans for 2016 include finishing some of the projects in the main clubhouse as well as the construction of a new member bar and expanding parts of the kitchen.

Each year, between $50,000 and $75,000 in additional projects are undertaken. This helps the Club to make necessary changes to provide added value and service to our members and guests.


Many other local clubs are struggling, is Blacksburg Country Club financially healthy?

The Board of Directors maintains solid fiscal stewardship of the Club. The Club budgets on a break-even basis each year, making adjustments as necessary if anticipated revenues are not realized. Typically, however, we generate a small profit. Recently, the Club refinanced its debt at a very attractive rate to allow us to accelerate our principal payments and reduce debt more quickly. The Club's books are audited each year and copies of audited financial statements are available. Our auditor, at the 2015 Annual Stockholders' Meeting, stated that the Club is in outstanding financial position.

What does the required five shares of stock cost? 


The par value for stock is $250.00, or $50.00 per share. As an added benefit, stock is included in the price of your initiation fee. Should you end your membership with the Club, you will be able to sell your shares to future members or possibly back to the Club.

Is there a food minimum?

Yes, there is $30.00 a month food minimum, which counts towards any food or beverages purchased within Club facilities (both the dining room and pool snack bar). The exception to this is alcoholic purchases, which do not count toward the minimum.

If you are regularly using the Club, the minimum should be easy to meet each month. The Club has a number of functions such as Friday night buffets, Sunday brunches, and special events to use your minimum. If you do not meet the requirement, you will be billed the difference on your next bill. 

What is there to eat at the Club, and when is food and beverage available?


The Club has a number of dining spaces inside our clubhouse available to members. Whether it is casual dining on our outdoor patio which seats 60, a lovely indoor meal in our Grille Room, a more formal dining experience in our Dogwood Room, or a more family friendly experience in our Casual and Family Dining Romm, we have space that will meet all of our members' needs. While the hours of operation vary from season to season, the restaurant areas are generally open Tuesday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and Saturday from 7:30 am until 9:00 p.m. and Sunday 7:30 am until 8:00 pm.

Both the lunch and dinner menus offer extensive selections. The Grille menu is available for both lunch and dinner and features selections such as a crab cake sandwich or grilled reuben melt, southern chicken BLT wrap as well as appitizers like coconut panko shrimp and build your own flatbreak.

The Club is also fully licensed to offer a full bar with beer, wine, and mixed drinks.

The aquatics operation also has a Poolside Grille. Poolside Grille is open (seasonally) everyday 10:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. The Poolside Grille offers quick items such as finger foods, salads, hot dogs, burgers, ice cream, and snow cones as well as wraps, salads, and sandwiches. We also offer healthy side items including carrots, celery sticks, applesauce, and fruit cups.

What family activities does the Club offer?

What type of instruction is there for children?


Instruction is available in golf, tennis, and aquatics. Our professional staff members are available for all your instruction needs. From an individual lesson to a group clinic, our staff is prepared to help members of all ages.

Golf instruction begins with SNAG clinics, designed for those Starting New At Golf. Young golfers learn the fundamentals of the golf swing while having fun and creating muscle memory. Our junior golf program is a great way for children to get started. With more than 50 active junior golfers, our program is arguably the strongest in southwest Virginia. Junior golfers at BCC participate in one of two golf leagues, the Blue Ridge Junior Golf Tour or the more competitive Roanoke Valley Junior Golf Tour. Participants have the opportunity to play more than 15 different golf courses in the region and compete against others in their age category. Family golf outings are also a favorite of many families at the Club. During winter months the Club also offers indoor instruction made available in our indoor golf nets, located at the pool house.

Tennis instruction is also available for members of all ages and playing levels. Year-round weekly clinics help the youngest to most experienced players up their game. Our annual Junior vs. Adult challenge is a family favorite and members are able to escape the stress of everyday life at monthly after hours tennis socials.

Private, semi-private and group swim lessons are made available for both youth and adults during the season. The Club sponsors a junior swim team, the Baracudas, who participate and compete in various local meets. The pool often becomes a familiar daily gathering for member families where daily leisure and cherished family time come together.
