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 $60.00 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 ($60 per month) is in place to assist the Club with its current loan obligations and lease payments (we average about $200,000 in golf course equipment leases at any given time).  The Club does not assess the membership each time a major project is undertaken.  Projects are paid for in cash or via bank note and only if the club can afford the debt service, which is covered by the monthly capital fee. 

The Club is fortunate in that many of its physical facilities are relatively new by commercial standards. After a devastating fire in 1994, BCC rebuilt its current clubhouse and in 1998, the pool house was rebuilt. A summary of major improvements ($100,000 or more) is included below:

2005 - the banquet buidling and golf cart storage barn was built. ($400,000)
2009 - the upper tennis courts dug out, drainage added, and then new asphalt cap was put in place. ($100,000)
2011 - a 1000 square foot casual and family dining room addition was added to the clubhouse. ($125,000) 
2012 - a major renovation of the pool occurred, creating a 'zero' entry or beach style entry and replacing all of the decking around the pool. New poolside furniture was purchased as well. ($250,000)
2013/14 - The golf course undewent renovations to all 18 holes inlcuding reshaping greens and bunkers. The practice range was completely redesigned and a short game area added. ($900,000)
2014 - a 2500 sq ft desk and 5000 sq ft ceremony area next to the banquet building was added. ($100,000) 
2015 - Interior renovations began at the clubhouse which included new carpeting, paint and wall coverings. ($100,000)
2016 - 5 miles of golf course cart paths were repaved ($275,000)
2017 - Major drainage improvements (including more than 50,000ft of underground pipe) were made to the golf course ($125,000)
in process  - 2019 - Clubhouse grill room, grill furniture, and bar renovation ($125,000)
in process - 2019 - All parking lots (pool, tennis, banquet, and clubhouse) are being re-paved ($165,000)


In addition to the projects above, we spend between $50,000 and $75,000 each year in smaller projects to help the Club 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. The Club's books are audited each year and copies of audited financial statements are available. Our independent auditor, at the most recent 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, a lovely indoor meal in our Grille Room, a more formal dining experience in our Dogwood Room, or a 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. The restaurant is not open for meals service on Mondays, but hot dogs, chips, and cold beverages are made available from 10:30 a.m. until dark in the Grille.

Both the lunch and dinner menus offer extensive selections. The Grille menu is available for both lunch and dinner and features selections such as an oven roasted turkey wrap or grilled reuben melt, specialty burgers as well as appitizers like prosciutto wrapped shrimp and loaded potato wedges. The dinner menu is comprised of signature entrees in addition to chef inspired weekly specials. We also serve breakfast on weekends and brunch on Sundays. 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, hot dogs, burgers, and ice cream, as well as wraps, salads, and sandwiches. We also offer healthy side items including carrots, celery sticks, applesauce, and fresh fruit.

What family activities does the Club offer?


The Club has always been an extraordinary place for our members, but it is also an exceptional place for their children. From toddlers to young adults, we are committed to providing well-rounded and memorable experiences for even our youngest members. Our seasonal youth newsletter, Blast, offers a glimpse of all there is to do!

We offer a variety of about 10 different camps throughout the summer months including Mini-Camps, Junior Camps, and All Star Camps which include activities such as tennis, golf, aquatics, arts, cooking, free play, and more. Kid’s Club, Cub Care, and KidZone are programs designed to meet the needs of our members whose children are age walking through 12 years of age needing care for a few hours in order to enjoy the Club’s many facilities.

Our full-time youth and recreation director makes sure that there is no end to the activities we provide, including our Family Nights, Kid’s Pool Parties, Pizza and Movie Nights, Etiquette Classes, Cooking Clinics, American Red Cross Lifeguard and Babysitter Training Courses, Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Party, Dive-In Movies, and Brunch with Santa. No matter what time of year, there is always something to do at Blacksburg Country Club!

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 80 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 as well as play time in golf simulator room located in the clubhouse. 

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.
