Members in good standing of Sangamo Club are encouraged to invite and sponsor potential members. Please contact the Director of Member Services for detailed membership information including the current dues structure.
Once a membership application is submitted, it is presented to the Board of Directors for approval before the nominee's name is posted for five business days in the lobby of the clubhouse. If no objection is received, the nominee is informed of his/her acceptance as a member. It takes approximately two weeks from the time an application is received until the new member is welcomed to the Club.
There are several different categories of membership for consideration:
Resident: An applicant of good character, age 35 or above, whose permanent address, except for temporary absences, is within 50 miles of Springfield.
