Senior Members
Senior Members annual dues are waived.  To qualify as a Senior Member one family members must be at least 65 years old as of Feb. 15 and have been a member of BDSRC for at least 20 years. If you qualify for Senior Membership status, please email the Membership Chair at BDSRCmembership@gmail.com.

New Members
Because our club membership is at capacity, new members are invited only when existing members resign.  As resignations allow, we invite new members from a waiting list.  Please read the information below for additional details and instructions in joining the waitlist.

How does the waitlist work? 
Per our club by-laws, neighborhood residents, former members, and legacies (adult children of members) have priority status on the waiting list.  Those with priority status are invited first each year.  A non-resident waitlist is maintained, based solely on the date the waitlist application was submitted. Families from this list are invited after the priorities.

When are new members admitted to the club?
New member invitations are typically extended in the spring of each year.  As members resign, we offer memberships to families on the waitlist beginning with those with priority status. Families from the non-resident waitlist are then offered membership as space allows.

How many new members are accepted each year? 
The number of memberships available varies from year to year, anywhere from 20 - 35. It is based on how many members resign.

How long is your waitlist?
The priority waitlist varies from 15-25 families.  Priority families can typically expect an invitation to join within one or two years. 
The non-resident waitlist varies from 150-200 families. The current average wait for a non-resident is approx. 6 years.

How do I know if I am a resident?
Residents of Barclay Downs must be homeowners (not renters) and must live in the boundaries defined by BDSRC’s bylaws. For details of the boundary area, please refer to the Resident map.

How do I get on the waitlist?
Please complete the Waitlist Application Form.  Once this application is received and processed, you be asked to log on to our billing system and pay the $100 waitlist fee using a credit card.   Your application for our waitlist is NOT complete and your position is NOT final until the payment is completed. 

What happens when I am invited to join? 
Once a membership offer is extended, you will be given a Membership Application to complete.  Your application must include two recommendations from current members.  You do NOT need to complete the Membership Application or get the recommendations until AFTER an offer of membership is extended.

How much does it cost to join?
Once a membership offer is extended, a $3,500 initiation fee is due in addition to $825 first year dues.

How much are the annual dues?
Annual dues are $825.

What happens if I am invited to join but I want to postpone my acceptance? Can I remain on the waitlist?
No.  Once you are invited to join the club, you can either accept or decline the invitation. If you choose to decline for any reason, you will be removed from the waitlist and must reapply if you wish to be considered for membership in future years. You will pay the $100 application fee and be placed at the bottom of the waitlist.

How do I ensure I retain my spot on the waitlist?
You may contact the Membership Chair at BDSRCmembership@gmail.com annually to check your position on the waitlist.  You position will not change throughout the year, because new members are invited in the spring.  The Membership Chair may also contact you periodically to ensure your contact information is still valid and ask if you want to remain on the waitlist.  If there is any change to your contact information, please let us know ASAP.  If we cannot contact you by phone or email, you will be removed from the waitlist and will need to reapply if you wish to be considered for membership in future years.

If you have any additional questions not addressed above, please contact the Membership Chair at BDSRCmembership@gmail.com.
