I don't belong to one, but I often feel I need to be apologetic that I'm the first in my family to graduate from college, worked hard and can afford a few nice things now. My year end bonus had a full 50% deducted for taxes, but I'm told I don't pay enough. I totally get why private clubs exist.
I was in one here (one of the oldest clubs in the nation) for several years before I got out.

I began to notice a smaller and smaller percentage of members who actually had a boat, or cared anything about boating. The growing sentiment seemed to be that if they just get rid of all of the boaters and boating facilities, the "yacht" club would be a lot better off.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
