Each membership class has its own privileges and obligations. These privileges and obligations are defined in the membership pricing details and in the Victoria Club’s By-laws (Article II: enacted 8/2022 by the Board of Directors). All fees charged by Victoria Club are described below.
Program Details and Fees
Below is an explanation of the fees that members may be charged as determined by the Board of Directors. The Club has a limited number of memberships available (1100); there may occur a time that certain memberships may be full. Fees are subject to change per approval by the Board of Directors; please note that all members in all membership classes are charged the following fees unless otherwise noted in the details below:
Membership Application Fee: All New Membership Applicants will be billed a fee of $125.00. This will be assessed with the initial amount due during orientation.
Dues: Dues are billed monthly in advance on or around the last day of the prior month. The amount will vary contingent on the type of membership.

Members with a monthly minimum are billed for any unused portion of their minimum at the end of the month. Members with an annual minimum are billed for any unused minimum amounts on their annual anniversary.
Monthly Replacement Fee: All members, except Golf Preview, share in the cost for the repair or replacement of items in shared areas. Equity members will have $40.00 added each month. All Non-Equity members (Junior Executive, Dining, Tennis, and Social,) will have $15.00 added to their statement. None of the Monthly Replacement funds charged to Non-Equity members are used for capital improvements. Updates to the membership are sent out via email with the schedule for repair or replacement.
Operation Fee: Victoria Club operates in the top 85th percentile for operational efficiency, according to Benchmark operations. Operation Fees offset costs, such as minimum wage, tax increases, etc. that may exceed the income from the collection of membership dues. In lieu of an increase of the monthly membership dues, an operation fee is charged to each member to cover the anticipated operation budget shortfall (excludes Golf Preview and Tennis Members).
Membership Conversion Fee: The conversion fee is a non-refundable fee charged to all members who move down in membership class. It is added to the member’s statement in the month the change becomes effective. The fee for Equity Members is $1,000.00.

Capital Assessments: The Board may levy assessments up to $1,000.00 per Equity membership within a calendar year without prior authorization of the Equity members. Assessments are for capital improvements and may only be charged to Equity members, including those in the Equity at Modified Dues membership.
