Wait List

Membership at Nehoiden is currently closed for the Full Member (Wellesley Resident) and Student Member tiers.  The wait list was created to give residents the opportunity to be informed once memberships become available as current Members decline renewal offers in the offseason.  As these positions open up, names are selected chronologically from the waitlist to fill the available slots.

If you are applying as a Full Member (Wellesley Resident) or Student Member, please note that only residential addresses will be accepted for membership.  Business addresses cannot be used to determine eligibility. All memberships are for individuals only, though there are opportunities for Child Limited Memberships within the family. Please put each household name onto the wait list individually. Full Members will be required to pay an Initiation Fee before their first year of membership.

To be considered for the wait list, submit your contact information to Nehoiden Golf Club via the Nehoiden Golf Club Waitlist Form. Contact information should include your name, home address, phone number and email address. Please DO NOT submit your contact information multiple times.
