The Old Lyme Country Club is one of the oldest private country clubs in Connecticut.

While membership is by invitation only, we welcome inquiries from those who may be new to the area or are unknown to current members.

How can I visit the Club to see the facilities?
Please call (860) 434-1639 x2 and someone will be glad to make arrangements.
How do I begin the process of joining the club?
Interested candidates must be invited and sponsored by a Club member. A seconding letter is required as well as two additional letters from current members. Candidates must also meet members from the Admissions committee. The Admissions Committee will make every effort to help you with the process.
What if I do not know a Club member?
Call the Club business office at (860) 434-1639 x2 and ask for Rose Savignac to express your interest in the Club. A member of the Admissions Committee will then contact you.
How long does it take to become a member of the Club?
Once your sponsor and seconder submit the required paperwork, the process typically takes about 6-8 weeks. Each candidate’s application is reviewed and references may be checked. You will be asked to attend a “Meet & Greet” where you will meet members of the Admissions Committee and the Board of Governors. A recommendation will then be made to the Board of Governors for a final decision.
Are there any membership restrictions?
It is the policy of the Club to consider each candidate for membership strictly on merit. No distinction, discrimination or restriction is or shall be made on account of a candidate’s religion, sexual orientation, national origin, or race.
