Location: Palm Beach
While most social clubs in urban hubs have chosen (or been forced) to diversify their member rolls, many clubs near vacation destinations have not. Palm Beach Bath and Tennis Club is one of the oldest, most exclusive clubs in America and to this day it remains 100% WASP. The nearby Palm Beach Country Club has a similar policy, but that club is almost entirely Jewish in membership. It is unclear exactly how much it costs to join these clubs, as substantial charitable contributions and lobbying fellow blue bloods complicates that actual financial commitment. But, in 1995, Donald Trump opened his Mar-a-lago Club, which doesn't discriminate against anyone who can afford the $150,000 initiation fee and $7,000 in annual dues, as a competitor.
