Country Club Law

For nearly 30 years, various members of our firm have worked with country club general managers, boards of directors, controllers and human resource managers to solve the myriad of legal and administrative issues these organizations face.

We have extensive experience with:

  • Club bylaws and governance;
  • Membership classifications;
  • Admissions;
  • Club rules;
  • Member discipline;
  • And nonprofit corporate issues.

Additionally, the attorneys at Patton & Sullivan have knowledge and experience in country club assessment planning and implementation, financing of improvements, personnel matters, voting issues and the multitude of real property issues confronting private clubs; such as, ownership, easement, land use, nuisance, trespass, environmental problems and claims relating to alleged dangerous conditions.  Our firm has advised clubs in a broad spectrum of litigation scenarios, including reduction and avoidance of litigation risks.  At the same time, we have actively litigated such issues where the risk cannot be avoided.

Patton & Sullivan LLP has developed the unique expertise and legal knowledge to deal with the specialized area of country club law.
