For Friends of Escondido Golf & Lake Club

A special invitation from the heart of the Texas Hill Country and the shores of Lake LBJ.

The membership at Escondido is pleased and excited to announce that our Club and luxury home community, is now Member owned. Over the past nine years, we’ve grown to become the state’s premier lakeside golf preserve and we are committed to enhancing the Escondido experience even more. Equity memberships tied to property ownership are available.

Additionally, we are now offering a limited number of Non-equity, callable, memberships in a private sale through existing Members. These memberships do not require property ownership, yet offer many of the amenities and services for which Escondido is known. The monthly Club dues is offered at a special rate for the first three years of Club membership.
