Shoals Club Membership

Dear Shoals Club Member:

As a Shoals Club member, you likely appreciate the many ways club access enriches your time on Bald Head Island. With four distinct dining venues, two pools, locker rooms, direct beach access and year-round event programming, the Shoals Club offers an incomparable value to you and your guests. For the first time in 12 years, the Shoals Club is raising the price of a new membership from $12,000 to $15,000, beginning on May 1, 2018.

New property purchasers who are closing May 1-May 10 can lock into the current Shoals Club membership purchase price of $12,000 if they have their application and payment submitted to Membership & Communications Coordinator Lauren Regan in the Shoals Club Office no later than April 30, 2018. The new membership price for properties closing on or after May 11, 2018 will be $15,000.

If you have friends or family who've been considering the purchase of a Shoals Club membership, please encourage them to act prior to the membership price increase in May.

We continue to raise the bar at the Shoals Club to provide the best possible experience for you and your guests. If you have any questions regarding new membership pricing, please feel free to email Lauren Regan or call 910-454-4851. Thank you and we look forward to an outstanding 2018 season at the Shoals Club.

New dining venue

Dear Shoals Club Member,

Here at the Shoals Club, we're busy preparing for an outstanding 2018 season for members and their guests. The Shoals Club will open for the season on March 8. In the meantime, we wanted to share our excitement about a new dining venue we'll be unveiling in the spring-The Verandas at Shoals Club.

Member info updates & Photo ID's

Dear Shoals Club Member,

Thank you for the fabulous year we had at the Shoals Club. We pride ourselves on helping you have a spectacular time at the beach, pool and dining venues. This email serves three purposes:
  • To have you update your membership information (see link to form below);
  • To accumulate photos to be put on new membership cards; and
  • To gather information on your interests in Shoals Club activities.

To maintain an accurate database, we need your help. We have found that your member information may be lacking or out of date. This information is often needed to get in touch with you for lost credit cards, driver’s licenses, jewelry or sunglasses. It is hard to return items if we cannot reach the owner. There are a number of other reasons we need updated information from you, including for billing and for verifying access for your children and other immediate family that are attached to your membership as Annual Members. With that said, please complete the Member Information Update form found online here and send it back as soon as possible, but no later than January 31, 2018, to

In the future, we want to improve security to ensure your membership is protected, preventing nonmembers from slipping through the cracks with invalid, outdated or borrowed cards. We will strive to have pictures on all our members’ cards by the time the summer season starts. The new cards will be waiting for you at the Shoals Club office. Please email us a digital file with a close up facial picture (preferably a .JPG format). These pictures can come from your phone camera directly to our email at, or you can email us any digital photo from your computer. Face position must be front view (no selfies, sunglasses or headwear please).

We strive to make the Shoals Club the most desirable place to spend time on Bald Head Island. In order to accomplish that goal we would like feedback on what activities make your experience here enjoyable. On the bottom of the Member Information Update form, please check the activities that interest you.

We look forward to a great new year of lasting friendships and wonderful experiences enjoyed by all. Our goal is to make your time at the Shoals Club memorable and stress free. We hope you will take the time to email your portrait photos and Member’s Information Update form to You can also mail the Member Information Update form to Shoals Club Admin, P.O. Box 3069, Bald Head Island, NC 28461. If you have any questions, feel free to call Elyse or Lauren at 910-454-4888.
