Membership Opens A World Of Opportunities

Membership at The Stirling Club means more than the very best of Las Vegas. While the club is well known for events, entertainment, and amenities, it also includes privileges at more than 60 reciprocal clubs throughout the world. From time to time, The Stirling Club Courtier highlights some of these clubs, providing members with a glimpse at the world that awaits them.

Three Amazing Reciprocal Clubs For Stirling Club Members.

The Royal Automobile Club of Australia in Sydney, Australia.
Founded in 1903 as a motoring organization, it has become one of the country's premier private clubs, set in a beautiful historic building that is centrally located in Sydney, Australia. The club is a short walk from Circular Quay, Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens, and other major attractions.

Among its many events and amenities, the Royal Automobile Club of Australia is known for its historic Harbour Room, which offers stunning views across Sydney Harbour and the Royal Botanic Gardens. This room also serves as the main members' dining area, with an à la carte menu five days a week.

The Balboa Bay Club at Newport Beach, California.
The Mediterranean-style waterfront Balboa Bay Club includes a private membership club and resort (which is public), is a Four Diamond property, and the only waterfront resort in Newport Beach. It combines an illustrious past tied to California's renowned gold coast. It was founded in 1948.

The members-only portion of the club includes two private dining rooms with views of the bay, a private pool, lawn, and beach area bayside. Like many reciprocal clubs, it also features a state-of-the-art private health club, daily activities, and monthly special events. Visiting the club includes access to an amazing spa, open only to members and resort guests.

Genesee Valley Club in Rochester, New York
This year marked a special occasion for the Genesee Valley Club in New York. It is celebrating the 125th anniversary of when it was conceived in the Powers Block, Room 49 at the office of Hobart F. Atkinson (the club’s first president). Today, it is one of the 235 most highly regarded private clubs in the United States.

In addition to a fitness center, pool, and tennis, the Genesee Valley Club provides fine dining for guests inside its elegant Green Porch, historic Red Grill, casual Armstrong Grill, and seasonal Front Club and Armstrong Grill Terraces. The culinary staff at the club has held the Rochester Chapter of the American Culinary Association's 'Chef of the Year' title for two consecutive years.

Protocol At Reciprocal Clubs.

Once you contact a club to ensure availability of reservations, services, or other amenities, Stirling Club members may then contact the The Stirling Club, which will send a letter of introduction to the visiting club. While there may be some limitations and different club rules, all clubs generally accept reciprocal members with open arms while they are visiting that area.

One notable difference: all members should keep in mind that it is customary to pay for club services as they are enjoyed (there are no bill backs). Several Stirling Club members have made friends all over the world by visiting dozens of these clubs.

For additional privileges, current members are encouraged to call for information about Signature Gold memberships. For inquiries and a tour of The Stirling Club, please contact Membership Director Kathleen Gustafson at 702-784-4603.
