    Happy Holidays from your friends at VGM Club. As we come to the end of 2018, we want to look back and appreciate all of the success we have accomplished together, and hope to continue for years to come.

With the help of these new members, the VGM Club community projects $20 million in savings and rebates for our members this year. Thanks again

    Over the last three months, VGM Club has been working on updating our data to create a better experience for our members. The more we know about your club, the better we can communicate with you. Every VGM Club associate updated information about more than 100 clubs to reflect their most up-to-date amenities and opportunities. This project is part of a concerted effort to send our members relevant solutions. If your club does not have a pool, why do you want an email that includes pool solutions?
