I have never been a CC member but can tell you that CC initiation fee & membership cost have come down quite a bit here in Northern CA. As mentioned by a few others, a family membership, especially a large one, can get their money's worth. Monthly fees I've heard were in $500 - $1000 range. But I understand that it is still tough to get your full initiation fee back when you have to sell it. I prefer a membership without initiation fee, which rules out most CCs.
