Kongoola is a family-based club owned and run by its 41 members who all hold an equal equity share. We pride ourselves on a friendly culture that is maintained by all members being referred by another member.
Members are offered a priority booking period ahead of their guests and the public
Members, their preferred guest (usually spouse or partner), and children enjoy member rates to stay at the lodge. Members have their own ski locker and storage locker under the lodge
Members own and maintain the lodge; so take pride in it and the club’s family, social, inclusive culture. A committee governs the club; all members have the opportunity and are strongly encouraged to serve on the committee
Members have a say in how the lodge is managed, maintained, and improved
Memberships can only be bought and sold via the club. All prospective members must be nominated by an existing member, and then interviewed by committee members to ensure Kongoola is the right fit for both parties
Members & their guests can use the lodge year-round subject to bed availability & summer maintenance. In summer there is a minimum spend to cover running costs.
Interested In Becoming A Member?
The cost of joining Kongoola is approximately $10,000
Please note a Kongoola membership is held by one person only and cannot be held by a couple, family, or syndicate
If you are interested in seeking membership, the best way forward is to reach out to a member while you are staying at the club – so you can have a discussion while you are on the mountain and in the Lodge
Full details of up-front and ongoing costs can be explained if you email the Club Secretary.
What Being A Member Involves
A membership fee and an initial one-off joining fee are upfront costs, which total around $10000. The membership fee is repayable if you resign from the club. Subscription and accommodation booking levy costs also apply annually. The levy is a credit towards bookings of the member or their guests made to encourage active usage of the lodge
All members are required to complete a work party/summer maintenance each year. This is generally two days per member, per year, but may vary depending on maintenance/building requirements. If a member can’t attend a typical two-day work party they can pay a fee in lieu of attendance.
When staying at the lodge, members are expected to make all guests welcome
Members are expected to set an appropriate standard of behaviour, including completing allocated cleaning duties and other tasks as required.
Members must follow club rules at all times, including booking all accommodation via the Kongoola Online Booking System (KOBS).
