Application Process


The application process is quite simple. The application can be completed online, and fees need not be submitted with the application. A member Proposer and a member Endorser are required to recommend your membership. In the event you do not know members who can fill these roles, we will be happy to assist. Boat ownership is not a requirement to be considered for membership although boating involvement is valued.

Applications are reviewed by our Membership Committee, and presented to our Board of Directors for consideration of acceptance and vote.

Please see the following web pages for additional information: New Membership Fees and Dues, and Macatawa Bay Yacht Club Application. If you would like a tour of the club facilities, please call (616) 335-5815. Also should you have questions concerning membership, please feel free to contact Kim Rowan at

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
