About Aberdeen, Boynton Beach
Aberdeen is a Community (mandatory) membership residential country club. Joining Aberdeen requires a membership application fee, as well as, the purchase of an equity or payment of an initiation fee.
Each year a member may select the dues category that they wish from the ones that they qualify for based upon their level of equity. This choice is for the entire Club fiscal year. They may upgrade during the year, but may not downgrade till the next Club fiscal year. Below are links to the various membership categories and the related dues.
Before buying into a Membership Equity property it is important that you understand what will be required financially. Having an Equity Membership gives the member the right to use the club’s facilities, whereas "non-members" will not have these rights.

If an Equity member elects to upgrade to a higher Equity class, any previous payment of an Initiation fee or Membership Application fee will not be applied to the Equity purchase.
What does it mean to have an Equity Membership?
Fewer members mean more availability of playing times. Some public golf courses require that you reserve a tee time in advance, and the time you desire might not be available. Many equity clubs do not require that you reserve a starting time, but even if they do, the fewer number of players make desirable starting times more available. The condition of an equity golf course is generally much better than that of most public courses, because there is more money available for maintenance and because fewer players put less wear and tear on the course. For the same reason, the facilities and food might be of much higher quality than those offered at a public course.
