Legacy Program
Second and third generation members represent one of the little things that make Wakonda unique among its peers. Our Legacy Program reinforces a positive attribute of our Club by allowing lineal relatives as well as siblings of members to join at 50% of the prevailing joining fee at the time of joining. 
 
 
Upgrade Program
Social and Dining members in good standing can upgrade their category after three years of membership. Please contact the Membership Director for applicable upgrade fees.
 
 
Member Renewal Program
This program offers a wonderful opportunity to individuals who were loyal members in the past and are interested in returning to Wakonda Club.  If a past member is eligible, he/she may qualify to have the current joining fee waived. All applicants must meet specific qualifications and are subject to approval by the Board of Directors.  Please contact the Membership Director to learn the details of The Member Renewal Program.
 
 
Conditional Refund Policy
If a member finds they have to relocate outside of a 100 mile radius of the
Club within the first three years of membership, the Club will reimburse 80% of the joining fee paid in the first year, 60% of the joining fee paid in the second year and 20% of the joining fee paid in the third year.

I refer my friends to Wakonda Club because I’m confident from their initial contact with the Club’s management and staff, through the engaging, thorough and fun orientation process, to their first experience as a new member, they’ll be treated with warmth, respect and professionalism.

I refer my friends to Wakonda becuase I love the Club. The attention for all the events I have had have been above and beyond any others that I do in the city. The staff are the very best. It's always a pleasure to be in the dining room for either lunch or dinner and the food is without a doubt the best in the city of Des Moines. Always a pleasure to be at the Club.

Wakonda has been the setting for some of our favorite family memories -- whether playing golf with the kids, enjoying dinner out or celebrating holiday events, we love coming to Wakonda all year long.  It is the wonderful staff that makes Wakonda special -- we can't say thank you enough, not just for the lovely service but for the kind and safe environment you create for the kids.
