Benefits and Caliber of Reciprocal Clubs

Countless members of The Penn Club enjoy the exclusive membership benefits of access to these 150+ amazing reciprocal clubs throughout the world. Members have access privileges to these outstanding private club's facilities and gracious services for their own social and business needs while visiting these clubhouses. Many of the reciprocal clubs of The Penn Club are very exclusive city clubs and selective country clubs around the world.

For example, one of the golf clubs is America's oldest golf club. Another city club only accepts members who have contributed exceptionally to mankind's development and their membership includes numerous Nobel Peace Prize winners and Pulitzer Prize winners; some members even have their faces and names on postage stamps within the United States and around the world! 

Penn Club members enjoy the membership benefits of hob-nobbing with members at these extremely exclusive private clubs. Some members even feel that the value provided through our network of reciprocal clubs alone is worth joining The Penn Club!


How Does Reciprocity Work?

When you are a Penn Club member and wish to visit a reciprocal clubs, the first step is to call the reciprocal club you wish to visit to ensure availability. Once you have made your reservations, contact the executive office at the Penn Club to have a letter of introduction sent to the club(s) you wish to visit during your travels. This letter of introduction verifies that you are a member in good standing at the Penn Club, and is good for 30 days.

There is no cost to request a letter of introduction and there is no limit to the number of letter of introductions that you can request from the Penn Club in a year. You can request more than one letter of introduction at any one time, which can be helpful if you are traveling to a city with several reciprocal clubs. However, each reciprocal club may have different rules and limitations regarding what our members can do at their club and the frequency of your visit. All Penn Club members must abide by their house rules.

Please note that clubs in Asia do not accept letters of introduction from those Penn Club members who reside in Asia.

Don't see a club that you wished would be reciprocal to our Club? Members are welcome to participate in the process of recommending new reciprocal clubs to be added to our list. This privilege is only available to current Penn Club members in good standing as the Club is for the members, by the members.


Each reciprocal club has their own House Rules and limitations in their reciprocal agreement with The Penn Club. These reciprocal agreements are courtesy agreements, and are subject to change at any time. Members are advised to contact the reciprocal club you wish to visit to clarify any specific conditions and limitations before making your reservation and letter of introduction request. members must abide by their rules, regulations and requests while visiting these clubs.
