Shoreby Membership

Experience the Exceptional


Becoming a Member of the historic and prestigious Shoreby Club of Bratenahl, Ohio is not only an honor and privilege but also comes with numerous amenities. Shoreby Club has a rich Membership history that no other local Club can offer- priding ourselves on exceptional food and service, exquisite views, and a culinary menu appealing to all members. Built in 1890 as a summer home for Samuel Mather, this century-old lakefront Mansion serves as the main clubhouse for our Member-owned Club and is governed by Member’s who serve as Trustees. Because of the historic traditions of Shoreby Club and what we have to offer, becoming a Member is by invitation only and all applicants are subject to Board approval.

Members can also contribute their skills by serving on various committees that advise the Club’s General Manager. Committees are open to the entire membership, which allows Members to be as active as they choose.
