Planning on an out of town trip? Reciprocal clubs, whether located in the United States or in other countries, may be used for both business and pleasure. Many of our reciprocal clubs have rooms available for an overnight stay, as well as athletic clubs, spas, and dining facilities that are available to you and a guest. Being a member of The Petroleum Club of Bakersfield allows you to enjoy the most elegant accommodations that many hotels cannot match. Please call us for a letter of introduction prior to visiting another club at 661-324-6561 or email our Membership Director.
How does reciprocity work?
When you are a Petroleum Club of Bakersfield Member and wish to visit a reciprocal club, the first step is to call or email the membership office of The Petroleum Club and request a letter of introduction. After the introduction, you are able to make the arrangements for reservations to use the facility as desired. Once the reservations are made you are set for the visit. Most clubs will settle your charges upon departure with a credit card, much like a hotel. There is no cost to request the introduction letter and no limit to the number of letters you can request per year. If you review our reciprocal list and don’t see a club that you would like to be a reciprocal please make recommendations to the membership office. All members of Petroleum Club of Bakersfield in good standing are welcome to recommend new clubs to be added to our list. Please take advantage of this opportunity when traveling, as it is a wonderful treat.
