Can a member see a nonprofit's financial records?

I am a member of a non-profit golf club (600+ members). I was denied access to the financial records, by-laws and meeting minutes. What is the law?

Ordinarily members of a nonprofit corporation have a right under the state nonprofit corporation law to review the books and records of their corporation for any proper corporate purpose. Ask again, and ask for a specific reason if you are denied again. You may have to get help from a lawyer if they continue to resist.
