    If you’re on a hosting plan that doesn’t allow add-on domains your other option would be to enable WordPress multi-site.

    Basically, you’d have to edit your wp-config.php file to include:

    /* Multisite */
    define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );

    You would then navigate to your WordPress admin and setup your network.

    (Recommended to read this before starting)

    The Codex has very good documentation on this:

    https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    Since your web hosting package allows you to create subdomains, you would setup your second site on a sub-domain and then redirect the domain to the site using a CNAME DNS entry:

    The only big downside to this is your club’s website would be tied to your hosting account and would share themes/plugins that you install.

    However, you are able to give individual users unique access to each respective site. If you’re the sole administrator is may also save you sometime updating as you can handle everything inside the master install.

    Definitely a great way to save money and a very powerful feature of WordPress :).
