I would make the distinction bub from a map-data end-user's point of view:
can I walk/drive up to the place and obtain a permit on the fly, with or
without paying a "fee". The on-the-fly payment may include payment of
membership of some kind on first entry, or similar arrangements. If access
requires prior membership in a club or an association, I would suggest to
use access=members. Admittedly there is a soft border with "customers", for
example in case of access to the car park of shops that requires membership
(e.g. REI in the US).
