The inquiry is not minded, at least by me.  I'd say take a good hard look at WordPress and chances are you can make it do a LOT more of what you want, rather than doing a whole new site and integrating FileMaker in the mix.

If each club member is a "user" in WordPress, you should be able to configure it so they can adjust their own details without touching other users.  Maybe if they're setup as authors instead of users is another idea.

And if you're hellbent on using FM, you could using the FileMaker to WordPress plugin in a distributed runtime to editing only certain pages, based on logic you build in FM.
