BuddyPress forums for members and site wide forums

I have BuddyPress active on my site, and I am also using Membership plugin.
I have Group forums installed as well.

I need a way for even non-paid members to participate in forums. But Group members should also have access to a private forum area that only their club can see.

However, when I tried to activate forums on Buddypress it said"You may activate both Group and Site Wide forums, but this may create a poor experience for your members."

Is there a way around this or is it not advisable to have both active?

Many thanks,
