Hi there! I've yet to figure out how to 'correctly' respond to hidden posts, so I'm just going to comment here.

Below code should work. You might get away with hooking both filters to the very same callback function, as you've done above, but there's a slight catch: excerpts don't usually contain HTML, like hyperlinks, and thus aren't usually wrapped in paragraph tags (although all of that is filterable, too). I've chosen to treat excerpts separately.

In short:

  • the_content_rss is deprecated; use the_content_feed instead (which actually accepts a second argument, but we don't need it)
  • no need for is_feed() this filter should never get called outside of a feed context
  • you can directly access the global $post; no need for $wp_query
  • $content = $content; doesn't actually do anything; the entire else branch can be left out ($content will only get modified if the condition is true)
  • get_permalink( get_page_by_path( 'rss-club' ) ) returns an absolute, rather than a root-relative link; this ensures the link works inside all feed readers
  • for that last bit to work, you'll need (!) a page with slug 'rss-club'; if you wanted to make it more robust, you could check for its existence before modifying $content
  • err, that's it :-)
add_filter( 'the_content_feed', 'my_content_feed' );
function my_content_feed( $content ) {
	global $post;

	if ( has_category( 'rss-club', $post->ID ) ) {
		$content = '<p>Dit is een geheim bericht voor iedereen. <a href="' . get_permalink( get_page_by_path( 'rss-club' ) ) . '">Lees alles over de RSS Club.</a></p>' . $content;
	}

	return $content;
}

add_filter( 'the_excerpt_rss', 'my_excerpt_rss' );
function my_excerpt_rss( $content ) {
	global $post;

	if ( has_category( 'rss-club', $post->ID ) ) {
		// Excerpts usually don't contain HTML. Leave out the link.
		// $content = 'Dit bericht is alleen voor abonnees. ' . $content;

		// However, you probably could get away with it, like so:
		$content = '<p>Dit is een geheim bericht voor iedereen. <a href="' . get_permalink( get_page_by_path( 'rss-club' ) ) . '">Lees alles over de RSS Club.</a></p><p>' . $content . '</p>';
	}

	return $content;
}
