    "Immediate" modifies "family", not "male". "Male members of the immediate family".

    It appears to be, but context is always important.

    In a sentence, my "male immediate family members" currently wear beards sounds better to me.    And better yet, "all the men in my immediate family" have graduated college.  I've come to dislike deliberately structuring a sentence to use "male" as a pronoun in order to avoid the word man (or men).
