As you have been reading, the Club is undergoing some major changes in dues for the coming year! As a returning member from 2017 your dues rate will be $800 per person or $1,600 for a couple. This is a reduction of $545 for a single and $675 for couples! By now, you should have received an email with a dues renewal application. We urge you to get yours in soon so we can determine next year's budget. As the appllication states, "If the real estate sells during 2018 all current (2018) members' dues for 2019 will be waived."

We are also offering a special promotional dues fee for both new members and those that may wish to return, if they were not full members in 2017. Those individuals will be offered a rate of $450 for singles, $900 for couples. With a couple clubs nearby closing or unsure of reopening in 2018, we hope the new, lower rate may attract both those golfers as well as lure some away from our currently operating competition.

Pro Shop:

As you know, the Pro Shop got a fresh, open, clean look last season, bringing us into the current century! We received many compliments from our members. We will be running the pro shop as usual, with carts available and the Practice Range open for business. Limited items such as golf balls, tennis balls, gloves, bug spray and sun screen will be available for purchase. Lessons may be available by appointment from a PGA Pro next year, but it is too soon to determine.
