Homeowners’ Dues: All individuals and/or entities named on the Grant Deed of your condominium unit are considered Owners. Upon acquisition of a condominium, Homeowners’ Dues (monthly regular assessments) will be levied on the residential unit. These dues are for all common area maintenance, including but not limited to landscaping, roads, pool maintenance and security. Annual Homeowners’ Dues are currently $10,380.00, billed monthly at $865.00.
Resident Social Membership Dues: The Resident Social Membership entitles Members to use the Clubhouse, Tennis and Fitness Facilities; attend social events; and receive a member discount at the Pro Shops when using your Club Account.
Each Owner (up to a maximum of four Owners per condominium) must become a Resident Social Member by executing a Resident Social Membership Agreement and paying basic dues (except in the case of ownership by a husband and wife or an unmarried Owner and his/her Cohabitant, where the two persons are considered as a single Owner/Resident Social Member). Children and/or stepchildren under the age of 25 who live at home or attend college may also enjoy membership privileges.
When a partnership, limited partnership, trust, Limited Liability Company, corporation, or other form of business entity purchases a unit, that entity must designate at least one individual or couple to be the designated Resident Social Member.
Subject to existing fee schedules, as well as other limitations contained within the governing documents, guest cards may be issued to Immediate Family Members of an Owner (defined as parents, children, grandchildren and their spouses). Bona fide renters of a unit may obtain Tenant cards for food and beverage privileges. They may use the Tennis and Fitness Facilities according to the current fees. If the Member has a Golf Membership, the Guest or Tenant may play golf subject to existing fee schedules, as well as other limitations contained within the governing documents, and only if the Owner is in good standing. Annual Resident Social Membership Dues are currently $2,400.00, billed monthly at $200.00.

With each Resident Social Membership, a Member is granted the right to use and enjoy the Country Club, Tennis, Fitness, and all Food & Beverage Facilities. Owners may elect to pay additional fees for golf playing privileges. The fees for a Golf Membership are based on our fiscal year of July 1st to June 30th.

Each Resident Social Member must decide on or before the fifteenth day of July of each year thereafter whether or not to renew their golf membership.

Golf playing privileges are limited to two (2) Resident Social Member (and the children of that Residential Social Member) per condominium, consistent with the provisions of Section 4.3 of the CC&Rs. (In the case of ownership by a husband and wife or an unmarried Owner and his/her Cohabitant, the two persons are considered a single Owner/Resident Social Member.) Annual Designated Golf Resident Membership Dues are currently $5,760.00, billed monthly at $480.00.
