180k initiation, 18k in dues. Lots of people have said it before, but you'll never be able to justify the cost for just golf. You pay for the atmosphere, to be around like minded people that care for the property, because it is a big investment...for use only in winter time. But the friendliness and knowledge of the staff and conditions of the course, are second to none. I wish I would have been a part of a club a lot sooner.
let me get this straight... this is for winter only?
Yep. Club opens officially around thanksgiving (it's open at beginning of November) usually cleared out by 1st of May. Lots of clubs are seasonal only, as I am sure most are already aware.
Wow, I didn't know this. Having only lived in TN, NC and briefly in KY the only clubs I've ever been a part of were year round. I can understand up north where it's too cold to play during winter, but is it too hot to play year round in FL?
My guess is the membership is mostly snowbirds so there isnt enough use during the summer to justify staying open.
You're correct mostly snowbirds, there's just not enough to justify staying open through the summer. Plus it gives golf operations and maintenance time to renovate as necessary without having to worry about golfers or members
