General Information

  • Annual dues are for one calendar year (January 1st – December 31st) and are not pro-rated
  • One membership application must be submitted per person, including junior members
  • New applications submitted before Oct 1st will expire at the end of the current calendar year; New applications submitted after Oct 1st will be good through the end of the following calendar year
  • New membership applications must be submitted in person at the clubhouse; if you are signing up as an adult member please be sure to bring photo identification with you
  • New members are required to have a sponsor sign their application form.  The sponsor can be any adult member that has been a member in good standing with the association for at least 1 year
  • New members are required to be a US citizen
  • New members will only be issued a membership card after being officially read-in at the next general membership meeting following submission of their application; this will typically arrive in the mail within a month after that meeting. You may begin using the facilities immediately after your application has been submitted. Please be sure to keep your application receipt on you as it will serve as your temporary membership card until you receive your actual card in the mail.
  • The association currently only accepts cash or check for membership payment
  • Once paid, dues can not be refunded for that membership year
  • The spouse, children, and step-children of a member may use the facilities as a member, but cannot vote.  Spouses may sign-up and pay dues for their own membership if they wish to vote.  If you are a spouse, child, or step-child of a member and do not have your own membership, you must carry a copy of the card-holding member’s card with you when using the facilities.
  • A widow or widower of a member in good standing may continue the membership in their name, provided dues payment is kept current, otherwise a new application must be submitted and initiation fee paid
  • Renewals are due by December 31st of the current membership year or else a late fee will be assessed
  • Renewals not paid by January 31st will result in your membership being terminated; once terminated a new membership application will need to be filled out and the initiation fee paid again to be reinstated as a member
  • Renewals for the following year may be submitted starting Oct 1st
