Other Useful Notes:

In case of severe weather the fire whistle in the local community will blow a steady whistle for three minutes. The access hole in your garage is a designated area for protection and the Main Club House is equipped with emergency power for a central gathering place.

There are two clubhouses that can be rented out for personal use/parties for residents. The rental must be resident or investor sponsored. The fee for renting the main clubhouse begins at $250.00 and rises depending on the number of occupants; the fee for the activities clubhouse is also $125.00. It is the responsibility of the resident to make sure that the clubhouse is clean after each use.  See the Rental Rules for complete instructions.

Current Golf fees can be obtained from the park office. Annual memberships are available as well as individual daily fees. Guests of residents are welcome (guest fees apply). Sign in at the golf course clubhouse required each time you golf.
