Use of Club Facilities

If a member of your family or party would like to use the club facilities during the weekend, or if you arrive early and would like to use the club there is a charge of $30 for an individual or $50 for a family guest fee. This will entitle you to use the pools, work out in the gym, or take a group exercise class. You will need to complete a guest waiver.
