Great. Becky gave a 5 word answer ("Pertains to Members Club Only"), so I didn't even think to ask if that meant the other ranges were off limits altogether. That would make it even worse. I guess I better follow up.

Well Stoney, I'll invite you to dinner at Members if you invite me to dine at the Reserve! What are friends for? LOL!

Just one more membership factoid.

Membership told me that SJP Clubs are moving in the "near future" to members only dining. Unless you have a Signature or Premier membership, the only dining option you will have is Tommy's.

For those who live in SJP, are the club restaurants so crowded that it would make sense to eliminate non-club members from dining? My only experience was this past summer on a Saturday night when I tried to make a last minute reservation at the Reserve Club for dinner and they were booked. Every other time I had no trouble making a reservation.

I have not had an issue with reservations, but I usually make them one day in advance. Of course once the plantation is built out, that may be a problem.

So it appears that SJP is beginning the transformation into a true "country club" environment where the majority of the amenities will only be available to those homeowners who can afford to be "members". I wonder if that was the vision of Homer Wright and partners when SJP was being planned. I'm also curious how those individuals who are long time residents and have been using the club dining facilities will respond when they are turned away at the door for being non- members. Seems like it might be a touchy situation.

Looks like there is "trouble in paradise". My thoughts have always been to look hard at SJP and OR with WR as an alternate. I am 2 years away from heading south from PA. I was down in NMB in Aug and for the first time showed the "plantations" to the Mrs. She felt they were isolated and too far from the beach. The numbers at SJP are getting a tad over the top and unless they get reflected in lower property costs will be prohibitive. As a result I have expanded my search to include North Myrtle Beach, SC.

SC is better tax wise and I have found a gated development (Ocean Keyes) that is a walk to the beach, shopping, bars etc. As a resident I would have discounted golf at 100 courses. I am still going to rent for a period of time to make sure I am making the right move but my area of "investigation" has expanded.

Make sure if you buy in SC it is your personal residence. I was going to buy and move down there a few years later. As a non resident the property tax rate is much higher. My taxes for the same type home in SJP would have been triple in Hilton Head. If you live there year round it is no problem.

Per Becky:

Quote:
Beginning January 1, 2015, the only practice facility available to Social Members is at The Members Club ($10 daily fee), except for day of play at Founders, Members or Players Clubs (no fee).
