Default Lock the Gates! The Active Pair are on the way!

All seriousness aside, we are on the way. Just bought a lot and plan to build next year.
Why SJP? You might have noticed that we are the "ACTIVE PAIR." Active as in golf (big surprise), fitness, swimming, bicycling (how we met 11 years ago), scuba diving, dog training, Masons, hiking, beach activities, sipping wine while watching the sunset etal. We wanted a community where we could do something different everyday of the week. At first, we thought THE VILLAGES, in FL, was the place for us until the oppressive summer heat discouraged us. This time last year, we received promo material from SJP. After reading the "Coasting" booklet and watching the DVD, it hit us. SJP reminded us of a mini VILLAGES.
After spending most of the year caring for a mother who left us in December, we were finally able to go down last month, for the "Eyetalian Weekend." It exeeded our expectations.
We found a great deal on a lot and now "have our foot in the door."
Now we are researching the "Guild Builders." Any recommendations or opinions?

Ahhh, another sharp Jersey Guy who has all the angles covered. Atta boy Stoney. Love to play pool with the boys and have a number of beers. Also love to play poker with a group. Don't need high stakes, just quarters, dimes and nickels. Not about the money, just downing some brewskies and jabbering with the boys or couples.

The Good life is near soon.....

Default A Question??

Stoney, you might be able to answer this as well as some other posters. Does anyone know the ins and outs if one buys a resale or lot or whatever now but they don't plan on moving to SJP for 4 years or sooner, how does the Memberships work out. Assume we will pay the 775 annual dues but my question is more directed at the Golf Memberships. Would i be required to pay the 250.00 a month food assessment? Based on what plan I would sign up for would I have to pay the 350.00 or 450.00 Golf membership dues during this period as well even though i am still considered a full time resident of New Joisey??
Just trying to line my ducks up as they say.

Go Duke!!!!!

Dear biscula... 1st of all "some" beers and "a number" of brewskies are very subjective terms..... I believe you might like to be more specific....

Next, IF I have it correct, the least expensive membership plan is $160 per month, which is what I have, which allows you to use all the facilities, clubhouses and play golf anywhere except the "Reserve" course.... in point of fact one does not actually need to be a "member" at all to actually play golf, there are outside players although not a preponderance of them.... the food mimimum for members is $600 annually, but again, one does not actually need to be a member to dine at the restaurants ( again, except the Reserve Club ).... theoretically there ARE outside diners at the clubhouses but the POA says that is also very minimal, mostly limited to those playing golf and then having lunch before leaving the plantation. So to answer your question, it is not a huge financial burden to own a lot / house here while waiting to move here full time, there are a lot of others in that very position.

Ahhhh, Very good catch brother Stoney, You caught me on the "some" versus "few". The wifecerous would say I don't know the meaning of either of those terms when it comes to quaffing a # of brewskies. Especially in the warm weather.
Once again you have answere my questions with the answers I like as well.

Now back to my research, thanks dude....

Stonecreek, Does the $160.00 include the price of golf? If not how much is a round of golf?

It does not include golf / greens fees.... we have not played yet so I do not recall the fees at the moment, if someone else doesn't chime in soon I will look it up.... but as I recall off hand it does not break the bank.

Default Dues and Golf Fees from the horses mouth.

The Initiation Fee plus $160/month gets you a Signature SOCIAL Membership. This entitles the SOCIAL Member "to use of the fitness, swimming, dining, Clubhouse and other social facilities" at the four Clubs. It also gets you complimentary use of the golf practice facilities and 7 day advance tee time signup EXCEPT at the Reserve Club. The Green & Cart Fees for a SOCIAL Member are $65 in the AM and $45 in the PM. again EXCEPT at The Reserve Club.

A SOCIAL Member cannot play tennis. To do so requires a GOLF or TENNIS membership.

The GOLF Membership, at $495/month gets you golf privileges at ALL four Clubs WITHOUT payment of Green Fees. Also Comp use of practice facilities, 14 day advance tee time and use of the same items listed for a SOCIAL Membership. A GOLF membership also allows you to play TENNIS and access to the Troon Prive' Privilege Program and Troon Golf Advantage Program, whatever they are.
This info comes right off the 2012 MEMBERSHIP DUES and GOLF FEES sheet that we just received.

Is it possible to sell your memebership independently of the house? We have a house at St James and will sell when the price gets to the cost of building it. We hate to pay all these fees for nothing when we do not live there.
