Headed down that way at the end of the month for a long weekend of golf and I am sure a few too many "holy waters". Staying on Sunset Beach and playing all four of the courses at Ocean Ridge. Even though SJP is in my future (5 years and counting) I am anxious to take a hard look at the "Ridge". I will post my review.

Caco.... FYI, whilst at Sunset beach..... there is an "excellent" Italian restaurant that we went to last week right behind the Food Lion..... thought I was in Hoboken, great food....

La Cucina Italian Grill - Home

a really nice young gentleman named Ricardo owns it and he is doing a beautiful job..... every seat was filled.

Stone,

Is there a bakery down there that rivals Carlo's in Hoboken?

Thanks for the tip Stoney, nice menu indeed. In my many golf trips down to Myrtle it always appeared to me to be fast food and chain restuarant heaven (or hell). Give me a family owned joint where they put their heart and soul into the place and you'll have a good meal. As I recall you had foul weather on your OR visit. We are hoping for clear skys and long drives. Tough to get a flavor of a community looking at the back of houses from the golf course but I am sure I will run into a few residents who want to chat and answer questions.

Pony, you really pushin' the wish list now.....

HOWEVER, the Butcher of Brunswick AKA Randy's Meat Market on Rt 17 South in Holden beach, just about 20 minutes from here, has what I personally would call VERY good pastry items..... he brings them in frozen ( along with frozen bread dough that he bakes fresh each day ) from a bakery in Brooklyn where he is from ( don't know which bakery ) and has a deli case filled with all sorts of items from the bakery..... if you close one eye and carefully look over your glasses you definitely might think you were looking at a deli case in Hoboken..... pretty good stuff IMO.

Hey guys, could anyone give me rough idea of what the total is of all the fees? I know there's a POA fee and a golf membership fee. Is there still an initiation fee, and if so, how much is it currently?

Default FEE Total is up to you.

1 - POA FEE is $790 per year, paid semi-annually.

2 - To use the CLUBS facilities, you begin by paying the INITIATION FEE of $15K nonrefundable or $30K refundable (not a full refund)

3 - Your other fees are based on which level of CLUB membership you choose. For details, go back 1 or 2 pages, to my message titled "Dues and Golf fees from the horses mouth."

4 - Get out your calculator and add them up.

5 - If you live in a condo/townhouse or a maintanance free neighborhood like Regency Lakes or Seaside, you will also pay an HOA Fee for the maintanance of your lot. The fee is different for each development.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks.

The POA fee is reasonable. Is the $495 golf membership per member or per family?

Default FEES (continued)

Family

One "FEE" I neglected to mention:
As a CLUB member, at any level, you will be required to spend a minimum of $600 per year in the restaurants/grills at the CLUBS, or be billed for the shortage. It works out to $50/month (figured that out without a calculator), which is easy to do by having dinner for two, once a month, at THE RESERVE CLUB. Recommend it highly.
