Membership Freezes

Memberships can be frozen because of extended travel or medical conditions. Written documentation is required. Pending approval, your membership length will be extended. Freeze request forms are available in the Pro Shop.

Membership Cancellations

Paid-in-full memberships are nonrefundable and nontransferable. Auto-debit memberships, which continue indefinitely, may be cancelled after one year with no penalties. Please provide at least 30 days notice. Penalties apply when an auto-debit membership is cancelled before one year of membership. When purchasing an auto-debit membership, you are committing to a one-year contract. This contract entitles you to a discounted membership rate every month throughout the year. By breaking your contract, you are also waiving your right to the discounted rate.

If you are considering cancelling your auto-debit membership before the minimum one-year agreement, please use the following formula to evaluate the actual cost of your membership:

Monthly rate of your category (not the auto-debit monthly rate) x Number of active months
+ $11 Parking pass x Number of active months
+ $20 Processing fee
- Amount you have already paid this year
= Remaining balance (compare this to the cost of remaining active through the contract date)
