Q. Will members have to pay a fee every time they play in addition to their dues?
A. The exact fee structure is not yet formulated. The likely scenario would be a membership that would include a fixed number of rounds at a preferred price, if members wanted additional rounds they could acquire those as needed for a preferred price. We understand the golf course is an important aspect to many residents of Brunello Estates, pricing will be very attractive for residents.
Q. There will be a "green space" fee this has no cap on it. Should there not be a cap, as the developer can raise this fee excessively?
A. There will likely be little or no cost in most green spaces. If residents want specific uses, i.e. gardens or birding sites then this would attract some cost. The developer does not plan any opulent green space uses.
Q. Does all golf course green fee revenue accrue to the developer?
A. The Links at Brunello is a standalone business distinct from the developer. It will accrue revenue and expense and be solely responsible for its day to day operations just like any business.
Q. Will members be permitted to operate their own ride on power carts for a trail fee?
A. Cart usage is mandatory and is included in the green fees. All carts have GPS mapping which allows golfers to know the distance to holes and as well are connected to the golf shop so we always know where the carts are. This enables us to better manage pace and allows for direct communication between the carts and the golf shop. As a result it isn’t practical to use your own golf cart on the course.
