FAQ

Current MembersDo I need to sign up for a legacy membership or am I automatically moved into Legacy?

Current members as of January 1, 2019 who stay through construction are automatically eligible for the legacy membership.

What is the difference between my membership and the legacy membership?

No difference, Members will stay at the current membership rate they are at and will be considered legacy if they stay until we re-open.

You will be paying a much more significant amount as the dues will be almost double, and the entrance fee ranges anywhere from $2,400-$4,800.
