Review of membership agreement
All applicants desiring a Membership must be approved by the Company, except as set forth herein. The Company may require an interview with the Membership Director, and/or other designees of the Club.

Rights governed by membership plan
Each Member of the Club agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of their respective Membership Agreement, this Membership Plan and the Rules and Regulations of the Club, as amended from time to time. Each Member irrevocably agrees that the Membership privileges and benefits provided for in this Membership Plan supersede any and all Membership privileges and benefits with respect to the Club or any Club Facilities that such Member may have previously acquired in any manner whatsoever.
OTHER MEMBERSHIPS AND USE PRIVILEGES
In order to introduce the Club to prospective Members, the Company may, in its sole discretion, offer Invitational Memberships on an annual or other basis. Invitational Members will be entitled to use the Club Facilities on such terms and conditions as determined by the Company from time to time. Invitational Memberships will not be available to persons who own a residence or homesite in the Community, except the Company may offer Invitational Memberships to multiple owners of a property in the Community (as more particularly described in the “Multiple Owners of Property” section of this Membership Plan) who are not classified as the designated user of a Membership in the Community. The total number of Invitational Memberships permitted to be issued will be limited to the difference between the maximum number of Memberships that can be issued in that category and the number of outstanding Memberships in Good Standing in that category. Invitational Memberships may be recalled on a last issued, first recalled basis to reduce the number of Memberships in the category to the maximum number of Memberships permitted in that category. The Company may offer recallable Invitational Memberships on such basis as it determines, including charging a non-refundable initiation fee, or a membership deposit refundable on such basis as determined by the Company.
The Company may issue up to ten (10) Company Memberships in the Club to such persons as the Company determines appropriate from time to time. Company Memberships will be available on such terms and conditions as the Company determines appropriate and will not count toward any Membership limit. Company Members will not be required to pay Membership Deposits. Company Members may have the same privileges as Golf Members, but will not pay dues, unless the Club is converted into an Equity Club, but will pay for goods and services purchased at the Club.
The Company may issue up to ten (10) Honorary Memberships in the Club to such persons as the Company determines appropriate from time to time. These Honorary Memberships will be in addition to all other Memberships and will be available on such terms and conditions and afford such privileges as the Company determines.
Memberships for private residence club
Residences in the Community may be developed as a Private Residence Club, which may include residences in other residential communities or may be part of a system that includes residences in other residential communities. An owner of a Membership in the Private Residence Club may acquire a Membership, with such privileges, terms and conditions as determined by the Company. In order to accommodate possible different structures, the Company reserves the right to tailor the Membership to the specific structure and modify this provision for the particular project. Memberships for owners in a Private Residence Club will be in addition to other Memberships permitted to be issued in this Membership Plan. Any such Membership may not be changed by the Equity Club after any equity conversion except with the consent of the holders of such Memberships.
The Company may, in its sole discretion, enter into reciprocal use privileges and access agreements with other clubs, as the Company determines appropriate from time to time. The Company and/or owners of the other clubs may charge Members of the Club such additional Membership deposit, dues, fees or charges for use of the facilities of the other clubs and/or charge members of the other clubs such Membership deposit, dues, fees or charges for use of the Club Facilities, as they determine from time to time. The Company shall give the members of the other clubs such privileges as it determines from time to time, and the owners of the other clubs shall give Members of the Club such privileges as such owners of other clubs determine from time to time. Reciprocal or access agreements, if any, shall survive any equity conversion.
Promotional use and tournament or group play
The Company will have the right to designate other persons who will not count toward Membership limits, including, without limitation, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, employees and designees of the Company and its affiliates and their guests to use the Club Facilities upon such terms and conditions as may be determined from time to time by the Company. The Company will also have the right to permit prospective Members and purchasers of residences or homesites in the Community to use the Club Facilities on such terms and conditions as may be determined from time to time by the Company.
