Administration: All personal records and account information are held confidentially for club-use only. Members are required to give written notice of change in mailing or e-mail address to which communications should be directed. Any new Full Club, Executive, Senior or Student memberships are subject to a $1,000.00 Commitment Fee upon joining. Such initiation fees will be waived for any new member (Full, Senior, Executive, Student or Junior) that joins the Beau Rivage Golf Club on or before January 10, 2017. All golf club memberships will be automatically renewed one year after the date of joining unless written notification to management is provided at least 30 days in advance.
Cart Operation: The operator of any cart used for course play must have a valid driver’s license and is required to sign the Starter’s Log prior to teeing off before every round. At Beau Rivage, all members are asked to abide by the standard 90° Rule at all times unless otherwise specified by the Golf Shop (ex. Cart Path Only on specific holes due to weather, maintenance projects, etc.). Ride the path until reaching your next shot, then drive in a straight line directly to your ball. In turn, exit the fairways on the same path that you entered. Beau Rivage requires that all players avoid any bare spots in the turf and wooded areas. Carts should always remain on the path near all tee boxes and putting surfaces at all times. All Par 3 Holes (#4, #5, #12 and #15) are Cart Path Only at all times. Any damages inflicted on a cart as a result of misuse may result in repair fees or, depending on circumstances of the damage (and at the sole discretion of management), loss of membership good-standing. Beau Rivage recognizes that some players have limitations that make it difficult to walk long distances throughout a round. Customized Member Handicap Placards and Handicap Cart Flags are offered for those who provide a valid doctor’s note showing such limitations. Such placards will allow closer access to areas on the golf course but these carts must still remain at least 10 yards away from any tee boxes, collars or putting surfaces at all times.
Course Etiquette: The game of golf relies on the integrity of the individual player to show consideration for others and to abide by the rules. Members are required to conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times. Club Members must always be aware of others in their group, others on the course and themselves and should never take any action that could endanger anyone. Members should also do anything possible to leave the course the way it was found by filling divots, raking sand traps and repairing ball marks on putting surfaces. USGA Rules apply at all times unless otherwise stated. Appropriate course attire consists of a collared/golf shirt and no denim. To help preserve the quality of course conditions, only soft-spikes or soft-sole shoes should be worn during play. Personal coolers and glass bottles specifically are not permitted on the golf course or Beau Rivage grounds at any time. Groups of five or more players are not permitted to play on the golf course at any time. For safety purposes, no activity other than golf is permitted on the golf course. Golf staff have full authority to enforce all rules, monitor pace of play and may do whatever is deemed necessary to alleviate any issues that may occur on golf course property. Please contact the Golf Shop directly at (910) 392-9021 should you see any suspicious activities occuring on golf course property.
Golf Handicap: The purpose of a Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable for golfers by providing a means of measuring one’s performance and progress by establishing a Handicap Index. This index enables golfers of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis. To play in any competitive member golf events at Beau Rivage, it is essential that each player conform to the responsibilities outlined in the Beau Rivage Golf Club Handicap Policy.
Golf Outings: Beau Rivage hosts a wide variety of golf outings and events throughout the year and reserves the right to charge additional fees (eg. Tournament, Shotgun Fees) on top of existing member golf fees or annual trail plans. A full list of scheduled 2017 golf events can be found online at www.beaurivagegolf.com.
Good Standing: To maintain good-standing, a primary member is required to keep their account current and adhere to all membership terms and conditions. Primary members, account dependents and their guests are required to conduct themselves in a respectful manner while using the facilities. Any member that infringes upon any term or guidelines will at first offense be given a verbal warning, at second offense be given a written notice of infringement and at third offense be subject to suspension (non-refunable) of membership and all of the entitlements. At fourth offense, the member will be subject to a non-refundable forfeiture of membership. Beau Rivage reserves the right to suspend or terminate any club membership that, in its discretion, fails to meet these criteria.
Hours of Operation: The golf course and resort facilities are available for use 364 days out of the year (closed on Christmas Day only) during established business hours that are posted throughout the clubhouse and online at beaurivagegolf.com. Beau Rivage reserves the right to close the course, facilities or portions of either during established hours for scheduled maintenance, repairs, outings or private functions.
Loyalty Rewards: Golf club and resort members are automatically set-up to enjoy Beau Rivage’s Member Loyalty Rewards Program. Rather than enforcing a monthly spending minimum, this program is designed to reward member support by providing spending incentives. In 2017, club and resort members will receive one (1) Loyalty Point per $1.00 spent at Beau Rivage on food and beverage purchases and select Golf Shop merchandise. Every 500 points earned may be redeemed for a $25 BR Gift Card valid on any purchases around the resort. Referring a new club member to join at Beau Rivage will create additional rewards. Any current member that refers a new Golf Club membership (Club Single, Couple, Family, Senior, Executive, Student, Junior or Business) is rewarded with double loyalty points throughout the year --- two (2) points earned per $1.00 spent. Referrals must provide the current member’s account number on their application to qualify.
Membership Cards: Each primary member, spouse and/or account dependent is required to have a picture identification taken for their membership card. Embedded with an account number, member cards are used to process applicable discounts for preferred pricing, accumulate loyalty points on sales and track spending when used at clubhouse sales registers. Membership cards may also be used for charging payments to your club account (credit card on-file required). This service is offered at no charge and can be set-up or cancelled at any time. Members are required to carry their cards at all times while using the facilities and display them to the staff any time a transaction is made. Cards may only be used by the person to whom they are issued. In the event that a card is misplaced, a replacement may be provided for a $10.00 fee. All membership cards expire on January 1, 2018.
Medical Leave: Any member in good standing may request from the club a medical leave of absence. The request must be in writing, and must specify the medical reason supporting the request. Furthermore, the request must specify how long it is anticipated that the member will be unable to play golf, and the date that the request, if granted, is to be effective. The member is encouraged to provide third party medical verification supporting the request. Every medical leave of absence granted shall be effective as of the 1st day of a month (and may be retroactive to the beginning of the month in which the request is made, if applicant has not played golf during that month). The minimum duration of a medical leave of absence is 60 days. During the duration of the leave of absence, the member shall pay dues equal to the dues paid by a resort member to maintain social perks (discounts, loyalty points, etc.). Furthermore, during the leave of absence, the member shall not play golf at Beau Rivage. The member shall, however, be allowed to use the practice green and practice range if such use is consistent with the condition of the member, or is appropriate to the member’s rehabilitation. Any excused medical absence (sixty days or more) for a membership that is already paid in-full (Early Bird and/or Trail Plan) will be adjusted or credited toward the future by Beau Rivage management staff.
Pace of Play: The USGA estimated time of completion for 18 holes by a foursome is four hours and thirty minutes. Pace of play is monitored by the Golf Shop, Course Starters and Course Ambassadors to ensure an enjoyable golfing experience for all players. Any golfers falling behind pace may be asked (via staff or GPS dashboard messages) to keep up with the group ahead or allow groups to play through. Helpful pace of play tips can be found online at www.playgolfamerica.com.
Payment Terms: Any club membership may be paid for in-full upon signing (ask about up-front payment incentives). Monthly terms are reserved for Golf Club (Single, Couple, Family, Senior, Executive, Student, Junior) only. Seasonal and business memberships must be paid in-full at time of inceptoin. The billing cycle will send out quarterly statements to all members. Dues are payable on the 1st of every calendar month and must be received by the 10th to avoid any late fees ($25.00). Accounts more than 30 days late without any notification to the club will suffer a loss of good-standing and the primary member will be billed as public for all rounds played and purchases made, including those from the start of the month, until the account becomes current. Once an account loses good-standing, it forfeits any perks and is deactivated. There is an account re-activation fee ($50.00). To free members from the hassle of writing checks, making extra trips to the clubhouse or worrying about late fees, Beau Rivage offers the convenienceof automatic monthly payments. When set up, dues are charged on the 1st of each month using a credit card held on file. This free additional service is optional and may be started or cancelled at any time. Any charges to a member account must be signed at the time of sale and will be paid monthly with a credit card on-file. Any member tabs that are left open overnight in The Veranda will automatically be charged to credit card on-file with an 18% gratuity.
Player Of The Year: Beau Rivage Golf Club Members are invited to compete in an annual Player of the Year Program that consists of four different player divisions (POTY, Senior POTY, Super Senior POTY and Ladies POTY) and features several tournaments where members can accrue points for participation and outing results. Members must select their division to compete in and must remain in that same division for the remainder of the calendar year. Club members will receive account credits for each outing (depending on finishing placement) that are placed on their account to use in the golf shop. At the end of the year, the top ten point leaders in each division will be qualified to compete in a Top 10 Shootout to determine the four division winners. Each division winner will be rewarded with prizes for the following year including complimentary single dues, name and year on POTY clubhouse plaque and designated clubhouse parking spot.
Pool Guidelines: Members are required to display their identifcation cards to the pool attendant upon entering the facilities. Golf Club members may receive unlimited daily guest passes to the pool but must accompany any guests while using the amenities. Children under the age of 14 need to be supervised by an adult at all times. Personal coolers or glass bottles are not permitted inside the pool facilities at any time. BEAU RIVAGE DOES NOT EMPLOY LIFEGUARDS. MEMBERS AND GUESTS SWIM AT THEIR OWN RISK.
Preferred Pricing: Golf Club members are entitled to preferred pricing resort-wide (20% discount on select merchandise, food and beverage purchases, clubhouse guest suites, special events tickets and banquet pricing including venue and additional rentals). Member discounts are not applicable toward alcohol sales or in combination with any promotional rates. It is important to display membership cards for every transaction to ensure the proper discounts are applied and that member loyalty points are accrued.
Range Options: Club members are privy to two different half-price driving range options. Members may purchase tokens for 50% off the public price (comes to $3.00 per small bucket and $5.00 per large bucket). Club Members may also choose buy a pre-purchased Range Pass for 50% off the public price (comes to $300.00 for 200 small range buckets or $1.50 per bucket). Range passes to not have an expiration date and last as long as it takes a member to go through 200 small range buckets.
Tee Times: Golf club members are reserved the right to book tee times up to four weeks in advance. Tee times may be booked in the Golf Shop, over the phone or online by visiting www.beaurivagegolf.com/teetimes. For access to your account when reserving tee times, members should provide as much information as possible (names of other players or guests in a group, using a private cart, etc.) to ensure a faster check-in process on the day of play. For the sake of maintaining an enjoyable pace of play for all, each tee time block is limited to no more than four players. Multiple blocks (any group larger than a foursome) may be reserved by a member if that person is making arrangements on behalf of the group. Individual players must confirm their own spots in the group by 12:00 p.m. the day before or they may be released to the public. Members that need to cancel a round must notify the Golf Shop to avoid wasted tee times that may have otherwise been used. All no-shows are recorded throughout the year. Habitual member no-shows may result in loss of good-standing.
Trail Plans: Annual plans allow members to enjoy unlimited rounds of golf with waived payment of daily fees. They also provide the option of using privately-owned cart on the golf course once it has been fully registered with the club. Any full club member with five consecutive years good-standing that turns 80 years old will be entitled to a free Single Trail Plan for life so long as the membership account remains current and they remain a member in good-standing.
