 Membership in either Club is by invitation only. A purchaser of property on The Preserve is invited to apply for Membership(s) in one or both Clubs during the purchase escrow period. The application is reviewed and accepted or declined by the Joint Membership Committee prior to close of escrow. The Clubs offer a limited number of applications for Club-Only Memberships, which include Memberships in both Clubs, to non-property owners, allowing their families to enjoy all of the Preserve’s events, activities and amenities, including accommodations and dining at the Hacienda. A Preserve Golf Club only membership is also available to non-property owners seeking a purely golf experience.
