BUNDLED
Summary: Membership bundled together with Title to the property, requiring no initiation fee and annual dues of Between $1600 - $2500 per year. Every front door in the community is a full member. Average number of front doors will be around 800 in each community. Some more ... and some less.

Looking at the $-numbers, Bundled is much less expensive than Equity golf. Bundled is a form of equity. If you live in a bundled golf community, your full membership privileges are 'bundled' together with Title to the property and automatically pass to the new owner at closing without any initiation fee. Every 'front door' is a full member with equal rights to that 8 AM tee time. Typically, there are about 800 front doors in each bundled golf community. (By Comparison, an Equity course would limit the size of the full membership up to maximum of about 375.) Golfers would pay only a cart fee to play golf. However, not everyone plays golf. A bundled club would include a major golf course, club house, pro shop, restaurant, fitness center, club pool, etc. Each 'front door' or owner will pay annual dues which cover the annual Operations and Maintenance of the club facility. Typically, annual dues will fall into a price range of between $1600 - $2600 a year and most do not have food or beverage minimums. And even if there was a minimum, it might be in the range of $1000 a year, which is not a difficult price level. The annual dues are over and above the condo maintenance fees or home owner association fees. Bundled communities make for easy rental income as tenants can assume the full rights and privileges as if they were the owners / members by paying a Transfer fee of about $100 for the time period they are in residence. The positive side of bundled golf is that it is affordable. Nothing comes without a cost. You may not pay an initiation fee but the cost of that initiation is buried in the price of the residence. It is still very affordable. Some communities have residences that sell in the range of the low $100's. The down side to bundled golf is that with so many front doors, getting a tee time can prove to be somewhat difficult during Season. Tee times are assigned by computer system.

EQUITY
Summary: Membership is by individual application requiring a sizable initiation fee, most or all of which will be returned to you upon resignation. Memberships are capped out at from 225 - about 375 per 18 holes with the lower number of members / club requiring greater initiation fees as would be expected. Annual dues may be in excess of $5000 as annual O&M is divided between fewer members (than bundled). Getting tee times is not the problem that can be encountered with a Bundled community.

From the starting gate, Equity is a different situation from Bundled golf. But it is handled very differently from the cost of an equity membership in the north. Up north, you pay a sizeable initiation fee to join a club and you 'kissitgoodby'. There is rarely a refund when you resign that northern membership. Major clubs in the Naples area will also have a sizeable initiation fee. However, as people frequently move from one community to another in the Naples area, Equity initiation fees are refundable. The timeframe in which you are refunded can vary from 'immediately' to a ratio of 4:1 ... meaning for every four new members, one outgoing member is refunded. As membership caps are maxed out, this ratio lowers. Depending on the maturity of the club ... maturity meaning, is the Developer still in control of the club or has it been turned over to the membership ... the resigning member may get back a (a) percentage of what was paid for initiation, (b) a 100% refund of what was paid or (c) a percentage of the prevailing rate, not to be less than a or b, depending on the rules and regulations. While a Bundled club might have 800 'front doors' as full members, an Equity club will typically have up to about 350 - 375 full members. As there are fewer members, it is far easier to 'walk-on and get a tee time. In some cases, the number of full Equity members will be much lower than 375, as in 225, but the costs will be much higher. (Someone has to pay the expenses !) Initiation fees might range from $40,000 to as high as $250,000 ! As there are fewer Equity members than in a Bundled club, annual dues will likewise be higher. Annual Dues may run from about $5000 upwards. A percentage of the Equity clubs will have more than one golf course with a limit on the number of members per 18 holes. The majority of the clubs will require residence in that specific community. There are exceptions to this requirement.
