UNAVAILABILITY OF FACILITIES & CHANGES OF FACILITIES/SERVICES
The obligation to pay dues is not dependent on the availability of all Club facilities and sites at all times. Tournaments, repairs, maintenance, and other circumstances may make it necessary for the Club to restrict use of or temporarily close one or more of the facilities. Dues will not be reduced or suspended when facilities are unavailable. Club reserves the right to change any of the facilities or services offered at any time and such changes will not entitle Member to cancel or change this agreement.

If Member so cancels, Club shall refund the initiation fee and all pre-paid monthly dues, except that Club shall be entitled to pro-rated monthly dues for all services provided prior to the cancellation date. Refunds shall be paid to Member within 10 days of when Club receives notice of cancellation.

Terminated members must return membership cards to Club and are held liable for all charges on their account incurred through the date of termination.

Voluntary Termination: Member may cancel or convert its membership or any portion of its membership. Member must provide management with a written cancellation or change of status form at least 7 days prior to when the cancellation or change is to take place.
