I am a Real Estate professional in the on-site office in Hunters Run. All ownersin Hunters Run must have Equity in the club and that is $35,500 as a one time payment. When you leave or sell your property you get back $28,400. There is also a $10,000 initiation fee that is a one time payment. If you and your spouse are under 62 years of age that is not charged. Contact me and I would be happy to give youevery detail about owning and enjoying all the facilities in Hunters Run
Call me at my on-site ofice at 561-738-1134 or on my cell phone at 561-715-1769.

Hi Annie,

It all depends on where you live. Some places require full membership. Some places offer social memberships as well and some place might even offer pay as you go memberships. Your real estate agent should be able to get you that info.

Sounds like you might like a social membership so you could use pool and restaurants. There is a fee but usually not as high as the full country club membership.

Hello Annie,

Welcome to South East Florida and congratulations on making the move to our area. It isn't mandatory to join all country clubs in their respective communities and not all have equity memberships. I typically advise my clients that if they don't feel they will use the facilities they offer, then it may not be worth paying the monthly and equity dues to live in some communities. There are many beautiful communities that may meet your needs, so please let me know what exactly you are looking for. Contact me at or 561.542.4131. As a Boynton Beach resident, I can further assist you in your search and move to our area. Thank-you.

GO to
CLICK ON the red tab that says EXPLORE THE AREA
Scroll down through each city and click on:
and you will find in each area, photos and descriptions of non-equity country clubs.

If you would like me to compile and send you a list of available properties in non-equity communities with pools and restaurants, email me at and please include: how many bedrooms, how many baths, price range, any pets (weights of each-some communities have pet restrictions) and if you are age 55+.

Happy to find you THE HOME OF YOUR DREAMS....

Your original question was about Hunter's Run. In Hunter's Run it is mandatory to join the club even if you never use any of the facilities. There are other neighborhoods that are just as lovely as Hunter's Run where you would not have to join a country club and pay the equity, and dues. Please contact me and I will be glad to provide more information on other neighborhoods in the Boynton Beach area that might better meet your needs.

This varies from community to community and depends on association guidelines.
