Actually, the fees at Venice Golf & Country Club have just changed, effective August 16, 2013.
First, there is a Master Association fee for everyone - $1800 per year.
Then, there are neighborhood fees ranging from $570 to $625 per quarter.
There is also a required social equity membership for everyone, which entitles you to use of the golf course and tennis facilities six times a year, with full privileges to use the community pool, fitness center, and clubhouse with restaurant and cocktail lounge.
That's just $5000 ONE TIME, with $100 in reserved equity, and an annual $2894 in fees, plus annual $838 reserve funding per household.
Recreational membership provides unlimited use of tennis, golf six times per year, and full use of the clubhouse and amenities.
That's $7500 ONE TIME, with $100 in reserved equity, $3727 in annual fees plus the $838 annual reserve funding.
Finally, a full equity golf membership is $10,000, with $100 reserved equity, plus $1221 in annual fees, and $1221 in annual reserve funding.
Let me know what neighborhood you are looking at, specifically, and I can confirm that quarterly fee for you.
This is a gorgeous community with a great golf course, upscale clubhouse, and perfect location off Center Road - probably about 10 minutes to Sharky's on the Beach.
I live and work in Venice and am happy to be a local resource for you.
Thanks for asking.
