GENERAL RULES

2017

  

Membership

Golf, Social, Social-Pool, and Inactive Stockholder memberships are available at the Club. Please refer to the Club By-laws for membership privileges.  The LeSueur Country Club, in the Membership’s best interest, has limited the number of Golfing Members to 350.   The Membership Year is defined as the calendar year.

 

Resignation Policy

Golf members who wish to resign must notify the Club prior to the end of the calendar year in order to avoid charges for the next year and to receive full refund of their stock.  If notification is received after the end of the calendar year, yet prior to April 1st, the annual dues will be waived; however, the stock value will be forfeited to the Club.  If notification is received after the first of April, payment of the annual golf dues will be required and full refund of the stock value will be made at the end of the calendar year.

Golf members wishing to change to a Social membership may notify the Club of their intent and upon approval, the dues rate will be changed to the appropriate amount.  Social members wishing to change to a Golf membership may notify the Club of their intent and upon approval the dues rate will be changed to the appropriate amount.  If the notification is received prior to August 1st the annual golf member dues will be charged.  If notification is received after August 1st, the golf dues will be charged pro rata for the balance of the year.

Stock Subscription

A stock subscription of one share of stock, valued at $300, is also required of all adult stockholding golf and social members.  This doesn’t apply in the first-year of promotional membership specials.

Spending Requirement

Stock holding Golf Members must spend a minimum of $240.00 in the Clubhouse on food only by October 15th.  Purchases must be charged to stockholder’s member account. Gratuity does not apply toward minimum.  Any accounts not reaching the $240.00 requirement will be billed by the end of the calendar year for the balance.  This doesn’t apply in the first-year of promotional membership specials.
 

Credit Policy (Stockholding members only)

The business office at the Club prepares a monthly billing statement at the end of every month.  This statement will include all charges made at the Club for that month, plus the dues for the next month (for those members choosing to have their annual dues billed on a monthly basis). The payment of this balance is required to maintain your membership status at the Club.  Disputes may be registered within 30 days after receipt of statement.  Member charge accounts that are not paid in full by the last day of the month in which the billing statement is received are “past due” and are subject to a finance charge of 1.5 % of the “past due” balance.  Member charge accounts that are not paid in full by the end of the second month, after receipt of the billing statement, are considered “delinquent”.  Golfing and charging privileges will be revoked to accounts deemed to be delinquent until all “delinquent” payments are received.  Further if payment of “delinquent” charge amounts is not received by the next meeting of the Board of Directors, the membership will be “suspended” and legal action will begin for collection of the entire balance owed by the member charge account.
