Umbrella Association membership is an automatic function of purchasing a Tara Golf & Country Club property with a membership, and is not optional. As a private, member-owned Country Club, non-resident members are not permitted, nor is public use of the golf course and other club facilities. Membership includes the financial responsibility to pay specific annual and monthly fees according to member class. Member special assessments for major projects also may be required from time to time. To date there has been one special assessment used to refurbish the Clubhouse.
Class A Membership:
This is a full golf membership including use of the golf course, practice facilities, restaurant, Grille Room, snack bar, fitness facility, card rooms, swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna. In 2018, there is an annual fee of $4,956 per property. A cart rental fee of $21.60 per person is charged for each round. This fee covers the rental, sales tax and administrative charge. Walking is permitted at 3:00 or 4:00 p.m. depending on the season.
Class B Membership:
This is a social membership including use of the restaurant, Grille Room, fitness facility, card rooms, swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna. In 2018, there is an annual fee of $1,845.36 per property.
All members are subject to the Master Association Agreement administered by the developer Tara Manatee, Inc., which currently carries an annual fee of $834.50. This fee covers basic cable TV, HBO, high-speed internet, DVR availability, and more - for the year - and maintenance of the “common property” such as Tara Boulevard entrance and lakes.
If your property did not come with a membership, your financial responsibility is an annual fee of $834.50 (as mentioned above) and an annual fee of $117.84 payable to Tara Golf & CC which covers the maintenance of the perimeter wall and lakes within the Tara community.
You may purchase a Class A-golf or Class B-social membership.
*In addition, you may be a member of a condo association, which will assess fees for common grounds and building maintenance, or a local homeowners association, which may or may not assess fees for common grounds depending upon the location of your property.
