ALSO, PLEASE PRINT ALL OF THE IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION LEGIBLY ON YOUR 2008 CARD. WE ARE HAVING SOME TROUBLE READING SOME OF THE INFORMATION AND HAVE TO GUESS AS TO THE CORRECT DATA. ADDITIONALLY, ALL CARDS MUST CONTAIN THIS INFORMATION BEFORE THEY WILL BE PROCESSED.
It is not absolutely necessary to return your old gate key, however old gate keys in good condition can be re-keyed. It would be appreciated if you would deposit your old keys in the mailbox in front of the Club House. This action will help save the Club money. Thank you.
