Use of most features of this website will be available only to active Apparation Golf & Country Club members via password-protected member accounts.
Apparation LLC will make a good faith effort to make the site available 7/24 except for brief periods of downtime when new features are being deployed.
We will not sell or otherwise provide lists of e-mail addresses, phone numbers, names or other personally identifiable information relating to people registered on the site to any 3rd party.
Member contact information (e.g., email address, phone number) will not be displayed on website pages other than the user profile update page. This contact information will only be used by Apparation LLC to forward club-related correspondence to members.
3. Member Obligations
Each member must provide proof that (s)he is currently a member in good standing of at least one Eligible Club. The list of Eligible Clubs is displayed on the website and may be changed at any time.
Proof of membership can either be a picture or scanned copy of a recent member statement or a reference letter from another Apparation member who belongs to the same Eligible Club. Apparation LLC will activate a member after payment has been received and after proof of membership in an Eligible Club has been received via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each member agrees to make a good faith effort to host at least one foursome per year enabling three other golfers to play at their club. The guests will pay for green fees, cart fees and for any other services used at the club.
Each member must pay annual dues, which are currently $100 per year and which may change from time to time at the discretion of Apparation LLC. All dues are non-refundable. If a prospective member pays dues and subsequently is unable to provide proof of membership in an Eligible Club, the amount paid will be considered to be a non-refundable application fee.
Each member agrees to adhere to the club rules of any Eligible Club when visiting as a guest or when hosting other members.
