You get the same rights as a homeowner -- Katie Belle's, golf courses, rec centers, pool, etc.

If you are not a golfer, consider declining the resident ID card with the $50 fee. You can get a free guest pass at the rec centers which give you access to virtually all of the activities offered. The neighborhood pools will all be available to you. You will not be allowed in Katie Belles (no loss) unless you are accompanied by a resident. Renters in our home never purchase the ID privileges unless they are golfers.

The $50 fee for two people is actually a temporary resident ID provided by the individual who owns the house you are renting. You are taking their place in the home. You would then have free access to the sports pools and Executive golf courses. There is a cart fee you will pay on the golf course unless you rent a bag carrier for $1.00. Guests, not temporary residents, cannot use the sports pools and must pay an added guest fee at the courses. For all other recreational activities you'd have the same rights as the residents. You cannot access the club pools at Hacienda Hills, Cane Garden, Glenview or Orange Blossom without paying a priority membership fee. That can be arranged for temporary residents but worth it only if you play a really large amount of golf or want to do laps daily in the sports pools.

I am not aware that as a temporary Resident my husband and I can purchase a priority membership for several of the golf courses. Is there a website where I can find more information on this?

Default Temp Res ID

owner of the property needs to surrender their ID cards in order for renter to get Temporary Resident ID. Do not confuse with Guest ID. Only good if you play a lot of golf then you get the resident rate.

CTgolfer.
Regarding your question of where to go for info. re priority golf for temporary residents. Here's the link, but the least time you can get is for 6 months. I've had 3 month renters who did this since he played so much golf.

Two ID cards, one male, one female will probably always be provided since most owners are couples. And since most renters are also couples, that's what's they expect.

You're paying the bill, no reason you should receive less.
