With all that’s going on around us and in the world, renewing a golf priority membership doesn’t seem to qualify for a spot very high on a list of problems. But if that’s OP’s biggest concern, IMHO he should feel very blessed.

If someone is so put out by the three payment options given, don't become a priority member, pay the full resident green fees, don't participate in men's/ladies day, and sit at the bottom of the heap for tee time reservations. Your choice. Yet another first world problem here in TV
I play twice a week. Let's say I actually try to play twice a week (2nd wave) and have a year priority membership. For the past 4 years I have averaged playing just over 80 times a year with the highest year being 84.
For simple math $800 for membership divided by 80 is $10 / round.
We have 2 seasons.
The 5 month winter season I save $7/round
The 7 month summer fall season I pay $3.00 / round more than the resident fee. Check the sheet. The $31.03 really costs $41.00.
Yea you get better tee times but do you need them really. If it's the money a 6 month membership makes more sence.

At least they let you know your membership was expiring. For trail fees and non-owner ID cards you don't find out until after they expire and you try to use them.

Just as the “drunks” drink only water when out for dinner, to cut down on the check amount , All for me , None for thee.

It depends on whether your talking 9 or 18 holes. Also, which wave you play, as there are three different waves during the day with three different pricing structures. During the summer, afternoon wave for nine holes saves you $3.50 for the round with a priority membership. Jan thru April this year would have saved you $8.50 for nine holes (double those amounts for 18). Next, depends on whether you are paying for a single or double membership (although you did indicate a double), and how many courses you want access to. Also, you have to keep in mind your overall budget for golf. Priority members I know seem to ignore the fact that you still have to pay for playing, even if it's discounted. If you take into account, both the first and latter part of the year rates, a priority member is paying an average of $17 for nine holes of golf in the afternoon. A non-member is paying an average of $23 for nine holes, afternoon wave. In addition to that, you now have to pay the sales tax, which adds a couple of bucks, and you also have to add the cost of the priority membership itself. The other thing you need to consider is weather permitting and if you end up with an injury or something else that restricts you from playing. I have a friend with a priority membership who hurt his foot and has not been able to play for the last six months. I've been told there are accommodations for that, but nevertheless, he had to pay the priority membership fee up front (which is about the same amount I pay annually for auto insurance). Lastly, I've been here six years and have never had an issue getting tee time on a championship course without a membership. Not so with executive courses during the height of the season, so I tend to play more championship courses in the winter months. Personally, I did not find the priority membership worth it for me, but that's something you have to determine for yourself....and that's all I have to say about that.

Priority comes with the pool membership. We have our own pool and have to pay for the pool membership which is never used.

Yes, it does come with Priority membership. If you are married and only you play golf, you can go to the Country Club pools, but your spouse cannot unless you pay the extra $80.00 for the additional pool membership for them.

Yes it does. I renewed my husband's priority on Tuesday and the pools are included along with the trail fees for executive golf.

You get access to pools at the following country clubs which other residents do not have access to is the way I understand it.

Cane Garden Pool / open 9am – sunset.
Evans Prairie Pool / open 9am – sunset.
Glenview Champions Pool & Jacuzzi / open 9am – 9pm.
Havana Pool / open 9am – sunset.
Mallory Hill Pool / open 9am – sunset.
Nancy Lopez Legacy Pool & Pool Bar / open 9am – sunset.
