What is The Owners Club?
This vacation home membership concept provides a unique, cost-effective alternative to conventional second-home ownership. It offers fractional ownership of private luxury vacation homes with Club membership privileges in some of the most desirable destinations. Members also enjoy reciprocal privileges at affiliate Owners Clubs. And because The Owners Club is affiliated with ClubCorp, members also receive associate Club membership privileges at nearly 170 country, business and sports clubs and golf resorts around the world.
Why was The Owners Club created?
The Owners Club was established by ClubCorp in 1994 as a membership Club that provides a vacation "home away from home." ClubCorp asked Members what they wanted when it came to second-home ownership, vacations and active retirement. They responded with private club services and amenities while they are on vacation, the privacy of a single-family, detached home, the investment value of deeded ownership and the flexibility of having more frequent vacations. Hence the creation of The Owners Club, the "vacation country club."
What is the concept of member ownership?
As a member of The Owners Club, you own part of a private vacation home. Most are single-family homes with only 13 members, and each development has a small number of homes, which creates an exclusive community environment among residents. Members can share their vacation experience with family, friends and business associates for 27 days each year.
Why is The Owners Club a more sensible option than buying a traditional vacation home?
Most people use a vacation home only during holidays or long weekends. As a Owners Club Member, you have the luxury of deciding the length of each stay. The Owners Club takes care of maintaining the properties to ClubCorp's standards of excellence, without the expenses and headaches of owning and maintaining a conventional second home. And because members enjoy reciprocal privileges at affiliate Owners Club properties, it’s actually like having several vacation homes, plus private club memberships for a fraction of what a single home would cost.
Why is The Owners Club a better option than renting or staying at a hotel on your vacation?
You stay in a private, well-appointed home. When you become a Member, you are investing in an asset that can be passed down to your children. The Owners Club is not a lodging experience, it’s a resort/club experience in a private vacation home. There is also tremendous flexibility in the length of the stay; you choose when you want to go and how long you want to stay. As a member, another advantage is that you can get to know your neighbors as they return year after year because The Owners Club is a community of members.
What does a typical home look like?
The Owners Club homes are detached, single-family, two or three-bedroom, three-bath homes ranging from 2,000 to 2,700 sq. ft. Homes are fully furnished and include amenities such as two master bedrooms, flat-screen TVs, washers and dryers. Every home has a balcony or patio to enjoy the exquisite views.
What amenities and services are offered?
The Owners Club enables you to enjoy leisure time without having to run errands or spend time on home maintenance. For instance: you may call ahead to the concierge with a shopping list so your refrigerator is stocked when you arrive; the Club can arrange private valet airport transportation; and planned activities can be reserved in advance, so you can really make the most of your vacation time.
