What is The Owners Club?

The Owners Club is a vacation home membership concept that provides a unique, cost-effective alternative to conventional second home ownership. The "membership home" concept offers fractional ownership of private luxury vacation homes with club membership privileges in some of the most desirable vacation destinations. Members also enjoy reciprocal privileges at affiliate Owners Clubs, present and future. And because The Owners Club is affiliated with ClubCorp, members also receive associate club membership privileges at nearly 170 ClubCorp country clubs, 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 provided a vacation "home away from home." ClubCorp asked members what they wanted when it came to second home ownership, vacations and active retirement. They answered that they wanted the services and amenities of the private club experience while they were on vacation. They wanted the privacy of a single-family, detached home. They wanted the investment value of deeded ownership. They also wanted the flexibility of having more frequent (often briefer) vacations in private, single-family accommodations in a variety of exquisite destinations. 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 – an investment with real value. 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 or more days each year. Owners have priority at their home club, but they also enjoy reciprocal privileges at affiliate Owners Clubs, present and future. As an added benefit, they also receive associate membership at nearly 170 ClubCorp country clubs, athletic and city clubs around the world.

Why is The Owners Club a more sensible option than buying a conventional vacation home?

With your Owners Club membership, you buy a fraction of a well-appointed private home that includes the benefits of belonging to an exclusive club community with amenities and personal concierge service not available to conventional homeowners. This is a smart investment because most people today use a vacation home on only holidays or long weekends. As a member you have the luxury of deciding the length of each stay in your "home away from home," be it a long weekend, a few days or a week or two at a time. The Owners Club takes care of maintaining the properties to ClubCorp standards of excellence, with none of the expenses and headaches of owning and maintaining a conventional second home. 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, single family, 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-bedroom, three-bath homes ranging from 2,000 to 2,700 square feet in size. Homes are fully furnished with high-end furniture and finishes, and they include amenities such as two master bedrooms, big-screen TVs, washers and dryers. Every home has a balcony or patio to enjoy the exquisite views.

What kinds of amenities and services are offered?

The Owners Club does it the way you would do it if you could, which enables you to enjoy the leisure time without having to do errands or 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 such as golf, kids’ clubs and more can be reserved in advance so that you can really make the most of your vacation time.
