Grefe: Opposed to sharing RCSCW with outsiders


Sun City West clubs are for its members.

Our rec fees pay for the use and maintenance of our properties’ use by the clubs and members. I’m not for sharing our clubs and facilities with non-members. I’m told that Sun City wants to join Sun City West because their facilities are in poor shape.   

The problem with some of the Sun City West clubs is their fees, a new member needs to pay upfront. I’m not a softball player, but I did watch them play, and said I could play as good as they played. However, I needed to pay $150 to join, plus buy equipment. If the Softball club wants more Sun City West members, they need to change their fees. 

Look at Sun City West Greenteam for Sun City West members who want to try golf. Their membership cost is free, they have free equipment, free lesson and tee time with another lower skilled player. Members just pay the green fees. If more clubs would be like this, they would have more members, not just the die hards.

I also looked at the Metal Club and Woodworking Club, both have large fees to try/join, so I did not join.

If the clubs need more members, they need to look at why the Sun City West members are not joining.
