Members are required to give written notice of change in mailing or e-mail address to which communications should be directed. Any new Full Club, Executive, Senior or Student memberships are subject to a $500.00 Commitment Fee upon joining. Initiation fees will be waived for any new member (Full, Senior, Executive or Student) that joins the Beau Rivage Golf Club on or before January 10, 2016.

Cart Operation: The operator of any cart used for course play must have a valid driver’s license and is required to sign the Starter’s Log prior to teeing off. At Beau Rivage, all members are required to play using the 90° Rule at all times unless otherwise specified by the Golf Shop (Cart Path Only on specific holes due to rain, maintenance projects, etc.). Ride the path until reaching your next shot, then drive in a straight line directly to your ball. Exit fairways on the same path that you entered. Beau Rivage requires that all players stay away from bare spots in the turf and keep out of the woods. Carts should always remain on the path near all tee boxes and putting surfaces at all times. All Par 3 Holes (#4, #5, #12 and #15) are Cart Path Only. Any damages inflicted on a cart as a result of member misuse may result in repair fees or, depending on circumstances of the damage (and at the sole discretion of management), loss of membership good-standing. Beau Rivage recognizes that some players have limitations that make it difficult to walk long distances during a round. Customized Member Handicap Placards and Handicap Cart Flags are offered for those who provide a valid doctor’s note.

Course Etiquette: The game of golf relies on the integrity of the individual player to show consideration for others and to abide by the rules. Members are required to conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times. Club Members must always be aware of others in their group, others on the course and themselves and should never take any action that could endanger anyone. Members should also do anything possible to leave the course the way it was found by filling divots, raking sand traps and repairing ball marks on putting surfaces. USGA Rules apply at all times unless otherwise stated. Appropriate course attire consists of a collared/golf shirt and no denim. To help preserve the quality of course conditions, only soft-spikes or soft-sole shoes should be worn during play. Personal coolers and glass bottles specifically are not permitted on the golf course or Beau Rivage grounds at any time. Groups of five or more players are not permitted to play on the golf course at any time . For safety purposes, no activity other than golf is permitted on the golf course.

Please contact the Golf Shop directly at (910) 392-9021 should you see any suspicious activities occuring on golf course property.

Golf Handicap: The purpose of a Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable for golfers by providing a means of measuring one’s performance and progress by establishing a Handicap Index. This index enables golfers of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis. To play in any competitive member golf events at Beau Rivage, it is essential that each player conform to the responsibilities outlined in the Beau Rivage Golf Club Handicap Policy.

Golf Outings: Beau Rivage hosts a wide variety of golf outings and events throughout the year and reserves the right to charge additional fees (eg. Tournament, Shotgun Fees) on top of existing member golf fees or annual trail plans. A full list of scheduled 2016 golf events can be found online at

Good Standing: To maintain good-standing, a primary member is required to keep their account current and adhere to all membership terms and conditions. Primary members, account dependents and their guests are required to conduct themselves in a respectful manner while using the facilities. Any member that infringes upon any term or guidelines will at first offense be given a verbal warning, at second offense be given a written notice of infringement and at third offense be subject to suspension (non-refunable) of membership and all of the entitlements. At fourth offense, the member will be subject to a non-refundable forfeiture of membership. Beau Rivage reserves the right to suspend or terminate any club membership that, in its discretion, fails to meet these criteria.

Loyalty Rewards: Golf club and resort members are automatically set-up to enjoy Beau Rivage’s Member Loyalty Rewards Program. Rather than enforcing a monthly spending minimum, this program is designed to reward member support by providing spending incentives. In 2016, club and resort members will receive one (1) Loyalty Point per $1.00 spent at Beau Rivage on food and beverage and select merchandise. Every 500 points earned may be redeemed for a $25 BR Gift Card valid on any purchases around the resort. Referring a new club member to join at Beau Rivage will create extra rewards.

Referrals must provide the current member’s account number on their application to qualify.

Membership Cards: Each primary member, spouse and account dependent is required to have a picture identification taken for their membership card. Embedded with an account number, member cards are used to process applicable discounts for preferred pricing, accumulate loyalty points on sales and track spending when used at clubhouse sales registers. Membership cards may also be used for charging payments to your club account (credit card on-file required). This service is offered at no charge and can be set-up or cancelled at any time. Members are required to carry their cards at all times while using the facilities and display them to the staff any time a transaction is made. Cards may only be used by the person to whom they are issued. In the event that a card is misplaced, a replacement may be provided for a $10.00 fee. All membership cards expire on January 1, 2017.

Medical Leave: Any excused Medical Absence (sixty days or more) of a Club Member will be adjusted or credited toward the future by Beau Rivage management staff.

Pace of Play: The USGA estimated time of completion for 18 holes by a foursome is four hours and thirty minutes. Pace of play is monitored by the Golf Shop, Course Starters and Course Ambassadors to ensure an enjoyable golfing experience for all players. Any golfers falling behind pace may be asked (via staff or GPS dashboard messages) to keep up with the group ahead or allow groups to play through. Helpful pace of play tips can be found online at

Payment Terms: Any club or resort membership may be paid for in-full upon signing (ask about up-front payment incentives). Monthly terms are reserved for Golf Club (Single, Couple, Family, Senior, Executive, Student, Junior) and Resort memberships only. Dues are payable on the 1st of every calendar month and must be received by the 10th to avoid any late fees ($25.00). Accounts more than 30 days late without any notification to the club will suffer a loss of good-standing and the primary member will be billed as public for all rounds played and purchases made, including those from the start of the month, until the account becomes current. Once an account loses good-standing, it forfeits any perks due and is deactivated. There is a $100 account re-activation fee. To free members from the hassle of writing checks, making extra trips to the clubhouse or worrying about late fees, Beau Rivage offers the convenience of automatic monthly payments. When set up, dues are charged on the 1st of each month using a credit card held on file. This free additional service is optional and may be started or cancelled at any time. Any charges to a member account must be signed at the time of sale and will be paid monthly with a credit card on-file. Any member tabs that are left open overnight in The Veranda will automatically be charged to credit card on-file with an 18% gratuity.

Pool Guidelines: Members are required to display their identifcation cards to the pool attendant upon entering the swimming facilities. Golf Club and Resort members may receive unlimited daily guest passes to the pool but must accompany guests while using the amenities. Seasonal pass holders may bring guests to the pool for half-off the daily public fee ($5.00 per person). Children under the age of 14 need to be supervised by an adult at all times. Personal coolers or glass bottles are not permitted inside the pool facilities at any time. BEAU RIVAGE DOES NOT EMPLOY LIFEGUARDS. MEMBERS AND GUESTS SWIM AT THEIR OWN RISK.

Preferred Pricing: Golf Club and Full Resort members are entitled to preferred pricing (15% discount on select merchandise, food and beverage purchases, clubhouse suites and private event tickets/rentals). Member discounts are not applicable toward alcohol sales or in combination with any promotional rates. It is important to display membership cards for every transaction to ensure the proper discounts are applied and that member loyalty points are accrued.

Range Options: Club members are privy to two different half-price driving range options. Members may purchase tokens for 50% off the public price ($3 for small bucket, $5 for large bucket). Club Members may also choose buy a pre-purchased Range Pass for 50% off the public price ($300.00 for 200 small range buckets).

Tee Times: Golf club members are reserved the right to book tee times up to four weeks in advance. Tee times may be booked in the Golf Shop, over the phone or online by visiting When reserving tee times, members should provide as much information as possible (names of other players or guests in a group, using a private cart, etc.) to ensure a faster check-in process on the day of play. For the sake of maintaining an enjoyable pace of play for all, each tee time block is limited to no more than four players. Multiple blocks (any group larger than a foursome) may be reserved by a member if that person is making arrangements on behalf of the group. Individual players must confirm their own spots in the group by 12:00 p.m. the day before or they may be released to the public. Members that need to cancel a round must notify the Golf Shop to avoid wasted tee times that may have otherwise been used. All no-shows are recorded throughout the year. Habitual member no-shows may result in a loss of member good-standing.

Trail Plans: Annual plans allow members to enjoy unlimited rounds of golf with waived payment of daily fees. They also provide the option of using privately-owned cart on the golf course once it has been fully registered with the club. Any full club member with five consecutive years good-standing that turns 80 years old will be entitled to a free Single Trail Plan for life so long as the membership account remains current and they remain a member in good-standing.
