Big Canoe® Real Estate | North Georgia Mountains | Big Canoe® Amenity Fees
Big Canoe® Amenity Fees

The Big Canoe® Community sells no outside memberships. The only way to become a member is to become a property owner.

At Big Canoe®, if you don't use the amenities, you don't pay for them. You can either purchase a membership for one or several of the amenities or purchase a day pass.


Introduction
Membership in the amenities will be offered in five categories: Golf, Non-Peak Golf, Golf Driving Range, Tennis, Fitness, Swim, and Fishing. You may join one, two, three, four, or all of the amenities.


Fee Schedule
Amenity fees, along with charges for additional services that you have used, will be billed to your POA account on a monthly basis with the exception of swim which will be billed annually. Once you join, your account will be charged the appropriate monthly or annual fees unless you "resign" from the amenity(s) you have joined. Joining an amenity creates a twelve-month obligation to pay the monthly fees and the membership cannot be canceled until after the first anniversary. As a special incentive, when you join golf, tennis and fitness all at one time you become a "Medallion Member" and receive a 10% discount off the total fees (swim and fishing may also be included for the discount).
