Dear Member,

As promised in our previous correspondence, we are providing the next stage of re-openings. All of these re-openings are the result of detailed discussions with the Board and Club Senior Management. In concert with Monroe County’s directive and the Governor’s Orders, the Club will open the Inn and Marina to reservations tomorrow for stays beginning June 1st. Reservations will be accepted for Members only – no guests at this time. The Club will take a conservative approach as it relates to capacity in all of the areas listed below. The health and safety of all of our Members and Associates is our paramount concern.

Also, to further ensure we do not overburden our operations, initially we will continue the current practice of NOT issuing any Guest Cards for Members and there will be no conference groups in June. Our focus as a Management Team will remain on providing the best and safest experience we can for all of our Members.

At the Front Gate and in the areas that are re-opening, we will also be providing each Member a copy of our new protocols, guidelines and best practices. We ask for everyone’s support of these new protocols and there will be zero tolerance when it comes to the health and safety of our Club community.

We are pleased that more amenities and services are becoming available for all Members to enjoy. We are hopeful that adherence to our safety protocols will enable us to increase the capacity over time at each amenity.

THE INN

Beginning June 1st, Monroe County will allow lodging establishments, with the exception of Vacation Rentals, to reopen at 50% capacity.  The Club is currently planning to re-open but during the first few weeks, we will limit occupancy below 50%. This will ensure we are maintaining our compliance with important sanitation procedures as directed by the American Hotel and Lodging Association COVID-19 guidelines, click here to review. This will also keep from overcrowding our restaurants and amenities currently operating with less seating. As we move closer to July, we expect to slowly increase our capacity. Vacation Rentals can also take reservations but ONLY for Long Term Rentals (stays of 28 days or more). Monroe County has not authorized short term stays through Vacation Rentals at this time.

Reservations for Inn rooms are open from 8am – 5pm daily by calling 1-800-741-7333.

BUCCANEER ISLAND

Access to Buccaneer Island including the beach area and pools will re-open on June 1st to Members only. Please bring your Membership Cards as we will have our Membership Team there to welcome everyone back to Buccaneer Island and answer any questions.

Buccaneer Island will be open daily from 9am – 7pm. After 7pm, the pools will close and we will clear the areas for proper cleaning and sanitation. The Hot Tub will remain closed until further notice.

Due to social distancing guidelines and best practices, and for the safety of all Members and Associates, we will not have our usual compliment of lounge chairs available. Beach and pool deck areas will be set with a significantly reduced number of lounge chairs. We have designed the space to accommodate 300 lounge chairs which is approximately 45% of our normal capacity. Members are asked to leave pool chairs in their assigned locations, and not move equipment around the facility.  Please ask a Recreation Attendant should you have any questions while there. There is a high probability that we will not be able to accommodate all Members who go to Buccaneer Island. We ask that all Members be respectful of each other and our Associates during this challenging period.

In a continued effort to safeguard the entire community by reducing touch points, everyone is asked to please return all pool towels. We will have additional bins available.

Organized Children’s activities are not being scheduled at this time, and we look forward to resuming those at a later date. A limited supply of Aquatic Rentals will be available and the Playground will be open. The Playground will be disinfected three times daily, with Disinfectant wipes there as well.

As we are following State and County Executive Orders, Beach Bar will NOT be available for anyone to sit at or order drinks from directly. We will have Food and Beverage servers available to take care of all orders.  The Bar will only be used to service our Associates so they can deliver to you. Food will be available daily until 5pm and Beverages until 6:30pm.

MARINA

The Marina will re-open to Social Members beginning June 1st with reservations being accepted beginning today.

SPA – MASSAGES

The Spa will add Massage to the list of available services. Reservations open on Thursday, May 28 for appointments beginning on Tuesday, June 2nd.

​For a recap of the Club outlets currently open as a part of our Phase One plan please click here. The Club will continue to slowly open amenities and services, while following the directives from the State and Monroe County. Our approach will maintain the safety of our Members and Associates as our first priority.

We are very excited about the re-opening of our Club for all Members. We are hopeful over the upcoming months that we will gradually be able to resume full Club services. This of course will depend on a variety of factors within and outside of our control.

Many of you have called and emailed your suggestions, thank you for sharing your ideas with us. They have been helpful in designing our re-opening plans.
