RV Golf Club Offers Free Camping

Every day thousands of RV owners spend upward of $60 a night at RV parks across the country only to endure excessive noise, overcrowded sites, and out-dated facilities, said Jim Vernes, owner of RV Golf Club (RVGC), in a news release.

RV Golf CardRVers can park for FREE at a beautiful golf course or resort with access to all the amenities, be treated like members, and receive discounts on dining, shopping, and health spas.

“The thing I like most about RV Golf Club is you can save $30 to $60 a night on RV parking. I would use that money to have dinner in the clubhouse, so it’s like I enjoy a free meal every night,” said Doug Dulac, an RV owner from Las Vegas.

RV Golf Club has assembled the locations of hundreds of golf courses and high-end resorts around the United States and Canada that are welcoming RV owners—and the RVers don’t have to be golfers to get involved.

“We currently have 334 properties, some of the Top 100 and Top 50 courses in the nation, along with several luxury resorts with world-class accommodations,” said Vernes, who noted more are coming on board every week.

For a small member fee, RVers can save thousands of dollars while enjoying beautiful, un-crowded surroundings that have not previously been available to them.

An annual RV Golf Club membership allows you to combine four favorite past times: traveling, golfing, dining, and shopping.

The membership qualifies you for FREE RV parking, plus “Members” discounts on green fees, food and beverages, golf shop merchandise, and other services provided by the golf course and restaurant owners and operators.

The overnight parking at golf courses is for self contained RVs for one evening and does NOT include hookups. You are welcome to check with the golf course about staying an additional night. Engage in some commerce and they would be delighted to have you stay (space available).

As an RV Owner you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

Overnight parking at the RVGC golf courses and Resort Hotels, plus 2-nights parking at RV Resorts is free. You are welcome to stay at each golf course as often as you like, as long as you are spending money there and free at each RV resort twice.

You receive membership discounts on green fees, food, beverages, and merchandise in the shops and services at most RVGC golf courses and RV Resorts.

Golf courses and RV Resorts offer peaceful, quiet, and secure settings.

The landscaping is elaborate so you’ll probably find yourself smelling the roses.

It’s a pleasure to be within walking distance to golfing, dining, shopping, and services such as massages and golf lessons.

I played as much golf as I could in North Dakota, but summer up there is pretty short.  It usually falls on Tuesday.

Lake Havasu Motorcoach Resort Approved

Mohave County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a zoning use permit for a 107-space, 84-acre luxury motorcoach resort project at The Refuge Golf & Country Club in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

The measure allows The Refuge golf course owners, longtime Havasu residents Jerry and Cindy Aldridge, to move ahead on construction of a project they first envisioned and presented to the county in 2009.

Nestled on the banks of Lake Havasu the Motorcoach Resort at the Refuge Golf & Country Club sits on 170 acres on the north-end of Lake Havasu City adjacent to Havasu National Wildlife Refuge.

Featuring an 18-hole golf course, The Refuge Luxury Motorcoach Resort, is a $17 million development. With only 107 sites, the resort design maintains the elegant, country club feel Refuge members have always prized, according to a news release.

The Aldridges have previously completed the 18-hole golf course, negative-edge resort pool, fitness center, Pilates/Yoga room, state-of-the-art pro shop, a 300-seat event pavilion, spa treatment rooms, and Clubhouse restaurant, lounge, and piano bar that hums both day and night.

On the social side, The Refuge offers wine tastings, live music and entertainment, crafts, karaoke, game nights, member events, golf tournaments, and clinics, tours of the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, dances, and casino tours.

“I founded Coach Net Roadside Assistance in one of the most beautiful resort destinations in the Southwest, Jerry Aldridge said in a news release.

“Now, Cindy and I are taking our award-winning customer service skills to a new level with a luxury RV destination unrivaled in the resort industry.”

The Refuge Golf and Country Club

The Motorcoach Resort is scheduled for completion in October.

Motorcoach owners who enjoy golf and the country club lifestyle are invited to come now to tour the facility, play a round of golf using our Member-for-a-Day package, and preview the Club’s amenities. Onsite, overnight parking is available.

The Refuge Golf and Country Club is easily accessible, situated along the Colorado River and Lake Havasu.

The property is located between I-10 and I-40 off Highway 95 in western Arizona, just 30 miles from the California border.

During the county supervisors’ general meeting in Kingman, five proponents of the project addressed the supervisors, and 11 people spoke in opposition of the project, Today’s News-Herald reported.

Those in favor cited reasons of business growth, increased property valuations, and golf course property improvements.

Those opposed cited reasons of decreased property valuations, a down-sized golf course with no ties to Arnold Palmer’s original design, and increased traffic, noise, and crime.

Also during the meeting, Nick Hont, director of county development services, said the flood plain has recently been recalculated with updated technology showing the area of the RV spaces could be removed from the flood plain.

The findings currently are being submitted to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for review. The current flood plain is thought to manage a 100-year flood storm event, but new calculations show it’s more relevant for a 500-year flood storm event.

Hont also said the property’s original U.S. Army Corps of Engineers drainage study from 2002 is still valid since no grading or topography of the property has been changed.

I tried real hard to play golf, and I was so bad at it they would have to check me for ticks at the end of the round because I’d spent about half the day in the woods.
