HOA “Government”
    HOA Owner Rights
The HOA “movement” began in
the late 1960’s as a way to get
around civil-rights laws. Now,
HOA member discrimination is
“hidden in plain sight.” HOA’s
promise environmental-controls,
security & amenities. But, HOA
laws are a set-up for abuse-of
power & rule-by-a-few.

Members Have Been Duped & De-Frauded In the 90’s, instead of making decisive moves to increase income and decrease expenses, or re-configuring the golf course, those in- power chose to tap the easiest, most-readily-available source of funds:  Member Dues.  This bail-out became known as the “Golf Subsidy.”  Dubious justifications were used to make members acquiesce.  Because of the control over HVLA held by those in-power, members did not resist.  These small-power-groups have continued to control Boards and Staff, and have continued to promulgate the same justifications, e.g., “Views” magazine, May, June, July 2018. From 2001 to 2019, golf course losses averaged $560,000 per year -- 19 year total of about $10,000,000. Two Golf Consults were done in 2015. Member sentiment against “subsidies” was rising.  Both consults concluded the course had been mismanaged in all aspects.  They gave numerous recommendations.  Most notably, a “Business Plan” was advised.  To date, no Business Plan has been done. From 2000 to 2019, the Golf Ops. began to receive copious funding, yearly.  Meanwhile non-golf amenities received token funding and withered.  The Community Center (home of the “Teen Center”) was uninhabitable and demolished in 2017.  No plans so far to rebuild.  Lake de-siltation was proposed many times over the past 20 years but never done.  The Equestrian Center deteriorated to a deplorable state before getting repairs.  Many requests for upgrades and repairs to childrens’ play equipment has gone unheeded. Yet, a multi-million-dollar plan to rebuild the Club House has been advanced 3 times! “Golf Memberships” and general usage of the course have fallen.  Those in-charge of the course have continuously avoided issuing ongoing or long-term details of rounds-played or solid evidence of marketing results or of cost-reduction strategies.  Today, between 5- 10% of ALL Assn. members play golf.
