The following article is a reblog from the “A Community Together (ACT)” website (the old “ArrowCreek Truth” site)… You should be warned that it contains some significant “miss-information” and may cause old negative feelings to re-surface. So much for “working together.” It is being published here for review and comment since that site censors and does exactly what it accuses this site of doing.
For your information, this article looks like an embellishment of other writings by the two named men. Paul had resigned from the Reserve Fund Committee prior to the February 16 Board meeting (and the ArrowCreek Club Community Committee was disbanded last December when the golf course land purchase was terminated). Sam had already resigned from the ACHOA board and his committee assignments, so this article is not totally factual given its date of February 16. Both men had worked very hard to make the purchase happen. The “new” header on the “new” website is also misleading in that it shows two signs: one is the sign at the entrance to the driveway to the club with the old name – not the new name with the current owners – and the other sign is for the residents’ club driveway. The ACT may have changed their name (as announced at the February 16 ACHOA BOD meeting), but they certainly still try to give the impression that they are sanctioned by both HOA and club. That isn’t true either. Working together is honorable. Tit for tat is not. – The ArrowCreek411 Webmaster

ACHOA/Golf Club Collaboration
Posted on February 16, 2016 by ACommunityTeam
Thank you to Paul Burkett, member of the ACHOA Reserve Fund committee and the ArrowCreek Club Community Committee, and Sam Fox, former HOA president, for writing this document about collaboration between the ACHOA and TCAC.
The ArrowCreek Homeowners Association, Inc. (ACHOA) Board of Directors and the management at The Club at ArrowCreek have always been committed to finding synergetic operations that support the success of both organizations. It has always been in the best interest of the ACHOA to have a strong financially viable golf operation operating within the borders of the community. The ACHOA Board recognizes that over 370 social and golf members (out of 619 TCAC members in all) of The Club at ArrowCreek (TCAC) are also members of the ACHOA community and that the two organizations share many common goals that will enhance the ArrowCreek Community Experience.
Over the years many joint arrangements have been implemented between the two independent organizations. These activities continue today and some are recognized with the ACHOA’s CC&R’s. The following easement arrangements recognize the joint cooperation between the entities:
- Easements through the golf course for ACHOA staff to access common area water drainage, retention areas and fire mitigation areas.
- Easements through the ACHOA Common area for TCAC staff to access golf course areas for maintenance, replacement, irrigation repairs and fire mitigation.
- Easements for ACHOA access to its Maintenance Building through one gate providing improved security.
- Easements for TCAC staff to access the grey water pump house for golf course irrigation and repairs.
- Gate access for TCAC non-resident members and guests. This includes tournament player access to the courses as well.
Over the years many shared services between the two independent organizations have also been implemented to the benefit both organizations.
- TCAC sells the ACHOA gasoline for the ACHOA maintenance equipment at TCAC wholesale cost lowering ACHOA expenses. In addition, the ACHOA does not need to haul gasoline from the valley floor to the maintenance area.
- TCAC provides mechanical repairs to the ACHOA maintenance equipment at a discounted price which is 20% below the services from outside vendors. This has lowered ACHOA expenses.
- TCAC has agreed to allow the ACHOA’s snow removal contractor vendor to park and service their snow removal equipment in the TCAC maintenance yard in return for TCAC parking lot snow removal services.
- TCAC has allowed the ACHOA to store certain landscape maintenance equipment within the TCAC maintenance building during the winter season.
- The ACHOA has allowed the TCAC summer youth program to have access to ACHOA tennis, swimming and resident center access. Most of the youth participants are ACHOA member children but it does include grandchildren and resident tenants (renters) of the ACHOA.
- The ACHOA allows TCAC members to drive golf carts on the ACHOA walking paths to gain access to the golf facilities.
- The ACHOA has responsibility to provide security and assist the TCAC concerning unauthorized access to 524 acres of land by non-TCAC members as per the CC&Rs. Access to the TCAC private land by ACHOA members and resulting damage is a shared responsibility of the parties.
- The ACHOA periodically rented TCAC for special community events like the Christmas Party. The costs for such an event were at a discounted price and some of the costs were offset by the above shared services.
- The ACHOA used the large dining room at the TCAC for free for multiple meetings that the Residents’ Club couldn’t handle due to the size of the crowd.
There are several other areas that may present themselves over the coming years for both shared arrangement and services within the community. Both organizations benefit from these relationships and they will help both be successful into the future.
