Rental FAQ

What makes renting at Grandfather unique?

Grandfather Club Properties (GCP) manages rental properties which are Member-owned residences. The availability of these properties is dependent upon the owners making their property available when they are not in residence. The nature of our rental program sets Grandfather apart from other clubs in that our program has been developed first and foremost for the convenience of our Members. As a result, bookings during our peak months of July and August can be very limited. We do offer a waiting list for sponsored guests who wish to rent and we will notify you if a property becomes available. 

Q: When can I book a reservation for the next season?

A: The availability of the rental properties is 100% dependent upon Members making their property available when they are not in residence. We generally receive owner availability calendars by February 15th each year. This means that Grandfather Club Properties typically cannot begin booking reservations until March of each year, depending on when the owners notify us of their schedule, however, we are able to accept requests at any time. Please note, if a rental property is listed for sale, Grandfather Club Properties can typically book a reservation no more than 6-8 weeks in advance of your arrival.

Q: Are there special requirements for renting at GGCC?

A: A rental guest must be sponsored by a member of Grandfather Golf and Country Club before making a rental reservation. Once a renter identifies his/her sponsor, the member will be contacted to confirm the rental sponsorship.

Q: Are there any limits on the number of stays a renter can book?

A: Renting at Grandfather Golf and Country Club is an ideal way to learn more about the Club. Because Grandfather is a private Club, a rental guest, including registered occupants, are limited to booking a reservation through Grandfather Club Properties for no more than two rental stays. Grandfather Club Properties or Grandfather Golf and Country Club staff are happy to meet with rental guests to explore membership opportunities.

Q: How do I book a reservation?

A: Upon a specific rental request, the owner will be contacted to confirm the availability of the dates requested. Once the owner has confirmed the availability, then the reservation may be booked. For the reservation to be confirmed, we do require a signed lease agreement with all registered guests above the age of 18 along with a member sponsor confirmation.

Q: May I play golf and use the Club’s amenities when renting?

A: Other than golf, a Guest Privilege Account card is required in order to have access to and pay for various Club amenities.
