The Articles of Incorporation were prepared by the original developer at PGA WEST in 1985. They establish the entity of the PGA WEST Master Association.
Bylaws are the guidelines for operating the Master Association. The Bylaws define the duties of the Board of Directors, the homeowner’s voting rights, required meetings and notices of meetings, and other specific items necessary to run the Master Association as a business. Unlike CC&Rs and Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws are not recorded or filed with any government agency.
Rules and Regulations provide usage restrictions relating to alterations, signage, waste disposal, parking, pets, vehicular traffic and other concerns. The Rules and Regulations may add to the CC&Rs but must not be in conflict with them. Unlike CC&Rs and Articles of Incorporation, Rules and Regulations do not need to be filed or recorded with any governmental agency.(Updated February 23, 2017)
