How Do I?

The Master Association is responsible for six manned and three unmanned entry gates, security within the PGA WEST community, and landscaping of PGA Boulevard and areas along the exterior walls surrounding PGA WEST.

The Master Association consists of all property owners within PGA WEST. Each property owner is a member of the Master Association. The Master Association Board of Directors consists of property owners who have been elected to conduct the day-to-day business of the Master Association and make the decisions that affect all owners.

Every property owner at PGA WEST is a member of the PGA WEST Master Association — and also a member of one of the residential homeowners associations.

The PGA WEST Master Association was created for the purpose of managing common services that encompass the entire community — for example, managing the entry gates into the private residential communities at PGA WEST. The Master Association works closely with the three residential homeowners associations and The Club at PGA WEST to promote safe and secure neighborhoods within PGA WEST — and to promote orderly development within the community.

Residential Association II (637 homes), 760-776-5100

We have a management company that provides day-to-day operational and strategic support. They are The Management Trust, Monarch Group Division, based in Palm Desert.

Articles of Incorporation: 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.

CC&Rs: The Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions are the governing legal documents that set up the guidelines for the operation of the Master Association. They were recorded by the County recorder’s office and are included in the title to your property.

Bylaws: 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: 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.

Annual Budget: The Master Association’s Annual Budget is a projection of the money needed to cover our yearly operating expenses and provide adequate reserves for repair and replacement of the property we maintain. We update our budget annually each fall for the following calendar year.

Audited Financial Statement: Each year, a Certified Public Account performs an extensive audit of the Master Association’s financial records and issues a statement as to their compliance with generally accepted accounting principles.

Reserve Study: In order to maintain and preserve market values of common area property, the Master Association develops funding plans for future repair or replacement of streets, fencing, walls, signs, landscaping, and much more. Our reserve study provides guidance on how much the Master Association should be putting aside each month for reserves so it can meet the future obligations described above without requiring special assessments.

All Board meetings are open to all PGA WEST homeowners, except for Executive Sessions held to discuss personnel, confidential or sensitive information. Regularly scheduled monthly meetings are shown on this website's Calendar, four days before the meeting, and a printed copy of the agenda is also available four days before each regularly scheduled Board meeting, at the Master Association's office at the Weiskopf Residential Gate: 56144 PGA Blvd. Notice of annual or other special meetings may also be sent by US Mail. Minutes of the Board meetings are posted on our website after they are approved, which generally occurs at the following monthly meeting.

Committee meetings are open to PGA WEST homeowners. Their meeting schedules can be found on the Calendar portion of our website, or on the Committee page on this website. The only exceptions are the Legal Affairs Committee, the Personnel Committee and the Compliance Committee; because of the sensitive or confidential nature of their discussions, their meetings are closed and minutes are not available. Minutes for other Committees are posted on our website after they are approved and signed by the Committee, and then accepted by the Board.

All PGA WEST homeowners can arrange for guests or vendors to enter PGA WEST gates. You can contact the gate officer, who will ask your name, address and PIN number (password) before granting your guest or vendor access. If you aren’t sure of your PIN, or don’t have one, contact Master Association Access Clerk, Blanca Corona-Green: 760-564-6488. You can e-mail Blanca at: blanca@pgawest-ma.com

To make guest and vendor access more efficient, we strongly encourage you to use our new on-line system. It allows you to easily manage your visitors, and it helps keep our costs down.

Our on-line system is similar to the way members of the Club at PGA WEST make tee times, dining and event reservations, and access the member directory.

Each homeowner pays a Master Association monthly assessment to cover the Association’s operating expenses. All PGA WEST homeowners pay their monthly assessments as part of their monthly residential association assessments; homeowners do not pay directly to the Master Association. The monthly assessment is set each Fall as part of our annual budgeting process. For 2016, each homeowner pays $78/month (with the exception of homeowners in the Greg Norman development, where homeowners pay $156/month).

You are entitled to a hearing before our Compliance Committee. You will receive a notice from the Master Association, by US Mail, with the citation and information about the hearing, if you request one. For additional questions, contact:

Association General Manager, Michelle Howard, michelle.howard@managementtrust.com

Assistant Manager, Brionna Guerrero, brionna.guerrero@managementtrust.com
