In addition to a one-time fee of $12,000, Sherry Francis and her husband pay $245 a month for their membership at The Point Lake and Golf Club in Mooresville, which entitles them to use the swimming pool, tennis courts and participate in the club’s social activities. There’s also a monthly $25 dining fee — in lieu of tipping — and they have to spend at least $150 per quarter at the club’s restaurant.
“It adds up,” Francis said.
Which is why she’s hoping that real estate mogul Donald Trump’s interest in purchasing The Point turns out to be more than just talk.
Francis and her husband joined the ritzy club when it opened in 2000 and have lived in the upscale community on the shores of Lake Norman since 2005. She said the club and golf course have been showing their age and could use a little sprucing up. The level of service has also declined, she said.
