Eager to walk on HOA-2 golf course paths with your pet now that the rule has changed?

In response to the thousands who requested, commented and voted about allowing dogs on HOA-2 golf paths, the Rules and Regulations Committee recommended a change that the HOA-2 Board approved.

The new dog policy is first being implemented at the Preserve, while work is completed on the MountainView course. Maintaining the beauty and safety of our courses is a high priority. To reduce mistakes, signage is being updated.

HOA-2 residents voted about two to one (755 to 348) in favor of the rule change which is similar to HOA-1’s popular, successful policy. HOA-2’s policy matches HOA-1’s with two exceptions for protecting residents and courses:

Leash length is six-feet.

Access is suspended during course closures.

The Rules and Regulations Committee responded to residents’ concerns that controlling dogs at the end of 16-foot, retractable leashes can be difficult.

Please follow the rules so we keep the privilege of having canine residents on HOA-2 golf paths.

Here are some guidelines:

First, check the posted signs indicating whether non-golfers are allowed.

Walk only during posted times – before golf play has started in the morning and after most has stopped late afternoon.

Give way to active golfers at all times.

Be sensitive to neighbors who want peace and quiet.

Stay on paved golf paths except to collect poop.

Always have your pet on a leash that is no longer than six-feet.

Shorten your dog’s leash when approaching others.

Always have your dog under control.

Clean up after your pet and take dog waste with you off the course.

Enjoy the beauty of our golf courses and respect the rules!
