Why do I need a POA Guest Card?
Non-Members may gain access to POA amenities by possessing a current, valid guest card. Non-Members possessing a valid guest card shall have access to fee-based POA amenities at the current guest rates.
Who needs a POA Guest Card?
Guest cards are required for use at all POA facilities for everyone 13 years of age or older if not accompanied by a POA Member in possession of a current member card (exceptions include Golf and Dining). Non-Members 12 years or younger must be accompanied by a responsible adult who has a current Member or guest card.
When a Non-Member is accompanied by a POA Member and that Non-Member does not have a guest card, then the accompanying POA Member must sign in their guest on the facility guest register, which will be located at the reception desk of each POA facility. If at any facility without a guest register, such as a POA lake, the Member must provide the names of each of his guests to a POA Ranger or other POA staff.
How do I get a POA Guest Card?
The POA may elect to sponsor a Non-Member to provide access to fee-based POA amenities.
Any Member in good standing may sponsor a Non-Member.
