Active members of Fairway Farms Swim and Tennis Club are all partial owners. Each member holds a uniquely-numbered Certificate of Membership (often referred to simply as a “bond”) that is purchased upon joining the club.

A certificate becomes available when an existing member opts to sell (or otherwise releases ownership of) their “bond”.

How to Join

There is currently a waitlist for membership. To be added to the waitlist, please submit the application form online. Then, write a $50 (non-refundable) check payable to Fairway Farms Swim and Tennis Club.

Remit payment to:

Fairway Farms Swim and Tennis Club
Attn: Membership Chair
PO Box 531311
Livonia, MI 48153

Prospective members must submit the form online and mail the check; we do not accept applications at the club.

Cost to Join

The Certificate of Membership (“bond”) costs $650. This, along with a $100 Capital Recovery Improvement Fee, is due upon joining the club.

Annual Dues and Fees

The annual cost consists of dues1 ($585) and a capital improvement fee ($100). The total amount due is $685 annually.

  • We currently do not accept credit cards or online payments.
  • Payments must be made by check and mailed to the address above.
  • Do not postdate checks.
  • Payment envelopes must be postmarked on or before March 15th.
  • Payments with a postmark date after March 15th are subject to a 15% late fee of $102.50

Some special situations apply:

Members that join on March 15th or later pay on a prorated basis:

Join DatePayment Due
March 15th – June 15th$685 (100%)
June 16th – June 30th$548 (80%)
July 1st – July 15th$411 (60%)
July 16th – July 31st$274 (40%)
August 1st – August 15th$137 (20%)
August 16th – Closing DateNo Payment Due

Active members may opt to pay on an installment plan:

  • Dues are split into three payments:
    • $160 on March 15th
    • $210 on April 1st
    • $260 on May 1st
  • The total amount paid on the installment plan is $630 ($45 more than a single payment). All three checks must be submitted at the same time (postmarked by March 15th). Checks will be held by Fairway Farms and cashed after the appropriate date on each check.
  • The capital assessment fee must be included as part of the March 15th payment ($260 total – instead of $160) or as a separate $100 payment on March 15th.

All members are expected to pay on time. Failure to pay will result in the forfeiture of membership. Members that have not paid in full will not be permitted to enter the club.

Member dues are typically used for club expenses (utilities, staff salaries, and other operating expenses). The capital improvement fee funds more extensive improvements to the pool, building, and grounds.

Want to reduce the cost of membership? Consider volunteering for the Board of Directors. Board members that meet the required conditions pay no dues the year following a two-year term.

1 Dues were increased from $550 to $585 per board vote on February 13th, 2023, to counter rising costs. This increase in dues (6.3 %) remains below the US inflation rate of 6.4% for the 12-month period ending in January 2023.

Members should update contact information as needed via this link.

Associate Members

We define an associate member as a relative or other person associated with an active member (mother, father, stepdaughter, stepson, nephew, niece, grandchild, babysitter, etc.). An associate member may only enter the club along with an active member with whom they are registered. A current individual photo must also be submitted and kept on file with the active member’s account.

Associate membership is valid for the current calendar year only. The cost is $50.

To apply for associate membership, submit the application form.


While we never like to see a member move on and sell their bond, we know priorities and situations change. If you’d like to resign, please submit the resignation form.

Memberships not sold before March 15th of each season must pay the annual dues and fees. Upon the sale of the bond, the club will refund dues and fees on a prorated basis.
