Resident Information

On behalf of Dutch Island Homeowners Association we would like to officially welcome you to the com- munity! Dutch Island is a premier waterfront residential community consisting of approximately 500 homes on over 500+ acres. Amenities include 24 hour gated security entrance, a 450 foot dock and boat launch, a pool and kiddie pool, tennis courts, playground, basketball court, and an athletic field. All our amenities are all included in one annual HOA fee which is due each February.The community also manag- es our numerous lagoons and common areas for our resident’s enjoyment.

The HOA is a volunteer board of residents who work together with committee members to encourage participation in the active management of the island for its safety, financial solvency, enforcement of the covenants, maintenance of the common areas and facilities and community events. We would encourage you to join our efforts and seek ways to participate with the HOA board.

Once again, we look forward to having you as our neighbor and we wish to welcome you home!

Golf Carts

Golf carts are frequently used on Dutch Island and heavily contribute to the island’s feel. Drivers are required by law to be 16 years or older, and licensed drivers. Allowing underage golf cart drivers can result in HOA penalties. At this time, golf cart registration is not required, however there are ongoing conversations around reinstating the requirement in the future.
