Members and guests are required to be well groomed, neat and appropriately dressed in a way that is consistent with the Club’s standards. Members are responsible for the attire of their guests and it is their duty to inform their guests of the Club’s dress regulations to avoid embarrassment.
Having a standard set of dress for both the Clubhouse and outside facilities, the Board seeks the assistance of members in not only conforming to these standards themselves, but also notifying staff of any infringements.
Management and our golf professionals have instructions to advise members and guests if their dress is inappropriate. Please do not take offence if you are asked to conform.
