The Club and the Board of Governors have adopted the following guidelines. This guideline is intended to ensure that all Members have a pleasant atmosphere in which to enjoy the club’s facilities and services. Compliance with the dress guidelines by family and guests is the responsibility of our Members. Club management has been advised to politely deny services or access to Club facilities to any Member or guest not in compliance with this policy. The Club will have available day shirts/jackets, and slacks to be provided to those not in adherence to these guidelines.
Please understand that these guidelines were adopted to promote a proper Club environment. The purpose of the Club’s dress code is not to dictate fashion, but rather simply to establish a standard of tasteful and traditional dress that will ensure an atmosphere of dignity and respect for fellow Members. The following dress definitions will be specified for Club functions, which may include deviations from these polices. If ever in doubt about suitable attire for any specific event, or in any area of the club, please contact the Member Services desk.

Members are expected to inform their guests of the dress code in advance so as to avoid embarrassment of being asked to comply.
