Dress Code

It is expected that Members dress in a manner befitting the atmosphere and surroundings of the Country Club of Hilton Head. It is the responsibility of all Members to inform their guests of the dress requirements of the club.

Our dress code is defined as Country Club Casual. The Country Club of Hilton Head defines Country Club Casual as the following:
