DRESS CODE

The Club maintains a dress code philosophy that is mindful of the mutual respect that characterizes Members’ relationships. While one Member may be enjoying our sports facilities, another may be celebrating a special occasion or entertaining on a more formal basis. It is the desire of the Club to provide a cordial, professional and relaxed environment for its Members and guests to enjoy. The Board of Governors has adopted the dress code policy outlined below to foster an environment of respect, courtesy and decorum while balancing Member comfort and sensibility.

Our General Manager and his staff have responsibility for monitoring and enforcing these standards on behalf of the membership. The staff has been instructed to advise discretely and request the member or guest corrects the code violation or leave premises.  Staff have been instructed not to provide service to anyone not in compliance with the dress code. Any member that argues or disputes the discretion of any staff member enforcing the dress code may face disciplinary measures. Any disagreements should immediately be brought to the attention of the General Manager, or, in his absence, the senior manager on duty.
