To make sure that your day is enjoyable, we direct your attention to the following rules and regulations that pertain to our members and guests. Your compliance with these regulations in advance of your outing will avoid potential embarrassing situations.  

Golfing Attire
All golfers are requested to be appropriately attired. Appropriate attire shall be considered casual dress consistent with the social atmosphere of an upscale private country club such as; long pants, Bermuda shorts, skirts and dresses of acceptable length, and golf shirts with collars. Shirts and blouses are to be worn tucked in and hats may not be worn facing backwards, nor on the patio or inside the clubhouse. Inappropriate attire shall be considered as short shorts, cargo pants, cargo shorts, dungarees, designer jeans, tank tops, undershirts, tee shirts, bare tops, and sandals.

Golf Carts
Golf carts are to be driven with caution at all times. Please keep golf carts on paths, observe all directional lines, signs and ropes.

Course Care
Please repair ball marks, replace divots and rake all bunkers. 

Lost Articles

Slow Play
Close attention to the speed of play is important. If there is an open hole in front of you, you are probably playing too slowly. Always keep pace with the group in front of you.
