Club House Rules

The Club House and all facilities of the Club are for the use, entertainment, and enjoyment of the Members and their families. This should be a prime factor in considering any request for use of the Club House. House Rules are promulgated by and may, from time to time, be changed by the House and Grounds Committee.

1. The Club Office is restricted to Club business only and is private.

2. The “19th Hole Grill” shall be open only during the hours posted by the Club Manager.

3.  The ballroom may be rented by a Member for a private party under the following conditions:

  1. A fee, designated by the Club Manager, must be paid in advance with a signed contract.
  2. The rental fee does not include use of the grounds, the golf course, or the pool.
  3. The attendance of Guests and the responsibilities of the Member renting the ballroom shall be in accordance with Article V of the By-Laws.
  4. The Club Manager or a Manager Designee must be present in the Club House during all private parties.

4. Decorations, which may, in any way, cause damage to the premises being decorated, are not allowed.

6. The Club Manager will set the regular hours during which the Club House will be open, and those hours will likely vary with the season.  Hours will be posted, and notice of any changes will be posted and emailed to members by the Club Manager.

Official Course Rules

1. All play shall be governed by the USGA Rules of Golf. Local rules may be established by the Tournament Committee, from time to time, to accommodate specific circumstances or conditions, and, when published shall take precedence over the USGA Rules of Golf. Players should check the Pro Shop Bulletin Board for temporary rules.

2. Appropriate attire is required at all times on Club property. Specifically, on the golf course and in the Pro Shop, men shall wear shirts with collars and women shall wear shirts, blouses or equivalent cover-up. Men shall wear shorts of adequate length, or trousers. Women shall wear shorts of adequate length, skirts, or trousers. Juniors under the age of 10 years are not required to wear a collared shirt. No one wearing a bathing suit shall be allowed on the golf course or in the Pro Shop. No one will be allowed on any green, including the practice green, barefooted.  At the Pro Shop’s discretion, shirts with a crew or banded collar may be permitted.  Tee shirts, tank tops or muscle shirts are not permitted.

4. Fivesomes will be allowed only at the Pro Shops discretion.

5. Players must maintain their starting position on the course.  The position of a group on the golf course is measured by the group in front of them, not the group behind them.  The Pro shop may ask a group that is more than one hole out of position to skip a hole to get back in position or allow the group behind them to play through.
