      NOTE: For men, Golf Shirts and Dress Shirts must be tucked in at all times while on club property. However, shirts that are designed to be worn untucked, (for instance, Tommy Bahama style shirts) may be worn in the Clubhouse or on the patio and veranda, but not on the golf course or practice facilities. Members are to instruct their guests of the adopted Club dress code.

      Shorts are allowed in all dining areas (unless a special dress code is in effect) with the exception of the Main Dining Room. Shorts must adhere to the Golf Attire requirements listed below.


      It is permissible to wear "dress jeans" in the following locations: Men's Locker Room, Ladies' Locker Room; Mixed Grill; Lounge; Outdoor Patio/Pavilion; and the Men's Grill. White Jeans are allowed on the Patio. The Board defines "dress jeans" as denim that is not excessively faded and is free of rips, tears, holes, etc. All other aspects of the Dress Code above remain intact. Please note that allowing dress jeans in the above-specified areas does not signal an overall relaxation of the Dress Code; Members and their guests are required to follow all other aspects of the Code at all times.

      The dress code for Club events will be defined on an event-by-event basis. You should not assume jeans are permitted at an event - please consult the event communications for the applicable dress code or contact the Clubhouse for guidance.

You must proceed directly to your locker and change into appropriate clothing.
