Club Rules & Regulations
The number of times that a guest may utilize Club facilities is limited. As defined below, Family guests and unrelated guests have different limitations. Any combination of golf, tennis, pickleball, bocce, cards, bingo, etc. constitutes a “time”. Dining does not count as a visit unless for a special “dining event” (e.g. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Dinner Shows, etc.). Each “dining event” visit would be counted as a “time.”
When appropriate, all guest charges for services or merchandise will be charged to the sponsoring member’s Club account. Cash payments are not permitted.
The sponsoring member is responsible for the conduct of all guests while on Club property. If the behavior or appearance of any guest is deemed to be unsatisfactory, the sponsoring member and/or the houseguest may, at the request of Club management, be asked to leave the premises. At their sole discretion, the Board of Governors may deny or revoke guest privileges of a particular guest.
