Dress Code/Phone

Dress Code 

The following dress code reflects the spirit of our private country club and works to ensure a wonderful experience for all who enjoy the Club. We hope that members and their guests dress in a tasteful and appropriate manner, as would be expected at a country club. Please remember that your appearance not only reflects on you, but does affect those around you who are enjoying dining and other events. All dining venues require Country Club Casual (unless otherwise specified).  The following applies to all individuals ages 5 and up.

Special Event Attire: Certain events, when noted, may require male Members, male guests and male children, 16 and older, to wear a jacket and tie. Member parties and functions will specify appropriate attire. If you, or a guest, is without a jacket and/or tie when it is required for an event you will be provided with some of our House apparel for the duration of the event.  If it is not returned, the member’s account will be charged for the cost of the item(s).

Children and Guests: Children should be dressed comparably to their parents.  Members or guests are not permitted to change clothes or shoes in any of the Club parking areas. The changing of attire must be done in the locker rooms. Tee Shirts, sweat suits, sweatpants or sweatshirts, long or short cargo pants and spandex may not be worn in the Clubhouse

Athletic Attire: Proper golf attire is permitted anywhere on the Club premises. Proper racquet sports attire is permitted in the Huntingdon Pub and Pub Patio only (unless there is a specific Club event elsewhere in the Club which specifies athletic attire).  Members and guests in swimming attire are not permitted anywhere in the Clubhouse, its terraces or adjacent areas.

Relaxed Dress Code:  The dress code may be relaxed in the case of special parties (e.g., a costume party) or events, but only when the announcement of such events specifies that the dress may vary from the customary policy. Men's hats may not be worn on the upper level of the Club House. Sweat suits, sweat pants or sweat shirts, long or short cargo pants and spandex are not permitted in the main level of the clubhouse. Members should inform their guest of proper dress code in advance.

Fitness Attire:  Sleeveless tees or tank tops must be in good taste, no bare midriffs. Appropriate athletic shoes are required and no open toed shoes are permissible. Black-soled or marking shoes are not allowed on squash courts.  Members are encouraged to use discretion regarding their attire when entering the Clubhouse and dining areas in Fitness Attire, especially post-activity.

Denim Policy: Unless otherwise specified, properly fitted neat denim that is not faded, torn or has holes may be worn in all areas of the Club effective September 30th through April 30th.  A collared shirt neatly tucked in or appropriately tailored shirt (such as “UNTUCKit” or “Tommy Bahama” styles) may be worn not tucked in. 

Swimwear:  Swimwear is to be worn in the pool area only and members should dress modestly. Thong bikini style swimwear is not permitted.  No bathing attire is permitted when entering or exiting the main Clubhouse.

 

Cellular Phone Usage

The Club recognizes changing electronics utilization, but requires members and guests to embrace a balance between tradition and discretion. The use of electronic devices while on Club premises is discouraged unless necessary.  Calls anywhere on the premise should be discrete and as brief as possible.  Cellular phone calls may be received only if phones are set to silent mode, but conversations are not permitted in the dining areas.
