At the February 2019 Board of Directors meeting we addressed feedback received from the Membership Survey regarding denim being prohibited on club grounds as part of our dress code. Due to changing dress codes in the work place, we are going to exercise a trial run of an amended dress code.
While denim is not allowed anywhere at the Club, during this trial period, tasteful denim will be allowed to be worn on a designated path of travel into and out of the Club during the work week. There will still be no denim allowed on the weekends whatsoever. Those arriving and leaving the Club in denim will be asked to use the pool side entrance of the Club to enter and exit the Club. Please do not use the main entrance or the golf entrance when wearing denim. The denim path of travel does not include the Tennis Shop or Turn Café nor stopping to socialize at the pool. Please proceed directly to the locker room to change into appropriate Club attire.
Hopefully this will be helpful to those who wear denim in the workplace while still respecting our longstanding dress code traditions. We will evaluate this change over the trial period and report back to the membership.
