RHCC’s dress code is intended to ensure a pleasant and dignified atmosphere in which to enjoy the facilities and services of RHCC. An integral part of this policy is the expectation that Members, their families and guests will always be neatly attired. Recognizing that a dress code cannot reasonably be expected to identify all forms of acceptable and unacceptable attire, RHCC’s dress code establishes minimum standards that apply to all RHCC facilities and activities.
Compliance with the dress code by family and guests is the responsibility of the Member. In addition, RHCC management and staff have been charged with monitoring compliance, both in fact and in spirit. In instances of differing opinions, Members will be expected to abide by management’s interpretation. Please help us avoid any inconvenience or embarrassment by strictly adhering to the letter and the spirit of the dress code.
Although athletic attire may be worn inside certain areas of the clubhouse, as a courtesy to other Members and to preserve the clubhouse furniture, members are strongly encouraged not wear athletic attire that may be damp from either rain or perspiration inside of the upper level of the clubhouse.
