Club Reminders
We are in the full swing of summer and we are thrilled that the Club is busy. To ensure everyone’s safety and security, we have a few reminders:

  • Children
    • All children under 12 must be supervised at all times.
    • Children under 14 are not permitted to use the Fitness Facility or Locker Room Jacuzzi.
    • We have two family changing areas between the Women’s and Men’s Locker Rooms and poolside for your convenience.
    • Children are not permitted in the upstairs bar area.
  • Guests
    • Members may bring up to four guests per day. Any guests exceeding four will require approval from upper management.
    • Members receive two guest passes a month. Due to an increase in Club usage during the summer, members may only redeem three of those complimentary passes a day.
