Out of respect for all players, music will not be allowed on the Tennis courts before 4:00 pm. We ask that all members please abide by this request from our tennis professionals. Any special programming and events are exempt. Thank you for understanding.

Locker Room Cell Phone Usage
Due to privacy reasons, we do not allow members to use their cell phones, iPads, or computers inside the Locker Rooms. A fee will be applied to all violators as this is against House and Ground Rules. Please use any of our other spaces if you need to use any of your devices.

Service Fee and Check Verification
Please note that while dining with us there is a service fee included in all our restaurant checks. This goes to compensate our staff and no additional tips are needed but can be contributed if you would like. We are asking all members to sign their checks for verification of their orders at the close of their dinner service. We appreciate your understanding of this action needed by our serving staff.

Childcare Reminders
We love our little members and enjoy seeing them having fun using our childcare services! We would like to take the opportunity to remind you of some important childcare policies:

  • Advanced reservations are required. We will only accommodate drop-ins if it is safe to do so.
  • You can make reservations up to 7 days in advance. Please limit reservations to one visit per day.
  • Please arrive promptly at your reservation time. Reservations will be automatically canceled after 15 minutes of the start time and made available to another member.
  • Should you no longer require your reservation, please cancel it as soon as possible on Bay Club Connect under Bookings. This will free up space for another family.
  • Pick up your child(ren) promptly at the reservation end time. Use of our childcare services may be suspended for repeated violations.

Reminder: as of November 1st:

  • No-shows or reservations canceled less than 24 hours in advance will incur a $25 fee.

Again, we love our Bay Club Families and are looking forward to an amazing holiday season with you all!

In health,
