Please connect with our Aquatics Director Kyle, at Kyle.Flanders@bayclubs.com for more information.

Service Fee and Check Verification
Please note that while dining with us there is a service fee included in all of 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.
Host Your Holiday Parties with Us!
The holiday season is just around the corner, and dates are filling quickly at The Club! Only a few select dates are left. Whether you are planning an intimate party for family and friends or a large corporate gathering, The Club’s experienced catering team is dedicated to making your holidays sparkle. To begin the arrangements, contact Event Manager, Rosie Vargas, at Rosie.Vargas@bayclubs.com.

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 Connectunder 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!
