Dress Policy

Standards of Dress

The Winged Foot Dress Policy is designed to maintain the tradition, decorum and dignity of our Club. Proper dress while using Club facilities is traditional and conservative and applies to all Members, their families, guests and child care providers. Members are required to be familiar with these standards and are responsible for their guests’ conformance.

The Club's website has a section containing information on the Club's Dress Policy and other rules that can be forwarded to guests for their information. Copies are also available at the reception desk

IF AN ISSUE OR QUESTION DOES ARISE, IT IS THE POLICY OF THE CLUB FOR MEMBERS TO INFORM A SENIOR MEMBER OF THE STAFF. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE IS IT ENCOURAGED TO ADDRESS ANY VIOLATION, MEMBER TO MEMBER

Pace of Play

A foursome is expected to complete a friendly round of golf in no more than 4 hours. Slow play will not be permitted and high handicappers should not play from the blue tees. Players shall start only at No. 1 West tee or No. 1 East tee unless otherwise approved by the Caddie Master.

Carts

We are blessed with two great golf courses that are excellent courses to walk and players are encouraged to do so with the assistance of caddies. Weather and course conditions permitting, golf carts are available to those Members and Privilege Holders on the Approved for Golf Cart Use List (Seniors ~age 70 years and older and those with a Medical Need).  This List will be kept in the Caddie Master's Office.  Golfers using carts are required to have caddies except after 3:30 pm when caddies are optional for members and privilege holders.  Carts are not to be driven closer than thirty 30 feet of all greens and must be parked in the rough around the greens and never in the fairway approach in front of the greens. In the absence of cart paths, carts must be parked ten (10) feet or more from the Tee.  Violation of cart rules will result in a letter to the Member/Privilege  Holder and suspension of cart privileges.

Practice Area

When using the practice range, balls never should be hit over the net. Any person observed doing so will be asked to stop practicing immediately. Members will face disciplinary action if any guest they are hosting violates this rule.
