Town Club Dress Code
We hope you feel the same comfort at Jonathan Club as you do in your own home. In keeping with our Club’s tradition however, we ask that you please familiarize yourself with our dress code.
A dress code sets the standards of a welcoming environment for adults and families alike. Distinguished by the strength of our traditions, this holds as true today as it did when Jonathan Club was founded, and why a dress code is still enforced. If ever in doubt what to wear at the Club, conservative attire is recommended.
In keeping with the intended atmosphere of the Club, members and their guests are required to wear conservative and appropriate clothing at all times while on Club property. Persons who are not appropriately dressed will not be allowed to use the Club's facilities. Members will be held responsible for the attire of their families, privilege holders, visitors and their respective guests. These Rules apply to all persons age 10 and above. Since the dress code changes from time to time, it is suggested that members check with management prior to entering the Club regarding any questions about the current dress code.
Jackets are no longer required in The Grill for dinner.
Relaxed Dress permitted during Home Games.
Casual Dress during weekends.
