Beach Club Dress Code

A dress code upholds a welcoming environment for adults and families alike and sets the standards of a first-class establishment. 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 it is recommended to always err on the side of more conservative attire.


How is the dress code enforced?

Management has full discretion by the Board of Directors to determine and enforce what constitutes appropriate attire.

Are there any exceptions?

Only when authorized by the Board of Directors and management, and noted on the announcement of the event.

Who does the dress code apply to?

It applies to all persons, members and guests, 10 and older. It is the responsibility of the members to inform their guests, prior to their visit, of the dress code and other house rules.


In keeping with the standards 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. 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.

There is an expected level of informality at a beach setting. However, the Club expects that attire on the beach and within the Club house will be appropriate, modest and in good taste. These Rules apply to all persons aged 10 years and above and are subject to management discretion.
