Dress Code Policy
The DuPont Country Club dress code has been formulated in a way that takes account of the varied social and sports activities available at the club and the type of clothing typically worn by members and guests participating in these activities, while imposing a reasonable standard of dress appropriate to a private country club environment. The following rules apply to all members and guests at the Club. The dress code may be altered to suit the need of a special Club event with the approval of the CEO.
Staff is expected to enforce the dress code policy. When encountering a possible dress code infraction, the staff member on duty (dining room manager, golf staff, tennis manager, fitness center employee) has the sole discretion to request a change of clothing or refuse access to the facility.
