Pool Rules

Pool Rules & Regulations

The pool is for the exclusive use of full club members, their families, and invited guests.

“Family” includes parents and children residing in the same household. Other household residents may be considered “Family” upon approval by the Board of Governors on an individual basis. Houseguests may get pool privileges for an additional nominal fee and Board approval.

The lifeguard in attendance is directly responsible for the safety and wellbeing of every person, both in the pool and within the pool area. It is their responsibility to ask for the removal of any person(s) whose actions jeopardize the safety and wellbeing of others.
