Member & Guest Information


Dress Code

Members’ attire should be dictated by the occasion and the hour of the day but should always be neat and appropriate.

Children are expected to adhere to the dress code and Members are expected to advise their children and guests of the dress requirements. Club management reserves the right to ensure compliance with the dress code when necessary.


Persons including children wearing bathing suits must also wear coverups, shirt, and always wear footwear inside the Clubhouse and in the outdoor dining areas.

The Dining Room is the more formal venue at GHYC and jackets are recommended for men. Members and guests are requested to be thoughtful and considerate in their choice of attire. After 6:00 p.m. the following are not permitted in the Dining Room and Dining Room Bar: caps, collarless shirts, shorts or casual flip flops; Denim blue jeans are permitted only when worn with a jacket.
