GuestsThis club is for members and for us to continue we must ask that if you bring a guest from the local area that that guest be restricted to 3 visit after that it would be expected that that person join the club.
If your guests are from out of the area we don't expect a membership from them but all guests must sign in our book at the Entrance.
It is imperative that all guests accompanied by a member sign (using their name NOT Guest) into the sign in book at the entrance to the property while using the facility. The Club pays a fee for every guest (for insurance and liability reasons) and we must know who and when you have guests.
Please don't abuse this amazing privilege.
