The HGC Dress Code is an integral part of the Club’s commitment to traditional values.

As such, it is important that all Members and their guests adhere to the stipulations of the Dress Code in every area of the Club. While specific allowances are made for Members and guests utilizing the pool and racquet facilities, when entering any other area of the Club, compliance with the appropriate Dress Code is required.
