Guest Information

Information for our Guests

Like many private golf clubs, Rosedale has implemented a number of standards governing attire and other matters on and off the course. The following summary of these policies is offered for the benefit of experienced and first-time guests alike. The goal of this note is to provide a measure of certainty for everyone, to reduce any chance of embarrassment, and to ensure the best possible guest experience at Rosedale Golf Club.

Golf Course Dress Code

Members should dress with taste, discretion and consideration of other Members. Golf attire should be neat, tailored and consistent with the standards of the Club and tradition of the game of golf. All guests are asked not to change into their golfing attire in the parking lot as day lockers are available in the Club House.  Members are also responsible to ensure that their guests comply with the Dress Code. In the event of an infraction by a Member or a guest, the Board has instructed the Professional staff to speak to the Member (not to the guest) with the details of the infraction.
