Whippoorwill Dress Code

Whippoorwill Club’s dress code is intended to ensure a pleasant and dignified atmosphere in which to enjoy the club's facilities and services. It is premised on members' exercising their good judgment, respect for tradition and sensitivity to the desires and expectations of the membership as a group. An integral part of the Whippoorwill tradition is the expectation that members, their families and guests will always be neatly attired and will maintain higher standards of appearance than may be evident in public places.


Recognizing that a dress code cannot reasonably be expected to identify all forms of acceptable and unacceptable attire, Whippoorwill’s dress code establishes MINIMUM standards that apply to Club facilities and activities.

The following types of attire are NEVER APPROPRIATEat the Whippoorwill clubhouse:

· Frayed, dirty or torn denim, cut-off shorts, cargo-style pants or cargo-style shorts

· T-shirts, undershirts, tank tops, hooded sweatshirts, crop tops, mesh or fishnet shirts

· Untucked shirts, except Tommy Bahama style shirts with a square hem (regardless of brand)

  • Short shorts
  • Sleeveless shirts for men
  • Bare or stocking feet
  • Sports uniforms

· Exercise wear - workout, running, yoga or cycling attire.

  • Athletic leggings acceptable under tennis attire only

· Bathing attire (although swimmers wearing jackets or robes over their bathing suits may use the locker rooms and locker room entrances to the clubhouse)

  • Water shoes

· Casual flip-flops (i.e. havaianas) for men

We are excited to include well-kept denim as a component of the dress code, limited to our less formal eating areas. We will make a concerted effort to allow well-kept denim at additional events this year – to be noted on flyers.

The following defines three categories of our dress code in or around the clubhouse to provide an easy reference:

Dress Codes:

“Formal Attire” – includes dress pants, jackets, turtleneck sweaters, and tucked-in collared shirts for gentlemen; dresses, skirts of modest length and dress pants for women. No athletic shoes permitted.

“Dining Room Attire” - includes long pants and tucked-in collared shirts for gentlemen; dresses, pants, skirts of modest length and white denim for women. Golf attire is acceptable but does not include golf shorts, golf shoes or sneakers.


"Country Club Casual Attire" –Country club casual attire is permitted. Such attire includes tucked-in collared shirts, turtlenecks, neat pants and golf-length shorts for gentlemen; pants, white denim, skirts, golf-length shorts and shirts that may be collared or not for women. On specified days (see below), well-kept denim pants are permitted. Denim with holes, tears, fraying, or otherwise sloppy, is never permitted. Appropriate cover-ups are permitted on the patio.
