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 dress code is applicable to ALL members and guests above the age of five (5).

The following types of attire are never appropriate at the Whippoorwill clubhouse:

  • Frayed, fringed, dirty or torn clothing or denim, cut-off shorts, cargo-  style pants and shorts 
  • T-shirts, undershirts, tank tops, crop tops, mesh or fishnet shirts
  • Hooded shirts and sweatshirts
  • Short shorts on men/women
  • Sleeveless shirts on men
  • Bare or stocking feet
  • Sports uniforms
  • Swim attire
  • Exercise wear (workout, running, yoga or cycling attire) 
  • Flip Flops or water shoes

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 for gentlemen; dresses, skirts of modest length and dress pants for women. Golf shoes and sneakers are not permitted.

“Dining Room Attire”- includes non-denim long pants and tucked-in collared shirts for men; dresses, pants, skirts of modest length and white denim for women. Golf shoes and sneakers are not permitted.

"Country Club Attire"–Country club attire includes tucked-in collared shirts (unless designed to be worn untucked), turtlenecks, neat pants and golf-length shorts for men; pants, white denim, skirts, golf-length shorts and shirts that may be collared or not for women. Denim clothing (ex. Denim jackets, pants, shirts and skirts) is acceptable on the following specific days:


                *Lunch all days and dinner on Wednesdays and Thursdays only.
