Rules & Dress Code
It has always been the goal of the House Committee to help create an atmosphere of “casual elegance” in the Clubhouse. To that end, AVCC has a dress code and anyone in violation of the dress code will be denied service.
Main Dining Room
Gentlemen over 14 years of age are required to wear a long-sleeve collared shirt. Jackets are not mandatory, but members are requested to dress in a manner suited to the setting and decor of the room, recognizing that the Club wishes the Main Dining Room to remain attractive to members entertaining business associates and other guests. For certain events, a jacket and tie will be required.
Ladies shall be properly attired at all times.
In the Grille Room and on the Terraces, golf and tennis attire is acceptable.
Short-shorts, T-shirts, tank tops, blue jeans, cutoff jeans, cargo pants, cargo shorts and similar clothing, are not permitted within the confines of the Clubhouse and Terraces at any time. Shirts must be tucked in at all times. Men must wear shirts with collars or mock turtlenecks. (By way of clarification, all denim clothing is considered inappropriate.)
Gentlemen may not wear hats inside Clubhouse dining areas.
Golf shoes are not permitted in the Main Dining Room or Library. Members are expected to use electric shoe cleaners to minimize tracking in dirt and sand.
Bathing suits and “cover-ups” are restricted to the pool area.
The General Manager is authorized to waive these rules for special occasions.
Golf Dress Code
The course is a wonderful Club asset. We take pride in this. This pride should reflect itself in our attire when we play the course. All members, including juniors, must follow the dress code while on the golf course and all practice facilities. Members are expected to inform their guests of the dress code in advance so as to avoid embarrassment.
Men and Boy's Dress Code
All golf shirts must have a collar or mock collar. Shirts must be tucked in at all times. Traditional "Bermuda" shorts are permitted. All hats, visors, and caps must be worn with the bills to the front, and outdoors only. Hats, visors and caps may not be worn in the Clubhouse.
Women and Girl's Dress Code
Golf shirts may have short sleeves, long sleeves or sleeveless. Any type of tank top or halter top is not permitted. Traditional "Bermuda" shorts, golf skirts, culottes, and slacks are considered acceptable golf attire.
Denim jeans, cargo shorts, cargo pants, halter tops, short shorts, cutoffs and swimming suits are not appropriate golf attire. Only non-metal golf shoes are permitted. Juniors are allowed to wear sneakers. Neatness in dress is always a prerequisite and extremely important. Each member of the Club, the Board of Governors and the Club staff are expected to enforce the above dress code.
Tennis Dress Code
All players must wear non-marking, smooth-soled tennis shoes. Running shoes are not allowed. All players must wear appropriate tennis attire. Appropriate tennis attire includes shirts with sleeves, shirts with or without collars, skirts, and shorts manufactured by a tennis apparel company and intended to be worn for racquet sports. All clothing must be white; however, trim on tennis wear is permissible if it is merely a touch of color. Tee shirts are not permitted under any circumstances.
The AVCC Clubhouse, tennis areas, and pool areas are smoke-free facilities. Smoking is not permitted in any dining area, including the Terraces.
