Dress Code

Kenwood Country Club Dress Code

KCC’s Board of Trustees has updated and clarified our Dress Code in conjunction with our numerous venues and in response to member requests to maintain our high standards. The “Code” requires appropriate, country-club attire which is respectful of our Club, its traditions and all of our members. While a member’s judgment with respect to good taste is the cornerstone of our Dress Code, there are specific requirements and restrictions with respect to each of our venues.

The Board of Trustees has empowered KCC Managers and Employee Partners to enforce our Dress Code. A member, members of his or her family and guests whose attire does not comply with our Dress Code will be asked to comply at that time. Failure to comply will result in denial of access to the Clubhouse and Club grounds. Enforcement by KCC Employee Partners is mandatory, not optional, and will be overseen by our Chief Executive Officer and the Club’s Board of Trustees. Failure to comply with the Code or Employee Partner enforcement of the Code may result in suspension of Club privileges.
