A member or guest may arrive or depart from the Club in clothing that does not conform to the dress code and take a direct route between the parking area and the locker rooms or Fitness Center.

Dressy denim* is allowed in the Bar, Grill Room, Members Card Room and Veranda ONLY. Denim is never permitted in the Main Dining Room at any time, unless approved for a special Club function. Members are responsible for assuring that their children and guests comply with this dress code.

* "Dressy denim" means fashionable denim jeans or tops in good, clean condition without rips, frayed edges, or visible holes.

The Club's Food & Beverage Manager and on-duty Wait Captain are authorized by the PVGC Board of Directors to monitor and enforce this policy.
