Clubhouse Rules

  • Cell Phone Use
    • In order to preserve the Club's congenial atmosphere, the use of mobile devices is discouraged.

      If you must make or receive a call using a mobile device, please be discreet and brief and do so only in these locations:

      • Parking Lot - Inside your vehicle only
      • Immediately adjacent to one of the Club's public landlines
      • Pool Deck

      Making or receiving calls in any other location is strictly prohibited.

      The discreet, silent use of mobile devices is permissible, so long as the device is no larger than an iPad and does not offend another member.  Laptop computers may only be used in reserved private rooms.

      Members may notify a Staff member or respectfully approach another member who is in violation of this policy.  Any member who is a repeat offender, will be subject to disciplinary action from the Board of Trustees.

  • Golf Course and Practice Area Attire
    • Males:

      Sport shirts with collars, short or long sleeve mock turtlenecks, sweaters, slacks or appropriate length Bermuda shorts and non-metal spiked golf shoes.  Shirts are to be tucked into slacks or shorts.  Parachute cargo pants and shorts, t-shirts of any kind and tennis/coaching shorts are considered inappropriate golf attire.  Gentlemen should always remove caps or hats in the dining areas of the Clubhouse including the Men's Grille.  Juvenile and Junior Scioto golfers will have the same dress code as men.


      Blouses, sweaters, skirts, slacks or appropriate length Bermuda shorts and non-metal spiked golf shoes.  Tank tops and spaghetti strap tops are considered inappropriate attire.  Juvenile and Junior Scioto golfers may wear high school, collegiate and LPGA appropriate golf attire.


  • Pace of Play
    • Playing golf at a reasonable pace is consistent with the traditions of the game and shows proper respect for the other players on the golf course. All groups playing at Scioto Country Club are expected to meet our pace of play guidelines of 3 hours and 50 minutes to 4 hours and 10 minutes for a foursome.

  • Tipping
    • Tipping is not allowed at Scioto Country Club for club personnel.  Caddies are not employees of the Club and therefore tipping of a caddie is allowable. 

  • Hats / Caps
    • Gentlemen are asked to refrain from wearing hats/caps in the Clubhouse.  Hats/caps are to be worn in the manner for which they were intended, i.e., golf visors and baseball-style hats/caps with the brim facing forward. 

  • Clubhouse Dress
    • Casual attire is welcome in Member dining spaces.  Golf attire, tennis attire, business attire with neatly pressed, properly fitted slacks and appropriate shirts with collars.  T-shirts, workout attire or swim wear are not permitted in the Clubhouse. 

  • Denim Policy
    • Denim is not permitted in the golf areas, Men's Grille or Men's Grille patio during the Golf Season.  Tasteful and properly fitted denim attire is permitted in the Member Clubhouse dining areas after 4:00 pm on weekdays and anytime on weekends.  Frayed, mottled, or "grunge" denims are not considered "tasteful" for these purposes.   Denim is not permitted in the Ballroom or private event rooms.

  • Ballroom and Private Event Rooms Dress
    • Generally "Smart Casual" dress is preferred.  Deviations from the Dress Code must be approved by the General Manager.

      Smart Casual – Business attire, sport coats are welcomed, ties are optional.

      Formal – Jackets and ties for gentlemen.  Dresses, skirts and business suits for ladies.

  • Smoking
    • Smoking is prohibited in the Clubhouse area and outside dining facilities.  The fire pit area on the north end of the Clubhouse by the Men's Grille is an area where smoking is permitted.
