    Rules & Regulations

Club Reciprocity

CCNB does not have an official club reciprocity with any local or regional golf facilities. Please see the golf shop staff for further information. The staff will be happy to help you with your plans when possible. Reciprocity is a priviledge, not a right. Only the following members have any reciprocity privileges at CCNB: Full Golf, Family Golf, Intermediates, and Junior Intermediates. Requests MUST be submitted to the Golf Shop staff two days prior for any arrangements to be possible. The Golf Shop staff will NOT call any other area club for one day or same day requests.

Golf – Proper Attire

Proper attire is required at all times for all members, children of members, and their guests. Proper attire specifically excludes the wearing of denim jeans, short shorts, cut-offs, tennis shorts, halter tops, t-shirts, sweat pants, gym shorts, and any kind of cargo bottom. Each member is responsible for guests, and if he or she dresses improperly, the guest will be denied the priviledges of the club. Jeans of any type are not permitted on the golf course or practice areas at any time.
