Club Policies

Electronic Device Policy

Discrete use of email and text (but not voice) on mobile devices is allowed throughout the Clubhouse and the Pool area so long as, in the opinion of club management, it does not interfere with the enjoyment of the facilities by another member or guest.  Mobile devices must be kept on silent or vibrate at all times.  Phone calls may be made or received in the parking lot, locker rooms, the Pool area or the Private Dining Room.  Such calls are expected to be short, occur only when necessary, and the use of headphones is encouraged, except in the parking lot or Private Dining Room. Mobile device or tablet usage for children (on silent or with headphones) is allowed in the Family Friendly Dining Areas of the Club (Hendrick’s Bar, Grille Room, and Grille Terrace area in front of the Grille Room) and in the Pool area.  Discrete tablet usage for adults (on silent) is also allowed in these areas in the Hudson Room and in the Pool area.  Tablet usage will not be allowed in the Formal Dining Areas of the Club (Founder’s Room, Rallye Room, Chapel) unless approval is received from the General Manager for use during a Holiday or Club Event.  The use of laptop computers is allowed in the Private Dining Room and at the Pool area.  The use of laptop computers is prohibited in all other areas of club property.

Smoking Policy

The Ardsley Country Club’s dress code is intended to ensure a pleasant and dignified atmosphere in which to enjoy the club’s facilities and services. It is premised on members’ exercising their good judgment, respect for tradition and sensitivity to the desires and expectations of the membership as a group. An integral part of ACC tradition is the expectation that members, their families, and guests will always be neatly attired and will maintain higher standards of appearance than may be evident in public places. Recognizing that a dress code cannot reasonably be expected to identify all forms of acceptable and unacceptable attire, ACC’s dress code establishes minimum standards that apply to Club facilities and activities. Access to the Clubhouse and Sports facilities will not be permitted to members, children and guests who are improperly attired. At the direction of The Board of Governors, the Club's staff will enforce this code. Compliance with the dress code by family and guests is the responsibility of the member. In addition, Club management has been charged with monitoring compliance, both in fact and in spirit. In instances of differing opinions, members will be expected to abide by management’s interpretation.

  • Frayed, faded, dirty or torn denim, cut-off shorts, cargo-style pants, and shorts
