Information for Guests

Dress Code

Wee Burn’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 Wee Burn 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, Wee Burn’s dress code establishes minimum standards that apply to Club facilities and activities.

Notwithstanding the forgoing, the following attire is never appropriate at Wee Burn:

  • Frayed, dirty or torn denim, cut-off shorts, cargo-style pants and shorts
  • Tee shirts and Sweatshirts that are emblazoned with large print (school names or products name) are not permitted in dining areas, other than the Beach Grille
  • Short shorts on women and sleeveless shirts on men
  • *Exercise wear (including workout attire, running, yoga or cycling attire)

*Exercise wear may be worn for beach camp drop-off Monday – Friday mornings at 9:00 a.m. in the summer at the beach club. Exercise attire is not permitted for drop-offs at the main club. Runners and cyclists who run to the beach club must upon arrival avail themselves of the locker room and change into suitable beach attire.

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.
The dress code applies to people six years of age and older.

Military uniform is always considered appropriate attire.
