Front Gate is Closed Again

Gate is out of commission temporarily

The Automatic Gate is Down Again

Please bring your hard key with you until further notice

Despite the best efforts by Maintenance Director Eric Sigg to keep it up and running, the original traffic damage to the automatic gate at the club entrance has rendered the gate inoperable for at least this week. Access to the club will be ONLY through the green cattle gate until a new gate can be installed. We hope to have that done this week, but we are dependent on the supplier. Every member should have a physical key in addition to your gate card. If not, click this link and send an email to the membership director to request one.

When entering and exiting the green gate, please take a minute to close and lock the gate behind you, unless other members are in line behind you. Event managers should plan to have someone stationed at the gate to aid entrance and exit of participants. For security purposes, please do not leave the gate unlocked and open

The board appreciates your patience.

Access to the club will be ONLY through the green cattle gate until the automatic gate is fixed.

When entering and exiting the green gate, please take a minute to close and lock the gate behind you, unless other members are in line behind you. Event managers should plan to have someone stationed at the gate to aid entrance and exit of participants. For security purposes, please do not leave the gate unlocked and open
