  • Golf Course & Club Attire
    • Tamarack Country Club Dress Code

      Tamarack’s dress code is intended to ensure a pleasant and dignified atmosphere in which to enjoy the club’s facilities & services.  An integral part of Tamarack’s 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.  Members should exercise good judgment, respect tradition and be sensitive to the desires and expectations of the membership as a group.   

      Recognizing that a dress code cannot reasonably be expected to identify all forms of acceptable and unacceptable attire, Tamarack’s dress code establishes minimum standards

      that apply to club facilities and activities.

      The dress code applies to members and their guests.  Violations of dress code will result in diminished club privileges.

  • Cell Phone Policy
    • Cellular phones, Blackberries and other communication devises is prohibited on the golf course at all times except when used simply for viewing email or text messages. The use of cell phones in the clubhouse, except the locker rooms is also prohibited. Cell phones can be used in the parking lot up until the bag drop area.

  • Speed of Play
    • Please be considerate of your fellow golfers in your speed of play, in the interval maintained between groups on the golf course and in your treatment and care of the golf course. The committee believes the expected time for completion of a round for a foursome is four hours, subject of course to conditions. It is most important to maintain your position behind the group in front of you, and maintain that position by preparing for your own strokes while walking or riding to your ball, or while waiting for others to play. If you periodically check both behind you and in front, you will have an idea whether you are going too slow.

  • Caddies
    • The Golf Committee strongly recommends taking a caddy. Caddies help speed up the pace of play by finding errant shots faster and their advice should lead to faster play and better scores. Caddies are also mindful of repairing divots and pitch marks and permissible cart usage.

  • Care of the Golf Course
    • Members and guests have a responsibility to take care of the golf course. Please repair ball marks on the greens. Replace divots or use sand/seed mix to fill divots in the fairways. Properly rake bunkers. When using a golf cart, please follow all directional signs and use cart paths when designated to do so. Please be especially careful to not drive in the tall fescue grass areas. The responsible operation of golf carts will help preserve the pristine condition of our playing surfaces. Please deposit all smoking materials, litter and broken tees in available containers on the course.
