Smoking is not permitted inside the clubhouse or at the pool or tennis area.
Appropriate dress should be exhibited at all times. The former jacket requirements in the main dining room outlived its time. Our dress policy is now “smart casual”. Jeans, Shorts, T-shirts and Sneakers are not permitted in the dining room. Also please remove your hats while dining at the club. Casual attire is allowed in the bar and terrace only.
Pool & Tennis Rules:
Members are permitted a maximum of three guests when using either the pool or tennis court. Guests must be accompanied by a member.
Cell Phone Etiquette:
Due to the explosive growth of cellular phone users, the Board of Governors has asked the members and their guest to be both thoughtful and courteous when entering the Club with a cell phone. A ringing telephone at a neighboring table can act as a disruption, and may be intrusive to others. Please be considerate to those in your surrounding by placing your phone in the vibration mode. Should your phone not include this option, please set the volume of the ringer to a minimum level. We trust each member sees the wisdom in attempting to maintain a pleasing atmosphere within the dining areas. Unlike several other private clubs and a few public restaurants, we are trying to avoid an outright ban of these devices.
Private Parties / Meetings
The clubhouse is available for private parties, business meetings, and other events. Please contact the General Manager (215) 646-3034 for specifics. Takeout food is available. Also the Club occasionally caters lunches to several businesses in the surrounding areas.
Liquor Service Policy
The Board of Governors has elected to adopt an alcohol service policy. Not only is it important to be in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, but suitable alcohol service is paramount in maintaining an appropriate atmosphere at the Club.
The Club will not serve alcohol to anyone under the age of twenty-one. In addition, our license only permits us to sell alcohol beverages that are to be consumed at our premises. Therefore, any alcoholic beverages purchased at the Club cannot be taken from the Club. In addition, the Club will not serve alcohol to any member or guest who is either intoxicated or appears to be intoxicated. There will be no exceptions to these rules.
It will be the responsibility of the General Manager to enforce this policy and see that the bartenders, waiters and waitresses enforce the rules. Should and individual be called into question, the staff person should notify the most senior employee on duty. The manager on duty is responsible for making a determination as to the level of intoxication nod determine whether to cease or not cease service of alcohol. IN the case of a guest, it will be the member’s responsibility to advise his or her guest.
The Board of Governors encourages each member to abide with this policy and assume responsibility not only for themselves but also their guests. Should a member be present when alcohol service is refused to another member or guest, offering the member a ride home would certainly help alleviate an uncomfortable situation, while simultaneously preserving the camaraderie that exists amongst the members of the Club.
Through this policy, the Board of Governors seeks to maintain the necessary level of decorum that is consistent with the operation of a social club. Any member who defies this policy will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion at the discretion of the Board of Governors.
Membership Policy Regarding Derivative Rights
The child of a PACC member shall enjoy derivative rights of a parent member in good standing up through and including the day of their 26th birthday. At that time, the individual may apply for membership in the Club. The derivative child’s application shall receive priority status verses any other individual pending applications.
