Play Etiquette

Upper Montclair Country Club takes pride in its less than four-hour Pace of Play. It is expected that all players, at regular intervals, check the position of their group with respect to the foursome ahead of you. Courtesy requires that slower players allow others to play through. We ask that all players insure that divots are replaced, sand traps are raked, all ball marks on the greens are properly repaired and carts are operated in a manner complying with Club policy.

Members are expected to advise their guests of all Club Rules and it is the responsibility of the Member to assure that all guests comply with Club Rules as well as Play Etiquette.

Cell Phone Policy

The use of cell phones is permitted only in the the locker rooms, front lobby, or outside the building in an appropriate area. Cell phones must be set on vibrate mode so as not to ring while on Club property. This consists of all areas of the Clubhouse, outside patios, the golf course, or driving range. If a call is received, the recipient must remove himself or herself from the dining areas and accept the call in the designated areas. If a call is received on the golf course, golfers are asked to dispense with the call quickly to avoid holding up play.
