CELL PHONE USE
Cellular phone use has become a vital part of many Members and Guest's daily professional and personal lives. We at Deering Bay believe that there must be rules governing appropriate and considerate use of these devices while attending or participating in club activities and while dining.
Dining Venues – Ringing cell phones and oral conversation via cell phone is not permitted in any Dining venue. It is required that cellular phones be placed on vibrate or silent mode when in or around these areas.
Fitness Center – For safety reasons, cellular phones may not be used at any time while using gym equipment or exercise machines in the fitness center.
Golf Areas – Because of the traditional rules of etiquette governing the game of golf, we request all golfers turn off their cell phone ringers and refrain from holding cellular phone conversations while on the course as much as possible. We urge your consideration as ringing phones and conversation can be disruptive to both those in your group and at holes nearby. Please exercise discretion on the course, the practice green and the driving range.
Tennis Facility – Because of the traditional rules of etiquette governing the game of tennis, ringing of cellular phones is not permitted at any time on or around the tennis courts. It is requested that Members and their guests refrain from holding cellular phone conversations on or around the tennis courts unless absolutely necessary as this is interruptive and interferes with other players' games.
