Guest Rules and Courtesies

Welcome to LochenHeath!

Founded in 2001, LochenHeath Golf Club is proud of its heritage. As stewards of one of the great golf venues, the Members of LochenHeath seek to preserve our history and traditions. The Members of LochenHeath have adopted several rules that are designed to preserve the traditions and enhance the experience at LochenHeath.  Please take a second to familiarize yourself with these rules and enjoy yourself at LochenHeath.

Club Rules of Note for Guests

Golf Bags

Upon arrival, guests should drop off their golf bags with the attendant as they enter the grounds.  Upon departure, the golf bags should be picked up in the same general area or in a nearby secure area to be identified by an attendant. Golf bags should not be taken to your car on golf carts at the conclusion of the round of golf.

Cell Phones

You can only use your cell phone in your vehicle and on the golf course.


Proper attire is required at all times in the public areas of the Clubhouse including the restaurant and patio. This rule defines the minimum requirement for proper attire.  Members are responsible for advising their guests of the appropriate attire for any event.  The Club always honors more traditional attire, and good taste and judgment should always prevail in the absence of a specific requirement. When in doubt, the Club prefers that its members and guests dress up rather than dress down when visiting the Club. Clubhouse attire generally means business casual except as provided herein or specified by the Board for special events. All clothing must be neat, clean, un-tattered and otherwise orderly.  Shirttails must be tucked in everywhere, except as set forth below. Attire for minors should reflect the same policy as for adults.


Please note that this rule does not apply to the golf course.

Allowed Attire

Attire that is deemed appropriate in the Clubhouse at all times:

  • Men/Boys: Traditional club attire which includes a collared shirt, dress or casual slacks or Bermuda length shorts.

  • Women/Girls: Dresses, skirts, slacks and shorts of mid-thigh length, sleeveless shirts with a collar.

Prohibited Attire

Attire that is deemed inappropriate in the Clubhouse at all times (unless specifically authorized by the Board for a special function or set forth below as an “exception”):

  • T-Shirts and sleeveless shirts without a collar

  • Cargo style pants or shorts

  • Tank tops, crop tops or halter tops

  • Hats and visors for men/boys

  • Athletic or workout apparel

Notwithstanding the forgoing prohibited attire, the following attire can be worn as specified:

  • Tailored button-down collared dress or casual collared shirts which by their design are intended to be worn without being tucked into pants, shorts, or skirts.

  • Hats and visors may be worn in the locker room and to and from the locker rooms to the golf courses or parking lot.

Golf Carts

Please use the golf carts in designated areas only. Carts are not allowed in the parking lot.  On the course, please follow the cart paths and keep carts at least 20 yards from all greens, traps and other hazards.

Pace of Play

Please be prepared to play in four hours or less.  Be prepared to play at all times.  Always carry an extra ball. Be ready to hit when it is your turn and feel free to play ready golf. Always rake your own fairway bunker and replace your own divot.  Repair ball marks and prepare to putt while others are playing their ball.  Play from the appropriate tees.  When sharing a cart, please leave your playing partner after he or she has selected a club and proceed to your ball so that you will be ready to hit when it is your turn.  If uncertain of club selection, please take two or three clubs with you to the ball.

Smoking Policy

Smoking is prohibited inside the clubhouse and all outside dining areas. Smoking is permitted in the designated area of the viewing table overlooking the East Grand Traverse Bay.
