Guest Policies

Club Guests:

Since Ridglea has been voted “Best Family Friendly Club” in Fort Worth, we pride ourselves in making each experience as memorable as possible. To help make your visit enjoyable, we bring the following rules to your attention:


Guests must be accompanied by a member at all times, unless other arrangements have been authorized by the General Manager per the Club by-laws.

Guests are expected to observe all House and Golf Rules of Ridglea Country Club.

Ridglea Country Club is a non-smoking facility. Smoking will be permitted on the exterior seating areas of the Family (North) Clubhouse including the 19th Hole patio, on the grass areas around the pool and the exterior porches of the Championship (South) Clubhouse. This includes e-cigarettes.

Clubhouse Dress Code

Members and their guests are expected to wear clothes appropriate to a dining environment. Members are requested to remember the social nature of the Club and to dress themselves and their children in good taste.

Cut-off shorts, running shorts, jeans with holes, swim suits, cover-ups, men’s shirts where the underarm is exposed and short shorts are specifically prohibited in all dining rooms.

Gentlemen must remove their hats while in the Dining Room and Family Grill, as well as at all Club events, unless specified by the theme of the event.

Guests accompanied by a member are allowed to utilize the driving range and practice facility for a driving range fee. The same rules governing the golf course will govern the driving range and practice areas.

Guests MUST play with a member or obtain a Guest Card in accordance with Club Bylaws, and only if the Director of Golf deems their play will not interfere with that of members.
