Dress Code

Columbia Hills is proud of its standards, and every effort is made to ensure that these standards are upheld. Golfers are expected to wear clothing that is designed primarily for golf, and to dress smartly and appropriately at all times, both on the golf course and in the Clubhouse. Management and staff have both the responsibility and authority to interpret appropriate dress and to ensure that standards are maintained.

GOLFERS shall wear attire primarily designed for playing the game of golf. Jeans and cut-offs are not permitted. Golf shirts with a collar must be worn at all times and must have a clean and neat appearance. Mock neck shirts are acceptable as long as they have a wide mock neck (1 1/2”) and cannot be construed as a t-shirt. Tank tops, halter-tops, tube tops and T-Shirts are not acceptable. Hats are not permitted to be worn backwards but are permitted to be worn inside the clubhouse.  Golfers may wear their shirts un-tucked as long as it presents a clean and neat appearance. While on the course or driving range, denim is not permitted to be worn at any time.

Pace of Play

Columbia Hills has developed a “Pace of Play” policy in order to make the golfing experience more enjoyable for our members and guests. To insure this policy is enforced, we do in fact monitor and record the turn times and finish times for all rounds. It is our goal to make sure that everyone plays at a comfortable and enjoyable pace. The pace of play at Columbia Hills is 3 hours and 50 minutes. Be aware of your position on the golf course. If you fall behind or cannot catch up to the proper pace of play, please allow the group behind you to play through.


Expect to drive your car up the hill to the main entrance at the front of the clubhouse. Valet will remove your clubs and make sure that the bag staff set your clubs on a cart. At this point please feel to use the locker rooms to change your shoes and/or clothing. After using the locker room please check in at the pro shop. If you do not need to use the locker room please check in at the pro shop upon arrival to ensure the golf staff knows you are present for your tee time.
