The authority of the Code is vested in the Constitution, in particular the provisions relating to visitation and membership. In the event of an inconsistency, provisions contained in the Constitution take precedence over the Code.

The Code applies to members, guests and visitors when they are on club premises. Subject to legal considerations, interpretation of the principles by the Management Committee is final.



The Code will be actively monitored by the club. If a breach occurs and can be proven, the club will initiate disciplinary action against the relevant member(s), guest(s) and/or visitor(s) concerned, which may include warnings, withdrawal of certain privileges, and suspension or termination of membership (if applicable). Any disciplinary action under the Code will be in accordance with the Constitution and laws applicable to the club.
