Owenego Beach Club Rules & Regulations
Please carefully review the following rules and regulations. These guidelines are provided so that we may maintain an atmosphere of peace and harmony. Thank you for your cooperation.
GATE HOUSE and GUEST FEES:
Upon entering the property, all cars are required to stop and register at the gate. Upon displaying your membership card, the gate attendant will give you your bathhouse key and direct you toward a designated parking area. At the gate, you must register and pay a guest fee of $12.00 per guest over the age of 5, between the hours of 9 am – 5 pm. Any one guest is limited to four visits per season. Guest fees must be paid at time of visit, as we do not allow these fees to be charged.
PARKING & ACCESS ROADS:
Parking areas will be designated by the gate keeper and, on weekends, by a parking attendant. Please cooperate with them, as they are under the strict direction of the office.
Bathhouses are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. The primary purpose of a bathhouse is for changing and for limited storage. If sharing a bathhouse, please be courteous to those sharing with you. The Owenego is not responsible for any lost or broken items. Members are required to empty bathhouses by October 1st. After October 1st, all doors are tied open, in our pursuit to avoid vandalism.
ABSOLUTELY NO OUTSIDE BEER, WINE OR LIQUOR may be brought onto the Owenego grounds. Any alcoholic beverages must be purchased through the Owenego. Violators will have coolers confiscated and memberships will be revoked. Our liquor license mandates the strict enforcement of this rule with POSITIVELY NO EXCEPTIONS.
COCKTAIL LOUNGE & THIRSTY GULL:
State law prohibits minors under the age of 21 from entering a bar, unless accompanied by a parent. Please have children purchase their soft drinks from the Hungry Dog Snack Bar.
PATIOS, DECKS & MAIN BUILDING:
We delight in seeing our members and their guests enjoy the patios and decks. During a wedding or private function, though, we must request that members utilize the lower patios rather than the upper and side decks. Kindly access the waterfront by following the brick pathway, rather than cutting through the main building or across the decks. Sandy feet, wet bathing suits, and beach gear are strictly prohibited from the main building at all times. The Thirsty Gull is our beach bar.
Please refrain from leaving items on tables early in the morning to reserve them for late afternoon picnics, as this frustrates those wanting to picnic throughout the day. PLEASE dispose of trash in receptacles provided. Kindly return all glassware to the bar.
BEACH & JETTY:
Lifeguards are on duty between the hours of 9 am to 5 pm on weekdays, and from 8 am to 6 pm on weekends and holidays, Memorial Day through Labor Day. While our lifeguards are vigilant, it is the responsibility of parents to closely supervise children at all times. We ask that you swim within the area designated by buoys.
All boats must be registered with the office, as there is a storage fee of $75. per boat per season. All boats must be removed prior to October 1st. The Owenego does NOT accept responsibility for stolen or damaged boats. Motorized boats and jet skis are prohibited from the beachfront at all times. Sailboats and paddle boats must access The Sound via the designated boating lane, cautiously avoiding the swim area.
