Download a PDF copy of the rules HERE

NO GLASS or breakable containers are permitted inside the Cabana Club gates!  This is a requirement per the State of California and County of Santa Clara for operation.

LRCC grounds are restricted to members and their PAID guests.    

A guest is any non-­member on the Cabana Club grounds at any time whether in the pool or not.  Members must sign in guests upon entering the Club grounds and Guest fees or passes ($3/guest) must be deposited in one of the locked Sign-­In podiums.  This is a requirement for our insurance coverage policy and continued liability protection.  Members are allowed up to five (5) guests without prior approval.  Six (6) or more guests constitute a party and must be arranged through the Parties Coordinator two weeks in advance.

Penalties for violating Glass or Guest Fees Rules:
1st offense: written warning

2nd offense: $100 fine with key turned off until fine paid

3rd offense: $100 fine with Board review of suspension of membership, key turned off until next Board meeting/review
