PJCC Golf Policies and Procedures

Food and Beverage

All food and beverages must be purchased from the course or Port Jefferson Country Club. The introduction of food and beverages to the golf course or tennis courts and grounds is prohibited.



Failure to follow this policy will result in suspension of golf or tennis privileges.

Tee Times and Reservations

Tee times are every nine (9) minutes. The official time is the clock installed at the 1st tee. All members of the group must be present, signed in with the pro shop and ready to tee off twenty minutes before their exact tee time. The pro shop will reassign times of those who fail to present themselves twenty minutes before their exact tee time assess a no show fee.

Only one tee time may be reserved for any person per day. Any players wishing to play more than one round in a day may do so at the discretion of the pro shop.

The pro shop is obliged to fill twosomes and threesomes when players are available. The pro shop may, if necessary, reschedule the starting time of a twosome in order to facilitate the flow of play on the 1st tee.


Cancellations and No Show policy

Cancellations or changes of tee time reservations are permitted until the day of play. Failure to make changes or cancellations prior to that period will result in a no show charge of $25 per player for 18 hole reservations or $25 per player for 9 hole reservations.

If a member or their guest fail to show up for their tee time and have not cancelled the time tee prior to the reservation, a no show charge of $25 per player for 18 hole reservations or $25 per player for 9 hole reservations will be assessed.

This fee will be charged to the credit card of the player who reserved the tee time.
