What is the Dress Code?
Please familiarize yourself, each member of your family and your guests with the MCC dress code. We understand that society is becoming more casual in their dress habits, but feel that our dress code is very liberal in that it recognizes and allows for a wide latitude of options. It is the member’s responsibility to advise their guests of the dress code in advance to prevent any embarrassment. Members and guests are responsible for proper golf attire. Shirts and shoes must be worn. Shirts must have sleeves (men) and a collar. Mock turtlenecks & full turtlenecks are acceptable. Unacceptable attire includes the following: short shorts, tennis shorts, cut-offs, gym shorts, t-shirts, sweats, work denim, tank tops, halter tops and any ripped, torn or frayed clothing. All junior golfers age 18 and under may wear neat jeans, tennis shorts and tee shirts. If anyone arrives in inappropriate attire, you will be invited to purchase suitable golf attire from the Golf Shop. Pool attire is strictly prohibited in the Clubhouse
Can I bring my own cooler?
Outside food & beverage products are prohibited on MCC property, including the golf course and pool. We ask that you purchase your items from the selections available to you at the Club. Our service staff is instructed to report any instances of outside food & beverage to management.
Do I tip my server?
All member charged food and beverage purchases incur an automatic 20% service charge. This charge is pooled with 15% going to the service staff and 5% going to the house. Cash sales do not have an automatic service charge. It is acceptable to pay additional gratuity to the service staff at your discretion.
Do I need a reservation for dining?
Reservations are required for events specifying “Reservations Required.” Regular dining service does not require an advance reservation, however, if you are planning on bringing a large group (party of 8 and over) we appreciate reservations as it allows us to staff for the best level of service.
How can I make a payment on my member account?
Member account statements are emailed out on the 1st of each month. Payments are due within 30 days of the statement date. Payments may be made online via the member portal using your member log-in. Accounts may be set up for processing with a credit card or ACH. Credit card payments will incur a 3% convenience fee, ACH payments will incur a 1% convenience fee (effective June 1, 2019). Auto processing may also be set up through the member portal and will process on the 6th of each month.
Access to the member charge account online is available to the member designated as “head of household” on the account (with their username and password), this is determined by whomever was listed first on the membership application.
I own a Golf Car, can I use it MCC?
Moorhead Country Club prohibits the use of private Golf Cars. The only exemption is for residents of the Moorhead Country Club development as stated in the property covenants. Those members are charged an annual trail fee of $300 plus MN sales tax. MCC has Golf Cars available for rental at a per use rate of $20/seat for 18-holes including tax. Seasonal Golf Car rentals are available for $640+tax/Season/Single Seat; $960+tax/Season/Family (For golf car rental, family use is defined as two seats on the same golf car for anyone in your household under your membership).
What's the scoop on Food & Beverage Minimums?
All memberships have F&B requirements. Our regular food and beverage operations are not open to the general public. They are an amenity for the membership. To support this amenity, F&B minimums are in place to encourage member usage and support. Golf and Social Membership have F&B monthly minimums of $75/month all 12 months of the membership year. Pool memberships have F&B minimums of $75/month for the months of June, July, and August. Minimums are calculated monthly and cannot be carried over to subsequent months or pre-paid. Gift Certificates may not be purchased to meet F&B minimums. Only sales of food and beverage items, exclusive of tax and gratuity, are applied to the minimum requirement. MCC does not have an off-sale liquor license and cannot sell sealed alcoholic containers to satisfy the minimum. The minimum is calculated monthly beginning with the first day of the month and ending with the last day of the month. If at the end of the monthly billing cycle, the member has not spent the minimum, the difference between the amount spent and $75 will be charged to their member account. Corporate Memberships have F&B requirements of $3000/annually.
SNOWBIRDS: If you have a permanent alternate address for seasonal months, please contact the MCC business office to set up your Snowbird status for F&B minimums for the upcoming season. Snowbird status cannot be applied retroactively. Snowbird status allows three months of reapplied minimums for the months of January, February & March. Snowbirds minimums will be absorbed in the remaining 9 months and carry monthly minimums of $100 from April-December.
What is the Membership Year?
MCC’s membership year runs April 1 through March 31. We are not on the traditional calendar year. The first day of each new membership year is April 1 and concludes on March 31. Membership is an annual agreement. Billing for annual membership dues will appear on your January member statements. Dues for renewing memberships are due by April 1 or arrangements made for installed billing are needed by April 1. Necessary resignations of membership are accepted in the month of March only by written submission to the MCC Business Office.
