Scioto Country Club Course and Clubhouse Rules
WELCOME to Scioto Country Club
In an effort to assist you with your golf experience, our management team has highlighted a few traditions of the Club we ask you to observe. If at any time you need help or guidance please see the Men's or Ladies Locker Room Manager or the Golf Shop Staff in the Professional Shop.
Cell Phone Use
Except in cases of medical emergency, the audible use of mobile devices is restricted to the parking lot, locker rooms, lounge areas, pool deck, restrooms and where permanent telephones are placed for member use. These areas do not include dining areas. Members and their guests must keep the ringers and speakers of their mobile devices on silent or vibrate and may discreetly, as not to offend any other member, use their mobile devices for silent data transmission in all areas of the Club.

On the golf course, audible use of a mobile device is restricted to the Shelter Houses and the Halfway House.
