Pool Rules

The following rules and regulations are for the protection and benefit of all members. They have been established to assure safe and sanitary operation of the club facilities. Parents are requested to instruct children to observe all rules and obey the instructions of the club managers and staff. The Manager on duty is authorized to enforce and assure that all rules are followed. Such authority has been granted by the Board of Directors in accordance with Club Marinole by-laws.


Access to Wi-Fi is free, just ask a guard or manager for the password.


You must check in at the front desk with the staff member working the desk. We implemented a new electronic check-in system mid-summer of 2020.  This summer, we are including individual pictures of each family member.  Keep an eye out for Registration Day in the spring.  If you can’t make it, we will take your picture on your first visit.  If you are not a member but would like to join, you can sign up at the front desk, register online, or email us at info@clubmarinole.com.

When entering the pool area, tell the staff on duty your last name and they will mark you as present. Staff reserves the right to deny entry to anyone not listed on your membership. Please see “Guests” for further information.
