- No reservation may be made until the WCCBOD has established the dates for Woodmont Club sponsored events. Once these dates have been established, reservations will be accepted.
- Each member household is allowed one weekend reservation and one weekday reservation per summer. Additional reservations beyond this must be approved by the WCCBOD.
