Question
Hi Denise,

We will be attending a school award luncheon at a local country club. Would you please let me know what is best suitable attire for our family to wear ( myself, husband and teenage son)

Answer
Jo-Ann,

If you call the local country club directly they will be happy to provide you with guidance for suitable attire.  Each club has slight variations, however, I can provide you with some ideas that traditionally fit most county club standards for attire.

Men and boys:  dress shirt, tie, and suit coat with dress slacks or khaki's

Women and girls:  A dress and heeled shoe, dress slacks/skirt with blouse and heel, no jeans, sweater or blouse, business casual attire, formal suit not required.

Hopefully this will help as you proceed and have a wonderful luncheon.
