Alcoholic Beverage PolicyAs a provider of alcoholic beverages, the Club and its employees have a potential liability if a lawsuit is filed as a result of improper conduct by a member or guest who has been served at the Club. As a result, the Board of Directors has adopted the following Statement of Policy as to the service of alcoholic beverages to members and their guests. The Board urges each member to become familiar with this policy and support the staff in its enforcement.
It is the policy of the Long Beach Country Club that all employees participating in the sale or service of alcoholic beverages be specifically directed to:
Study and become familiar with all available material designed to enable them to detect evidences of intoxication of members or guests and to avoid serving intoxicated people.
Refuse to supply alcoholic beverages to any member or guest who appears to be intoxicated or on the verge of becoming intoxicated.
Suggest the use of a car service such as Uber or get another member to drive them home.
- Report to the Club Manager any incident involving intoxication on Club property; including, but not limited to, any member or guest who reprimands or abuses any employee for failure to supply alcoholic beverages to any member or guest who, in the judgment of an appropriate Club staff member, has or appears to have consumed an excessive amount of alcohol.
The Club Manager will instruct the appropriate staff members as to their authority to refuse service of alcoholic beverages to any member or guest who appears to be intoxicated or on the verge of becoming intoxicated. In the event a member disagrees with a staff member’s decision to refuse service of alcoholic beverages, he shall so advise the Club Manager within twenty-four hours thereafter. The Club Manager will review with the member who requests that review, the staff member and the Board of Directors.
