Guest Policy

Guests are allowed at the DFC as long as they are signed-in and accompanied by a member. The price is $5.00 per guest. Please sign your guests in via your Member Portal or at the front desk.

Groups of 10 guests or more require prior authorization before coming to the club. Please call the office or email us no less than one week before your event.

Long-term guest passes are available for house guests that are staying for less than six months (e.g., grown children, in-laws, grandkids). Please inquire at the front office for more details.

Lost & Found

The lost and found is located on the patio near the admin office during the summer, and inside the game room during the rest of the year. Any items that are left at the club will be placed in the lost and found bins. The lost and found will be cleared weekly, so please be sure to look for your items in a timely manner.

Wireless Internet Access

Duke University wireless networks can be accessed throughout the clubhouse building, fitness center, patios, and pools. No password needed.


Members are issued new parking decals at the beginning of every membership year (April 1). Parking decals should be placed on the driver’s side lower corner of the windshield. Vehicles without current decals are subject to ticketing and towing through Duke Parking.

All guests and visitors must check in with the admin office to receive a temporary one-day parking pass.

DFC Pro Tip — you can park at the DFC for all home football and basketball games!

Non-DFC Members are sometimes able to participate in DFC programming such as summer camps and tennis lessons. Please contact the club to learn about what may be available.
