Welcome Back, Members! 


We are working hard to prepare the Club to reopen, and wanted to share the new health and safety measures we have put in place to keep you safe during these unprecedented times.

HRC has always been a place where members can feel welcomed and comfortable.  We have also always been committed to providing our community with the highest level of cleanliness. This commitment is important now more than ever.  As a result, we are further enhancing our club cleaning procedures and health guidelines to ensure your safety. 


Let's Keep Everyone Safe!
