Nice comfortable clothing. Nothing formal. Men & women had comfortable shorts, knee, ankle and long pants on. Several people wore athletic shoes. A dress code can be found on their email site too.

I wore dress pants and a dressy blouse. My husband wore dress slacks and a button down shirt. I suggest dressing like you would at any upscale restaurant.
