Customer Question

If I am staying in a room at a golf club can the personnel search through my private/personal belongings while I am not in my room? Can they search inside of my golf bag if I leave it in their shed overnight?

Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
Police cannot enter your room without a warrant or an exception to the warrant requirement, but the golf club is not a government agency and is not bound by the 4th Amendment. They have the right to enter your room and their shed and to search through your belongings without your permission if they believe you're engaging in illegal acts.
