These dress rules are for the guidance of Members, their guests and visitors. They are intended to be clear, workable and consistent with standards of dress considered acceptable at modern day Golf Clubs. Members are expected to take personal responsibility by observing standards of dress that reflect well on themselves and the Club.
Visitors, visiting societies, visiting teams and players participating in open competitions should comply with these dress rules. It is the responsibility of all members to ensure that they, and their guests, adhere to the dress code and to report any issues to the Secretary, The Professional and his staff, Clubhouse staff or any member of the Board of Directors. The aforementioned people are the only ones authorised to address any infringements. Golfers should change their clothing in the locker rooms and not in the car park.
