Dress Code & Etiquette

As our guest, we want you to enjoy a memorable golfing experience. We are a long-established private member’s club and, whilst our style is still traditional in many ways, it happily accommodates a modern country club approach.

We realise that dress codes vary from club to club, so to ensure you have an enjoyable, stress-free day please take note of the following guidelines.

  • Changing in the car park (including shoes) is not permitted
  • The Pro Shop, office or bar will provide you with the access code for the visitors changing rooms
  • The clubhouse has every facility for changing and towels are provided for showers.

On the course:

  • Conventional golf attire is required for all players.
  • Sports shirts other than golfing attire (such as football shirts) are not permitted
  • Trousers such as blue denims, cargo pants, combat trousers or tracksuits are not acceptable
  • Golf shoes with soft spikes are required on the course and allowed in the stud bar and on the balcony.

For Men

  • Shirts should be collared or roll neck.
  • All shirts are to be tucked-in to trousers or shorts.
  • Shorts should be knee length and tailored.
  • Ankle/trainer socks should be white, but knee-length socks may be any colour. 

For Ladies

  • Sleeveless shirts are permitted, but must have a collar.

Course Etiquette

  • Please repair your pitch marks and replace fairway divots.
  • Please use the seed boxes where available to fill your divots on par three holes.
  • Keeping up with the game in front makes a good round for everyone. If you fall behind the pace please allow players through. Four-balls should aim to play 18 holes in approximately 4 hours.
  • Mobile phones may not be used on the golf course except for navigational/yardage purposes. Calls may only be made in a medical emergency. Phones should be switched to “silent or vibrate” mode at all times.

Clubhouse Etiquette

  • Wi-Fi is freely available, however the clubhouse is designated a “quiet zone”, so please switch your devices to silent and be thoughtful of others. Calls should be made or received outside of the clubhouse public areas.
