At Puttenham Golf Club we expect all our members, visitors and guests to respect our traditions and comply with our required standard of dress whether on the course or in the clubhouse. In compiling this dress code our aim is to put people at their ease by adopting a smart casual approach in keeping with today’s modern lifestyles.
On the Golf Course
You are required to wear recognised formal golf attire in the proper manner. Shirts must be fully tucked in unless designed to be worn outside, shorts must be tailored (tailored shorts with outside pockets are permitted) and worn with predominantly plain sports socks (shoe liners are acceptable).
The following are not permitted: Collarless or sleeveless T shirts; shirts cut above waist level; shirts or similar garments displaying slogans; combat or cargo type trousers/shorts; beach or elasticated shorts; denim; tracksuits; long trousers tucked into socks; trainers.
As above except that shirts with sleeves and a collar, shirts with a collar but no sleeves and shirts with no collar but with sleeves are permitted; shorts/skirts/skorts should be tailored and of an appropriate length.
In the Clubhouse
Smart casual (which can include smart denim not distressed, frayed or torn) is the expected dress code; when dining after golf players are expected to change from their golf clothing; for some special functions more formal attire, e.g. jacket and tie, may be required.
The following are not permitted in the main lounge and dining room at any time: golf shoes; hats or caps; tracksuits; shirts or similar garments displaying slogans; beachwear including flip flops; wet weather over-trousers or jackets.
Changing of attire is not permitted in the car park, unless you are teeing off from mid-afternoon onwards and there is a chance of the clubhouse being closed when you complete your round.
Notes: Shoes may be worn without socks in the lounge bar; a spike bar is provided for those not wishing to change from their golf shoes; we would expect you to change from wet or soiled golf clothing.
Mobile Phones: Mobile phone calls may be made or taken in the car park, but not within the clubhouse or on the course other than in an emergency. Silent browsing of texts and e-mails is permitted within the clubhouse.
Club staff have been authorised to ensure that these rules are followed and will refuse service to anyone not complying with the dress code, but it is the responsibility of all members, visitors and guests to comply with the detail and the spirit of these rules.
If the above guidelines leave you in any doubt then your attire is probably not acceptable.
The above dress code does not apply to Junior golfers up to the age of 14
