West Surrey seeks to provide a relaxed and sociable ambience in which golf can be played and enjoyed. The game of golf, amateur and professional, has always set high standards of etiquette for its participants and Members and visitors are required to conform to the Club’s dress code which requires a high standard of smart conventional golf and casual clothes.
We would, therefore, ask you to comply with the following:
On The Course
We would ask all golfers to wear a high standard of smart ‘golf clothes’ i.e. ‘golf clothes’ are items which are accepted by most recognised clubs and that are generally available for purchase in Professionals’ shops. Men’s shorts to be tailored and can be worn with one coloured ankle socks, shoe liners or knee length socks (preferably white).
Trainers, sandals or flip-flops, jeans style or denim clothing of any sort, track or leisure suits, rugby/football shirts, T-shirts, sweaters without shirts, garments displaying slogans, combat or cargo type trousers/shorts are not considered to be smart golf attire.
In the Clubhouse, Lounge and Dining Room
In the clubhouse, smart casual is the order for the day - most of us are aware of what is generally regarded as ‘Smart Casual Clothing’ and you are asked to both follow and respect the majority of members and visitors by complying with thus ruling out T and other collarless shirts, leisure shorts, flip- flops, trainers and head wear.
We would suggest that all golfers should change from the clothes that they have worn while playing. This helps to keep areas clean and fresh for all to use. Clothes that have clearly suffered from the elements will not be allowed in the clubhouse lounge.
Due to weather conditions golf shoes of any description are not allowed unless the Club has specifically relaxed this rule for the summer months.
Ladies are requested to observe the spirit of the Dress Code where, because of differences in male and female attire, it is inappropriate for them to observe the letter of it.
