West Surrey Golf Club

Dress Code

In any Golf Club, the Dress Code is a clear way to ensure all who visit the Club, be they Members or Visitors, on the Course or in the Clubhouse, can feel confident that they share the accepted standards of the Club. These are our accepted standards and we would like you to follow them.

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.

  • Golf shoes to be worn
  • Men’s shorts to be tailored and can only be worn with white ankle socks, shoe liners or knee length socks, either plain white or with a discreet logo
  • Men’s shirts will always be tucked in at the waistband
  • Golf hats if baseball style to be worn with peaks to the front

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 our dress code for Members and visitors by complying with this. This means that T and other collarless shirts, leisure shorts, flip- flops, men’s sandals, trainers and head wear are not permitted.

  • Tailored shorts are permitted (including Tennis Shorts)
  • Shoes may be worn without socks
  • Men’s shirts to be tucked in at the waistband

For some events in the Clubhouse and Dining Room, a Jacket and Tie will be required for Gentlemen. The Organiser, Match Captain or Host will inform Members and Visitors in advance should this be the case.

We would suggest that all golfers and tennis players 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. Tennis players are welcome in the bar unchanged to buy drinks for consumption on the patio or in the bar area.

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. The above dress code does not apply to Junior Golfers who have their own guidance in the Junior Handbook.

Members are responsible for ensuring that their guests are aware of and observe our dress code when visiting the Club. Anyone concerned about the dress code of others should neither confront or criticise them. Any concerns should be raised with the Club Secretary, Front of House team, Club Professional, Men’s or Ladies’ Captains. Thank you.
