Southwick Park Golf Club

Dress Code

We seek to provide a friendly, relaxed and sociable environment in which golf can be played and enjoyed. Members and visitors are expected to wear smart golfing attire or smart casual clothes. We do not think it is realistic to specify exactly what this means but ask that members and visitors abide by the spirit of this code.

On the Course, golf shoes and golf attire must be worn. Golf attire means clothes that are generally available for purchase in Golf shops or similar. Players wearing shorts are expected to wear socks.

In the Clubhouse, golfing attire or smart casual clothing (including smart jeans, trainers, sandals or deck shoes) are acceptable.  Dirty or damp golfing attire is not allowed. The wearing of headwear is not permitted, except for religious headwear.

We would ask members and visitors to refrain from wearing any of the following either in the Clubhouse or on the Course: Dirty, torn or ripped clothing, clothing carrying large or offensive slogans, combat/cargo trousers, tracksuit bottoms, shorts or trousers with external pockets.

Please note, we would kindly request that members do not approach other members or guests if they feel there is an issue regarding the dress code but report it to either one of the Clubhouse Team or a Committee member for them to deal with.
