SPGC Dress Code Southwick Park Golf Club seeks 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.
Clubhouse Golfing attire or smart casual clothing (including smart jeans, trainers, sandals or deck shoes) are acceptable. During the summer months (Apr-Sep) smart and clean dimpled golf shoes are permitted in the Bar Areas. Dirty or damp golfing attire is not allowed. The wearing of headwear is not permitted, except for religious headwear.
Dressing for the Occasion Event, Function or Society publicity will highlight the dress code requirements:
Smart Casual: Includes smart jeans and trainers unless otherwise specified
Smart: Smart trousers, shirt and jacket with or without a tie (or equivalent for ladies)
Formal: As advertised for occasion
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 staff or a Committee member for them to deal with.
