Dress Code

West Byfleet Golf Club seeks to provide members, guests and visitors alike with a memorable golfing experience and asks that everyone is aware of and observes the following criteria.

ON THE GOLF COURSE

SHIRTS

Gentlemen’s shirts should have sleeves and a collar. They should be tucked into the waistband of shorts or trousers. Ladies’ shirts without sleeves should have collars. Ladies’ shirts may be worn loose if so designed.

Shorts & Trousers

Gentlemen may wear smart tailored shorts, which should be worn with either knee-length socks of any colour or predominantly white short socks clearly visible above the golf shoe. Cargo-style shorts, denims or trousers with patch pockets are not permitted.

Footwear

Proper golfing footwear should be worn. Trainers are permitted for Juniors only.

Headwear

Where caps or hats with peaks are worn, the peak should face forward.

IN AND AROUND THE CLUBHOUSE

Smart casual dress is the norm.

Whilst jackets and ties - or the equivalent for ladies - are welcome at any time, they are only required for some social events.

For some other social events, a dress code more relaxed than smart casual may be introduced.

Shirts

Gentlemen’s shirts should have sleeves and a collar. Shirts may be worn loose if so designed. Golf shirts should remain tucked into the waistband of shorts or trousers.

Shorts and Trousers

Smart tailored shorts may be worn in all areas of the clubhouse and until 6.30pm in the Dining Room. Cargo-style shorts or trousers with patch pockets are not permitted. Smart denim jeans of any colour are acceptable.

Footwear

Golf shoes, including pimple style or hybrid golf shoes, may be worn in the Spike Bar but not in the Main Bar, Sun Lounge or Dining Room. Closed sandals, deck shoes and fashion-style trainers may be worn, with or without socks, in all areas in and around the clubhouse, except in the Dining Room after 6.30pm.

Headwear

Is not permitted in the Spike Bar, Main Bar, Sun Lounge or Dining Room. 

GENERAL

All clothing must be clean and smart. Rugby shirts, track/shell suits, jogging bottoms, non-tailored shorts or trousers are not permitted on the golf course or in any areas in or around the clubhouse.

Anyone concerned about compliance of others to the dress code should not please confront or criticise them directly, but raise their concerns with the Professional Shop, the Bar or Office Staff.

GOLF SHOES MAY ONLY BE CHANGED IN THE CHANGING ROOMS AND NOT IN THE CAR PARKS
