Dress Standards and Expectations

Dress standards




    • Untucked golf shirts

    • Bulky ‘cargo’ shorts with external pockets.

    • Denim jeans and shorts

    • Non-collared shirts that are not Golf Industry marketed.

    • Exercise room clothing, sweat pants, sneakers, or attire purchased for use as workout gear, etc. is NOT acceptable on the course nor practice facility.

    • Tank tops, sleeveless shirts are not allowed anywhere green, grass.

    • Shoulders must be covered. Admittedly sleeveless vests etc. are RCC & golf industry acceptable as outer/over wear, but first layer golf wear must have shoulders covered.

LADIES Specific:

  • Sleeveless (golf style) shirts are acceptable provided it has a collar; ‘mock’ collars are acceptable.

  • Deep cut shirts with ample or close-to-ample cleavage displayed, and anything construed as provocative by the majority should be considered NOT acceptable. It would be disappointing to think members would need to challenge this subjective concern

  • Shorts and Skirts should go the knee or close to it. We well realize that the LPGA tour, and high-end golf shops do market, and aggressively, the shorter shorts etc. to those younger, youthful players, with attractive figures, etc. We have surveyed other local PRIVATE Country Clubs, who have similarly struggled with issues related to new styles, apparel which is geared to new adults, 20-40’s age and new generation. Rather than specifically defining further, we can only ask and expect that common sense prevail.


  • Golf attire must be emphatically enforced, understood as default. 

GUESTS STANDARDS Specific: same as member-gender standards.  The member is absolutely responsible for the appearance and attire of their guests.  If a guest shows up not dressed properly, the golf shop clearly must enforce a NO-PLAY situation. In the event of such a situation, we encourage supporting the golf shops’ merchandise, and to accept this policy in a peaceful non-contentious manner.  We must protect all the fellow members who abide by the same standards.

JUNIOR Golfers STANDARDS –This requires common sense and practical perception to enforce, especially on days of the junior programs etc. With child wear it is often hard to define, but it must note not be overlooked by the staff and parents/grandparents, regarding common sense to keep the bar at its highest level.

  • Golf attire must be emphatically enforced, understood as default.
