The Dress Code and Etiquette

Many people who play and fall in love with the game of golf do so because of its fine history, traditions and sportsmanship; factors that seem to set golf apart from so many other sports these days.

So when you visit us please respect our Course Code, which consists of two parts – Playing Etiquette and Dress Guidelines.

Playing Etiquette

We want you to thoroughly enjoy your visit to the Club but when playing here you have a responsibility to behave considerately and in a manner that does not spoil the enjoyment of other visitors or members.

Slow play - We know that not every golfer plays to the same standard or speed, so please be considerate to other players – do not hold them up but simply call them through. This will ensure that you and your group are not under pressure to hurry shots and It will enable others to fully enjoy their game. As a guide, a fourball should take no longer than 4 hours.

Bunkers - Our bunkers are challenging to play even when properly raked – if left unraked our bunkers can be virtually impossible. So please do not leave a bunker without raking it.

Course care – Please help us to keep the course in the superb condition you'd expect to find it in by replacing divots and repairing pitch marks.
