Dress Code

Barton-on-Sea Golf Club seeks to provide a relaxed and sociable ambience in which golf can be played and enjoyed. Members and visitors are required to conform to the Club’s dress code, which requires a high standard of smart conventional golf and casual clothes.

On the Course

We would ask all golfers to wear a high standard of smart ‘golf clothing’ while on the course, i.e. ‘golf clothing’ are items which are generally accepted by most recognised clubs and that are generally available for purchase in professionals’ shops.

Men may wear tailored shorts (not cargo shorts) with either long socks, predominantly white short socks or trainer socks.

Shirts must be tucked into trousers / shorts.

Ladies: leggings and jeggings are not allowed as playing attire unless worn with skorts or shorts.


(Including just shoes) is not permitted in the car park or elsewhere, other than changing rooms.

In the Clubhouse, Restaurant, Spike Bar & Snooker Room

Formal Attire and Smart Casual Clothing are equally acceptable in the clubhouse unless otherwise specified for functions such as post-match meals, presentations, dinner/dance etc.

Most of us are aware of what is generally regarded as ‘Smart Casual Clothing’ and you are asked to both follow and respect the majority of the members and visitors by complying with this.

Shorts, open toed sandals and deck shoes may be worn without socks in the clubhouse but not in the restaurant area of the clubhouse.

Although not wishing to go into absolute detail, hats, beach flip-flops, trainers, tracksuits, faded or ripped blue jeans are not considered to be smart casual nor are tee-shirts with slogans.

Shirts must be tucked into trousers / shorts unless designed to be worn outside.

We would ask you not to wear damp or dirty golfing attire into the 19th.

Please ensure compliance with this dress code to avoid any future embarrassment. Committee members, Board members, Golf Co-ordinator, Bar & Catering, Professional and Office staff have the authority to challenge any person improperly or unsuitably dressed. We look forward to welcoming you to Barton on Sea Golf Club.
