dress code & etiquette

Modern. Smart. Classic.

Like the club itself

South Staffs shares golf’s unique heritage with rules that dictate how to play and an etiquette on sportsmanship and apparel.

While we are a modern and progressive club, we believe in upholding certain formalities and protocols which respect the elegance of the game.

By adhering to these standards, members and visitors can enjoy the course and clubhouse to the full, while avoiding potentially embarrassing transgressions.

Guide to dress code and etiquette

  • Tailored golf shorts must be above the knee and worn with predominantly white visible socks. No black or coloured socks are permitted with shorts. Cargo trousers and shorts (cargo pockets defined as side exterior pockets) are not allowed
  • Shirts, (collarless now allowed) unless by design must be tucked into trousers/shorts.
  • No Hoodies of any kind are permitted on the golf course.
  • Trousers with elasticated bottoms or track suit style trousers are not allowed.
  • Baseball hats should not be worn backwards.
  • We do not allow denim, football or rugby like attire, tee shirts, tank tops, tennis shorts, jogging shorts, cargo shorts, gym shorts or cut offs.
  • Only proper wet gear to be worn on the course. No outdoor coats/cagoule style allowed.
  • Footwear must be recognised golf shoes and be worn with either metal, soft spikes or pimpled soles.

  • No Hoodies of any kind are permitted on the golf course.

In the clubhouse:

The Club is continuing to develop a relaxed and convivial environment in the bars and lounge so golf attire is quite acceptable in the clubhouse after finishing a round with exception:

  • No flip flops or sliders allowed.
  • No headwear allowed anywhere inside the club except for religious wear.
  • No shorts allowed in the dining room after 7.00PM.
  • Smart denim jeans may be worn if they are not of the torn or ripped variety. Shoes, that have been worn or are intended to be worn on the course may not be worn in the Danescourt lounge and dining room and we require golfers to change out of any wet or dirty clothing before entering the spike bars.
  • No obtrusive football shirts are permitted.
