Maintaining a sensible standard of dress

Northumberland Golf Club, whilst wishing to ensure that all members, visitors and guests dress appropriately, does not wish to be over-prescriptive; the Committee would rather leave it to the good sense of those concerned.

Everyone is asked to respect our standards and no-one should be offended if they are asked to leave the Course or the Clubhouse in the event they are unable to comply.

Dress Code

Dress Code 
Northumberland Golf Club, whilst wishing to ensure that all members, visitors and guests dress appropriately, does not wish to be over-proscriptive; the Committee would rather leave it to the good sense of those concerned. 
  
Formal Dress  
Formal style dress is required in the Dining Room on Wednesday lunchtimes only with all other times when smart casual dress is acceptable. This does, however, allow full freedom of movement to all golfers, visitors and guests around the remainder of the clubhouse. 
  
There may also be occasions when the clubhouse is being used for an event which the Committee have decided will be a formal event but on those occasions, advance notice will be given on the notice boards in the clubhouse and on the website. 
  
Formal Dress Style  
This is defined as either: 
Jacket, business shirt with collar and tie 
Jacket, business shirt with collar and no tie 
Business shirt with collar and tie 
Smart Casual Dress   
Stylish and smart casual clothes will be welcomed and acceptable in all areas of the clubhouse other than the areas outlined above. 
  
However, there are some types of clothing that most would find unacceptable and the Committee considers that the following guidance is appropriate to maintain the Club’s historical high standards. 

Clubhouse, Golf Course & Practice Area 
The wearing of metal spikes is not permitted at Northumberland Golf Club except for those with a medical exemption. 
Tracksuit tops or bottoms, blue denim jeans and other blue denim clothing, t-shirts, training shoes; cargo shorts/trousers with large exterior pockets should not be worn. 
  
Shorts should be tailored and knee length or just above the knee without 'cargo' pockets.  
  
Shirts should be tucked into trousers and shorts. 

Lounges 
On hot or wet days, golfers should change into fresh clothing before entering the lounges. Showers and towels are provided to facilitate this. 
  
Outer wear such as golf shoes, waterproof golf clothing, top coats, anoraks, windproof clothing and caps may not be worn in the lounges. 

Car Park 
Players should change any clothing in the locker room and not in the car park.
