Dress & Etiquette - Pymble Golf Club

Dress & Etiquette

Consideration for other Members is vital for harmony in a successful Club and a style of dress, which may give offence to others, should be avoided both in the Clubhouse and on the Course.

The following guidelines have been set down by the Board, but must be regarded as the minimum standards acceptable.  The Board has instructed staff to strictly enforce dress regulations and their judgement as to the suitability of attire shall be considered final.

Members are at all times responsible for the attire of their guests.  Guests must be informed of our dress policy in advance to avoid embarrassment.
