South Herts Golf Club

Dress Code

The Dress Code at South Herts is based on the simple tenet that we expect golfers to wear ‘accepted golf clothing’ on the course. Off the course it is a practical and flexible dress code, and we ask visitors/guests to abide by it in the same way as South Herts members are expected to. Members and visitors/guests are requested to comply with these reasonable requirements to avoid any possibility of embarrassment. The Secretary and members of staff are empowered to ask any person not suitably attired to amend their mode of dress or withdraw from the Course or Clubhouse. On occasions, these dress regulations may be relaxed by order of the Captain, or in his absence the Secretary or a member of the Committee.
