Etiquette and Dress Code
While a modern-day golf club, North Foreland is well known for its rich heritage and firm traditions. We ask that members and visitors observe, and make their guests and children aware of, the Club’s etiquette and dress code. Therefore, to be allowed to access the courses and our clubhouse you must adhere to the following rules.
- Shorts must be tailored (must have belt loops, zipped fly and conventional / traditional side pockets) and worn with plain coloured knee length, mid-calf white ankle socks. No Trainer Socks Allowed (with the exception of ladies).
- Gentlemen’s shirts must be tucked in at all times on the course. Tailored cotton shirts (not T shirts or polo shirts) with collars and straight cut around the bottom edge and designed not to be tucked in can be worn outside the trouser in the Clubhouse.
- Denim clothing, collarless or sleeveless shirts, rugby / football shirts, training shoes, tracksuits, cargo trousers and beach / cargo shorts are not an acceptable standard of dress.
The only exceptions to the above rule are that: -
- Tennis players may wear clean dry tennis attire, tracksuits and tennis shoes in the clubhouse.
- Ladies may wear collarless / sleeveless shirts, blouses or dresses in the clubhouse.
