DRESS CODE

Bandon Golf Club aims to operate a contemporary and forward thinking dress code policy, commensurate with a modern day golf club. It is in all our interests to maintain standards of casual but smart dress in keeping with golfing traditions. Golfers at Bandon Golf Club are therefore made aware that the following are required standards that must be adhered to both on the golf course and in the clubhouse.

ON THE GOLF COURSE: - Smart casual dress only permitted.

  • Tailored shorts must be worn with appropriate sports socks.
  • Trouser legs must not be tucked into socks.
  • Hats & caps must be worn as designed.
  • Golf shoes must be worn (soft spikes are recommended).
     

The following items of dress are NOT acceptable on the course.

Denim jeans, Singlets, Football, Rugby, Soccer, GAA & similar jerseys, Hoodies, Cargo pants/Combats or Tracksuits or Leisure suits.   

IN THE CLUBHOUSE: - Smart casual dress must be worn at all times

Golf shoes are not permitted in the lobby, upstairs bar or dining room nor are golf hats or caps. Shoes must be worn at all times when in the bar or dining room. Tailored denim jeans with no fade or tears are permitted in the clubhouse.

Under no circumstances are golf shoes to be discarded outside the front door of the clubhouse or in the entrance lobby. Members and guests are asked to be aware that entry to the bar/dining room without shoes is a breach of club code and will be treated as such.

The clubhouse has every facility required for changing into and from golfing apparel and changing in the car park is not recommended.

(The only exceptions to the above are Junior/Juvenile Beginner Golfers in their first year as allowed for by the Junior Officers)
