For the last year or so, COVID restrictions have enforced the suspension of much of our Dress Code, however with the re-opening of the clubhouse, locker rooms and showers the Committee believes that the time is right to begin to reclaim something which is a source of pride to Pollok Members.
As a reminder to all Members, in particular those who have joined in the last 12 months, our Dress Code and Etiquette is part of the Pollok tradition and ethos, which adds to the source of pride of being a Member of this Club. As such, it is a Code which has been – and will be again – managed by the Caddymasters who have the Committee’s approval to enforce compliance or where appropriate deny access to the clubhouse or course. We would however expect members to willingly participate in re-establishing this code of conduct.
The Dress Code follows in this note and Members should familiarise themselves with the content. It will be re-established in stages and in the first instance will apply to the dress code on the course. It is a modern and flexible approach with few restrictions. In particular Members should be aware of the rule on trousers – and during the summer months, on shorts. It is incumbent on Members to ensure that their guests are similarly aware of what is acceptable to avoid embarrassment on the first tee.
Members are reminded that under no circumstances will football colours or similar accessories be permitted either on the course or within the precincts of the clubhouse.
Other matters relating to clubhouse procedures will follow later.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
Pollok aims to operate a forward-thinking dress code that is in keeping with golfing traditions.It is in all our interests to maintain reasonable standards and a clean and smart appearance is expected at all times on club premises.
Members, guests and visitors are asked to recognise the following guidance which is our required minimum standard and to ensure they comply with the detail and the spirit of it.
Course and Practice Areas
Caddymasters and Managing Secretary are responsible for overseeing adherence to our code and in the unlikely event that it should be necessary, have the authority to enforce it.
