Bristol & Clifton Golf Club aims to operate a contemporary and forward-thinking dress policy which is appropriate for a modern day members’ club, enabling members, their families and guests to be able to play golf and enjoy their time in the Clubhouse, to feel comfortable and welcome, whilst at the same time respecting the standards expected in a private members golf club.
The principles leading to this revised policy for members, guests and visitors are to:
Visitors to Bristol & Clifton 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 (including practice areas/putting greens) we do accept fashion changes very quickly and our policy is that any smart, recognised golf clothing and golf shoes with either soft or metal spikes or golf shoes with dimples should be worn. Tailored shorts (not cargo style) may be worn with coloured long or short socks and men’s shirts should be tucked in. Players may wear hoodies provided they are manufactured by a recognised golf brand.
In the Clubhouse, any smart casual clothing is acceptable although we draw the line at caps, flip flops, beach style shorts and obtrusive football/rugby shirts being worn. Smart denim wear is permitted within the Clubhouse and its immediate vicinity but only if they are clean, and are free of any fraying, holes, rips or tears. Shorts are permitted in the Dining Room on certain occasions but not for formal functions. Dirty, muddy, soiled or wet clothing is not permitted in the Clubhouse. Golf shoes may be worn in the Spike Bar. Shoes must not be removed in the clubhouse.
