Dress Regulations

Dress on the golf course and surrounds

Members and their guests, when playing golf, should always be neatly dressed in acceptable golf attire. Caddies should also comply with these requirements.

Acceptable golf attire is a collared shirt or a recognised golf crew necked polo shirt tucked in; tailored slacks; tailored shorts with either long or short sport socks and enclosed soft-spiked golf shoes or flat-soled sport shoes. Ankle socks are permitted.

Dress on the driving range

Dress on the driving range (and practice facilities) should be acceptable golf attire with the exception for beginners lessons or clinics run by the Perth Golf Academy when suitable sporting attire is allowed when accompanied by a Club Professional.

Clothing you can’t wear on the golf course or surrounds

  • Denim clothing of any kind. Elastic and drawstring tops, shorts or trousers (in lieu of a belt)
  • T-shirts, singlets, sweatshirts, hoodies and tracksuits
  • Clothing with advertising logos which do not comply with the AGU rules
  • Footwear with soles or heels liable to cause damage to the course
  • Rubber thongs, scuffs or work boots
  • Metal-spiked golf shoes

Women As above with the addition of skirts or shorts of modest length and with the exception of golf shirts which are to be tucked in or tailored shirts designed to be worn out (no lower than hip length).

In the Clubhouse

The minimum dress standard for all members and their guests in the Clubhouse is to reflect current community standards where smart casual is the requirement. Golf attire including enclosed soft-spiked golf shoes may be worn in the Clubhouse. Shirts tucked in unless designed to be worn out (this applies only to dress shirts, not golf shirts).  Shoes must be enclosed and of a clean and tidy standard. Leather sandals with a strap at the back are permitted.  Denim and workwear is allowed in the clubhouse provided it is clean and pressed, tidy with no rips or tears.

Clothing not to be worn in the Clubhouse includes:-

  • Elastic and drawstring top shorts or trousers (in lieu of a belt)
  • T-shirts, singlets, high vis clothing, sweatshirts, hoodies, tracksuits
  • Rubber thongs, scuffs or work boots
  • Metal-spiked golf shoes
  • Hats in the lounge or sprig-bar

Women As above, with the exception that women are permitted to wear sandals with or without a back retaining strap at any time.

In the Alfresco

Any items of clothing that would be acceptable either on the Golf Course and surrounds, driving range or in the Clubhouse is acceptable in the alfresco area.

Short Visits to the Club

When visiting the Club for a short period of time (5-10 minutes) to do business with the Golf Shop, Bar or Office, or to collect equipment from the Buggy Storage facility or locker rooms, it is permissible for members to be dressed in what could reasonably be deemed ‘acceptable street attire’ when judged by contemporary community standards.

Members should keep in mind the spirit of the Club’s dress rules and not abuse this privilege.

Pro Shop and Senior Club staff will be responsible for ensuring that members and their guests are adhering to these dress codes. To avoid embarrassment members are responsible for the dress of their guests. Members must not approach other members in relation to their dress.

Any person not complying with the above will be asked to leave the Club. Our aim is to maintain a high standard of acceptable dress both on and off the course. Members are asked to observe the dress standards to avoid embarrassment to themselves and their guest.
