Traditionally, golfers were very specific about what could be worn on the golf course. Tailored trousers, collared shirt and of course, golf shoes.
Golf shoes are a requirement for your health and safety however, as society has changed over the years golf has adapted. While we don’t want to list acceptable styles, colours or fabrics, we do request that you wear golfing attire. This means; no football tops, tracksuits or jeans please. And be aware, if you’re not dressed appropriately you may not be permitted on the course.
If you’ve never played golf before, the course probably isn’t the best place for you. We suggest you get some practice under your belt before you go out for the first time. Be considerate of competitive and social golfers on the course. If you’re struggling to keep up, sometimes the best thing to do is pick your ball up and try again on the next hole. No one will judge you, we were all beginners once!
All golfers will need their own clubs and golf bag. Sharing clubs or bags slows down the pace of play and is not permitted.

You will be expected to follow the group in front and not lead the group behind. Limit time looking for a lost ball to a maximum of 2 minutes. Adopt a “ready golf” style of play to limit waiting times.
If you require assistance in order to play golf, please let us know beforehand so that we can make things as easy as possible for you when you arrive. Our course is considered accessible for most disabled golfers and we’re always happy to help.
