Dress Code & Etiquette

Everyone is welcome at South Staffordshire Golf Club and to ensure that you and your guests enjoy their visit we ask that you follow these simple rules:

Dress Code

  • On the course, conventional golfing attire is expected at all times. Denim jeans, training shoes, collarless shirts and prominently logoed shirts are not permitted on the course. Shirts shall be tucked in. Shorts if worn, should be tailored and worn with knee length socks or short white sports socks.
  • In the Clubhouse, please dress as you would expect at a golf course. Golf wear is permitted for morning coffee and lunch in the Clubhouse. Jackets, collars and ties, smart casual dress is permitted in all areas of the Clubhouse at all times. No jeans, combats, track suits, trainers, flip-flops or caps are to be worn. Sports bags and all other golf equipment are not permitted in the Club lounge or bar area. Clubs should not be taken into the Clubhouse.

Care of the course

  • Replace divots firmly.
  • Bunkers must be smoothed over by using the rakes provided. Please ensure all marks are raked even if not yours.
  • Pitch marks on the greens are to be repaired including, please, pitch marks which are not yours.
  • Wide wheel and electric trolleys may be used on the course in accordance with trolley directional signs, which must be observed at all times.
  • Visitors requiring to use personal one man electric buggies for medical reasons may do so subject to prior arrangement with the Club Manager and presentation of a letter from a doctor.
  • Please note that we reserve the right to ban buggies, and on rare occasions trolleys, when adverse weather conditions prevail - possibly at short notice.
  • Please allow greens staff to complete their work in your likely landing area before continuing play.
  • Litter should be placed in the bins provided.

To aid with the pace of play most visiting parties play in a fourball stableford format (we do not allow fourball medal). We therefore recommend that you choose a format that encourages continuous play. When calculating tee off times, please allow eight minutes for three balls and ten minutes for four balls.

Before you arrive

  • Please remember to book your tee times in advance. Occasionally, circumstances beyond our control may require us to adjust starting times if visitors are running late or numbers change.
  • A non-refundable deposit of £10 per head is required before a booking can be considered firm. In the event of the number attending being less than number originally booked, the fees payable for those that do arrive are the total fee agreed per head less the deposit per head paid. Deposits relating to no shows will not be refunded.
  • The Visitors’ Car Park is well sign posted and Members are able to use our Members’ Car Park. The Club cannot accept any responsibility for security of vehicles or equipment.

On arrival

  • If you are a visitor, please make sure that you have booked your Tee Time and paid your Green Fee before commencing play. We would suggest that Group Organiser’s collect payments in advance so that you can get booked in and playing as soon as possible.
  • Please register at the Professional Shop so that we know you are on site.
  • To aid the pace of play visitors play from the yellow tees. The white tees are for the exclusive use of Club members.
  • Golf is a game requiring concentration. We therefore ask that mobile phones are used solely in the Locker Room and Car Parks.

If you need to cancel

In the unlikely event that you have to cancel your booking we will do our best to offer you a suitable alternative.
