Dress Code and Mobile Phone Use

Dress Code and Use of Mobile Telephones

Great Barr Golf Club is a modern club, but we pride ourselves in maintaining many traditional standards.  In recent years several changes have been made to relax the dress code, particularly for the clubhouse. However, members and visitors are requested to comply with the reasonable requirements for dress and use of mobile phones listed below.


  • Shirts should be a recognisable golf shirt, we fully accept shirts with the rounded and turtleneck these days, if they are clearly golf shirt brands.
  • Shirts must be tucked into shorts or trousers
  • Football style or other sports clothing is not acceptable
