Etiquette & Dress Codes
Strathfield Golf Club is a friendly modern club that understands dress sense and standards vary according to the individual. However as a respected private club we have to insist on minimum dress standards for the pleasure of all people playing on the course or enjoying the ambience of our clubhouse.
Shirts: Shirts must be worn at all times and have a “fold over collar” or “mock collar”. Advertising logos or golf motifs must be limited to pocket size. Shirts may be worn outside if tailored to do so. Women should wear smart casual tops or sport shirts.
Shorts & Trousers: Belts should be worn (no drawstrings). Cargo shorts and trousers with outside pockets are acceptable. Denim shorts or trousers are not allowed on the course, however tailored denim trousers may be worn in the clubhouse.
Socks: Socks must be worn when playing on the course – predominantly white low cut anklet or shorter crew length socks are acceptable.
Shoes: Soft Spiked Golf shoes or sport shoes to be worn on the course (no steel spikes or joggers). Enclosed boat shoes may be worn in the clubhouse without socks.
Caps: Caps must be worn in the appropriate manner and with the peak facing forward. Caps or hats must not be worn in the Clubhouse at any time.
The following are not acceptable items of dress:
- Board shorts, Sports shorts, Tracksuits, Elastic or drawstring Shorts/Trousers
- Hawaiian style shirts or T-shirts, offensive or excessive printing or logos
- Football wear or beachwear
- Rubber thongs, sandals or masseurs
- Camouflage shorts or trousers
All players must carry and use a sand bucket and repair all divots.
Bunkers must be raked and pitch marks on the greens repaired.
You can help by:
- Repairing plug marks on greens
- Raking bunkers after use
- Carrying a sand bucket and replace and repair divots
- Not littering the course
- Obeying directional signs, rope placement, and keeping carts outside of the areas marked with blue lines
Before leaving a bunker, players should carefully fill and smooth over all holes and footprints. Always leave the rake in the flat of the bunker with the handle pointing towards the tee of the hole being played and parallel to the line of flight of the ball. Rakes should be placed as far from the edge as possible.
1. Always enter the bunker at the lowest point.
2. Pull the rake toward you as you exit the bunker.
3. If required, rake other affected areas.
4. Do not pile sand at the edge of the bunker. Push back excess sand with reverse side of rake.
- Remove any loose turf from the affected area.
- Knock in all sides of the edge of the divot with your club or your shoe.
- Fill with sand and smooth over surface with the sole of your shoe.
Repairing Ball Marks
- Always start at the back of the mark and push forward with the repairer.
- Use repairer around all sides and slowly ease turf toward the centre of the mark. Do not lift the soil upwards.
- Lightly tap down with putter.
Handling the Flag
Players should ensure that, when putting down bags or the flagstick, no damage is done to the putting green and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to it when handling the flagstick or in removing the ball from the hole.
The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.
- Don’t drop the flagstick on the putting surface as it will cause damage.
- Always lower the flagstick by club
- ….or by hand.
- Avoid damage to surrounds by placing the stick in the centre of the cup.
Players are requested NOT to use their putter to remove their golf ball from the hole.
To ensure an enjoyable game for everyone a round of golf should be completed in 4 hours (Stableford or Par) or 4 hours 15 minutes (Stroke). Stroke must not be played during social play. Players are expected to consider others and call the following group through if they fall behind the speed of play.
You can help everyone’s game ‘flow’ if you remember:
- There are other players on the course apart from yourself
- To call following players through when a ball is lost
- To be ready to play your shot when it is your turn
Commencement of Play
All players are required to report to the Golf Shop 15 minutes prior to commencing their round of golf.
