Dress Code & Mobile Telephone Etiquette

Dress CodeEllesborough Golf Club is a traditional members’ club, but one that seeks to move forward with the times.  In recent years it has relaxed its dress code and regulations for using mobile phones/PDAs. To avoid any embarrassment, Members, guests and visitors are requested to ensure that they comply with the detail and spirit of the dress code and mobile phone regulations set out below.


On the golf course, Ellesborough Golf Club asks members, their guests and visitors to observe standards of dress consistent with the traditions and conventions of the game of golf, whilst taking account of current golf fashion. For the avoidance of doubt, this means appropriate tailored clothing as would be purchased in a golf retail outlet and excludes blue denim jeans, tracksuits, training shoes or combat trousers.

In the clubhouse, smart, clean, dry, un-torn casual attire and footwear are appropriate at all times, unless otherwise stipulated. Clean, dimple moulded golf shoes are permitted throughout the clubhouse. Changing (including just shoes) is not permitted anywhere other than in the locker rooms.


All Mobile Phones/PDAs must be on Silent at all times and, except in the case of genuine emergency, must not be used as a phone in the Clubhouse or on the Course.

Other uses – texting, emailing, Internet, diary, etc – are permitted providing the equipment is on Silent.  Members, guests and visitors are requested to be considerate of others when operating their mobile phones/PDAs in these modes.
