Faversham Golf Club is a traditional members' club and has a dress code. This in many ways is common sense however please ensure that the dress code is followed to avoid any embarrassment.
The basic principle is that traditional golfing attire is worn on the course and that the minimum standard of dress in the Clubhouse is what we would call smart casual.
It is the responsibility of all members both to comply with the clubs dress policy and to ensure that other members, guests and visitors do as well.
On the Course, practice area and putting greens
(i) All golfers must wear appropriate golf attire (the most appropriate is that which has been designed for golf) - jeans, shirts hanging outside trousers, shorts above ¾ mid-thigh or more than just below the knee, beach-wear or other sports-wear are NOT acceptable. Ladies may wear 'crop' type golf trousers.
(ii) Hats and visors are permitted but are not to be worn backwards.
(iii) Golf shoes must be worn; other types of footwear will not be permitted. Metal spikes are acceptable, but it is strongly suggested that metal or at least new plastic spikes be used when the ground is soft and especially in the winter.
