Dress Code for the clubhouse applies to Members, Guests and Societies etc. but not to external events such as weddings where a private space has been booked.

Standard Dress Code:

Gillingham Golf Club is a progressive Club and respects the fact that fashions change. Consequently we have recently introduced a slightly more enlightened dress code for the bar and restaurant areas.

Unless there is a function that has been advertised as Formal or Smart Casual the following clothing is acceptable as Standard Dress:

CLEAN golf clothing, but NOT golf shoes or Golf trainers (unless in the Stud Bar)

Clean, smart jeans, but no tie-dyed or splits/ zips other than where they should be

Casual shoes and clean trainers

Deck shoes may be worn without socks

Tailored shorts may be worn

T shirts with a collar, which may be worn in or out

Shirts may be worn in or out

Not Permitted

T shirts without a collar

Combat/Cargo shorts or trousers

Hats must not be worn in the clubhouse

Anyone unacceptably dressed will be asked to change or possibly move in to the STUD BAR where the dress code is more relaxed.

The Stud Bar

Has a more relaxed dress code and golf shoes may be worn but you will have to use the changing room toilet facilities or remove your shoes to use the toilet at the top of the stairs.


Social Events

The Club organises many social events and all Members and their guests are invited to participate.

Dress code will fall into three categories and will be advertised with the event and decided by the event organiser. They are as follows:


Gents Formal Dress:

Dinner suit and tie or lounge suit and tie.

Formal shoes

Ladies Formal Dress

Formal evening dress

Cocktail dress

Evening trousers and top

Formal shoes

Smart Casual

Gents smart casual

Long trousers (no combat/cargo shorts/trousers)

Shirt (tucked in or not) with collar (with or without jacket and tie)

Closed shoes

Ladies smart casual

Dresses, skirts or trousers (which may be cropped below the knee) or culottes

Blouses or smart tops

Shoes, boots or sandals


Casual wear is the same as our Standard Dress Code in the clubhouse and restaurant areas when there is no specific function.

Dress Code (General)

Gillingham Golf Club expects Members, Guests, Visitors and Societies to observe and respect the Club’s dress codes.

The Club’s Secretary/Manager, Professional, Staff and Committee Members have the authority to enforce the dress code and members or guests may be asked to leave the clubhouse or the golf course if they are inappropriately dressed.
