    33 Jeez! Maybe not a bad thing as it sounds like you missed out on a carvery menu of: Cup-a-soup, Rustlers micro-burger with crinkle cut McCain and an arctic roll!

    Hope the sarnies were nice

    These clubs have a cheek, they'll be asking you to wear a jacket and tie for bangers and mash next!

    (bear in mind this club does NOT have a website and does not communicate via email)
    I think it should go like :-

    The person who takes responsibility for the group - is the organiser and should inform the players and should know all the booking conditions(dress code, handicap requirements etc).

    What should the Organiser do and expect from club - I would expect a letter or email be sent when booking is confirmed enclosing matters such as dress codes. However to be blunt(if I am allowed to be) as an organiser going to a older style golf club, you should have been asking in detail before booking, to ensure it met your don't change at lunchtime requirement.

    I suppose a lesson learnt but both parties sound like partly to blame(them for not sending out dress code requirements and you for not asking), and really could not have made for a pleasant day for you.

    Re: Dress Code - Who is responsible?

    I think there are still a few clubs around that would expect you to wear Jacket and Tie at Lunch.

    they would more likely be the old fashioned traditional Members clubs and prob a clue might also be if they didn't have lady members.

    some of the comments one these threads always surprise me that many would not visit a a top course just because of some dress code issue (not the OP, this is different). How difficult is it to wear a pair of shoes/ Trousers to visit a top course??

    Well there will be a hell of a lot of clubs and indeed mainly all the best clubs in the GB that you shouldn't visit then.

    Shoes and trousers are fine obviously. Jacket and ties though, just gives off this image of some pompous up-themselves club that you wouldn't to spend time in I think.

    Never been faced with the decision yet so not sure whether i'd go/not go, but I do know that if it was collar & tie I'd want to find out that it was the restaurant that was 'top' too not just the course

    Bit off topic but a lunchtime carvery doesn't outwardly suggest its worthy of a jacket/collar/tie dealy, more of a pub chain menu that

    Matter of opinion I guess but to me it's worth making the effort to play courses like Rye, RSG and Swinley Forest.

    These things happen Sam.. swapped a few messages with Big Steve and George this week about it. Blame all aimed at Club, not the organiser! In the days I ran a Soc, everywhere was J&T after, the odd one wanted mid round change of clothes.

    Trouble is, some of these places are still wealthy (and arrogant) enough to not be overly bothered about Customer Service and good manners. It's only when the cash starts to dry up they have a change of attitude.

    Growing up in Surrey in the 80s, I remember when you approached some clubs to be a member or to visit, they just told you to F.O. Now I get 5 emails a week begging me to go and play!
