    Re: Jacket and Tie

    In the last 12 months I have played at RSG, St Georges Hill, the Berkshires, West Hill, Worplesdon, Hankley and Walton Heath, all required a change into jacket and tie for the dining room. No big deal IMHO.

    The only club we have in the north east that still has these "antiquated" rules
    Is "The" Northumberland golf club
    Though I believe they have 3 options now ( recently changed )
    Jacket & tie
    Jacket & shirt
    Shirt & tie

    Have yet to play there
    But am doing so in August, whilst my club has a county game on, so have course courtesy
    Funnily enough, we're entitled to play their course, but that doesn't entitle us to use the clubhouse facilities afterwards....!!!


    On another note
    The most expensive course to play or join in the north east is Close House, where you could wear jeans and trainers, or even shorts and flip flops to eat afterwards.......

    Never played anywhere requiring black tie afterwards, but totally agree with your sentiments.

    Probably because it is a proprietary course and all the owner is interested in is his profit. Anything goes as long as punters are spending money

    Moogie, that was the only club I had in my head for that requirement so I am pleased you confirmed that. I haven't played there either but my BiL has on corporate days. Supposed to be nice. Not exceptional but nice. Hope you enjoy it, I'll ask you about it at the meet in September.

    I was playing at Close House last Sunday, won a 4 ball at a trade show by dropping a business card in a jar . I was having a coffee in the clubhouse beforehand and a big bloke walked in with his wife and kid, they must have been staying in the accommodation. The bloke was wearing a muscleman vest, shorts and flip flops as you suggested. The man behind the bar did not blink and was as courteous as he would have been to anyone, everyone is a sir or madam there. There was another bloke sat there in his golf cap, indoors, in the bar!!!!!!!! I did have a little chuckle to myself. Anyone who has been to Close House will confirm it is anything but low grade, they show how to be relaxed and classy at the same time, although the bacon butties are a rip off .

    Re: Jacket and Tie

    I don't 'want' to wear a jacket and tie but have no issue at all if that is what the club rules dictate. And in most cases it is only to eat in the dining room so members are perfectly OK to have a pint and sandwiches/chips in the bar in golf clothes if they want to.

    As for these types of clubs dying out and being forced to change well that is utter nonsense. I know the manager at St Georges Hill, they have a waiting list as long as your arm. These types of club can still pick and choose who they let in.

    Yup, and they keep coming back for more so he must be doing something right. I think he has the balance right, not that I can afford to play there often.
