Course FAQ’s

Coventry Hearsall Golf Club aims to operate a contemporary and forward-thinking dress policy, commensurate with a modern day golf club. It has become apparent though that both members and visitors alike are failing to adhere to the dress code rules both on the course and in the clubhouse.

New disciplinary approach to those continually breaking the dress and etiquette rules.

It is in all our interests to maintain reasonable standards of casual but smart dress in keeping with golfing traditions and as such the board and management committee have agreed that rather than club officials approaching members and their guests as they have done in the past and risking confrontation, the member will be reported to the management committee via email after which they will be contacted and asked to explain why they or their guest(s) were breaking the dress and or etiquette rules of the club.

If they persist in breaking these rules they will be invited to meet with the management committee and could face disciplinary action.

This new approach should limit the number of potentially threatening situations in the clubhouse, on the patio and out on the course

Golfers at Coventry Hearsall Golf Club are therefore made aware that the following are required standards that must be adhered to both on the golf course and in the clubhouse.

Can I wear what I like in the clubhouse?

As before we are fairly relaxed, but we do have a dress policy. In the old days a requirement was to change into a suit and tie to use the clubhouse, but these days it’s usually OK to stay in your golf gear when going into the clubhouse for a drink after the round.

That does not mean to say that you can wear your soft spiked golf shoes into the bar or lounge area, although CLEAN dimpled sole shoes are acceptable in the bar.

Can I get changed in the Car Park?

The clubhouse has every facility required for changing into and from golfing apparel. Changing in the car park is not permitted.
