Regulations/Dress Rules

Dress Regulations 

At all SVGA events members must comply with the dress rules of the club that we are playing at.  In most cases the dress code can be found on the club?s website.  A link to each upcoming club?s website can be found on the SVGA 1golf website.

 Notwithstanding this, the minimum standard of dress at SVGA events is:  

 Shirts: Collared shirts with sleeves. High crew neck collar shirts (with golf brand logo) are acceptable. Shirts of acceptable style must be tucked in at all times. 

 Shorts/Trousers: Shorts & trousers must be tailored. Shorts should be knee length. 

The following are not permitted: Elastic waist or draw string, jeans or cargo pants (unless bearing a golf brand logo). 

 Socks: Short socks must be white and ankle length. Golf club or golf brand logos are acceptable. 

 Shoes: Golf shoes with soft spikes are essential for play. In the clubhouse, boat shoes (with no socks) or walking shoes with socks are acceptable. Thongs, Crocs & sandals are not permitted.  

If a member would like a variation to these rules for medical reasons, the committee will consider a request accompanied by a doctor?s certificate.

Mobile Telephones

The use of mobile phones on the golf course is not permitted other than as a device for distance measurement or in the case of an emergency.

Members are required to verify particular club policies before using mobile phones in the vicinity of the clubhouse.
