Dress Code - Golf Course

The member-owners of Carleton would like to promote a neat appearance of golfers and caddies on the golf course and practice area, and have therefore requested golfers and caddies to wear proper golf attire at all times. In order to achieve this, the following rules must be followed:


Permitted Attire:

Men are required to wear golf shirts with collars (mock necks and turtle necks are permitted). Shirts must be worn tucked in at all times. Shorts may be worn, but they cannot be rugger shorts; cargo pants are permitted with a neat and clean appearance.


Women are permitted to wear pants, slacks, shorts, skorts, capris and dresses. Mock style, V-neck and sleeveless shirts are permitted. Tops may be worn un-tucked. Bare midriff or cleavage is not acceptable.

Hats or visors must be worn in a forward position. Carleton Golf & Yacht Club is a soft spike only golf course. Socks when worn with shorts must be either knee or ankle socks or sockets (no banded sports or dress socks).


Attire Not Permitted:

Denim or jeans of any kind or color, cut-offs, short shorts, tennis shorts, rugger pants or shorts, tank tops, halter tops, mesh shirts, workout attire, spandex or fleece fabrics or graphic t-shirts.


Any other inappropriate attire determined by the Club.


Caddies may not wear traditionally-designed spikes or shoes with conventional spikes (regardless of composition). Spike-less golf shoes are prohibited.
