Dress Code: Hip!

At Curlewis, we are all about awesome golf and hip, green, fun! We aren’t stuffy, old-fashioned, nor elitist. We see golf as something you enjoy in your leisure time and you should be allowed to be yourself.

We recognise that golf is stooped in tradition and some golf clubs chose to uphold those traditions from a bygone era.

But, not at Curlewis. We are progressive, contemporary and fun. With that in mind, we have proudly developed what we feel is the most common-sense golf course dress code for the modern golfer.

Shirts

Don’t stress over wearing a collared shirt or T-shirt, sleeveless, long or short sleeve. Provided we can’t see your bare torso (front or back), both are fine. The same applies to tucking it in or not – your choice, conditional only on the bare flesh factor already mentioned.

Shorts

The style, length and the fabric of shorts is also something many clubs whip themselves in to a frenzy over. As long as we can’t see anything that should remain private, all other shorts are fine – color/fabric/style/cut etc

Bathers, bikinis and beach wear

People who wear beachwear to our club are always welcome, provided you are happy to spend the day duck-diving for lost golf balls in our six dams – all while your friend’s play golf. Wear bathers at your own peril although we do provide free mask and flippers.

Shoes

A typical game of golf takes around four hours and fifteen minutes. Runners and closed-toe leisure type shoes are required. Thongs and sandals are a no-go. Anyway, no one wants to experience your smelly bare feet after you trudge six kilometres around our 59-hectare course.

Spikes

Soft spiked golf shoes are very hip and welcome every inch of our property. Metal spikes are not welcome, too old school and far too traditional. Keep them for playing on those “other” courses.

Leisure wear

Curlewis welcomes considered leisure wear. If you feel comfortable wearing sport-type skins, training wear and activity-type clothing, who are we to argue? In fact, we reckon it makes sense provided you abide by the no bare torso rule. But, we do draw the line at sloppy old tracksuit pants. We all have them, but for home use only!

Singlets

We view singlets as beach wear (refer section covering bathers, bikinis and beach wear). But, some golf fashionista created snappy-looking women’s singlets with a collar. Wearing those is a-okay!

Head wear

All head wear is permitted. This also includes the hipsters who like to wear they’re cap backwards; be yourself, you are welcome in all areas of the clubhouse. We recognise that bad “hat hair” is just plain embarrassing.

Socks

Goes without saying. We love, normal, short, semi-short and really short, white, black, coloured, patterned, stripped, polka dotted socks. We view long socks as a bit daggy, but wear them if you must… you dag!

Footy gear

Unless you are an AFL listed player, you aren’t allowed to wear your footy gear on the course. AFL listed players wearing footy gear must gesture a goal when sinking a putt.

Tradie wear

We understand that sometimes a job finishes early and you’ve got your clubs in your van. Provided your name is Davo, Johno, Robbo or Stevo (and you’ve packed your runners), we’ll try our best to get you on at the right time.

Clothing with excessive logos or rude words

This isn’t Wimbledon. Logo up as much as you’d like. If you’ve spent a small fortune on expensive brand clothing, why not tell the world about it? Rude words or phrases on your clothing is just plain wrong. Anyone turning up wearing clothing like that will be immediately sent home with a note for their Mum.

An important tip

Now that you have read all the way to this point, here is the most important tip: All jokes aside and without fail, the more you look like a gun golfer, the more your friends will really think you can play. Even if you can’t play a stroke, dress like Pro and then write your round off as “Having a bad day” – as golfers, we all have them (and more frequently than we’d like to admit).
