Dress Code

Like most private clubs, Rivermead has a Dress Code. It reflects Club traditions but also considers current trends in golf wear, tasteful and appropriate clothing, and the practices of other private clubs.

For men, golf shirts with sleeves and collar or mockneck are acceptable. They must be tucked in at the waist to pants, appropriate length shorts or plus-fours. Ankle or knee-high socks must be worn.

Long or short sleeve, button down dress shirts with a collar that have a straight, single length, finished hem and are designed to be worn untucked, can be worn untucked in and around the Clubhouse, but not on the golf course or practice area.

In the dining room, shirt with collar, long pants and closed toed shoes are required; jackets are encouraged, but a tie is optional. Proper golf attire may be worn anywhere else on the premises.

Dressy leather sandals that are closed-toed or do not have a strap between the toes are acceptable in and around the Clubhouse, but not on the golf course or practice area. Rubber or plastic footwear including beach, casual and shower flip-flops and Crocs are not acceptable.

For women, sleeveless golf shirts with collar, collarless golf shirts with sleeves or specifically designed as golf wear or mockneck and other similar tops are acceptable. Golf tops designed to be worn over slacks/shorts/skirts are permitted providing they have a finished bottom and fall 2” to 4” below the waist. Bare midriffs, tank tops, short shorts and long shirts that are not tucked in are not permitted. Ankle or knee-high socks must be worn.

Denim clothing is permitted in and around the Clubhouse, but must be in good repair without any rips, tears, frayed ends or holes, not be overly faded, and must fit appropriately. Acceptable denim does not include overalls or painter pants. Denim clothing cannot be worn on the golf course or practice area.

Prohibited attire: T-shirts, cargo shorts and pants with large exterior pockets (side or front) that have not been specifically designed as golf wear, spandex, exercise pants or shorts, cut-offs, rubber or plastic footwear including beach, casual and shower flip-flops and Crocs, clothing that conforms to the Club Dress Code but is dirty, ripped, frayed, tattered, does not fit appropriately, is extremely low or high cut, or is otherwise in poor condition.

Logos must be discreet and related to golf and sports activities only.

Hats: Men may not wear a hat in the Clubhouse, other than in the locker room. Women can wear hats in the Clubhouse, except for the Dining Room. Hats are to be worn with the peak forward at all times.

Cell phones must be off or in “silent” or “vibrate” mode at all times on Club property and used with discretion.

Shoes: Metal spike shoes are not permitted on the premises. Golf sandals are not permitted on the golf course or practice facilities.

Members and guests arriving at the Club in apparel that does not conform to the dress code must proceed immediately to the locker room to change into appropriate attire. Pre-Juniors, Juniors, Intermediates and Guests must abide by the Club’s dress code.
