Dress Code

Update to Dress Code January 2018:

Smart jeans are acceptable wear around the clubhouse. "Smart" being the intention, so it's a "NO" to ripped, distressed jeans, and a "YES" to smart casual wear.

Certain functions may still stipulate a certain dress code, and this will be advised accordingly

Our rules on the course do not change, and whilst playing the game, or practicing, acceptable and recognised golf clothing is the order of the day.

All clothing and shoes designed for golf and sold through recognised golf and sports retailers are acceptable on the course.

For guidance this definition excludes items of clothing such as football and rugby shirts, denim clothing, beachwear, round neck tee shirts, athletic vests and track suits.

Shirts should be tucked into trousers, shorts or skirts unless specifically designed to be worn otherwise.

Gents tailored and ladies golf shorts may be worn on the course and in the club house with colour co-ordinated golf socks of either knee or ankle length.

Smart casual wear must be worn in the clubhouse.

Appropriate footwear must be worn when in the clubhouse. This includes smart trainers.


Pace of Play

Please Keep Up - it’s for the benefit of everyone!

Slow play is a challenge faced by many golf clubs, and Howley Hall is no different.

Golf should be enjoyable and whilst we do not expect members, guests and visitors to rush around the course, your pace of play can affect others and we believe that if all golfers follow these basic principles, golf at Howley Hall will be more enjoyable for all:

* Arrive in good time and play promptly.

* Avoid 1st tee delays by arriving in advance of your tee time.

* Prepare in advance for each stroke and move promptly between strokes.

* Take no more than 40 secs. (Normally less) to play each stroke.

* Take no more than 3 mins to search for a lost ball

* Play a provisional when there is a possibility a ball may be lost.

* Invite the group behind to play through if you need to ‘go back’ to play a stroke.

* Pick up if you cannot score (when playing stableford format).
