Coombe Hill Golf Club aims to operate a contemporary and forward-thinking dress policy, commensurate with a modern day life.
It is in all our interests to maintain reasonable standards of casual but smart dress in keeping with golfing traditions. Members and guests of Coombe Hill are therefore made aware that the following are required minimum standards that must be adhered to both on the golf course and in the clubhouse.
We would ask all members to err on the side of conservatism if they are in doubt on whether or not a particular mode of dress is acceptable. We would also ask that all guests are made aware of the code before they arrive.
Should your dress, or that of your guest(s), be considered inappropriate our staff have been instructed to discreetly bring it to your attention.

No Member or guest shall bring a dog into the Clubhouse. However, dogs may be left in the Gentlemen's Locker Room providing they are not a nuisance to other members and guests. A Member shall not allow his or her dog on the Course unless it is under control at all times and is not a nuisance to any other Member or guest either by causing undue noise or other distraction.

Members are encouraged not to bring their dogs onto the terrace area but if they do so, the dog MUST be on a leash. The Club management will ask the owner to remove a dog if, at the sole discretion of the management, it is causing a disturbance to other members and guests.
