Please become familiar with the following Dress Code & Etiquette at all QHotels Golf Resorts prior to your visit for your own enjoyment.

Dress Code

  • Jeans or denim trousers are not permitted at any QHotel Golf Resort. Please note that leggings and tracksuit bottoms are also not permitted.
  • Collarless T-shirts are not permitted on the course- however collarless T-shirts designed specifically for golf may be worn.
  • Please make sure that your shirt is tucked in at all times.
  • Ladies may wear sleeveless tailored shirts.
  • Golf shoes must be worn at all times - (Please be aware that at Forest Pines Hotel & Golf Resort a 'Soft Spikes only' policy is in place).
  • Trainers are only permitted on the driving range.
  • Knee length tailored shorts may be worn with knee length or short socks. Please not that socks can be coloured.
  • Ladies may wear ankle length socks.
  • No football shorts, shirts or combat style shorts or tops are permitted.
  • Changing facilities are provided at all QHotels Golf Resorts and we therefore ask that you do not use the car park to get changed. You may change footwear only in the car park.
  • Mobile phones may be used on the course and clubhouse but we request that these are switched to silent mode while on the golf course and in the clubhouse.


  • Please repair pitch marks on the green, replace divots and smooth foot prints in bunkers.
  • Please keep trolleys off green surrounds, tees, bunkers and outside white lines when they are in existence.
  • Each player must have their own set of golf clubs for play.
  • Pace of play - please play within guidelines set by the golf course - if you can't score please pick up. If you are searching for a lost ball or fall behind the game in front, please call the game behind through.


  • White Tees - members & their guests only - Use may be granted at the discretion of Management prior to arrival (Please note at Hellidon Lakes Golf and Spa Hotel white tees are not available to visitors)
