All attire must be neat and clean. It may not be frayed, or contain any holes, tears, rips or be faded to the point of being tattered and must fit appropriately.

Guests: It is the responsibility of a member introducing a guest to ensure they wear appropriate attire.

Children: Juniors and Pre-Juniors are expected to follow the dress standards of the Club for men and women. St. George’s recognizes that clothing for children under Pre-Junior ages, can vary and some tolerance will be permitted, provided their dress is in good taste and in keeping with general dress guidelines, including no denim apparel in the St. George’s Room, Stanley Thompson Room and Founders’ Room.

Fitness: As the fitness equipment is located in the curling area and Indoor Learning Centre of the clubhouse, members may walk directly to and from the golf locker rooms to these areas in their fitness attire.

Pants: In addition to denim pants: rugby pants, sweat pants, jogging pants, pants with draw strings and pants with external pockets (cargo pants) are not acceptable attire. Pants must be worn at waist height and must be cut to rest on the shoe or slightly above.

With the exception of rooms that have been booked through the club’s Catering Office for a private meeting cell phone use for conversation is prohibited in the clubhouse. Cell phone use for conversation is also prohibited on the golf course. While email and text messaging functions (including the use of a cell phone for text messaging) may be used anywhere in the clubhouse or on the golf course, members and guests should be considerate of others and use their WCD with discretion.
