Dress Standard

The Committee requires that a suitable standard of dress be observed at all times. Fashion evolution makes absolute guidelines impossible, but the unchanging consideration is that the standard of dress on the course or in the clubhouse should reflect the status and dignity of Lake Karrinyup Country Club.
