Allow us to address Cargo shorts or pants for men or women.  The shorts or pants illustrated do not meet our guidelines for acceptable attire. Cargo shorts consist of a garment with more than four pockets; and or pockets that are stitched to the outside of the fabric. The placement of pockets can vary but are most often seen on the lower part or side part of the short. Cargo shorts are distinctive because the pockets are accompanied by an overlying flap.

Every golfer is expected to follow the guidelines noted above. Please make sure if you have a Guest coming to Barrington that you inform them of the dress code prior to their arrival and that you review the golf cart guidelines before beginning play.

If you do not comply with the dress code policy then you will be asked to meet the dress code requirement before you begin your round of golf.

Golf Carts:

The Superintendent and the Golf Staff will determine the use of the carts on the golf course. When the carts are permitted in the fairway, please keep them in the fairway and do not drive them in the rough to look for your ball.  You should exit the fairway at the blue cart sign and go directly to the cart path.  The carts must remain on the paths on all par 3s.  The use of a golf cart or caddie is mandatory.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
