Sandhurst Club Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal Charity Golf Day - Golfers Fined $20 if they are not BADLY DRESSED


Sandhurst Club

Golfers at one of Melbourne's prestige golf courses, Sandhurst Club, will be fined $20 if they turn up well dressed to play in the BAD PANTS INVITATIONAL. 


The BAD PANTS INVITATIONAL is Sandhurst Club's Charity Day for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal, sponsored by Sandhurst Club who are donating the course for the day.

BAD PANTS INVITATIONAL Co-coordinator Peter Maher said the bad pants dress code will be strictly enforced to ensure the high quality of the event that had been undermined a couple of years ago when a few golfers turned up well dressed.

"We are impressing on all players in the BAD PANTS INVITATIONAL that subdued colors such as beige shirts and tee shirts are just not on and course stewards will be wanting to see bright garish colours such as combinations of yellow, red, fluro pink, and bright purple to uphold the quality of the presentation of the event.

"Prizes will be awarded to the Best Dressed Team and the Best Dressed Individual who is Badly Dressed.

"Unusual outfits are encouraged. One year we had a women's team dressed as Easter bunnies with fluffy pink tails that confused local wildlife as well as other golfers."

Mr Maher said that the BAD PANTS INVITATIONAL also had a strong environmental theme with many of the players of past events recycling their old shirts, blouses and pants which had gone out of fashion to comply with the dress standards of bad taste.
