The BAD PANTS INVITATIONAL is Sandhurst Club's Charity Day for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

BAD PANTS INVITATIONAL Co-coordinator Shane Bowley 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 Bowley 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.

"At this stage we are putting out a call to all Melbourne Golfers who would like to play a game of golf badly dressed, have a lot of fun for a great cause - the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal to get in contact with the Sandhurst Club Golf Shop on 8787 7022.
