Good article on golf  wear.  I am pretty old school, when it comes to dressing up for the course. My colors vary, mostly blues,grays, but will venture into red and green, and others.. Pants are usually black, gray, navy blue or tan. No white or red pants for me. They look fine on other guys, just not me. The old school part really comes into play on this aspect of dress. 50 or so years ago, when my late Father started me into golf, his words still ring in my ears..."Dungarees are for the farm, and shorts are for the beach." So from then until now, I have never worn either on the course. Having legs like a chicken, swayed  me away from shorts , also. I was surprised to hear after Justin Thomas's great year, he did not wear shorts on the course, either. To all those, that wear shorts, I have not one problem with it. You look fine, and your legs look better than mine. Jeans on the other hand, are still absolutely,unequivocally taboo, to me, still.

I found that most people (men and women) dress appropriately on the courses I've played. We never wear jeans except in the off season - 45* temps are a little tough on shorts or long golf pants.

Jeans are acceptable attire here and there is a relatively strict code, why? Rumor is The founder of the Villages ALWAYS wore jeans and years ago when they started the courses he allowed jeans. His dollars his rules.[emoji106]

I'm still old school also. Blue seems predominant color. I don't ever want to look like an old Rodney Dangerfield.[emoji33]

I'm old, I wear what I want, lol. I have a lot of polos, all different designs and colours. My wife travels for work fairly frequently and usually gets me a golf shirt or two. I do tend to wear a lot of black, jackets and pants that is. Most of the shorts I wear are plaid. No white belts though.

When I got to FL 6 years ago I went to one of the practice greens to do a little chipping & putting. I had decent shorts and an up scale T shirt, no printing of stupid saying just a clean T. Up comes a Ranger a Fred a while and started a conversation and realized I had just moved in that week and had not even played a round as yet. Well it seems someone ratted me out to the Ranger as a rule breaker for not having a collared shirt. He told to finish practicing no rush but gotta have a collar. He was apologetic and seemed embarrassed.

My one local course I like to practice at didn't even let me buy coins for the ball dispenser because I was wearing a t-shirt. They made me go find a polo in my truck before they would give me the coins.

same thing here on the ranges which I understand, kinda. But the putting green I was on is an obscure neighborhood green. Rules are rules.

I wonder why golf has such an elitist stigma attached to it? :rolleyes:

Seriously? A collared shirt at a driving range?? Wow...

 

Wonder what they would have said if you were wearing one of those new Nike shirts without a collar.

I'm not a fan of jeans on the course. Also, if I go to the golf course driving range, I'll wear the collared shirt. If I'm at the range just down the street is casual

I'm pretty sure I posted this before, but I remember playing a new course here in the Bay Area in wintertime back in the early 2000's, when David Duval was at the top of his game. It was an expensive round of golf, around $100 but my buddy heard it was a great new course and we should play it.

 

So I go to check in wearing nice slacks, a Nike David Duval mock turtleneck and a Ping golf jacket. The guy working tells me I need a collared shirt. I'm wearing a shirt from the Nike Golf Collection and it's under a jacket so no one is even going to see it but the jack**s is hassling me about a collared shirt, in February!

 

Never went back and now I get a laugh whenever I get an email from them with all their discounted greens fees. Guess business isn't so good.

 

 

 

Now, it's my tan or grey flat front dad pants from Old Navy or cargo shorts and whatever collared golf shirts I find on sale.

 

I wear flannel shirts almost everyday in the winter, I think those need to make it into my golf wardrobe soon. [emoji16]

Do you play baseball without a baseball hat? Football without pads? Soccer without “soccer shorts”? Fence without that cool mask? Drive nascar without that fire proof suit? Sky dive without a parachute? Dive without oxygen?

 

I wouldn't.

I see where you coming from and most times I hit the range I will wear what I play in. My post was I just wanted to buy the coins for the dispenser and couldn't.
