I'll just say maybe 2 or 3 comments so far are the reason people think golfers are uppity A-holes. were not pro's, its a freaking game. U want the sport to grow and stay alive. Just let them come as they are. Or just take ur A$$ to a country club. My Oldman would meet me at the course after I got out of school and he would still be in his painters whites and golf shoes, or playing in his blue jeans at the club championship. And me I'm a T-shirt or polo with cargo shorts. Or after a training session ill go out in my gym clothes. Someone said they're a purist, well I bet u ain't playing in golf nickers and swinging hickory sticks. Sorry for the rant...

Yes but people also need to understand that Golf is an old sport and that certain courses the expectation is as such. There are courses that are more lenient and laid back....play those courses. 

Examples in my area are like Granite Links...this course the expectation is a professional golf atmosphere. Compared to another course like Blissful Meadows where it is a little more laid back. It all depends on the course really....either way for me I dont care what you wear while playing but for myself I prefer to be in comfortable golf attire.

Agreed, the normal blue denim is too stiff, heavy, hot, etc.

In summer if it is hot, when I go to the local track in the late afternoon for a quick nine, I'll wear an thin, collar-less athletic shirt,  golf shorts, never with black socks.   Otherwise, it will be a golf shirt, tucked in with belt.   Simple and boring.   

The black socks thing, not for me.  Loved to watch the Fab Five, but their fashion statements still linger after all of these years.

You know the uptight dress code doesn't happen on golf courses exclusively. I was denied entry to a gym cause I was wearing my school uniform (khaki pants with polo shirt) and had forgotten my change of clothes. It's not comfortable, but so what? It's my choice.

I was also denied play on a tennis court for wearing jeans (that was in high school)

Comfort is a very personal choice, as long as you are not wearing something so short that your balls are hanging out, wear whatever feels good. Just be kind to other people's eyes.

Oh I totally agree, some places its required. But at a muni, who cares. Ill Show up in gym clothes at my muni some days, but if I go play the country club or a big name course I'm dressed to kill...

I think there are enough variations in dress codes at golf courses, from extremely strict to extremely relaxed, to suit all preferences.  I honestly don't see any reason to label anyone who loves golf as an "uppity A-hole" or as a "lazy slob".  And dress codes aren't encountered only at golf clubs, we see expectations of specific attire at offices, at restaurants, in places of worship.

The issue with not drawing a line it leaves things open for interpretation. Maybe some people want some AC in the crotch area, best way is to let em hang!...There needs to be rules and its up to the course to create and enforce....To each their own but as I have said in this thread (feel like I am zoned in on this one lol) wear what the course requires if you dont like it go play your muni's and downscale courses.

I belong to a club that has a dress code. Golf pants or golf shorts. Collared shirt and must be tucked in and you cant wear a hat backwards. I'm fine with everything since it is a gentlemens sport. But every once in a while I play a muni and see people in blue jeans and a tee shirt.  With all the moisture wicking materials out there why would anyone play in jeans and a tee shirt. 

What are you wearing.

I play in league like that fairly often. I work in a shop, so that is standard clothing for me.. I am often pressed for time to get to the course from work. The times when I know I will have time, I bring a change of clothes with me and change before I leave for the course.

Golf courses with strict dress codes are going to need to lighten up a bit.... unless they are private and that's just the way it is. Public and muni courses need the traffic/revenue to stay open. Enforcing strict dress codes will do nothing but keep a lot of potential revenue away form their course... IMO.

As long as the clothes are clean, it shouldn't matter.

I typically wear a polo shirt and shorts when I play golf. I find it comfortable and fits my needs.

I have worn jeans when the temperatures have been low. 

How other players dress does not impact my joy on the course. As long as they are respectful of others.

Ditto. Polo and shorts for me... at least in the warmer months. Jeans and a sweat shirt in the cooler months. Clean, of course. 😉

LOL... I'm almost always in black ankle socks. I also will not wear any color of golf shoes other than black.

Black ankle socks were pretty much all that was seen in courses in the early to mid 2000s. For me I have a various amount colors thanks to stance and kentwool

I will just say one more thing.... maybe a few...lol

I think a lot of it is how you were raised. My father was a business man. I was raised to be a man... in all ways, not just the macho s***. I was taught how to dress for whatever the occasion might be. I was taught manners and to be courteous. I was taught not to look down on other people because you don't know what their situation might be. (My own situation has changed drastically in the last 6.5 years). I was taught to treat people with respect ... appearance has nothing to do with character. I had a mother and father that did their job in raising their two boys to be respectful, productive citizens,,, an treat people how they would like to be treated. One of us is a tradesman/Cabinetmaker (me). The other is a business man that travels the world. When we are together, you'd never know the difference.

I like to be presentable when I play golf. It can be done cheaply enough. There are nice looking pants/shorts and shirts for $20 and less. That's the route I go. I don't have the income to spend $70 on a polo shirt. I try to dress appropriate for golf. That is because of the way I was raised. 

This is a different time than 30 years ago. The younger generation doesn't have the same values we older people do. This a good thing and a bad thing...lol. Golf/courses will need to keep up with times if they want to viable in the future, IMO. Now ...where did I leave that damned, new fangled cell phone!?

I wear cargo shorts with the strings hanging down, white belt, athletic moisture wicking shirt, flat billed hat, and ankle socks! If you don't like it guess what, IDGAF!
I wear what I want when the course doesn't have a dress code. If it does and I want to play it, I follow their rules. It isn't rocket science if I don't want to follow their code then I shouldn't expect to play there.

If you arent willing to follow the courses rules and codes then don't expect them to bow down to you just don't play there. That goes for all their rules and codes not just dress codes.

...white belt...

Naturally.  The white belt takes down the handicap a few points. 

I read somewhere the one should not wear a white belt if their waist size exceeds their age, or their age exceeds 35.  It's funny the "rules" people apply to fashion.

Proper shirts/tops are required at our Club. It use to be collared shirts - but now with the new nike shirts those are ok.  No jeans during the season, However off season a number of guys will wear jeans since they're warmer than golf pants. Dress the part and you feel the part.
