Has Golf Attire Become Haute Couture, Or Have We Always Been Fashionable?


Recommended Posts

as far as on the course, i’ll always dress for where i’m playing. i’ve played my local muni in sweatpants, but at a nicer track or especially a club as someone’s guest i’ve got no problem putting on nice shorts or pants (weather dependent) and a collared polo. i can appreciate looking and feeling good at a really nice venue, and i actually think it adds to the experience  

the part of the country club uniform that really irks me though is in the dining room. my grandparents have belonged to an upscale club on Long Island for over 40 years (house members only as my grandfather hated golf).

a few years back i was actually denied entry to the dining room for a family dinner because of what i was wearing: tailored jeans, fitted white t shirt, blazer, and chelsea boots. the exact same type of outfit i wouldn’t think twice about wearing to a business meeting or a dinner at a nice restaurant. 

as clean and put together as i looked, i didn’t pass muster because i was wearing denim and didn’t have a collar. but the guy at the bar in the polo shirt two sizes too big and the wrinkled $12 old navy khakis was good to go. 

dress codes are great and they’ve got their place, but a slob is always gonna look like a slob, no matter what rules he’s following.

Look good, feel good, play good. I think it's that simple. Be comfortable and confident on the course. My home course doesn't have a dress code, heck I've seen guys out there in hunting boots, jeans, and flannel. It's odd but it doesn't bother me any. I'm not worried that they're ruining the game. They're not in my group so as long as they're respectful of the course it's fine.

I like to dress like a pro. Polo tucked in and pants, until it's too hot then shorts. Maybe I'm not one yet, but at least I can look the part. Once we get into the season I don't mind posting pictures in my flashy-ier outfits.

I'm somewhat fussy about what I wear - clean and proper fitting clothes and shorts. However, I could care less what others wear as long as they abide by course rules, i.e. collared shirts, etc. Each to their own taste just don't play slow [emoji16].
FYI I love the recent innovation of waistbands that keep shirts tucked in  - don't love the flat brimmed hats even though I'm a Fowler fan. 


Tony, I am the same way. Been playing for 62 years and have always been a bit fussy. Everything must coordinate. Shirts shorts belt shoes socks and cap......everything....and color is cool.

I’ve always matched my clothes, for work, school, dates, golf, it doesn’t matter. I love all of the new patterns on Peter Millar and FJ shirts, I just hate the prices. Ugh. It gets SO hot here in the summer so I don’t usually wear my “good” shirts, I just wear them for work, so I usually buy some plain, deeply discounted shirts and shorts since they get destroyed with sweat. But, I will still match! One thing is guaranteed: NO. WHITE. BELT. I buy the cloth belts and match them to my shorts, and if I’m wearing white shorts, I match the belt to the shirt! White belts... Yuck.

I'm like a few others in the thread, I buy my golf clothes based on whether or not I could wear them to work. I have a few pairs of golf pants that pass muster at the office (well, when we're actually there and not remote, anyways) and all of my shorts are basic solid colors that I can pair with anything. 

Shirts tend to be pretty neutral as well, I've said before I'm cheap so I just stock up at the Ahead factory clearance every December when overruns are marked down to $5 each. 

I really hesitate to put the words "golf" and "fashionable" together based on a lot of outfits I've seen in the past. But as long as I'm comfortable, and whoever I'm playing with is comfortable, that's all that matters in the end to me.

Personally, I'm pretty uptight about my own golf clothes...I have a closet of UA and Nike, nothing else, and you better believe I don't mix them, always head-to-toe one brand or the other.  The only area where that falls apart is shoes...I have a pair of FootJoys that go with the Nike clothes.  Nike hasn't made a shoe that felt right for me in years.  I pride myself on being a parking lot pro, even if it only takes a hole for my playing partners to figure out the "pro" stops at the parking lot.

As for everyone else, I don't care what they wear I care how they conduct themselves on the course.  Enjoy yourself, but not at the expense of anyone else, and I'll have no problem with you, and overall I'm pleased to see a slow creep to a more relaxed atmosphere in our game overall. 

Lord knows we need it.  Last year at a nice PUBLIC course I had a teenager behind the pro shop desk tell me he couldn't let me out for a twilight 9 because I wasn't wearing a collared shirt.  I was wearing a Nike TW blade collar polo.  I kid you not, I was only able to convince him I was wearing appropriate attire by removing the shirt and showing him "Nike Golf" on the label...the little TW logo on the sleeve wasn't enough for him.

If a course tried to ban jeans around here in the spring and fall they would have a empty course.

Our club requires proper golf attire during the season. But off season no one bothers you about what you wear - kinda tough to tell if you have jeans under the rain suit.
