Pants/Slacks or Shorts?? - Page 7

Why do you not believe that courses in different parts of the country have different dress codes?

 

Take a restaurant in Paris that requires a suit and tie and put it in Honolulu (same food, same price) and you can bet that the patrons will mostly be wearing short sleeve button ups, linen pants, and sandals?  Why should golf be any different?

Golf has always meant respect for the game. Although no one wears a tie anymore, I believe rules at clubs outlining collared shirts, slacks and shorts, no denim, no flipflops, reflects that respect.

I'm not a snob, as I will wear denim around the house, or when shopping etc., but if a course allows any type of dress with no bounds, it's a course that is most likely a barn yard and begging to stay afloat. I won't play it.

 

Just my opinion.

My home course was once a private course. Not just the course but the entire community, it's a gated community. I've seen everything from jeans to t-shirts on the course. It still looks and feels like a country club.

What is that kid doing anyway? If the date stamp wasn't so old I'd swear he is bustin' on Miley Vyrus with the pose and tongue out thing.

My club just started to allow Jeans to be worn in the bar area, no t-shirts yet and Jeans cannot be worn on the course, but during the cold season when I'm not playing I wear Jeans to work at times and it was always a pain to have to bring another set of pants to go watch the game and grab some food and a beer at the club.  Even some of the older private country clubs I've played recently, I noticed Members wearing Jeans in the bar area.

 

I like to wear Jeans, to me they just aren't as comfortable on the course as slacks or shorts, so I wouldn't wear them to play, but it certainly wouldn't bother me if others did.

i just keep a pair of pants and/or shorts in my office in case I play after work. I think at alot of clubs the jean ban is to draw the line so to speak. I have seen people show up in jeans covered with oil. also seen dickie work pants too. I guess you just have to know the dress code .

That course is a municipal course in the southwest Denver metro area, in the Foothills Recreation District.  It is a cash cow for the District, and the busiest facility in the Denver area.   There are 3 courses, one 18 hole course and two 9 hole courses, a grass range with 50 hitting stations, a short game practice area, and a separate lesson tee and green.  I see t-shirts there a lot in the summer with shorts in 100 degree heat, but rarely paired with jeans, as jeans are more late fall and winter apparel, when sweaters and jackets are more often worn.

 

And by the way, I don't like your insinuation that I'm a liar.  You can take that crap and stuff it.

You're definitely not lying. However Foothills isn't what I would consider posh, regardless of how the dress code policy enforced. The older metro muni's in Denver are anything goes. Especially the recreation district courses. Foothills is a lot like Hyland Hills. The people that manage it answer to the same people that run water parks and ice rinks. I don't think the intent is to be exclusive. Not a bad thing IMO.

Follow the dress codes of the course you're playing at, it's that simple.  If you like to wear jeans, find a course that permits it.  I really am not going to lose sleep if someone wears jeans, though it's not considered appropriate attire at any clubs I've been to.

 

I'm sure some nice public / muni courses in the country permit jeans just as some people have informal weddings that don't discourage wearing jeans but that doesn't make it the norm so I don't see a problem with jimmyc pointing that out nor consider him a snob for doing so.

I couldn't have stated it better. I'm far from a snob, I just feel better playing the game at places with a dress code and folks who respect it.

It's like going to a nice restaurant. No shoes, no shorts, no service. You don't have to go there, it's your choice. I don't go where anything go's. Thats my choice.

One clarification - I never said that I don't respect a course's dress code.  I think that some courses take such codes to the point of being ridiculous (such as requiring slacks even in 95° summer heat), and I think that some players take it to the point of being snooty even when the course doesn't.  I guess it comes from being a blue collar machinist for my working life, and living in Colorado where it seems that the phrase "casual living" was coined.  Dressing casually there says nothing whatsoever about the person.  Respect or lack thereof for anything has nothing to do with it.  It simply isn't a factor as long as the venue doesn't make a point of it.

I disagree with a dress code if you are only using their driving range or practice area. That is a little overkill

I agree. My clubs are always in my trunk during the season and sometimes I can stop and hit balls for a half hour on my way to or from somewhere. Sucks if the only thing holding me back is the shirt I'm wearing.

Last week I finished a meeting earlier than expected and was on my way home, golf course is on the way so I stopped in and asked the pro if I could play a quick 9 with a t-shirt on. He let me.
