***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Why does golf continue to have a dress code?

    I was playing a public town course the other day, a more upscale town course. The scorecard states "Proper golf attire required". However, when on the course, I was shocked how many people were playing golf with gym shorts and shirts on. This was on Sunday of Labor Day weekend.

    At the end of they day the course seem to no longer enforce these rules, but me personally, I still feel uncomfortable if I am pulling up to a course with out a collard shirt on and proper golf shorts or pants....

    Like said above, times have changed.

    Sure, private courses can/will do what they want and thats fine. I'm not a member. Public courses are just that, a course that anyone can go play.

    I can agree that cut off jeans, shirts or whatever has a different place other than on a golf course, but
    reality is, if your paying, your playing. I personally dress comfortably nice, but won't look down on a person that might not be dressed "appropriate" to play a game.

    Courses are all over the place on dress codes.

    I've seen signs that read, "Proper golf attire preferred".
    I've seen courses that required collared shirt under your jacket when it's 35°F out in the winter.

    When I played in blue denim last year, it felt very weird.

    this has to do with playing conditions. High temps and humidity can be murderous when playing outdoor sports. Choices would be early morning or after sunset. Can you wear band collar moisture wicking shirts at your club, no tee shirt and one size larger then needed.

    because private clubs want to weed out those that won't do at least a minimum ... go to the muni in your track shorts if you want ... cubavera shirts are $25 and you can find any number of decent short for a similar amount ...

    Just about any place that's meant something to people will have either a posted or unspoken dress code.
    Golf is no exception.
    It'll never be like going to a swimming pool or backyard BBQ party. It's not quite like going to the house of God but, you get the drift.

    Do you stick your nose in the air if random people say hi to you also? Golf isn't a secret fraternity.

    I guarantee that if a tour pro or any well known person for that matter walked up to ANY club house wanting to stroke some clubs he/she wouldn't be turned away if they were wearing pajamas even. Dress codes.... Not sayin, just sayin.

    First and foremost I think golf attire is every bit as comfortable as Athleisure clothing. As for the initial question I believe that a CLUB should require “golf attire”, a muni not as much.
    There are members conducting business, weddings, etc. A club that removes the dress code will see a decrease in revenues as members perceive a decrease in membership quality.

    Not true. Certainly not at the private club I work at and many others. Upscale country clubs aren't impressed by celebrity and money. Many of the members fit that description. NHL player, Kid Rock, whoever, you must wear a colored shirt, we have a nice selection to choose from.

    LPGA ladies get to wear skirts and shorts, and tops that are almost tank tops, but PGA guys have to wear pants when it’s hot! Ridiculous. Let them wear shorts, good gracious !

    We should all be good to go at your up scale country club then, I for one do have a colored shirt and I'm sure most people do. Everyone's money spends the same doesn't it?

    I also think that your private club would give said higher profile people a colored shirts to wear so they didn't leave. Again not sayin, just sayin.

    Since when is putting on non-denim and a shirt with a collar getting "dressed up"??

    Why do courses insist on this? Because it shows a sense of class, rather than having your clientele look like a bunch of drunken slobs, even if they are.

    When jeans and a tshirt are normal everyday attire, non denim and collars are like dressing up. For those who wear slacks and collared shirts everyday at the office, it wouldn't feel like dressing up.

    It's really not that hard to dress appropriately. Beyond that, modern golf apparel is extraordinarily comfortable. What's the big deal?

    You can always wear what ya want when ya go to Walmart

    And why do we think that is? Certainly not traditional from a golf perspective but yet that's the norm out there. Funny how the traditionalists (aka old white men) have no problem with that but if a pga tour player wears shorts during a tourney round OMG the world will crumble and golf is dead. At some point common sense has to prevail.

    Are there any private clubs which do not have a dress code? If so, I imagine it is strictly a golf club and possibly male only. I think Black Sheep, outside of Chicago, has a lax code, or perhaps none at all. I think it would be pretty cool to have a club confident enough in it's membership and exclusivity that they could eschew the formalities and be all about the golf.

    Adios Club in Coconut Creek, FL, Gator Creek Club in Sarasota, FL, and Squires Club in Philadelphia. All are men's clubs with no dress codes. Interestingly, in my experience most who play there wear traditional golf attire anyway, with the exception of some pro athlete types who seem to have an affinity for cargo shorts. 🤔

    I get 'dressing up' to play a round at any course muni or private. It was the couple comments about having to be dressed up on the range that seemed ridiculous. If I'm just on the range whats wrong with gym clothes? I don't see how that's a bad look since you're on the practice facility.

    A nice appearance has nothing to do with spending a lot of money. That said, public practice ranges don't have dress codes, least that I am aware of, and I play in four states. Ranges at green grass locations, on the other hand, are influenced by the green grass course dress code. Muni course practice ranges are fairly flexible. Practice ranges at upscale courses, not so much. I encourage a dress code on nice golf courses and prefer being a member at a private club because I don't like looking at slobs as they don't fit into the surrounding beauty.

    I have played a lot of golf at all kinds of courses, from snooty private old money courses to small town country courses with no clubhouse where you drop $8 in a bucket on the first tee. ( I enjoy them all for what they are) I am a member of a membership package that runs multiple private or semi private clubs and I always dress "appropriately" when at one of those. I also live down the street from 2 municipal courses and I will often drive over to hit a quick bucket on weekends wearing athletic wear or a T-shirt after mowing the lawn. It's all about fitting it to your environment.

    More of a in general statement for public/ semi private (private obviously have their own rules you pay for). My thoughts on this is more on growing the game. Say a friend or kids if you have them want to learn the game. The first place you take them is the range. Why not let them wear athletic clothing and then if they want to play the course get the polo and shorts.

    Golfers as a whole are probably a bit classier in terms of dress than the average funeral attender. I get the world is more casual than the 1950's when people wore a suit and tie to a ball game or golf tournament, but what I see some people were to a church or wedding is somewhat perplexing. I am the guy who hates wearing a tie, but I do when appropriate. I guess people these days are more concerned about showing off their tats than dressing appropriately.

    ** I guarantee that if a tour pro or any well known person for that matter walked up to ANY club house wanting to stroke some clubs he/she wouldn't be turned away if they were wearing pajamas even.** Dress codes.... Not sayin, just sayin.

    Not true. Certainly not at the private club I work at and many others. Upscale country clubs aren't impressed by celebrity and money. Many of the members fit that description. NHL player, Kid Rock, whoever, you must wear a colored shirt, we have a nice selection to choose from.

    We should all be good to go at your up scale country club then, I for one do have a colored shirt and I'm sure most people do. Everyone's money spends the same doesn't it?

    I also think that your private club would give said higher profile people a colored shirts to wear so they didn't leave. Again not sayin, just sayin.

    Are you talking about a colored shirt or a collared shirt? Because theres a difference. Not sayin, just sayin.

    Change the rules at your club or change clubs.

    There's no dress code in the Rules of Golf. Any dress codes you encounter are entirely up to the course (or driving range or whatever) you happen to want to play. There are a couple of scruffy courses I know of in my town where you'll see guys wearing stuff I wouldn't wear to be out digging a ditch in my backyard. And as for driving ranges, I don't know of any standalone driving ranges where there's a dress code other than not allowing people to be barefoot.

    If there's some place with a dress code you don't like, go play somewhere that suits you instead. If you can't find any place to play that will let you wear what you like, maybe reconsider some of your lifestyle choices.
