I'm a solid bogey golfer. I wear nice golf attire when I play because it's the most comfortable. My game is good enough for the little effort I put into it. Being scratch would mean I spend too much time on my game and not doing other things I like. Dressing nicely takes no effort and often gets you treated better. 

 

I don't care what other people wear as long as they play quickly and fix ball marks. Failing the last two is unacceptable. 

 

This^^^I dress nicely too. So what. I wear very nice suits at work too. I like to feel like I look good. Maybe that makes me vain...don't care, it works for me.

As an engineer I wear jeans and offensive tshirts 90% of the time. I did buy a few pairs of "golf shorts" this year and have a polo if I am playing a nicer course. But I don't generally "dress up" for golf and why I'm not a member of a club with a dress code.

 

I have gotten a few comments on my BGD irons because they stand out. But I boast about how cheap they were, so there is that. 🤣

My goal for as long as I have played golf is to be a scratch golfer.  LOL I have not made it yet regardless of how I have dressed which has run the gamut from gym shorts and no shirt to decent golf pants and shirts that match my shoes, belt, socks, towel and hat.  So to answer the question I will take the scratch game!

Unfortunately I think those days are gone at most golf courses. It is now football stadium golf where almost anything goes.

By way of example:

yesterday I want to the course and stopped at the range to warm up. There was a roughly 40-45 yo. guy and 3 young boys estimated by me to be about 10-12 ages.

They were separated by 4 empty stalls and did not appear to be a group. One of the boys was dressed in full out Loud clothing, (fine, well dressed) another had an orange tee shirt and an orange headband - karate kid style, and ill fitting cargo shorts.The guy at the end hits his driver and the head snaps off and goes about 50 yds down range. The boy with the headband shouts “did you see that?” he then turns to the broken driver guy and very loudly proclaims “Wow! That f**king sucks”. 

 

I’m shaking my head and wondering how it is possible as the kids head to the first tee.

Golf courses have sold their souls for the almighty $$.

Obviously the most important thing to to look the part, full on golf uniform(and yes it exists)-clean, well kept conservatively coloured polo shirt, neatly pressed pants(preferably khaki), saddle or wingtip shoes(spikeless not permitted) and a baseball style hat that is very clean. You should not be allowed on a course without wearing this.

Give me the par score for sure. I have a buddy who is this exact person. Was a model for Nike in his younger days and looks like a linebacker that was outfitted with PGA Tour gear every time we play but can easily shoot 100+ no problem. Also has a backup outfit for the post round activites!lol! Love the dude like a brother but it's quite comical to say the least.

For me there is nothing wrong with looking good. Not sure what a tour player your buddy looks like. Does he have sponsors logos on the shirts he buys or is it more that he looks like a golfer. For me, I take pride in how I look. Not really sure I would be comfortable playing in basketball shorts or jeans even. And yes this is my perspective. To each their own. But I would rather take that versus someone who shoots a great game but looks shabby. Now, in all seriousness, if you are shooting par or better, you will at least be dressed in some form of golf attire polo shirt and some golf shorts or pants.

May take the thread off on a tangent but...how should a course or what is a good way for a course (public) to maintain there selected level of dress expectations without embarrassing someone and not coming off as snoody?

 

I see fewer and fewer public courses with the true expectations/dress code put out there.  Or you get the "proper golf attire" blurb.  You needn't look too far here to see that everyone has their own definition of proper golf attire.

 

I recall playing a round with a friend one summer at a state park course.  It was brutally hot that day and this was in the days before performance fabric type shirts.  He had on a cotton polo shirt over a white cotton undershirt.  By the 14th hole or so he had soaked both shirts so decided to take off the polo.  Marshall Dillon was on him quick about it.  Now I doubt they enforce that rule.  And I know they let people play in jeans because a group of us played a round there this spring when it was still very cool.  Some guys were wearing jeans.

 

I've said it here before but there is some sort of neural path in our noggins that connects the fact you are wearing certain clothing to how you act.  I know when I put on a suit it is weird but I get hyper aware of manners and my mannerisms.  Like because I am dressed up (for me) I even eat and drink differently, even subconsciously.

Low single and scratch players are always top of the pyramid no matter what.  In golf, clubs do the real talking.  And the tier right below is golfers of any skill who know how to handle themselves, stick to the rules and are not slow.  The loud full-of-crap hacker is not uncommon but you spot them after a hole most of the time.
