@Ironcat...not sure what you're talking about....restaurants, funerals, weddings, theatre and business meetings do NOT HAVE MANDATORY ENFORCED DRESS CODE!!! save a few exceptions.
I overdress (which may surprise you!)...I was one of maybe 10% who wore suits/tie at the three funerals/memorials I attended last year...at one, Richard Dreyfus (actor!) was wearing Dad jeans, New Balance sneakers and a windbreaker in front of me!
Restaurants have virtually zero dress code anymore except for shirt and shoes. Can't recall the last restaurant I went to that required jacket and tie (Lutece?).
Business meetings have different dress requirements depending on business...but as I said in my first post, work is work - you expect to have to dress a certain way at your JOB!!!
Theater - been wearing jeans and sneakers to everything for 20+ years...even in NYC growing up. Never got kicked out or got a dirty look.
Weddings...of course you respect the wishes of the wedding party...I don't show up at LACC in cargo shorts either!
Competitive organized sports have uniforms...golf (non professional) is not in that category. It is the equivalent of a pickup basketball game or a casual tennis match.
What, exactly, am I being deprived of?
So how comes you're happy to respect the wishes of wedding organisers, but not golf club owners?
There are plenty of courses without a dress code, if you do not have the will to respect standards, any standards, there are plenty of places to go.
But, you are missing out on some cracking paces to play golf...
Did you actually read my post, or do you just like to argue and get in the last word?
I even said, and I quote...I don't wear cargo shorts to LACC. Which, if you know LACC, means pants only (slacks, actually...tailored), tucked in golf shirt (collar), belt and golf shoes. Hat brim facing forward.
I never said that I wouldn't, as a guest, refuse to go somewhere because of a dress code. I don't think there is a golfer alive who would turn down an invitation to play ANC because they have to tuck in their collared golf shirt. My guess is most would get a whole new set of threads to wear to that event!
I'm never going to embarrass my host due to my attire or behavior.
But I'll never voluntarily JOIN a club with these silly, IMHO, rules. But I have no issue playing as a guest - the golf course trumps the dress code.
Their club, their rules.
