The only person that should wear jeans on the golf course is the guy who came there to repair the broken carts.

Jeans are actually awful cold-weather clothing.   They don't stop wind and they make you cold when they get wet.   Wool pants are way way better for cold weather.

Wow I see this is a never ending thread! I also do not see anything wrong with jeans on the course if they are nice and presentable. I personally hate wearing them when I play,but that is me. Different strokes for different folks!

I just think jeans don't look right on a golf course, but I know you can't stop it.  That's why I joined a private club where jeans aren't allowed.  Just today I was at the range when a guy came to the range in jeans.  A few minutes later, a staff member came out and told him jeans weren't allowed.  The guy went to his suv and changed into some slacks.

In my opinion jeans feel uncomfortable to play in, and I like to "look like a golfer", so I don't wear them on the golf course. But I don't think it's a big deal what other people wear during a casual round of golf on a public golf course.

I'll go out in jeans (nice jeans) and my chuck taylors when I jump on the home course after hours. If I am playing a full scheduled round I always dress to the 9's. I don't care what anyone else is wearing and I don't care what someone else thinks about me.

I play most of my golf at River Oaks in Grandview, Missouri. We play in jeans.  I've seen sweat pants. I've seen hoodies. We play in what is comfortable.  If I play a course that has a dress code then I'll have to follow it, when in Rome...  But I see nothing wrong with wearing jeans on the course.It is only wrong when the course says you cannot.

+2 and exactly what I thought. I joined my club for easier access to tee-times, practice facility, and the social aspect/organized competitions. I really do not look at what people are wearing. Bottom line is, even public courses have the right to set a dress code, and it is our responsibility as golfers to follow said codes. IE -- I sometimes wear a ball-cap out to eat, but more formal places/even a chain likes Houston's, ask that gentleman remove their caps. So you remove your cap. Bottom line for golf if you want to be safe, call ahead and/or always wear a collared shirt tucked (I love untucked, but now tuck at the club), a belt, shorts that meet the knew not below and not well above, no jeans of any type, no cargos, and nothing sleeveless or mock (unless cold weather), and you will be fine.

Unless you own your own course, then you wear whatever the heck you want :-)!

Jeans for me?  No

This is a personal preference though and I don't care what anyone else wears.  Hell, late in the year, one of the guys at our club played in a sweatsuit.

Only if it has the matching beer stains on it.

I love wearing jeans and I wear jeans to the driving range.

On the golf course I always wear slacks and a collared shirt. I think it really depends on what course you are playing.

If I'm playing a public course that I paid <$30 to play then I expect to see jeans on the course. If I'm playing at a higher end course I expect everyone to dress nicely. At the same time I don't really care and would never act differently to someone wearing jeans.

Wow, thanks for the lessons on how to dress.  You left out how to dress while you mow a yard. Yeah, I know, you have a lawn service, so do I but only because I don't know how to dress for the occasion.

I'll bet you could be a wedding planner if you wanted.  One thing I'm wondering about,
is it in fashion when at  the "club" to wear a cute little sweater draped  across your back like Arnie?  Would it still be appropriate at Houstons? Seriously,all you arrogant, pompous and metrosexual (at best) people need to lighten up.  You're on a golf course not meeting with a CEO.  True, private courses can do whatever they want but public courses not so much.  It's no wonder the game is losing players.  
I love the people that say "at least I want to look like a golfer"!  Guess what, I wear slacks at times and jeans at time and I can't tell the difference in my game.  Bottom line, don't judge who's a good golfer versus a bad golfer or their social standing by what they wear.

As a kid who only played a few times a summer I wore jeans.  Once I got a real job and rejoined golf in my late 20's, I went to slacks.  

I only judge players by their pace of play.  A tour Pro who can't keep a pace up is just as crappy a player in my mind as a drunk taking 5 hours...  Don't really care what they wear

wow, i cant believe this thread got 64 pages long.  i agree the way you dress has no effect on the way you golf.  private clubs can do as they wish but i sometimes where jeans and a t shirt to the public muni courses. if its an upscale public course i do wear proper clothing otherwise you will get turned away and i would hate to get turned away and all but i dont see what difference it makes when all some people wanna do is enjoy a round of golf.  i understand courses dont want guys running around shirtless and all and that is fine and much appreciated but jeans and a t shirt doesnt hurt anything or anyone on the course.

Since I'm new I might as well keep the thread going.  I practice at a decidedly downscale natural grass range where, when it's cold enough, 75% of the people will be wearing jeans (this is Texas, after all).  When playing, though, I dress for the course that I'm playing.  I don't usually wear jeans on the course, though, preferring shorts 8-9 months of the year or khakis when it's a little colder.  If it's cold enough, though, I'm not averse to wearing jeans if I'm at the right public course, since I wear jeans in my spare time.

2 things from me.

i am against the golfers wearing jeans on the course but i guess people can wear whatever they want as long as it's not against the club rules.
i rarely see golfers wearing jeans around here whether it's private or public (north new jersey).

and i had to quote bingo1976's post because most golfers in jeans look like the ones in the pictures.
if one doesnt think he (or she) absolutely does not look like those in the above pictures, he may want to put on the jeans and check himself in the mirror.
