I think it just depends on the situation, but I've probably worn jeans less than 5 times on the course in my life.  Obviously always dress to the rules but I can remember a few times a buddy has called me to go play a quick 9 around twilight when its October-November, February-March and the weather is cold and I might wear jeans if its last minute.  But I would say they're a definite no-no unless its that situation.  These were also courses that are muni's where dress code isn't taken very seriously.

I want to know what kind of khakis people are buying if their jeans are more comfortable.  

I guess if a course allows them, I can't pass judgement on someone wearing jeans.  But I'll choose to wear a decent pair of pants no matter where I play.

My home course is pretty low key, I don't have a problem wearing jeans there if it's cold.  Most the time I'm a khaki shorts guy though when it's nice enough.  If I ever go somewhere different though, I dress appropriately (95% of the time not jeans).

I accidentally wore jeans as a guest to a private course once (Walloon Lake Country Club for those who might know), oh boy...big mistake.  I've never felt so dumb in my life.  I just couldn't believe I even forgot about it in the first place.  We were going down the first hole and a manager come out on the course and was like "excuse me sir, you do know that denim is not allowed correct?".  He just said to remember it for next time and let us continue thankfully.

I think it's strange that people think jeans are more comfortable than chinos/dress pants/khakis/golf pants/etc..  I only own one pair of jeans- I HATE 'EM!

I keep the following items in my right pocket and I can't see them fitting w/ jeans:


~5 tees
-1 ball
-2 plastic ball markers
-1 quarter
-1 dime
-1 pivot tool

I think it looks a little tacky when people wear jeans on the course but I don't think any less of the person.  And it certainly doesn't bug me in the least (as long as the club is ok w/ it).

do you guys just not like wearing jeans?  

I prefer to golf in what I prefer to wear in general when given the option, which is jeans (of course if there's a dress code I'll follow it, although a dress code will make me less likely to play there vs a course that doesn't have a dress code)

do you jean disliking golfers just not like jeans, or is there some sort of unwritten rule lost on this 30 year old baffoon :-)

I wear Jeans a fair bit, especially on the weekends when I am out and about and the weather is cool. So I have no problem with Jeans, there is just a time and place for everything and golf should never ever be played in Jeans. There is no way my jeans are more comfortable than khakis though, especially doing something semi-athletic.

My dad's course which is private won't even allow you to wear them onto the premises.

I wear jeans to the local muni from fall to spring.  Dress slacks to the nicer courses.  During the summer I'll sport a decent pair of shorts most often when I play.  

A few years ago while on a trip down south I stopped by Kenny Perry's course in Franklin, Ky. for a quick 18 while driving by.  The guy at the pro shop (not Kenny) paired me up with a guy in full hunters camo, a little face paint and all.  The guy went out for a little archery in the morning and decided to hit the course on his way home.  

That was a first for me.  But believe it or not that good ol' boy and I had a great round that day and if I remember correctly he finished a stroke or two over and I played about the same.

No.  

I did see a guy on the range yesterday with a pair on.  The loose unstructured kind, with a pair of black golf shoes.  Didn't look half bad as far as that sort of thing goes.  But yeah, no jeans for me on the course or range.

No, not ever.  I did wear a T-Shirt to the range once. That was about it for me. Jeans and golf just don't mix. Plus they are more restricting to the swing I'd imagine.

No jeans on a course for me, but a couple of the local muni's allow them. I'll wear them to the range if I go at lunch or after work when it gets cooler outside, because that is what I wear at work.

Then again I work daily in jeans and a golf shirt


Just saying hey I got jean shorts too I wear.

Honestly I have worked at clubs where it would not be cool, but I am right now a member at redneck country club

Jeans don't just look bad on the golf course, they don't insulate properly, aren't water resistant and restrict your motion.  Remember kids - cotton kills.

I hate to sound like a jerk, but I always have a negative first impression of someone that I meet on the golf course that is wearing jeans.  Show some respect for yourself.  That's just the way it is...

Let me get this straight you do not want to sound like a jerk. You purchase your respect in a department store.

Just makes me want to throw all my jeans away   Not!

I most certainly wear jeans on courses that allow casual attire, which my home course is fine with.  

A collared shirt with leam demin in good repair is comfortable and does not detract from anything, IMHO.

The pro wears them at times, too--so blah to those who say you can't.   :tongue:

In any golf course in the country I come from, Jeans are not allowed. Not even the caddies wear jeans on the course during weekly caddy day.  Even the lowliest of courses will implement these rules or at very least frown upon those that choose to dress and play in that manner.  I guess it's the course's way of imparting some modicum of respect for the game

Let me just say this for all the youngsters.  30 years ago you couldn't wear shorts on many courses due to "respect for the game".  

How many of you NOW wear shorts to the club and never give it a second thought....

So, what kind of wife beater t-shirt do recommend that I wear with my jeans?

Actually at most private clubs there is a written rule that they are not allowed, and many public facilities as well.  If there is a sign at the course you are playing that states "appropriate golf attire required"  this means no jeans, collard shirt, no wife beaters etc.  I worked at a private club years ago that allowed jeans when the weather was below 40 degrees, but personally I will wear some courdorouys or better yet athletic compression pants under my khakis or cords.  Jeans on a golf course just look very tacky, and dare I say redneck IMO.  Jeans=John Daly  Cords or Khakis =golf tradition and class, IMO.  

I understand times are changing and that society in general is dressing more casual but, and I for one am thankful I rarely wear a tie any longer, but dressing for success whether is it just playing golf or work says a lot about a person.  That being said if I go to the muni across the street from my house I will wear whatever to the range, often I just got done mowing the yard, but if I play I will dress "appropriatly".  

Lastly different parts of the world have different expectations on what is acceptable, if you are playing at a snooty upscale east coast club the expectations are much different than a small town 9 hole course in Kansas.  I have played courses and seen guys wearing Wranglers, cowboy hats and Western shirts while playing, LOL, the only thing that really bothered me was the guy was wearing cowboy boots and walking on the greens, which left heel prints.  Point being before you play a place you have never played before it is good to no what is expected, a phone call in advance is never a bad idea.

***I have actually played courses that allowd people to play sans shirt.  IMO this is where the line should be drawn, if you want to go to the beach go to the beach, but keep your damn shirt on******
