Winter time in Colorado is the only time you should wear jeans on the golf course. Well this is coming from a teenager in highschool but hey when the course isn't even "open" and its snowing hell ya your wearing jeans.

can someone explain to me how jeans are warmer than khakis? About the same to me and if you are really that cold, wear long underwear. Jeans have to be about the least comfortable thing to swing a golf club in.

Not even to the range.
I won't even step on the grounds without a collared shirt; it just doesn't feel/look right.

I concur, too me jeans are less comfortable than khakis,
BTW the other day I was getting ready to tee off and this teenager was getting ready to play with what appeared to be his father.  He was wearing the really low cut, tight fitting "rock star" type of jeans.  The kind of jeans that IMO are only fit for women........ skinny women, maybe the dumbest looking fashion statement I have ever seen on a golf course.

i'd never wear jeans on the course, and i wouldn't be able to anyway cause my club doesn't allow jeans.
i just think it makes u look like a hacker, and i don't see how it could even be comfortable

Yes I think all you jean haters should return to the more traditional wear of   knickers a sport coat a long sleeve shirt and tie

Its 2008 gentleman not 1910



By the way I wear jean shorts to.

***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******

Me too.....Garden City Golf Club on Long Island, NY.  Past the 3rd hole, you can play naked if you wanted to.  BUT, anywhere in the clubhouse except the locker room you are REQUIRED to wear a sports coat.  Pretty awesome place, definitely NOT uptight or "uppity" even though most would stereotype it as such knowing they'd need a sport coat to visit.  May be the most laid back club I've ever visited.

I still haven't heard why people prefer to wear jeans over khakis.  A decent pair of khakis are lighter and softer than any pair of jeans I've ever owned.  You can wear under armor underneath khakis in cold weather and when jeans get wet, they get really heavy.  I know the last thing some people want to get labeled is "preppy", but if putting a different pair of pants on defines who you are, that's weak.  

I also understand that many wear jeans to work and want to get a few holes in after work.  I get that too.  But when I play golf, the last thing I want to do is think about work....taking 5 minutes to change pants and put something nice on to get myself in a different state of mind is well worth it.  I want to enjoy golf and usually anything that reminds me of work on the course is contradictory to that goal.

Well I just got back from playing one of the nicest public courses in the state and saw no fewer than 10 guys in jeans.


I don't recall ever seeing so much denim on the course...kinda strange.

As my user name implies, never jeans on a course and rarely, shorts.  Also:

Hat off immediately when entering from out of doors
Shirt tucked in

Just my upbringing that appearance is very important in all facets of life.

Only on the cheaper city course when its under 50* out.  Blue Jeans are almost high class there, the other week I saw someone in cutoffs and hunting boots.

Any where else it's dress slacks.  Always collared shirts tucked in and clean shoes.

I simply love jeans and am amazed at how snobish this thread is.


Just the same the masses have spoken and the anti jeans people are clearly the winner

Hey guys if I wear pleated jeans by Docker does it count as jeans

Is it politically correct to discriminate against denim

I mean Levi's and Wrangerl built this country

Just wish I could vote denim to the PGA tour  I have been a long time advocate that they wear shorts.


They let the women????

I've never worn jeans. In fact, I've never even worn shorts (even in Texas or Florida summers).

I suppose it is (to some degree) how one starts playing golf ... what you get used to. I started playing four decades ago. Jeans and shorts were simply unthinkable. The traditions of the game were every bit as important as the strokes.  Things have been relaxed a lot since then. The formal environment just doesn't exist any longer. I have some younger friends these days that simply cannot understand why one can't play in anything that is comfortable (jeans, shorts, t-shirts, whatever).

Really, it cannot be explained. I personally, would just feel so uncomfortable that my game would suffer ... I'll I'd be focused on is how odd it felt. But I suppose I don't really care what anyone else does.

I can't really complain that much about the death of standards ... because really, it is all a matter of perspective. when I was learning (in the 60's) ... there were old guys then bemoaning the fact that tradition was dying ... because no one wore dress shirts and ties anymore (which was their comfort zone when they started playing). ... ;)

I wear Jeans more often than not,  They are never old or tired looking, but single colour jeans whether thats Tan, Grey or Black coloured.

Wearing Jeans doesn't make me less polite, play worse, have bad etiquette, or fail to repair a pitch mark/divot.  Having a 50 year old dress code is simply ancient snobbery of the typical upper class, captains parking spaces and all the BS that goes with golf, I truly hate.  The sooner Golf gets into the real world the better,  its one of the places where you step back in time the moment you park up.  Why have so many said "no way"? What the hell difference does it make?  

You may perhaps have  a public footpath next to a hole, and a person walking there dog has a pair of Jeans on, and you think nothing of it, but the guy in front putting on a green is wearing jeans and you say no way?  Sorry I just don't get it.

It makes all the difference. It's a gentleman's game, shrouded in hundreds of years of history and tradition. And it's far from snobbery. I am anything but a snob. Should you wear jeans and a wifebeater to a funeral? A wedding? your graduation? A job interview? How about opening a door for a woman? Saying please and thank you? And where do you want to draw that line regarding what to wear? Respect the game and its traditions.

I've worn a pair of light blue carpenter jeans in January. Winter rate off temp tees. During the regular season I never wear jeans. I usually wear cargos during the winter since they're heavier and have a few decent pairs of golf pants and shorts for during the spring/summer. The courses I play don't make a big deal about dress. I think a couple of them say "collared shirt" but they don't enforce it. I could really give 2 $hits but it does look pretty redneck when I see guys out there in Tshirts and jeans.

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
what country do you come from?
