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

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.

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

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 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). ...

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?
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.
