Shirt tucked out is casual, but is it proper golf attire?

Shoes are not so specific these days. As long as you have sufficient grip and dont hurt yorself by falling.  Caddies wear running shoes on course. I completely approve of trekking shoes and football shoes with mini spikes like golf sneakers these days.

Just take 30 seconds to read the notices around the vicinity of the changing room and you'll have your answer.  Very Happy

In many parts of the world, one is even required to remove any headwear upon entering the clubhouse, so what's a tucked in shirt?  Very Happy

I guess many clubs impose a ruling of a collar tee shirt, minimum shorts not more than 4" above knee (except ladies, I don't know why) and tuck in the shirt. Rolling Eyes 


I think it's more important to not be a loud mouth, especially when they are golfers teeing off and putting.  Mad

I oso noticed in many golf clubs in Australia esp Perth (from the Vines to Marangaroo) and once in Rockhamption (Capricorn), golfers are super casual playing in shorts singlets roundneck tees even sports sneakers albeit during friendly games but during competitions they do dressup and all look every bit like PGA pros lol!

Extracted from Golfsmith




The clothing in golf is a part of the decorum of the game, perhaps more so than any other sport. Not only is there an unspoken etiquette, but most golf courses have a dress code that requires particular attire in order to play. These dress codes are not as restrictive as the rules for PGA Tour or LPGA Tour players, but they are designed to ensure that amateur players adhere to a certain protocol to help maintain the game's traditions. It is always a good idea to check with course management about the club's dress code.




Shirts
In nearly all cases, golf courses require that men wear collared shirts. This usually means traditional cotton, microfiber or polyester golf shirts. Some course managers also allow modern-style golf shirts that have a turtleneck-style collar. Women's golf tops vary greatly, with or without collars, but all adhere to a traditional sense of modesty. This means no bathing suit tops or tube tops. T-shirts or tank tops usually are not permitted for men or women.





Pants
Men should wear long pants made of cotton or a polyester blend, or dress shorts with a pleated or flat front. Some courses will permit men to wear jeans, but others do not. Women also should wear long trousers, capris or dress shorts, or what are called golf skirts. These garments are made with a cut pleat or V-notch on the front or side to allow for motion in the golf swing and include an undershort. Cut-off jeans and workout, running or basketball shorts usually are not permitted for men or women.





Shoes
Footwear is considered part of the game's equipment. Golf shoes will help stabilize a player's swing, allow for traction when walking and provide comfort during a round that can last several hours. These shoes include spikes on the soles. Many courses now require "soft" spikes made of hard rubber or plastic, not traditional metal. Furthermore, other types of shoes that may appear to offer the same comfort and stability are not necessarily permitted. Sneakers or running shoes are sometimes allowed on golf courses, but not always. Sandals, street shoes and boots are not permitted on most courses.





Socks
Socks are as necessary with golf shoes as they are with any sports footwear. Over the years, socks have become an important part of golf attire, mainly because advances in fibers help to keep a golfer comfortable and his feet dry. Golf socks come in a variety of styles. Many golfers who wear shorts choose ankle-length socks that are barely visible above the shoes. But more traditional tube socks also are permitted. Although a course dress code is not likely to specify what kind of socks a player is permitted to wear, there is unspoken etiquette that requires a player to wear socks that complement the clothing.





Hats
Golf hats usually are not specified in a dress code, but certain headgear is more appropriate. Baseball-style hats or visors, for men and women, are the most popular on a golf course. Their primary function is to help provide protection from the sun. Straw hats of many varieties and what are known as Ben Hogan caps also are permitted. But headgear such as cowboy hats, dress fedora-style hats, beanie caps and gag hats are generally not appropriate for a golf course.

Most local clubs have a standard rule stating that golfers including range users have to abide by, they usually don't allow round neck tees, jeans, improper shoes to be worn, common sense should prevail, wear golf attire n you cant go wrong.

I think entertainment places like Clubs/Bars/Pubs, people usually are more lax on women attires due to the obvious ... But not sure if it is also applied to Golf courses ...

lol!

Last Saturday morning (wrote wrongly earlier as Sunday) at Poresia I saw someone from afar wearing black "stocking" with pink bermudas trying to retrieve the ball at Sakura Par 5 water hazard. Told my flightmate the "Ah Nia" if not careful might fall into the steep slope whilst trying to retrieve "her" ball. On clearer observation after my flightmate told me it's a guy (my eyesights are failing me), wah lau eh, it's a Jap. Shocked He wore a pink bermudas with black stockings to protect his legs (I believe or just being fashion conscious). The colour coordination and clothings is so amusing and feminine. I should have taken a picture.
