Why is this attire (left) required on most golf courses? I understand that golf started as a sport for wealthy gentlemen, but why keep up this pretentiousness? Everything seems to be about image everywhere you look. You aren’t welcome unless you follow the dress code. It’s what sets them apart from J. Q. Comfortable Public I suppose. No Happy Gilmores allowed!
It’s this sort of exclusivity that bugs me. OK – Truth be told, golf bugs me. I’ve smacked a ball, and I didn’t find it very enjoyable. I had more fun driving the golf cart! To each his own, I suppose!
