Golf Attire Deemed Pretentious

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!

Now this (right) is my kind of golf course!

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.
