Saw Justin Thomas wearing a hoodie for a couple of days play at the weekend, comp still seemed to run ok (and obviously didn’t do his standard of play any harm)

If we take an individual & give him that hoodie, Van Rooyen’s elasticated joggers, Tigers ‘T’ shirts, Coetzee's neck/face mask thingy and Fowlers space boots… does he get to play a game at your place or fall foul of the dress code and have to resign himself to spray-painting the clubhouse wall?

This is a great question, had me chuckling. I would be pretty confident he would get a game at ours, we are fairly relaxed on that front. However, I could write a decent sized list of clubs that would turn that person away up here, no question.

I'm okay with the pushing of these boundaries. I'm in the camp of happy to remove many of the dress codes that clubs have.

October and a slow news day? :)

I didn't see it, but I am sure most places wouldn't bat an eyelid. Justin Timberlake had a hood at the Dunhill Links. No one sent him over to Tom Morris' to buy a V-neck.

One fine evening this summer I was playing the 17th which runs parallel to our 2nd.
I spotted four young lads who (I'm stereotyping here) looked like they had put the playstation controller and joints down, and ventured out to play tiger woods golf for real. Long hair, pony tails, Jean's and trainers. Like a golfing voyeur, I watched to see their newbie swings. I also seen them step aside and let a two ball through.

The world continued to turn and everyone went about their day.

Pains me to say it but I suspect that he would be declined access to my course and, even if allowed on, I suspect he would get fed up of people coming over to advise of the purported breach of the dress code.

Was it this one ? Looks nice and yep no issues at our place and seen a few wearing them at a number of places - it’s a golf top
How do you define a 'golf top'? When does a top become a golf top or another top remain just a top?

Many clubs would say no to a hoodie, not sure why but they would. Anyway, if a golf clothing company puts their name on a hoodie why does that make it acceptable when before it was unacceptable?

I'm all for it incidentally, although I don't know if I could carry it off :D. A hoodie doesn't bother me one bit but somehow a t shirt becomes acceptable if Tiger wears it and a hoodie is acceptable because Tony Finau, amongst others wears one.

I guess that this shows that ultimately dress codes will be broken by pro's and mfrs, not members at AGM's.

I am sure there would be a contingent of our more senior members that would definitely suggest it isn't golf clothing and against the dress code. For me, it doesn't look too bad (not my cup of tea mind) but wouldn't have too much of a problem with it (other than being to much for my own conservative dress sense)

Anyone actually got one of these hoodie golf jumpers?


Is the hood actually used or a fashion statement.


NB - I fully endorse the use of a hood during outdoors all weather sports.

I have it in the sharkskin ( grey colour) its very warm

As you say, no one died.... and we survived the demise of tweed jackets and collar/tie too!! Looks decent.... have you swung a club with the hood up? How was it?
