Here is some dress code do’s and don’t for the British Open. There is an unspoken etiquette about what to wear at a golf tournament. PGA and LPGA have a certain set of restrictive rules. These rules are in place to maintain the tradition.
Here are a few things to be aware of when it comes to the dress codes of the British Open and other events. The protocol for shirts is to wear a collared shirt, cotton or breathable microfiber is the best. Some courses allow turtlenecks. Do not wear T-shirts or tank tops.
Pants that extend to the knee area with pleats or a flat front are usually the best. Cotton is the most common pick of fabric. Golfers wear golf pants and water-resistant material. Do not wear any type of workout clothes.
Soft spikes are all the rage today for shoes. Golf courses have banned metal spikes to protect the greens. Golf shoes now have soft spikes or rubber studs that help grip the ground while doing minimal course damage. No sandals or boots are to ever be worn.
If you are wearing shorts, wear ankle-length socks that are barely visible above your shoes. These are a common choice. Tube socks are allowed, and the players are encouraged to wear them.
Certain types of hats are more appropriate than others. Baseball hats, visors, and straw hats are preferred. No cowboy hats, fedoras, or gag and joke hats.
