You seem quite angry lol. All he's saying is that it is, by definition, an exclusionary rule.Lol, decent shorts and a golf shirt is an exclusionary rule? Nobody's asking for a suit and tie on the golf course, just simply decent shorts and a golf shirt. It's not that difficult. Enough of this.
I know a number of people who view golf as a sport for stodgy old white guys - and to some extent they're not entirely wrong. Having a dress code that is stricter than any other recreational activity contributes to this view. Now, none of these people find wearing golf shorts and a polo particularly objectionable, but the dress code turns them off because of the (not entirely false) things they infer about the sport. Their reasoning is basically why would I play a sport filled with all these fickle people and inane rules when I could play another sport where everyone is much more laid back. Anyone who already likes golfing just deals with the dress code even if they don't agree with it because its a minor annoyance at worst.
