Is There a Dress Code for the Masters Golf Tournament?

Golf Casual

    Observing patrons provides clues as to what clothing is considered appropriate. The Augusta Convention and Visitors Bureau notes that most people wear "golf casual" on the course. Patrons typically wear golf spikes, although sandals and sneakers also are worn. You can find further detail about what constitutes appropriate golf casual attire by looking at dress codes at other country clubs. For example, Chicago's Lake Shore Country Club defines golf casual as collared shirts and slacks or Bermuda-length shorts for men and women, with golf-length skirts also suitable for women. Denim clothing is never acceptable.
