Once you’ve reserved a tee time at The Sea Island Golf Club, start considering outfits that adhere to the dress code. We say this because the luxury golf club, not unlike many others, doesn’t permit casual clothing on the courses. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors caution against wearing anything you can go running in, like cutoffs and athletic or tennis shorts. Blue jeans are never permitted on the golf course, and T-shirts, crew-neck shirts and tank tops should be left at home. While golf is indeed a competitive sport, it’s of the sophisticated variety. Khaki walking and Bermuda shorts are allowed — just make sure they sit about three and a half inches or more above your knee. Men are asked to wear collared shirts at all times, while women are expected to dress conservatively by avoiding athletic wear or revealing clothing of any kind. Lastly, sandals are not allowed on the golf course, so it may be wise to invest in some soft-soled golf shoes.
