Dress Code

Postby Glock23 » Tue Feb 27, 2007 7:24 pm

So I am driving down to Columbus next month to play in my first sanctioned tourny. I am not a PDGA member, so I will be paying the $5 for the temp membership. It is a C tier tourny, so is there a dress code that I have to follow, or is a t-shirt and cargos ok? If I need to wear a collared shirt, is a mock neck ok, or does it need to be a polo type collar?

For B and C tiers, and for most Am only tournies, no dress code is required, other than pretty much wearing clothes without rips or tears, etc. For A-tiers and higher, a collared shirt is required, but it can be a mock neck or if it's dri-fit material it can have any kind of collar. Most tournies you go to, no one is really going to care. Only really for big events will you find some sticklers about dress code. I find I play better if I feel that I look somewhat professional though. I usually wear cargo shorts and a dri-fit polo.

Think of it as a uniform them... like every team wears a uniform. NFL has very strict policies regarding uniform look, complete with fines for non-conformists.

Since it's the Professional Disc Golf Association sponsored events, I think they are trying to get people to see it as a valid sport and having a bunch of folks walking around in cutoffs, no shirts or shoes or sandles wouldn't make a good impression (like it or not).

Having said that, I'm glad it's only for the A-tier events.

So long as it remains a loose dress code and not a formal one requiring tons of select gear that's bought specifically for disc golf...unlike my last job... :roll:

I don't think so, I remember just wearing a regular T shirt and shorts.

I'll be at BG, and will be wearing a collared (golf) shirt. I haven't worn one in the past for our local tourney's (B&C tier or unsanctioned), but I think since BG is an A tier that a collared shirt is in order.

Heck, I'll probably start wearing one for all tournaments. Our local DG club has a hookup with an embroiderer that will personalize the shirts with name and PDGA # on the sleeve, and just about anything else you can think of! :D
