What??? How did I miss this! Crazy!! How can sleeveless blouses or dresses be inappropriate business attire? And open-toed shoes? Wow!
Many years ago, my father, an attorney fought for his right to wear bermuda shorts on the golf course. He won in the end, but it was a struggle. I just searched for the case, and came up with the club rules:
Men are required to wear collared shirts tucked into slacks or pants, and shorts must be no higher than 4" above the knee. Women are required to wear skirts or shorts that are no shorter than five (5) inches above the center of the back of the knee (tennis attire worn by tennis players exempt), collared shirts or non-collared with sleeves, tailored slacks, or dresses. Denim is not permitted on the golf course but is allowed in the clubhouse. The following attire is not acceptable: tee-shirts, abbreviated attire, athletic wear, or baggy clothing. Coverups are required for swim wear and workout attire (http://www.brentwoodcc.net/guests).
