Just go to a Beall's Outlet. A lot of the men around here could use a trip to Beall's Outlet, where there are dozens of inexpensive golf shirts that look so much better any day than tee shirts, especially the ones with the sleeves cut out.

Contrary to advise given, you don’t need a collared shirt. T shirts are not allowed, the shirt needs to have a buttoned opening in the front. We can thank Tiger for that updated relaxation in the men’s dress code. The women’s dress code is much more lenient, sleeveless shirts are allowed.

Can someone please explain how a mock turtle-neck shirt with a one quarter inch collar is different from a T-shirt? I think that all of my T-shirts would meet their definition for a mock turtle-neck.
If you play like tiger woods, you can wear a mock turtleneck. Otherwise stick with a collared shirt.

If a man had written a post telling the women of the villages that they don't dress up to his standards I would be here pointing out he has no business policing the clothing choices of women. So I will do the same and suggest that your comment was out of line. If a man prefers to wear a t-shirt that is his choice unless he wishes to be on the golf course.

Typically double par is the maximum you should take on each and every hole (e.g. max of 6 strokes, including putts, on a par 3 hole). That is because there probably are a number of groups behind you that want to play. Be considerate and keep a steady pace, so you don't back up play.
When my wife research golf she said that the courses were rated 1-4 with the 1’s we’re beginner courses. That is where we will go and later in the day with the hope there are not a ton of golfers around.

I didn't say you couldn't play them, I just suggested that you keep up the pace. That includes picking up the ball and moving on when you've taken 6 strokes on a par 3. And I checked The Villages Golf web site again, and confirmed that there are no "beginner" Executive courses.

That web page states "Executive Course Ratings The Executive Golf Courses are rated based on the difficulty level of the course. It is displayed on a scale of 1 to 4 with 1 being the friendliest and 4 the most challenging. This allows each resident to choose what playing level best suites them so they will be able to maximize their enjoyment when they come out and play." By friendliest, they mean those with few hazards and shorter holes.

All I am suggesting is that we all try to be considerate to the groups behind you. For a true beginner, I would suggest the pitch & putt courses where one can get a lot of practice on their short game first.

Could never get my head round that one.
Once played in TV with a man wearing bib and brace denim, and a John Deere cap!
Local story is that one of the Morse family played in them, so it became OK in TV.
Turn up to play in them at my home course, and you are out of luck for a game. As it should be!

And, here is another tip for the driving range. Place the basket under the ball shoot before you put in the token. I learned that one the hard way.
T-shirts are now allowed at the driving range.
I was getting ready to play Escambia one day and a man checked in wearing a T-shirt
with logos on it. They let him play.

You pick up after THREE over par, NOT DOUBLE PAR...
Par 3 pick up after 6.
Par 4 pick up after 7 NOT 8.
Par 5 pick up after 8 NOT 10.
Oh yeah, and on an executive course par 4 hole, you DO NOT have to wait for them to clear the green...

Guess you don’t go to Walmart with golf cart. The range is right behind Walmart on off 466 in Oxford. While you there go across street to Goodwill, they have plenty of golf shirts for 4 to 10 bucks.
