It’s no secret that Michael Jordan is an avid golfer. It’s also no secret that his sense of style is…unique. To that end, MJ apparently golfs in cargo pants. That by itself isn’t offensive to many, but it is to a particular Miami Beach country club: La Gorce Country Club.
Members of this country club are supposed to wear bermuda shorts when they golf. When Jordan was mad aware of this, while donning his cargo pants on the course, he wasn’t interested in changing. As a result, the club will not invite Jordan back.
Personally, I think the club needs to get over it. It’s Michael Jeffrey Jordan and that alone makes their establishment more attractive. They should allow him to play in his patented stonewash jeans and mocknecks if he wants to.
New York Post with details…
Michael was wearing cargo pants on the course,” said a spy. Jordan’s multipocketed pants were apparently against the dress code that, sources say, dictates that members and guests must be attired in a collared shirt and Bermuda shorts. But when 6-foot, 6-inch Jordan was offered a chance to change outfits, he demurred. “He was given the chance to change but he didn’t want to,” a source said. The source added that Jordan, who was enjoying a round at the club with one of its members, played on anyway. The source added that members complained about Jordan breaking the rules and, “He won’t be invited back.” A rep for Jordan said, “Michael Jordan did wear cargo pants . . . He had been there many times before and had worn cargo pants previously, and had never been made aware that he was violating any dress code. This time, he was made aware of the violation on the 12th hole, and at that point . . . he did refuse to interrupt his game, and return to the clubhouse and change. We were not aware that he is not allowed to return to La Gorce. I guess it’s their loss — as MJ is a great golfer, and a great guest.”
