Score a par for the course—in attire, that is
Whether the courses you frequent are public or private, rules are rules. Don't assume that just because you're playing on a public course you can show up in jeans and a T-shirt.
What should the rest of us do? Most assuredly, when you're in a club's dining room, follow the house rules. Many clubs have a no jeans and, indoors, a hats-off policy. It's a small gesture of respect that, much like the game we all love, is steeped in tradition that goes back literally hundreds of years.
