CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Former Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan has been banned from an exclusive country club in Miami.

Jordan's love of golf is legendary, but so is his casual look on the course. He wore cargo pants when he played at the La Gorce Country Club. And he says he's played there before.

But the club in Miami has a strict dress code. Jordan was asked to change his cargo shorts on the 11th hole. When he refused to stop his game to change he was told to leave.

He later found out the course said he cannot return.

The course has a strict dress code requiring collared shirts that are tucked in and Bermuda shorts.

Jordan's publicist has issued a statement saying Jordan is a great golfer and a great guest and the action is quote, "their loss."
