What Is The Proper Golf Apparel?
by: Gordie Guide

When you decide to take up the sport of golf, there are certain questions you will need to know. What brand of golf club works best for you? Are there nearby public courses available? Can you afford to play on a private course? Will you need golf lessons?

Finally, there's the question of what to wear while playing golf. Selecting the right type of clothing is as important as learning any other aspect of golf. It encourages a certain apparel etiquette that is grounded in comfort.


If you wear comfortable clothing you will feel better, which will ultimately be reflected in your game. For example, you may find that very loose shirts interfere with your swing when you are using your driver or even when putting. A tight shirt may constrain your freedom of movement and interfere with your concentration.

Golf clothing manufacturers continuously anticipate and fulfill the needs and desires of their customers. Today, advancements in technology have allowed companies to manufacture resilient, comfortable, and breathable fabrics in a myriad of styles and colours.

Dress Code

Besides style and fit, there are also other considerations in choosing your golf apparel. You must know what attire is permissible before you dress for the golf course and understanding this is key. For instance, most golf courses require adherence to a dress code. It is in your best interest to ask about their requirements when looking for potential courses that you might like to use in the future.

Golf courses usually have separate dress standards for male and female golfers. For example, women's clothing that reveals a bare midriff is quite often not permitted. Some courses may require that a woman's shirt have a modest neckline and collared shirts are often mandatory for men. Jeans, warm up suits, or certain types of trousers are often forbidden for all players.

Avoid Being Inconvenienced

You don't want to embarrass yourself by having to run to the pro shop or a nearby store to buy a shirt when you visit the golf course for the first time, just because you wore a collarless shirt. A little careful research before selecting your golf wear will provide you with benefits in the long run as you gain experience in the sport of golf and learn to enjoy the game.

And for safety reasons as well as protecting the appearance of the golf course, golf shoes are usually mandatory. These special shoes help prevent you from slipping and sliding on the course, which typically have challenging landscapes and layouts. They also help to stabilize you when you swing your club.

So, do your research, get comfortable, respect the club rules and you will be well on your way to enjoying your new sport in style.
