Pleasant View Golf Course

Be "On Par" With Your Golf Course Attire


By: Taylor Kohlmann With our annual golf outing quickly approaching, we thought it would be a good time to share some tips on how to dress your best for the golf course. So whether you’re a frequent golfer or a golfing newbie, check out these rules on appropriate apparel. And be sure to sign up for #MagnetsDayOff at Pleasant View Golf Course on Friday, June 19th.

For men, appropriate attire typically means a pullover shirt with a collar, polo shirt, sweater, windbreaker, fleece, or vest. Avoid tank tops, t-shirts, or shirts with inappropriate words or images. Pants or shorts made of linen, khaki or cotton are appropriate. Be sure to tuck in your shirt, and maybe even polish off the look with a belt. In most cases, jeans and athletic shorts are not acceptable on the course. In terms of footwear, if you don’t have golf shoes, most places prefer you wear soft spikes or a good pair of tennis shoes.

For women golfers, try out a polo (tank or tee) with a skirt, skort, Bermuda shorts, or pants. Make sure your skirt, skort, or shorts are an appropriate length; typically that means near your fingertips. Avoid gym shorts, short shorts, or cutoffs. If it’s a chilly day, grab a sweater, pullover, or windbreaker to stay warm. Footwear can be a golf shoe, soft spike or good pair of sneakers. Stay away from street shoes with a heel because the heel could make an impression in the green.

May 14, 2015

Magnet's 9th Annual Golf Outing for Madison Area young professionals will be held Friday, June 19th at Pleasant View Golf Course in Middleton. As a reminder, tomorrow (5/15) is the last day to save $20 with the Early Bird Discount!

Without further ado, here are 9 reasons we think you'll want to sign up for this year's outing:

We call this outing “Magnet’s Day Off” because it really is just that. It’s an opportunity for young professionals to take the afternoon off and enjoy spending time with friends, both old and new! More than anything, it's about having fun!

2. Experienced & Novice Golfers Welcome

Our outing is catered to golfers of all levels. Whether you golf in a league or golf once a year (like say for example, our Board President,) you’ll love our scramble-style outing where there will be more to do than swinging your clubs. 

 3. Awards

While this isn’t a highly-competitive outing, we do give out awards to our winning foursome! In addition, we’ll be hosting course contests including: longest drive, longest put, and closest to the pin.  We want to reward those who golf well, but there are still plenty of ways to win prizes on June 19… keep reading!

4. Hungry? Why wait…

The Harmony Bar, Bubbles’ Doubles, and potentially others will have food sprinkled throughout the course for your sampling. You definitely won't go hungry!  

5. Beer!

Did that headline get your attention? Wisconsin Brewing Company will be there to quench your thirst with some samples of its tasty brews. In the words of Homer Simpson, "mmmmmmm beer."

6. Holes with a Twist

Clubs needing a rest and/or looking to spice up the game? Then you’ll really enjoy the activity holes we've added throughout the course. Think hockey sticks for putters and voting off your weakest player during 'Survivor'!

 7. Secret Holes

New this year! There will be two secret holes on the course. You won’t know when you're playing them, but they may end up being your favorite part of #MagnetsDayOff. Doing well on a secret hole could mean everyone on the foursome gets a prize or maybe the score on that hole gets deducted!

9. The 19th Hole
