What To Wear (And Not to Wear) On the Golf Course

Are you thinking about attending MAGNET's 2012 Golf Outing? Two humorous movies that come to mind when I think of hitting the links include Cadd

and Happy Gilmore. But do you really want to use view these as examples for what to wear when teeing up? Well, if hockey jerseys and tight plaid pants are your thing, suit up! But for the rest of us, here are some tips.

-Always default to wearing a collared shirt. Yes, some local courses don’t require them, but The Oaks does per their website: “Men are required to wear sleeves and a collar. Women have the choice of either sleeves, collar, or both.” Look, I even did the research for you!

-If you don’t have golf shoes, running shoes are your next best bet. Courses prefer you have the proper shoes, but if you don’t play enough, don’t worry about it! Stay away from flip flops (you would be surprised about this; I used to work at a golf course and yep, lots of guys would wear flip flops to play in). Men and women will find that there are more options of shoe styles out for golf now: women can find a slingback-type of sneaker and golf shoes that look like a sneaker, and guys can find golf sandals (although I would opt for a “standard” golf shoe if you’ve never golfed at the particular course).

-Women opt for more conservative bottoms, if possible. This means Bermuda length shorts (to the knee), capris in a cotton/sporty fabric, nice khakis or a golf skirt. Keep in mind that you might be able to wear shorter shorts (what you’d typically find in stores; inseams of 3”-5”) to some courses; but if you’re not sure, stick with safe.

-Men look for shorts and pants in a sporty, wicking fabric to keep you cool. Lots of brands make golf shorts for guys set with pockets to keep balls and tees in; golf pants are nice because they’re typically wrinkle-free and made of lightweight, movable and breathable fabrics.

-Guys, just don’t wear jeans. Just don’t. And keep your shirt on! (Yet another eye-opener I had working at the golf course…)
