Golf Clothes – What’s Hot and What’s Not

golf clothes

Golf has become one of the most popular pastimes for men and women – so, of course, golf clothes have grown and evolved significantly over the years. Gone are the days of thick, baggy polo shirts that could double as tents in a heatwave (although they still exist if you’re into them). Instead, modern garments are lightweight and designed to breathe. They’re also fitted and stretchy to allow for full movement – something that’s vital when swinging a club and spending up to 4-5 hours walking around the course.

On the upper-body, smart sleeveless blouses with collars are the go-to option. Polo shirts are also available, from golf classics like Lacoste to high-street names like Ralph Lauren and The Upside, with stripes and other preppy detailing to add a bit of flair. A vest is also a great layering piece, especially for colder weather. And if you’re in need of extra warmth, a sweatshirt or denim jacket can be added to your ensemble. Just be careful not to wear anything with big banner logos or any other branding that might distract you from your game.

When it comes to bottoms, khakis and chinos are ideal, whether in plain colours or patterns such as argyle. Alternatively, opt for shorts if the temperature allows it (but avoid soccer or football shorts that sit too low on your leg). Golf socks should be white and stay tucked in your trousers; long-length socks can make your legs look uncomfortably warm and aren’t allowed at some clubs, while short ones can rub against shoes or cause friction with bare feet.

A golfer’s closet isn’t complete without a couple of golf-specific accessories such as a blade putter cover or an embroidered monogram. You can also tee off with a bucket hat or pair of sunglasses.

If you’re serious about your golfing, it’s well worth checking out the dedicated ranges from the likes of Peak Performance and Lululemon, who have adapted their activewear know-how to offer breathable, form-fitting apparel that works with every part of the body as you move.

Brands that are newer to the scene also have great pieces for golfers – for example, Greyson, which was founded by an ex-SVP of design at Ralph Lauren. The label’s clothes are smart and stylish, with plenty of colour options, including a golfing-themed argyle print. Meanwhile, Canadian activewear brand Lululemon has a full range of men’s and women’s golf clothing. Its shirts, pants and shorts are made from moisture-wicking fabrics that fit incredibly well, with the addition of details such as reflective trims to keep you visible when playing in low light.
