What To Consider When Putting Together A Women’s Golf Outfit
So, where do women golfers start when selecting proper golf attire? From dress code to personal style, we have you covered.
The dress code is an important thing to consider when planning your golf wardrobe. Whether you’ll be golfing at country clubs, or public golf courses can determine what you’ll need to wear.
– Private Golf Courses
Private courses typically have stricter dress codes for female golfers, though this might vary from region to region. Private golf clubs usually have length requirements for golf dresses, shorts, and skirts, as well as certain requirements for women’s golf shirts, including specific brands that can be worn. If you plan to join a private golf club, it would be a great idea to verify the dress code before shopping for golf outfits.
– Public Golf Courses
Public golf course dress codes are a bit less restrictive than private clubs though they are allowed to have whatever dress code they see fit. Most public golf course dress codes typically restrict jogging shorts, denim, tee shirts, tank tops, cargo shorts, open-toed shoes, and bottoms that are excessively short or revealing.
– Municipal Golf Courses
The most liberal dress requirements are typically seen at municipal golf courses owned by the city. Some municipal courses don’t have a dress code at all. They frequently permit attire that is typically prohibited at public courses or private clubs, including yoga pants, non-collared shirts, and denim. Most of the time, women golfers don’t really need to worry about what to wear at a municipal course.
Golfing involves a ton of outdoor activity, like walking a lot, and swinging your arms several times on each hole so choosing the right materials is very important when putting together your golfing outfit.
- Comfort and Fit – Choose golf clothing that is made out of material that fits well but lets you move freely. Clothes that are too baggy or loose, or shoes that don’t quite fit right simply won’t work on the golf course. Choosing clothing items that are itchy or wearing uncomfortable shoes can distract you from your game.
- Durable – Durability is key to not buying clothing items quicker than you want to. Make sure you are choosing golf apparel that is made out of durable, long-lasting materials.
- Stretch – Certain garments are manufactured with elastic material to provide a better fit and more movement. Golf apparel made with 4-way stretch materials will allow you to move freely and without any restriction.
- Breathable – Golfing in warm weather requires your clothing to be made out of breathable fabrics to keep you as cool as possible. Some items even offer materials that thwart sweat!
Golf apparel is known for being pricey; in fact, some items cost twice as much as tennis apparel and everyday clothing. But you don’t have to pay top dollar for high-quality clothing; if you’re looking for a decent deal, it’s always a good idea to compare shops and compares prices.
Making yourself comfortable during the round of golf may help your match score so it’s important to consider the weather before getting ready for the course. Make sure to wear light clothing in warm weather so that you can feel breathable and cool, even in the hottest temperatures. Be sure to layer your clothing in cooler weather. Adding a golf sweater or wearing a jacket might be a great addition to your attire.
You can’t forget your own personal style! Luckily, women’s golf fashion has come a long way. Whether you like a more classic style, bold prints, a pop of color, or a sporty look, there are lots of stylish options for women’s golf clothes that follow all sorts of fashion trends, you may just have to dig to find them.

Read below for a couple of our most Frequently Asked Questions about Golf Outfits For Women.
Where do I buy golf outfits?
There are a few places we suggest. Amazon and your local sporting goods store or golf boutique are great places to shop for golf attire.
What can I wear to the driving range?
This really depends on if the driving range is public or private, and if the range has its own specific dress code. If the driving range is affiliated with a private golf course, you can expect to follow the same clothing requirements as you would while golfing. The good news is that since the driving range is a place for practice, oftentimes, more athletic clothing, such as hoodies and non-golf-specific athletic pants. Just be sure to double-check the dress code before you go.
