Proper golf clothing etiquette starts with a collared golf shirt. Though most golf shirts are short-sleeved, there are several long-sleeve options available in department and athletic sites. Collared golf shirts also come in a mesh material for better ventilation in hot weather.
Women should also wear collared shirts, as long as it's not plunging in the front.
While golfers don't necessarily have to keep their shirts tucked in, it does project a neater look.
In cold weather, a light sweater or windbreaker is acceptable over the collared shirt.
Golfers should wear either khaki pants or shorts. Jeans, sweatpants and jogging pants are unacceptable, as are cut-off shorts. Pants and shorts should usually be solid colors and have loops for a belt; a belt should be worn, even if it's not needed to hold up the pants or shorts.
Women can opt for golf skirts; again, they should not be too high or revealing.
Golfers should wear golf shoes with soft spikes. Generally, no sneakers, flip flops or sandals. White socks usually go with any outfit, though black socks will help complete an ensemble as well. Baseball-cap style hats and visors are perfectly acceptable on the golf course.
