What is Appropriate Golf Attire for Men and Women?

The game of golf has its own set of rules as far as attire is concerned. The game is steep in tradition and; therefore, dress is very conservative. It’s always important to make sure you wear a collared shirt, check to see whether or not shorts are not allowed, if they are, make sure the shorts are long enough, usually just above knee length. What is never allowed are tank tops, t-shirts, denim, running attire and tennis attire.

Check Attire Requirements With the Pro Shop

It is always important to call the proshop before you go to the golf course, just to make sure you don't make any big mistakes about attire and have to miss your tee time or buy new clothing. Also, when you speak to the pro, most courses require spike-less shoes or soft spikes so double check that.

Then when it's time to go to the golf course, purchase a lightweight bag with lots of pouches to keep items in at all times. Here is what you should carry in your bag for the golf course: an umbrella, a wind breaker or some type of rain gear, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, plenty of golf balls, extra golf gloves and golf tees. It will make the game much more enjoyable if you're prepared for all conditions of play.
