I distinctly remember the first time Tommy, my then-boyfriend (now husband), invited me to the golf course. I had NO idea what to wear. Even though I played golf with friends in high school who were on the golf team, it was very casual and I never even thought about what to wear. But I knew that some golf courses have dress codes, so I went to Athleta, got a skirt and snagged a collared shirt from Lilly Pulitzer.
Tommy and I continued to golf together while we were dating, after we got married and have had a couple golf dates since our son arrived. We’ve played in Pinehurst, in Boone, in Utah, in California and even played on our babymoon! He is an amazing golfer (a scratch golfer, i.e. his handicap is zero) and I’ve been working on my game too. Now that I work for myself AND work from home, I try to get out and play at least once a week for a little social time with a friend. It’s crazy to think that most days I don’t see people other than my family, so this little outing has made a huge difference in my life in the best way.
It’s definitely been a journey to find cute women’s golf clothes – it’s not as easy as you’d think! So many are ill-fitting and/or unflattering. So today, I’m sharing some cute golf clothes, including some of my favorite places to get them. And be sure to download the LikeToKnow.It app and follow me (afoodiestaysfit) – I post my outfit there every time I play!
Golf feels like one area in life that I can wear something a little more bold. I wouldn’t typically pick a top with lots of mixed color or pattern for a normal outfit, but I tend to love them when playing golf! These are a few of my favorite picks.
Golf bottoms for ladies
If I wear a more wild top, I stick to a more subtle bottom. Or vice versa! I love shorts and skorts for the warmer months and chino pants for the cooler months. These are a few that I love.
Golf Pullover and Jackets for ladies
Pullovers can make a golf outfit SO much cuter. If you like more simple golf looks, a jacket or pullover can be wear you add your pattern or a fun pop of color.
Golf shoes for ladies
Golf shoes are a great investment if you plan to play a lot. Get one pair that can work with most of your outfits. It’s easier to get different tops than multiple pair of shoes! I usually wear my Sam Edelman loafers to the golf course befoer changing into shoes. And I always size up half to a full size in my golf shoes like I do with my running shoes since feet expand with activity, especially if you’re walking vs. riding in a cart.
