Fall Golf Course Essentials
Fall is around the corner and you are probably wondering how to dress practically while still looking good on the course. Golf is a sport where people tend to dress in a way that shows their style. But functionality is crucial to play your best for eighteen holes. So how do you dress when the fall weather is not ideal?
Pants: A cool, windy day calls for long pants. Tight-fitting pants are never appropriate for golf. Choose a pair that is comfortable and allows you to move easily. Pick pants that are water-resistant and will protect your lower body from rain.
Rain Jacket: It is crucial to have a rain jacket for the dreary fall days on the course. The game of golf continues on until there is lightning and thunder, so bring a jacket to wear over your men’s or women’s golf shirts. Opt for one that will not inhibit your movements or interfere with your swing.
Vests: Men and women choose to warm up their torsos by wearing knits vests. They look nice paired with golf skirts or pants. Another bonus is that vests keep the arms free so your swing is not affected.
Sunglasses: Fall, along with all seasons, can mean there are some sunny days. When looking down the fairway, you do not want to squint your eyes. Wear sunglasses that have UVA and UVB protection to shield your eyes and skin from the sun. A pair with a strap adds convenience as it allows you to wear them around your neck and keeps them from getting misplaced.
Hats: Wearing a hat will help your entire body stay warm. We lose a lot of heat out of our heads, so a hat is an essential fall item for days out on the golf course. Baseball-style caps come in options made of material that wicks sweat or rain out of your eyes. Visors do not keep your head warm, but can protect your eyes from the sun. Another option is a brim hat. Both men and women select this practical style that provides exceptional UV protection from the suns rays.
Golf clothes for women and men are available at your country club golf shop. If you decide to shop elsewhere, contact your golf course prior to purchasing new attire. Most courses have a dress code you must abide by. You do not want to arrive ready to play to find out your clothing is inappropriate and you cannot golf in the outfit you have worn.
