Golf is one of the most prestigious and respected sports in the world. It's also one of the most stylish! With that being said, appropriate golf attire is important for a woman. Dress code restrictions are common on the course for both men and women. What is proper golf attire and what should you wear on the course? ? We have all the answers to ensure you look and feel your best on the course!


What Are The Rules For Proper Women’s Golf Attire?

Attire on the golf course tends to be very traditional but that doesn't mean that you can't express your personality through your style. There is a difference between an 'exclusive' and a more 'casual' golf club. You can often differentiate by either the golf course's name or hearsay. Just remember to never wear jeans, tank tops, halter tops or anything too loose.

Although not all golf clubs have a specific dress code to adhere to, you should still follow the traditions and standards of most golf courses. If you're a beginner or casual golfer and want to abide by a budget, play on a municipal golf course and stick to traditional choices, including polos and slacks. Depending on the club, women are often allowed to wear shorts and skorts.


Polo Shirts Are A Golf Attire Staple

It is said that when you look good, you feel good! The best golf clothing can enhance your sport by protecting your body from the weather, supporting your control on the golf course, and boosting your self-confidence. Our Striped Trim Performance Polo is made of a soft knit fabric that wicks moisture and offers UPF 40+ protection. Polo shirts are a golf attire staple, as they are the perfect sporty, preppy, yet stylish top to match your golf bottoms. 

Watch The Length of Your Shorts

If you choose to wear shorts as your golf attire bottoms, women must consider the length. Most golf clubs prefer women to wear shorts that sit at the knees for discretion. The best way to determine whether your golf course requires this is to ask. Cropped or cut-off jean shorts should be avoided. Whether you choose shorts or skortscapris or pants, stay stylish and modest!

Avoid Oversized Clothing

Oversized clothing is great for a comfortable day at home - not on the course! Leave any baggy sweaters, pants, or shirts for your next reality show binge. All golf attire should be form-fitting and trim to fit your size. Even if you bring along a rain or wind jacket, it should be fitted to your shape, as oversized clothing hinders your ability to swing freely!

What to Wear to Play Golf

What's acceptable between men and women varies based on the course. However, both are held to high standards of style and modesty! Fortunately, women have far more styles to choose from to ensure they look and play their best.


The first on the list for women's golf attire is tops. Most golf courses require women to wear long sleeved shirts or collared T-shirts. However, sleeveless performance tops are becoming  acceptable. Our Sleeveless Performance Polo is the perfect collared shirt for more casual attire. Whether you want a brighter, colorful polo with more character or want to keep it subtle with classic white, the sleeveless polo is a perfect choice. 
The UPF 50+ Performance Sleeveless Top is ideal for women who want a more trendy daytime look with a myriad of patterns. Our collar top is a more stylish take on the sophisticated golf top yet acceptable per the dress code.

Jacket & Sweaters

Love your layers? You can layer your golf outfit to match your personal style. Not every day can be warm and sunny! All golfers should be prepared for inclement weather and dress accordingly. Plan ahead for a cool day and add stylish jackets or sweaters to your golf attire. 
The Performance Jacket With Roll-up Hood can be the perfect layered piece for a slightly windy day. Always avoid sweatshirts on the golf course, as they are deemed inappropriate. Stick to neutral colors with subtle patterns.


The bottom layer is arguably the most favored of women golfers. The choices are pretty endless! From skirts to shorts, trousers, or dresses, the world is your oyster as long as you're meeting golf attire standards. In the early spring and fall, many women golfers prefer slacks.


While many female golfers prefer to wear pants on the course, there are definitely some advantages to wearing a skirt. Skirts tend to be cooler and more comfortable in warm weather, and they also offer a greater range of motion. In addition, skirts can be very stylish, and they can help you stand out on the course. Of course, not all skirts are created equal. When choosing a skirt for golfing, make sure to look for one made from a breathable fabric, and that has plenty of pockets for storing balls and tees. With a little bit of effort, you can definitely find a skirt that will help you look and feel your best on the golf course.


Golf shorts for women are designed to provide comfort and flexibility on the course. They are typically made from lightweight materials that help to keep you cool in warm weather. Our Pull-On Skuba Knit Shorts are the perfect staple piece, as they are made with a pull-on elastic waistband, flattering 10" inseam length, side pockets for your tees, and ultra-soft scuba knit fabric.


For many women, what to wear while playing golf comes down to comfort and practicality. While many fashionable golf clothes are on the market, one of the most popular options is the skort. If you still want classic femininity without the complete look of a dress, go for our UPF 50+ High-Performance Skort. Perfect for a Sunday on the course!


While the traditional golfing outfit for women consists of a skirt or shorts, more and more women are choosing to wear pants while on the course. There are a few reasons for this trend:
  1. Pants offer more coverage and support than a skirt or shorts.
  2. Pants can be more comfortable to wear, especially in hot weather.
  3. Pants make it easier to move around and swing the club.
  4. Pants tend to be more durable than skirts or shorts and can better withstand the rigors of the game.
