How to Buy Flattering Golf Trousers

Wearing the correct trousers can affect your how well you perform when on the golf course.

Movement, comfort and fit are the essential factors that will help you to the top of your game.

Freedom of movement in your clothing will allow you to swing with ease. Comfort and fit can enhance confidence; all of these contribute to improving the standard of your game.

Generally, the perfect trousers will depend on:

  • Fit / Sizing
  • Material
  • Durability
  • Weatherproofing

Fit/ Sizing

The ideal length of golf trousers will leave the hem resting across the top of the shoe.  Inadequate fit can put you off your game either by tripping you or by causing discomfort.

Accurate measurement from hip to ankle will ensure the correct length is purchased. However, hems can be altered for a better fit where needed. 

It is important that the trousers do not cause any discomfort through tightness around the waist or thigh areas as this may affect how you address the ball and could trouble your swing.

A good sizing guide converter is as follows:

Take care to find the perfect golf attire for your individual needs. Ventilation is an important factor when considering the fit of the trouser; they need to be breathable and flexible during play.

Nike, Adidas, Callaway and Foot Joy are amongst the leading suppliers of all golfing attire, to match their huge ranges of  Clubsballs, bags, trolleys and so on. Remember that no one brand will make your time on the golf course more enjoyable but clothing that fits you well will help.

Flattering for women

Making sure that the golf trousers complement a female player’s figure can contribute to sporting performance; looking good is feeling good and that boosts confidence. 

You should pay attention to the hips, waist, bottom, and thigh areas. These define your lower body; well-fitted trousers will flatter their shape. Tailored golfing trousers can be more effective than off-the-peg trousers to sculpt a perfect silhouette.

Be careful to consider the weight of the fabric; you walk along way playing a round of golf.

Ladies may consider the following options to complement their figure if trousers are not most favourable:

Flattering for men

We all come in different shapes and sizes; what’s flattering for one man may not work so well for another.  Trousers with a higher waistband may be better for a larger man whereas standard cut ones may be more suitable for a leaner man.

Trousers that fit around the waist may be too long or too short; buy longer ones as they can always be shortened.

Adidas, Ping, Ashworth, Nike, Stromberg and Oakley all produce well-designed golf trousers for men.

Getting the fit right will be kind to your figure regardless of your size.


Buying golfing trousers of the correct material is extremely important.

  • Is the material lightweight?
  • Is it durable?
  • Is it flexible?

These are all significant questions to consider when searching for your new or pre-owned golf trousers on eBay.

Most golf clothing are made with moisture-management fabrics that are used to keep golfers comfortable and dry regardless of weather conditions.

The majority of golf clothing is manufactured with a micropoly/lycra blend of fabric to wick the sweat away from your skin so that you feel cool and dry. This material also provides UV protection as well as being very durable. Nylon and Spandex materials are also used to provide optimum flexibility so that you can move freely and comfortably while you play.

When buying golfing trousers, it’s worth looking out for quality.  Many designs include vibrant colours and patterns that may fade after a few outings. There are products available to help maintain the original colour. However, having an eye for quality may save you money long term.

Finally, don’t choose heavy or overlaid materials as these will weigh you down and restrict movement. Try to stick to light weight, flexible materials.

Keep the Weather in Mind

It is particularly important when playing golf that you wear golfing clothes. Many golf clubs and golf courses have specific rules as to what you may and may not wear. These should be observed.

Golf clothing is specially designed for all weather conditions; keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Keen golfers will know how unpleasant it is to be caught out by poor or changing weather conditions, particularly rain. To tackle this issue all-weather gear has been produced to keep you on course. These fully waterproof and insulating garments combine moisture management fabrics with sports performance flexibility; they ensure that you stay warm and dry.

Wear layers

The most important aspect of dressing here is to not be too hot or restricted. Layering allows flexibility and the ability to shed items of clothing if the day turns out to be warmer than expected or exertion levels mean that the body temperature starts to rise.

If the day is going to be cold then it is important to dress in layers, as with other outdoor pursuits.

There are all sorts of different materials to buy from very expensive silk to wool and thermal, man-made materials. A comfortable shirt or polo neck should be the start point; you can then add sweaters over this.

It is better to buy a number of lighter shirts and sweaters and have the flexibility to take layers off or add them on than to have one heavy sweater.

Make sure that your golf clothes sit comfortably under your wet weather gear.

Golf Club Style

The majority of private members golf clubs have a dress code in place. Adhering to it shows respect for both the course and other club members and guests.  You would expect the dress code to include the following:

If you are playing at a particular golf club for the first time, double-check on the dress code before you turn up.

Fashion and fun put in an appearance on the golf course, whilst remaining practical. Vibrant colours and patterns are used for lots of reasons, mainly to reflect character and personality. Tartan trousers, for example, have been quite popular for golfers of all ages.
