Trousers / Shorts
Tailored trousers are the most favoured style of trouser for ladies on the golf course. The chino style is also popular among keen golfers along with skirts , shorts and skorts .
The ideal length for golfing trousers is resting simply across the top of the shoe . Accurate measurement from hip to ankle will ensure that your buy the correct length.
Cropped trousers are also suitable if worn with the correct socks and footwear.
The length of your shorts must be reasonable; just above the knee. Avoid short shorts; these are considered unacceptable.
The ideal length of golf trousers will leave the hem resting across the top of the shoe. The wrong fit can put you off your game by:
- tripping you
- being uncomfortably tight
- restricting your movement.
Accurate measurement from hip to ankle will ensure that you buy the correct leg length Remember; hems can be altered for a better fit if necessary.
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.
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 your 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:
Generally, skirts and skorts are acceptable during the summer months. Be careful though; the length must be no shorter than just above the knee. Keep flexibility and freedom of movement in mind. Neutral colours are most common when selecting skirts and skorts; typically grey, brown and cream colours.
The shirt you choose to buy must be practical. You can add a touch of character and personality to it by choosing vibrant colours or eye-catching patterns.
Sleeveless shirts with a collar or sleeved shirts with a round neck are acceptable, again with your own preference on colour.
Most ladies golf shirts are manufactured with a micropoly / lycra blend of fabric to wick the sweat away from your skin so that you feel cool and dry. Fabrics that do not do this could be less than flattering.
Adidas, Glenmuir, Galvin Green, Callaway, Green Lamb and FootJoy offer good ranges of ladies golf clothing.
Hats tend to be worn on the golf course for practical reasons. Even in the UK, vision can often be restricted by glare from the sun. Some ladies choose to wear a hat with a visor during the summer months.
Golf gloves prevent the handle of the club twisting during play. They give you a more secure grip without the need for added pressure; allowing you a more effortless swing of the club. It is important that the glove fits tightly around your hand without being too tight for comfort. A loose glove could lead to the club slipping in your hands.
Golf gloves come in a range of sizes to suit any hand. Right-handed players should wear the glove on the left hand. For left-handed players the glove should be worn on the right hand.
Brands to look out for include FootJoy, Taylor Made, Nike, Wilson and Mizuno.
