Know Your Club’s Dress Code
First things first, make sure that you know exactly what the dress code at your chosen golf club entails. It is important to familiarize yourself with this to ensure that any apparel you buy for golfing is appropriate for the specific course where you play.
When choosing golf shoes, comfort is the most important thing. You’re going to be walking in your shoes quite a lot, and if they pinch or rub uncomfortably, it will negatively affect your game. Seriously, if you have blisters by the final hole, you are not going to be playing your best. Pick shoes that fit well and still feel good after a few hours of walking. It is also a good idea to have a pair of waterproof golf shoes for early morning games or days when the weather is less than ideal. Keep in mind that most club dress codes prohibit shoes with any kind of spikes on the sole because they will damage the green.
Most golf clubs require a shirt with a collar, and you want something that is comfortable and doesn’t restrict movement, which is why polo shirts are the best choice for golf. Choose a breathable material that will keep you cool even after you start to sweat. Invest in a few good polos with both short and long sleeves so that you’re covered for different weather.
We recommend khaki slacks or shorts for golf because they are dress code appropriate and made of breathable fabric that isn’t restrictive. Opt for lighter colors when you are playing on a hot day to keep your temperature optimal. Make sure you choose something that has good pockets so that you can keep a few extra tees and balls in reach. Most club dress codes also require a belt to be worn.
You should invest in some good golf gloves. These are especially important when playing in wet weather because they prevent slipping, but gloves improve your grip in perfect weather, too. Choose a pair that fits well–many newbies buy gloves that are too big, and their scores suffer because of it. If you find that your hands get too hot, opt for fingerless gloves for more breathability.
