The Definitive Guide to Ladies Golfing Fashion

Aug 29, 2008
I was perusing Golf for Women the other day and wondered where are the women who wear the golf attire modeled in women's golf magazines? I've never seen women, professionals included, who would dress in such expensive and outrageous clothes!

It's easy to spend money outfitting yourself for golf. Hats, sunglasses, gloves, shirts, shorts, socks, windbreakers and shoes all add up quickly, even if you shop the sales. Add in equipment, bag and cart and you have to play quite often to keep down the "CPU" cost per use.

One glossy advertisement showed a model in short shorts (like that's allowed on courses!) that cost $275, the Tse golf shirt ($595), jacket by Ralph Lauren ($185) and two-toned Utuser shoes ($425).

That comes up to $1480; I could never hope to get the CPU on that outfit anywhere near a normal level in my lifetime! Don't get me wrong; I love clothes. I really love shoes, but could never afford, or want, golf shoes that cost more than the national budget of some small countries.

Granted, you want comfortable shoes that don't look like something your grandmother would wear, but you can easily find less expensive and fashionable shoes. I have several really stylish golf outfits, none of them brand name. If I totaled the cost of all of them up it would not come up to the price of the Tse golf shirt. Personally, I'd rather have several stylish outfits and one outrageously priced one.

If I were to wear a $1480 outfit to play golf, I would simply be too worried about getting dirty or perspiring to play a decent round.

In terms of picking shoes to go with the outfit the first thing to consider is that Your feet need to be comfortable! Have you ever developed a blister while walking or running? It's all you can think about and it ruins the experience. Don't let uncomfortable shoes ruin your golf game.

This is one area where you shouldn't let your frugality make the decision for you. You will be wearing these shoes many times and they should be considered an investment. Comfort should be your biggest concern when buying shoes. Your foot should not move at all on your heel when you walk, yet your toes shouldn't feel cramped. Have you shoes professional fit to your feet and walk around in them before you buy them.

Proper golf shoes should be waterproof so that your feet remain dry in damp conditions. Good socks are important too; they will wick perspiration away from you feet, keeping your feet dry and comfortable. All golf courses prohibit metal spiked shoes in the effort to protect their delicate greens. Purchase shoes that allow you to change the rubber spikes easily, and while you're there, purchase some extras. You never know when you might lose one. Replace the spikes when they become worn.

With all the things you have to worry about while playing golf, your feet shouldn't be one of them. When it comes to golf footwear, quality counts.
