2017 Golf Fashion (outfit by Golftini) (golf.com)

From full brimmed hats, long skirts, white blouses and oversized woolen jackets/sweater to functional, fashionable, breathable and light weight colorful skorts, polos, sweaters and jackets, golf fashion has certainly seen some major changes over the past 90+ years.  

And to all those involved in this transformation, I say THANK YOU! I remember the days that it was so impossible to find fun women’s collared shirts that I ended up raiding my dad’s closet in an attempt to find something fun and then trying to shrink it down to my size—not an awesome plan :-)–and for the bottoms, well let’s just say those pleated knee-length khaki shorts were anything but stylish or flattering.  Todays clothing, as a whole, is way more fun, fashionable all while being comfortable and easy to play in as well as clean.

After doing some research, I went to the expert, Becca DiBona, the head of buying at my club (thank you, Becca!!!) for golf fashion and functionality tips as well as a lesson in the brands that are excelling in the various clothing areas—pants, shirts, outerwear, etc.

Enjoy, good luck and happy shopping!!
