Mens Fashion Tips On The Golf Course

in Golf
You are probably going to the golf course for the first time and since you have never been there, you are wondering what to wear or what goes as far as fashion on the golf course is concerned. Golf has always been a sport that is regarded as cultured yet stylish and high class.

In most of the contemporary golf courses there is an adherence to stringent dress code and if you are going to attend a golfing event, you will be no exception to this general rule.
There is a uniform standard for shirts in the gold course. If you are going to put on a top, it will have to be a shirt with a collar.

The most widely accepted and popular is the polo shirt and white is the color of golfers although any particular shade is quite acceptable. For golf players, t-shits, tank tops or sweatshirts are completely unacceptable. In golf, decency and ease are the catch words although respectability and smartness are substantial.

Both long and short pants are acceptable on the golf course but denim and cutoffs are definitely off. The kinds of shorts that are worn in or to tennis games are completely unacceptable and you will not get away with sweatpants, basketball shorts or the shorts worn by athletes. If you are going to wear pants, they must have leather loops and you must have a leather belt on. You can have on shorts when it is war or hot and long pants when the weather is cold but the rules remain the same. The khaki shorts are acceptable although they should be long and not higher than the knee.

We cannot forget your feet when we talk about what to wear on the golf course. Firstly, shoes with metal spikes are out because these will cause lots of damage to the gold course. It is better to have on shoes with soft spikes or cleats built into the shoes. There are many fashionable golf shoes and while you get those, get the socks to match them. Sandals are definitely out.

You might want to consider carrying a jacket or a sweater or even a sweater vest. This however depends on the conditions of the weather and you can never go wrong on a golf umbrella. This is more so especially because in case it rains, the umbrella will be useful but if it does not rain, the umbrella can help you if the weather might be too hot. It would be wise to have sunglasses, a hat or visor and sunscreen lotion. Don't forget a towel and carry plenty of water.

Many sports apparel companies sell golf wear and you will find golf clothing at many stores. It is important to be in conformity to what is requisite otherwise you will not be allowed into the golf club. Most importantly when you buy golf wear, be sure to get what suitable for the course and still comfortable for you.
