What's your on course style?

Recommended Posts

Traditional bias, with a pop of color at times - Golf shorts and polo tucked, belt, "dad's" ball-cap style golf cap or wide-brim sun hat.  Golf slacks and generally a quarter zip and/or jacket below ~50F.  Shoes bias to traditional style.  I walk and carry the majority of the time.  Summer temps around mid-90's.  Winter months I'll play into the 40's, and rain.

Ever since my first trip to Ireland, I converted to links golf. If you ever go to Ireland, you gotta play Lahinch, Ballybunion, Tralee, Enniscrone, Rosses Point, and Portmarnock Hotel Links. There are also some lesser known courses that are shorter (69 pars) with spectacular views…like Spanish Point and Kilkee.

I’m also a tradionalist…collared shirt (no sleeveless “wife beater” shirts), no cargo shorts or slacks, shirts tucked, no backwards hats, belts, and I DETEST SLOW PLAY. You either hit it well or you don’t…it either goes in the hole or it doesn’t, so there’s no sense standing over it to long and being rude to the other players in your group or the groups behind you. Padraig Harrington, Patrick Cantlay, Azahara Munoz, and Carlotta Cigando…do you hear me!

Depending on course, in good weather barefoot and ranges anywhere from tee or tank with gym shorts to polo and nice golf shorts and anywhere in between.  Gets down in the 40s and the shoes go on and as far as long pants go usually just nice rain gear type pants.

I enjoy wearing novelty print polos, shorts and Jordans or Footjoy Premieres.  Shirts are normally tucked, but will untuck based on the shirt design.  If weather is 60-70° and it’s competition, I’ll wear pants. I like the flex in tech fabrics and favorite designers are Peter Millar, Johnnie-O and RLX.

I will add another item that I wear - I wear my range finder on my belt.  It’s totally out of the way when I swing and it’s always handy.  Lastly, I’ll never be one of the dozen or so people this past year that backtrack along the course asking if anyone found a lost range finder.  I’ve never seen anyone else wear one but my case has a convenient belt loop.

I have been mostly wearing pants, joggers, or some sort of stretch fabric khaki or lulu. That’s mainly because of when my balls goes in the trees or the rough I have come out with some terrible contact rashes on my legs  or ticks. This is probably my area specific but for that reason alone I will stick with pants.  For a shirt if it has a collar I think it’s fair game, funkier the better.

No telling with me. When I  was a flat belly I always tucked just to show off. Now that that ship has sailed I'm untucked. Baseball hat if I play early or late, bucket hat mid day. 

  I usually dress fairly neutral but will pull out the bright pink shorts or flamingo shorts with friends just for laughs.

  For a practice round at the local muni I'm not against wearing a tee shirt.

For sure, Mid Michigan retiree casual set for all 3 seasons when courses are open. Shorts when above 60* jackets when under 45 and umbrellas when lightning is around.(Tin foil lined inside reflects it).

definitely in "the funkier the better" for shirt styles. all have a pattern or weird logo of some sort.

always a polo. summer is lightweight dry tech, colder months a midweight polo, and a 1/4 zip if needed.

always wore casual shorts and a belt, shirt tucked in.  wife got me some patterned lightweight pants off temu I will be trying this year (think Ian Poulter style loud...lol)

while I try to remain somewhat color coordinated, it doesn't affect my game if it's not exactly stylish either.

shoes are footjoy golf sneakers, and a pair of neon/black off brand golf sneakers. (molded soles,  no cleats)

my buddy always knows when my round has gone to crap. subconsciously I generally will look disheveled with a half pulled/untucked shirt. ( I didn't notice this until he told me)

always a hat too, whether it's a visor, bucket, or ballcap.

I 90% shop at thrift/goodwill type stores as I tend to find awesome high brand stuff for stupid cheap, and in near new conditions.

I am definitely more of a casual golfer unless I'm playing in a tournament.  I shop bargains when it comes to clothes so it could be "normal" colors or bold bright colors.  Always a hat and typically shorts because of the weather.   As for the golf shoes, it's all about comfort for me and currently I have some New Balance spikeless that are grey with a pop of bright blue.

Living in Key West, everything I wear on the course is moisture wicking.   I wear golf shorts all year long that have patterns and solid colors.   Always polo shirts tucked in and are mostly solid and/or striped.  The shirts tend to have either major golf tournament logos, other course logos or no logos.  I tend to hit eBay for low-cost shirts or post tournament sites for deals.  Lately, I have adventured into more fun patterned shirts.  Low cut socks, always a belt and my New Balance or Sqairz shoes just about completes the outfit.  I really hadn't thought about this too much, but it seems I have way too many hats.  I don't actively go out and purchase them, but I must have 40-50 (maybe more) of baseball, bucket and other golf hats.  Maybe it's because they just don't wear out?  I have a dozen or so hanging on our dresser, eight bucket and wider brim hats hanging on the back of our spare bedroom door and a container of about 25 or so in a container in my closet.   Does that make me a hat hoarder?

I have gotten more and more "modern traditional" (is that a thing?). Fairly tailored stuff but small/no logos and solid colors. I am digging the tour visor these days but also will rock a rope hat. Solid white shoes only. I don't go for those smathers and branson belts, a little busy for me.
