I distinctly remember the first time Tommy, my then-boyfriend (now husband), invited me to the golf course. I had NO idea what to wear. Even though I played golf with friends in high school who were on the golf team, it was very casual and I never even thought about what to wear. But I knew that some golf courses have dress codes, so I went to Athleta, got a skirt and snagged a collared shirt from Lilly Pulitzer.
Tommy and I continued to golf together while we were dating, after we got married and now we love to play golf as a family since our son arrived. We’ve played in Pinehurst, in Boone, in Utah, in California and even played on our babymoon! He is an amazing golfer (a scratch golfer, i.e. his handicap is zero) and I’ve been working on my game too. And, it’s really great quality time as a couple.
Now that I work for myself AND work from home, I try to get out and play at least once a week for a little social time with a friend. It’s crazy to think that most days I don’t see people other than my family. So this little outing has made a huge difference in my life in the best way.
My Favorite Cute Golf Clothes for Women
It’s definitely been a journey to find cute women’s golf clothes – it’s not as easy as you’d think! So many are ill-fitting and/or unflattering. So today, I’m sharing some cute golf clothes, including some of my favorite places to get them. And also be sure to download the LikeToKnow.It app and follow me (terilynadams) – I post my outfit there every time I play!
Okay, let’s get into some outfits! I currently have cold weather outfits at the top, and warm weather outfits at the bottom. I’ll swap the two when we get into spring, but for now, I’m playing in long sleeves and pants.
Cold weather golf clothes
Finding cute golf outfit for colder days is SO HARD. I’ve struggled to find clothes that are warm, comfortable, and flattering enough to wear to the golf course. I’ve found a few great pieces that work for a lot of outfits. Here’s what I’d buy if you need just ONE good cold weather golf outfit. See this look on me below in the first two photos.
I golf in this Lululemon running vest and I cannot sing its praises enough. It’s SO good. It’s the most flattering, comfortable vest, and since it’s made for working out, it’s perfect for golf. It comes in a ton of colors. You can wear this vest with any long sleeve shirt you have (and since it has a collar, you could probably get away with it and a crewneck shirt if your club requires collars for ladies). Read my full review here.
You also need a flattering pair of pants. These Spanx pants are perfect for the golf course because they have stretch but they look really nice. I also love the crop which is much more flattering that longer ones.
I recently got these Athleta Brooklyn Pants and they are perfect for when it’s 50-60 degrees. They’re flattering and lightweight but still keep me warm on chilly mornings. They’re not as dressy as the Spanx ones but they still look polished, even with them being athletic material.
If you need a warmer pair for when it’s below 50 degrees, these Athleta Ranier Joggers are a thicker material. They fit like a loose legging but are tailored enough for most golf courses.
The video below shows a few of those on me so you can see how they fit.

If you’re going to wear a vest, you’ll want a long sleeve shirt. If your club requires a collar, I think a white long sleeve (or 3/4 length) top. This one is super affordable and will work with almost every outfit, but I also love this Peter Millar top, since everything they make lasts forever.
I LOVE this jacket. It’s the perfect weight and fit. I have it in white, which is a great color for the golf course since it goes with everything. I actually run in this jacket too, which means it’s super comfortable while you’re moving (or swinging the golf club).
I’ve had 7 different pairs of golf shoes over the years and these are far and away the cutest AND the most comfortable. Other golf shoes pinched my shoes, made my plantar fasciitis act up and weren’t that cute. These are comfortable, even walking 9 or 18 holes, are breathable and are so cute and comfy that I often leave them on for the rest of the day because I just forget to change out of them! With other golf shoes in the past, I couldn’t wait to get them off. True Linkswear are true to size, but if you’re between sizes, size up.
Warm weather golf clothes
I’m not going to talk about each outfit since I’ve linked the details below each photo, but I did want to call out my top picks. So, if you get just ONE outfit for golf, get the below three items, all of which are pictured below in the first outfit.
I am OBSESSED with it. It’s my favorite pick for warm weather golf and athleisure. It’s so flattering and comfortable. I’m wearing a size small. I love that Nordstrom carries it too, since I’m a cardholder and they have the best return policy.
2. A white top
This will be the most versatile item in your golf wardrobe! I prefer sleeveless over sleeved, but get whatever you feel best in. My favorite brand is Peter Millar. It’s a little pricey, but the quality is unmatched. I’d rather have 1 high quality top than 5 cheap ones!
If I’m not wearing my beloved Spanx skirt, I love a dress for spring and summer golf. It’s easy since you don’t have to match a top with a bottom, and it’s such a feminine look. I’m currently loving the Abercrombie Traveler Polo dress since it has a collar. It doesn’t have built in shorts, so I wear tight running shorts with it. Any short biker shorts will do, but I wear an affordable Amazon pair.

I’ve compiled my favorite golf clothes finds online, and I’ve also organized them below. So these are my favorites right now!
Golf tops for ladies
Golf feels like one area in life that I can wear something a little more bold. In fact, I wouldn’t typically pick a top with lots of mixed color or pattern for a normal outfit. But I tend to love them when playing golf! So these are a few of my favorite picks, scroll through to shop them all.
Golf bottoms for ladies
If I wear a more wild top, I stick to a more subtle bottom. Or vice versa! Scroll through to shop them!
Warmer weather bottoms
Colder weather bottoms
Golf Pullover and Jackets for ladies
Pullovers can make a golf outfit SO much cuter. If you like more simple golf looks, a jacket or pullover can be wear you add your pattern or a fun pop of color.
Golf shoes for ladies
Golf shoes are a great investment if you plan to play a lot. Get one pair that can work with most of your outfits (these are my pick). It’s also easier to get different tops than multiple pairs of shoes! I usually wear my Sam Edelman loafers to the golf course before changing into shoes. And I always size up half to a full size in my golf shoes like I do with my running shoes since feet expand with activity, especially if you’re walking vs. riding in a cart. My favorites EVER are True Linkswear.
Golf accessories for ladies
And hey, even if you have an off day on the golf course, you’ll feel better about if you feel cute, right? Right.
