2018 Update: We still stand by this advice on what to wear to a company golf outing — but you may also want to check out our more recent discussion on what to wear to a work-related golf event, or our entire post on what to wear to summer associate events.
What do you wear for a company golf outing? Reader C has a great question that we haven’t talked about in a while:
Would you consider doing a post on what to wear to the corporate golf outing? I have several to go to this year, in US and UK – and need some guidance.
Wowza. We talked about what to wear to a company golf scramble back in the early days of this blog (with a bit of help from a girlfriend of mine who is a golfer), but I thought we’d revisit the topic. I’m not a big golfer myself — readers, what would you wear to a golf outing?
Some thoughts from poking around the web:
- Check whether the golf course has a dress code. According to Golfsmith, some courses may require women to wear shirts with sleeves as well as longer shorts, and shoes may require a certain kind of cleats; these will both apply to a company golf outing as well.
- Avoid denim. Instead, think Bermuda shorts or skorts (6pm and Zappos have a surprising number of cute ones, including the skort pictured above: adidas Golf Fashion Performance Digital Plaid Skort ’13, now on sale for $45 at 6pm.)
- Finally, Gradspot has a good “beginner’s guide to golf etiquette,” including some lingo.
Ladies — particularly those of you who’ve been to more than one company golf outing — what is your advice?
