You think its hard dressing for a night out until you enter a golf course! Most golf courses have strict guidelines on appropriate golf wear, many clubs feel shorts on a golf course are not accepted; and if they are, they have to be tailored and long, some clubs have to have long socks worn with shorts to only show a part of the knee cap. If a shirt is worn it has to have a collar not a roll neck also Denim is a big no no.
Footwear trainers again used to be a big no no but now most spikes are designed to be more fashionable and look like trainers. Most clubs require plastic cleats these days rather than metal spikes as these leave less indent on the green.
History of Golf Styles
Golf has a tradition of producing some of the best and worst dresses athletes in the sporting world. Whilst golf is recognised to be one of the most elegant sports, many golfers seem to be adamant to make the most outrageous fashion statements.
Early golfers in the 1700-1900’s made no effort when stepping onto the course. Wearing kilts and animal skins, this is mainly due to the Scottish Shepard’s who created the event.
By the 1920’s golfers have amended their wardrobes to formal jackets and ties. Unfortunately trousers were still worn tucked into socks.
Thankfully companies like Nike were introduced into the golfing world in the 1990’s. Bringing well cut polos and baseball caps.
