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 when I was going to the country club with Tommy, I knew that it had a dress code, so I bought a tennis skirt from Athleta 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 of fore (haha). We’ve played in Pinehurst, in Boone, in Utah, in California and even played on our babymoon at Primland. 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 a couple times a month (well, that was my goal before I had Charles — now I’m not playing golf quite as often), either with Tommy or with a friend. It’s crazy to think that most days I don’t see people other than my family and my nanny, so having something on the calendar helps me maintain some social skills.

What to Wear Golfing – Cute Options for Women

And, of course, another perk of golfing is the cute clothes I get to wear. One of the very common questions I hear is what to wear golding – especially cute options for women. Thankfully, there are definitely a lot more options these days that aren’t frumpy, ill-fitting and oversized like so many ladies’ golf clothes of the past. A few brands like Byrdie Golf Social Wear, Tuckernuck and Renwick have started selling cute, feminine, flattering options.

So today, I’m sharing some cute golf clothes for the warm weather ahead! A bonus is that many of these items are cute enough to wear as part of athleisure outfits too so they get worn off the course as well.

My Favorite Cute Golf Clothes for Women


Dresses are my favorite thing to wear for golf. I appreciate that it’s only one item but creates an entire outfit, and I feel cute for the rest of the day after my round. If I’m wearing a collared shirt to a golf round, I’ll likely change out of it for the rest of my day, but that’s not the case when I wear a golf dress. In fact, I find that I’ll wear golf dresses even on days when I’m not playing because they make such cute athleisure looks! Here are a few of my favorite golf dresses.

Amazon Collared Golf Dress

This $35 golf dress meets all of my standards for a feminine golf outfit. First, it’s collared, and most golf courses that I’ve been to require collars, even for ladies. Second, it comes with shorts to pair with it underneath. I like that the shorts aren’t built into the dress since that makes restroom breaks difficult. Third, it comes in a handful of cute colors. The fit isn’t tight, but it’s also not baggy. I feel totally appropriate in the clubhouse as well as on the course.

When I bought this, small was their smallest size, so that’s what I have. Now that they carry XS, I’ll be ordering another color in that size since it’ll fit me just a little bit better.

Byrdie Social Wear Short Sleeve Hayden Dress

This green gingham golf dress looks like it should be worn to the Masters, doesn’t it. This brand is much more expensive than some golf clothes you can find on Amazon or at Dick’s Sporting Goods, but the styles are so good and unique. I love that this dress buttons down the front, making it nursing-friendly. And, the cute contrasting floral shorts are included. Button the dress all the way down, or wear it open at the bottom to show off the shorts.

Another winning feature: this dress has UPF 30+ built-in.

Speaking of the Masters, I have a blog post dedicated to what to wear there if you get to go this spring.

Tuckernuck Lisbon Piped Sterling Tennis Dress

Tuckernuck has their own line of activewear, and this Lisbon Piped Sterling Tennis Dress is the perfect option for golf or tennis. I love the classic relaxed fit with the feminine drop skirt. It’s polished, but easy to throw on over a sports bra and biker shorts.

Athleta Brooklyn Utility Romper

I’m including rompers in the dresses section since they serve the same purpose: one piece but an entire outfit. I love this Brooklyn Utility Romper from Athleta because it can be worn on and off the course. The style is feminine but sporty, the collar could probably be considered appropriate for most courses, and the quality has to be good since it’s from Athleta.

You could style this romper with a colorful golf hat and cute golf shoes!

Everyday Cloudful™ Air Fabric Dress

My Content Manager has three dresses from Halara and tells me all the time that the quality is SO good for the price! I’ve personally never ordered from Halara, but I plan to after seeing their cute golf dresses. This Everyday Cloudful Air Fabric Dress is VERY similar to the dress above from Lilly Pulitzer, but without the racer back (and large price tag).

Lily Pulitzer UPF 50+ Luxletic Cayo Costa Dress

I love a hot pink dress, and this golf dress from Lily Pulitzer is right up my alley. The striped collar, shirt dress fit, and UPF protection (50+!!) are the makings of a must-have golf dress.

Amazon Collared Short Sleeve Golf Dress

I wanted to include one more affordable golf dress from Amazon, and this time with sleeves. Not everyone is a fan of sleeveless dresses, and this is a perfect alternative. It comes in a ton of colors and has a really cute ruffled skirt. I also love that it has UPF 50+  built into it as well.

Golf Skirts

The next most worn items in my golf attire roundup are skirts (or actually, skorts). I have two favorites that I own, and I’ve included a few others I’m eyeing as well.

Amazon Pleated Golf Skirt

I wear this Amazon pleated skirt for errands even more often than for golf! I have the light pink color and it’s too cute to only save for the course. I love the length (not too short), the wide waistband, and the fact that it can get sweaty and you can’t tell.

SPANX Get Moving Skort

I am OBSESSED with this. 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. I wear an XS in this skirt, and you’ll see it styled below in a handful of photos.

SPANX Sunshine Skort

This Sunshine skort is a great option if you prefer shorts to skirts, but want to feel a little more feminine out on the course! The front wraps like a skirt, but the back is obviously shorts, which feels fun and unique. I will sing SPANX’s praises all day, so I feel confident you’d love this if you’re eyeing it.

PGA TOUR Women’s Airflux Skort

The PGA TOUR Women’s Airflux Skort is a great option if you prefer to stick to classic, simple styles without all of the frills. It’s traditional, flattering and definitely long enough! The price tag is also unbeatable, and you can choose from over 15 colors. It also has side pockets!

Tuckernuck Lisbon Stripe 14 Inch Pique Elena Tennis Skirt

This is the skirt version of the golf dress I included above. I love the blue stripe details, and I also love that it’s white, so you could wear so many different tops with it.

Golf Tops

Like I mentioned above, I prefer to wear tops and dresses with collars since that’s what most of our courses require. And even when a course doesn’t require ladies to wear collars, I feel more appropriate in one. If you’re new to golf and working on building out some outfits, I’d recommend just one good white collared shirt. It can be sleeveless or not, but I truly think you can get buy with just one.

Over time, you may want to get a few in other colors, some with sleeves, some without, and maybe a few fun patterned tops, but I prefer to spend my money on cute skorts to pair with one white top. While it’s pricey, the best one I’ve ever found is from Peter Millar (linked below). They’re known for their mens golf wear, but they also make women’s, and the quality and fit is unmatched.

Peter Millar Sleeveless Polo

This sleeveless Peter Millar polo is my #1 pick for summer golf. It comes in a zippered version too which I also love. The material is best in class. You will not regret splurging on this top if you plan to play golf more than just once! I wear an XS in Peter Millar tops.

Peter Millar Short-Sleeve Polo

This is the short sleeved version of the top above, if you prefer a little shoulder coverage. You can’t go wrong with either. I wear an XS in Peter Millar tops.

Amazon White Polo Shirt

If you know you’ll only play golf once or twice, then this Amazon polo may be your best bet. I can’t speak to the quality, but it’s a good budget option that’ll work for a few rounds. The reviews look good, it comes in a bunch of colors, and it has Prime shipping. Win, win, win!

Ladies Golf Shoes

Golf shoes are a great investment if you plan to play a lot. Get one pair that can work with most of your outfits. 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 golf 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. I’ve tried seven different pairs of golf shoes over the years and have finally found the best one the market. Im sharing those, along with a few cute pairs I’ve seen recently, in case you’re more partial to those.

True LinksWear golf shoes

These are far and away the cutest AND the most comfortable golf shoes I’ve owned. Other golf shoes pinched my toes, made my plantar fasciitis act up and also 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.

Allbirds Golf Dashers

I didn’t know Allbirds made golf shoes until I was updating this post! I used to have a pair of their Tree Runners and MAN they were comfortable.

Golf accessories for ladies

A cute visor or hat will complete your golf look. I highly recommend getting a golf hat with a ladies fit, since it will look and feel so much better on your head. Unisex or men’s hats typically sit low on the crown of your head and may have to go over your ears, which is never ideal. And also make sure to grab some sunglasses too! This visor is my absolute favorite for golfing so if you get just one, invest in this!

I also think a belt bag of some kind is a nice accessory for golf. I don’t take my entire purse with me, but I like to have my phone, keys, cardholder, and a lipgloss on me while I’m in the golf cart. This Byrdie Social Wear belt bag is a collaboration with J.Lowery (one of my favorite bag brands) and it’s the perfect golf accessory. And if you’re headed to the Masters, it’s perfect since it meets the small bag requirement!

And hey, even if you have an off day on the golf course, you’ll feel better about if you feel cute, right? Right.
