Best Women's Golf Clothes

Golf fashion has come on in leaps and bounds in the women's game over recent years, and the best women's golf clothes are now high in technology with plenty of variety of styles and colours to be had too.

From the catwalks to the fairways, brands follow trends so they can offer women versatile clothes that can be worn on and off the golf course.

Long gone is a simple pair of shorts or trousers matched with a polo shirt and plain sweater. Instead we have the best golf tops, base layers, short, sleeveless and long-sleeved shirts, capris, skorts, dresses, gilets, jackets, and so the list goes on. Even jumpsuits have made an appearance in the latest collections. 

Women's dress codes at most golf clubs require collard shirt or polo and a pair of non-denim trousers, shorts or a skirt.

Of course, many golf clubs have relaxed dress codes and it is worth checking with the club you're playing at if they have a more specific dress code before you go and play.

As for shoes, it's the same as men, so no boots, street shoes or sandals, and we'd recommend a specific golf shoe with good grip to help you out on course. Check out our guide on the best women's golf shoes for more examples.

Using technologically advanced fabrics, there are many different styles and colours on offer. Below we have put together a list of the best women's golf clothes to help more women perform at their best. 

We also recommend taking a look at some of our other buying guides such as the best golf accessories, the best women's golf bags, or if you are in the market for clubs, the best golf drivers for women.

Polo Shirts

It’s almost a hybrid of a shirt and sleeveless, which many athletic golfer will find very flattering on the arms and it will minimise the golfers tan somewhat. If you are larger in the arms then we’d recommend going up a size as the capped sleeve is well fitted.

This will make a great match with FootJoy's Interlock Skort and features the same levels comfort and practicality you've come to expect from a FootJoy garment. 

With plenty of colours to choose from we love the versatility of this polo offering.

Mid layers are hard to get right. But the FJ Full Zip Mid Layer has fast become one of our favourite garments.

It is one of the most comfortable mid layers we’ve tested. A marvellous mixture of extra protection and practicality makes it a very versatile top. Some mid layers make you too warm and this is not one of those - the thick material is deceptive as it wicks moisture really well.

It's pretty much a perfect women's mid layer option. We love the colours, styling, practicality and comfort and find it hard to fault in any meaningful way.

The Lorene jacket is available in navy, black, red, deep pink or blue and is principally designed for women to wear comfortably over a polo shirt or lightweight roll neck for ultimate warmth and breathability during chillier months.

The windproof and water-repellent fabric makes this jacket one of the lightest we have felt, it is silky soft to touch with horizontal stitched padding in the body.

It is impossible to fault the quality, style and performance of this jacket, and these qualities, combined with the fact that it will become a wardrobe staple for many years to come, justifies the expensive price tag.
