Ladies Golf Clothing

For lady golfers, the wardrobe is a big part of playing golf. Almost all lady golfers play for fun in the same way that they go shopping, so the wardrobe is vital.

How things have changed and how exciting clothes have become over the last few years. If there is an open or a match or even a coffee morning, ladies tell me part of the excitement is what they are going to wear. Here are a few thoughts from our research.

First, you want to be comfortable, so the weather plays a large part in this decision. If it’s a lovely sunny day and the temperature is hot, GREAT!! Out come the little skorts or the shorts if preferred. Color is very important depending on your mood. You need at least two to three pairs of a bright color such as pinks, checks, etc., even white if you’re wearing a bright tee shirt. These colors all relate to a confident, fun mood, or if your mood is calmer or more serious, you may choose a more subtle shade, such as the taupes, creams, grays, etc. Whatever you decide, it all has to have that matching tee shirt, so you will need various colors. And you will need a slip over or a chi lay; all has to match of course, even down to the socks. You may also need a couple of colors when it comes to the visor.

Then we have those days which are typical to our summer climate. The forecast could be rain, a bit of a nippy wind, but still quite warm. So out come the cut offs or Capri pants perfect for this kind of weather. Again you will need a few various colors to suit your mood. But when packing your golf bag for the day ahead, you will need a pullover, again making sure it all matches. Not forgetting the all important waterproofs, shower proof jacket and rain hat.

There are so many choices in golf clothes now. When visiting your local golf shop it can be so much fun trying on all the various outfits, also seeing the vast range of accessories like umbrellas, gloves, golf bags; the list is endless. And the great thing with golf clothes is that it caters to all ages, shapes and sizes. So if you love your clothes as much as I do, your golf wardrobe can be bulging or modest, but great fun – a bit like the game itself.

Keeping Dry on the Course

Once a golfer reaches a certain level of skill, they should be looking to maximise their performance however they can. Many golfers do not place great importance on their golf clothing, which is a mistake. Imagine the conditions – it’s cold and windy, with some light drizzle and yet it is still sunny making it too hot for coats, yet traditional wind stoppers are not warm enough. Would the discomfort this brings hamper your game? What will help in this situation?

Introducing Galvin Green Golf Clothing

Galvin Green is one of the most recognisable names in golf clothing and golf waterproofs. Their reputation is well deserved with a history of providing top quality and stylish golf clothing for men, women and children.

Along with their golf clothing ranges, Galvin Green produce highly praised golf waterproofs and wind stoppers – again for gents, ladies and kids. Their waterproof clothing range can be relied upon to provide the very best protection from the elements. Featuring Gore-Tex technology, which along with carefully structured layers of tough fabric; make the most highly breathable rain wear on the market today.

How does the wind proof range keep you dry but cool? Each jacket contains a micro-porous material called Polytetraflourethylene (PTFE) within the inner layer which allows moisture from the skin to evaporate, transporting with it excess heat from the skin. The clever part is that these pores are too small to allow water in, yet big enough to allow rising water vapour out, hence the term breathable waterproofing.

Galvin Green is popular amongst golfers around the world, particularly in the colder climates of northern European countries. A 2009 survey showed nearly half of all golfers would choose Galvin Green when looking for waterproofs or rain wear – proof if ever it were needed that their clothing delivers on its promises. Further, ‘National Club Golfer’ and ‘Lady Golfer’ have named the waterproofs range ‘Best on Test’.
