For men, a fashion statement on the golf course is wearing a mock turtleneck rather than a traditional polo shirt. Women, on the other hand, have many more choices for appropriate, but fashionable golf wear. Here is a selection of five golf shirts for women, from traditional golf polo shirts to updated contemporary styles.
Women’s Cap Sleeve Stretch Madras 2-Pocket Mesh Polo Shirt. This updated women’s golf shirt from Lands’ End has both the comfort and the looks to make it a winner on the links. Its cotton/spandex blend fabric provides coolness and a touch of stretch to allow a full range of movement. Button pockets on the chest, a madras collar and madras placket that coordinate with the solid body of this polo shirt, cap sleeves, and a slightly fitted silhouette make this shirt a stylish alternative to the traditional golf polo. It comes in spice brown, true navy and white. For more information and to purchase this shirt go to www.landsend.com/Cap Sleeve Polo.
Women’s Short Sleeve Pattern 2×2 Rib V-neck Henley Shirt. For a different look on the links, why not choose a striped Henley shirt? This one from Lands’ End is made of 100% cotton and has a v-neck that will keep you cool on even the hottest day. A four-button placket adds a touch of style, as does the multi-striped pattern in aqua sea/turquoise blue; pale jade/seafoam or pink coral/seaside pink. This Henley also comes in solids. For cooler days on the course, layer it with a plain tee. For more information and to purchase this shirt go to www.landsend.com/Henley V-Neck.
Ruffled Polo Shirt. This updated look from Talbots is for the woman who wants to show off her feminine, contemporary style on the golf course. It interprets the classic women’s golf polo shirt with a modern flair by shortening the sleeves, adding a seven-button ruffled placket, featuring a figure-friendly, fitted silhouette, and appearing in a rainbow of delicious colors with names like basil green, cabana pink, lemon chiffon and cantaloupe.
