BUY­ERS’ GUIDE

If you’re lucky enough to have ar­ranged a game on one of the UK’s rare sunny and hot days, a de­cent pair of golf shorts is a must. But be care­ful, as some golf clubs have a strict dress code, specif­i­cally the wear­ing of tai­lored shorts only. These are de­fined as “be­ing made of chi­nos­tyle ma­te­rial with a con­ven­tional waist­band, in­clud­ing belt loops, and con­ven­tional hip pock­ets (no cargo or patch pock­ets) worn with the hem ap­prox. 10cm above or be­low the knee.”

If you buy shorts from any of the golf-spe­cific brands fea­tured here, this shouldn’t be a prob­lem, but some found in high-street shops might not meet the cri­te­ria.

Just like golf trousers, golf shorts fea­ture a host of per­for­mance tech­nolo­gies within the ma­te­rial to keep you cool and com­fort­able. These in­clude mois­ture wick­ing and pro­tec­tion from the sun. Some even have an in­ner lin­ing that helps to keep your shirt tucked in – a very use­ful in­no­va­tion on hot days.

One fi­nal thought should go on your choice of socks. By wear­ing shorts your socks are on show, so make sure they match your out­fit (white is a safe bet) and be sure an­kle socks are al­lowed at your golf club if you go down that route.
