Here’s how to dress to impress at a formal golf clubhouse

Members Only Style

By Michele Laufik

When you’re schmoozing with other members at a private clubhouse, shorts and a tee just won’t cut it. Harkening back to the idea of golf as “a gentleman's sport,” many exclusive golf courses follow some type of dress code (e.g. shorts and jeans are a big no-no). And since you don’t want to tee off on the wrong foot because of your too-casual attire, you’d be wise to check out these items that fit into a member’s-only lifestyle without feeling too stodgy.


Shoe In
This elegant leather loafer from Jack Erwin doesn’t feature a bunch of bells, whistles, or tassels. The shoe’s streamlined, minimalist design means it can easily be paired with any type of pant. And thanks to the refined hand-stitched detailing, it’s dressier than most casual loafers. 

Burgundy English Dots

Sock It to Me
Slip on this pair of JL The Brand socks to add a slight pop of color and a subtle touch of whimsy to your attire. The classic light gray dotted pattern isn’t hokey (you can save that crazy pair of socks for a golf trip with your buddies), and it won’t overpower a traditional shoe-and-pant combo. Plus, the socks are made from high-quality cotton and reach up to mid-calf or higher, so you won’t have to worry about flashing any flesh as your pants hike up when you take a seat.

Get a Leg Up
If you’re gonna hang out in a high-end clubhouse setting, ditch the shorts (and the blue jeans) for Rhone’s Commuter Pant. Thanks to the stretch fabric, this pair is just as comfy as your go-to khaki shorts yet is more polished and appropriate for a members-only course. There’s also a zippered back pocket where you can secure your valuables, as well as one specially designed to store your phone. This pant also boasts an articulated knee, so you’ll be able to bend easily and walk the grounds with confidence.

Oatmeal Donegal Cardigan Sweater

Sweater Weather
This cozy cardigan from DIBI is a more refined outerwear alternative than the usual windbreaker jacket. Made from a wool-polyester blend, the sweater features a traditional Donegal weave (named after the county in Ireland where the style was made famous) in an oatmeal shade that is the perfect neutral color choice. In addition to staying warm while playing a round, you can also totally rock this item around the house on the weekends. 

Royal Blue & Navy Patterned Scarf

Neck of the Woods
Take inspiration from English heritage style and wrap this DIBI scarf around your neck. Not only will it fight back any chill in the air, but it will also instantly and easily add a luxe finish to any outfit. Featuring a large checkerboard pattern in navy and light gray with a contrasting accent pattern in royal blue, this scarf is made from a polyester-viscose blend that mimics the feel of soft cashmere.

XH2O Solid Tech Pants

A Powerful Pair
These wrinkle-resistant pants from Bobby Jones might look like another pair of been-there-done-that khakis, but they’re actually an undercover wonder. Designed to wick away moisture, these pants are also equipped with antibacterial properties and UPF protection for built-in sunscreen. And even though they boast high-tech features, they still maintain a classic look that fits in at any old-school country club.

Shawl Collar Cardigan Sweater

Head of the Class 
This shawl-collar cardigan from Rule 18 takes its cues from Ivy League campus life and features the brand’s “Be the Better Man” varsity-style crest. Made of soft rib-knit Victoria wool, the two-pocketed navy sweater with button closures serves as a gentlemanly but not overly stuffy topper to a button-down.
