CODE GREEN

Work the Rules

5 safe and stylish bets for lady golfers.

Work the Rules

By Michele Laufik


In July 2017, the LPGA issued an updated dress code policy for its tour players. The new, tougher code included rules such as “plunging necklines are NOT allowed” and “leggings, unless under a skort or shorts, are NOT allowed” (with all caps for emphasis). The guidelines even extended to Pro-Am parties, where LPGA members are required to wear “appropriate attire” and no “cut-offs or jeans with holes.”


The policy adjustments definitely raised some eyebrows. Professional female players, though, are held to a different set of standards than everyday enthusiasts, who face slightly more lax rules at public courses and private clubs. In fact, some municipal golf courses don’t even have specific dress codes, but adhere to an unwritten rule book on attire, expecting players to simply dress appropriately.

Generally, a collared shirt with pants, shorts, or a skirt that hits no more than five to six inches above the knee is a safe bet. For higher-end courses, collared shirts are a must – no t-shirts – and denim is a big no-no. Tank tops, cut-offs, halter tops, sweatpants, gym shorts, and swimsuits are also usually not permitted.

If you’re unsure about a course’s dress code, call ahead so you’re not turned away. But to help you follow the standard rules, we’ve rounded up some pieces from Hedge that will look chic – and appropriate – on and off the golf course.




Darrow Boxpleat Golf Skirt

For those who prefer skirts to shorts, the 18-inch length of this A-line design should pass muster at any course. It also features flattering side pockets that are large enough to hold tennis balls and golf accessories, with holster loops for golf tees. Thanks to its springy polyester double-knit fabric, the skirt will keep its shape after a round of 18 holes.

Cassandra Polo Shirt

On this modern polo, the column of buttons jumps to the back. Barely-there cap sleeves and a round Peter Pan collar add extra-sweet touches. While some courses do allow collarless shirts (such as basic tees) as long as they have sleeves, a feminine polo like this is a safe and polished choice.







Tatum Tea Skirt

This “suitable” pencil skirt made of super-stretchy sweatshirt fabric is the perfect example of mixing business and pleasure. It’s comfortable, yet cool, with ribbon detailing down the side and a scorecard-size pocket in the back.

Stanton Racerback Shirt

Racerbacks need to sport a collar in order to get the A-OK from most courses. This regulation-ready piece is an updated take on a classic sleeveless button-down. Pique fabric offers a bit of give, and feminine darting eliminates a boxy silhouette.





Dune Racerback Dress With Collar

The Peter Pan collar on this racerback dress adheres to common attire regulations (racerback tops should have a mock or regular collar) without adding bulk. Its modest length plays by the rules, too. The dress also features motion-friendly armholes for big swings, a flattering fitted waist, holsters for golf tees, and hidden pockets.
