Date Dressing: What to Wear for an Afternoon on the Golf Course

Golf may not be our best sport, but we really love spending quality time on the green. Not only is it a fun outdoor activity, but you also get several hours in with that someone special — not to mention there are usually cocktails at the finish!

Being preppy is certainly an acquired trait and we’re here to help you out when tee time rolls around. A cable sweater, simple accessories (nothing too bold here), a fresh pair of oxfords and a stylish way to keep your hair and sun out of your eyes are complete essentials.

Possibly being one of the few locations where popping a collar is still acceptable, there’s a whole different dress code when it comes to an afternoon at a country club or even a driving range. That said, avoid looking overly frumpy or like a character from a 1980’s movie with opting for sleek alternatives that will keep you comfortable and looking cute.

We’ve comprised a slide show of a complete look to score that someone special and even a hole-in-one.

You'll catch your date doing sneak peaks while he lines up to putt while wearing this form-fitting sweater dress. It's short sleeved so you won't get too hot and the neckline is plunging, so you're not too covered up.

A simple link bracelet will stand the test of time and won't be too heavy on your wrist while holding some clubs.

A larger set of frames is necessary when peering into the distance to see where your ball landed (hopefully not just 10 feet in front of you).

Simple silver studs are timeless and catch the sun's rays perfectly.

Keep your hair off your face with a fun alternative to the typical golfer's visor: a metallic headband!

Oxfords are versatile, comfortable and sleek. Try a white pair for a preppy look.

A thin brown leather belt is just the thing to cinch in your waist and make the sweater dress a tad more form fitting, if needed.

Leave all the pesky extras at home and opt for a cute wristlet to hold your essentials.
