Golf Girl photoI was perusing Golf for Women the other day and

wondered where are the women who wear the golf attire

modeled in women’s golf magazines? I’ve never seen

women, professionals included, who would dress in such

expensive and outrageous clothes!


It’s easy to spend money outfitting yourself for golf.

Hats, sunglasses, gloves, shirts, shorts, socks,

windbreakers and shoes all add up quickly, even if you

shop the sales. Add in equipment, bag and cart and you

have to play quite often to keep down the “CPU” – cost

per use.


One glossy advertisement showed a model in short

shorts (like that’s allowed on courses!) that cost

$275, the Tse golf shirt ($595), jacket by Ralph

Lauren ($185) and two-toned Utuser shoes ($425).


That comes up to $1480; I could never hope to get the

CPU on that outfit anywhere near a normal level in my

lifetime! Don’t get me wrong; I love clothes. I really

love shoes, but could never afford, or want, golf

shoes that cost more than the national budget of some

small countries.


Granted, you want comfortable shoes that don’t look

like something your grandmother would wear, but you

can easily find less expensive and fashionable shoes.


I have several really stylish golf outfits, none of

them brand name. If I totaled the cost of all of them

up it would not come up to the price of the Tse golf

shirt. Personally, I’d rather have several stylish

outfits and one outrageously priced one.


If I were to wear a $1480 outfit to play golf, I would

simply be too worried about getting dirty or

perspiring to play a decent round.
