We’ve heard this story before. Lady takes up golf. Likes the sport and gets serious about it. Meets new friends. Can’t find a thing to wear. Starts golf apparel company. Becomes very successful.
Ok, we all know it doesn’t always end that way, but I think it’s safe to say that for Susan Hess and her Golftini Apparel Company, the future’s so bright, she better wear shades!
Golftini’s philosophy is that when you look your best, you feel your best, and when you feel your best, you play your best. Hess herself is a firm believer in dressing for success, in fact she says that she makes a conscious effort to be fashionable in all other areas of her life so why would she do anything different on the golf course?
As she started out to bridge the gap between golf and fashion, Hess started with printed and patterned skorts, which are still the company’s bread and butter. As things progressed, polos, pants, jackets, vests, ponchos and a few skorts were added, the end result was a full collection of on-trend outfits suitable both on and off the golf course.
With the Spring 2019 release of their Fun and Games Collection, Golftini is dialing things back a notch. The new collection gets old school with youthful and nostalgic product names, all with a trendy Golftini spin. Each piece is designed in a classic pattern, but with unique, modern details.
The new Jump Rope Stretch Cotton Skort is as fashionable as it is comfortable. The 97% Cotton/3% Spandex fabric holds its shape perfectly, so you’ll look just as good after your swing as you did walking up to the tee. The skort features a flat front, side zipper, two deep side pockets and a rear scorecard pocket. The crisp navy and white medallion pattern has a scalloped “rope” along the bottom hem, making it the perfect garment for whatever the day has in store. The Jump Rope Stretch Cotton Skort is available in two lengths: Standard (17.5”) and Long (19”). It’s available in sizes 00 – 16. Retail price is $128.
One look at Golftini’s Hopscotch Performance Skort and you’ll instantly be taken back to the game you played as a child. The vibrant plaid print is flattering for any body type and is made with a lightweight moisture-wicking fabric that offers extreme comfort and full range of motion. Loose-fitting white shorties have been sewn in underneath. The flat front style has a side zipper and side slits with black grosgrain ribbon trim detail on the sides, and the blue, hot pink and navy color combination looks great. Two deep side pockets keep your golf goodies safe and secure and the back pocket can handle just about any size scorecard. The Hopscotch Skort is available in sizes 00 – 16 and retails for $120.
Golftini’s Twister Tech Skort has a tie-dye design that may just have you flashing back! This pull-on tech skort is made with a lightweight, moisture-wicking stretch fabric, making it both comfortable and unique.

Golftini offers several polos that are not only high tech but look good and are extremely comfortable. The company offers a variety of stylish tops that coordinate well with their printed skorts. The new Elbow Polohas a slimming fit and elbow length sleeves and a side slit with matching ribbon trim. A UPF 30+ sun protection finish has been sewn into the fabric. The Peter Pan collar and 4-button, 9” placket with coordinating color enamel buttons gives this polo a classic golf look. There’s a Golftini logo on the lower left hem.

Golf is one of the most mentally challenging sports there is. For many, preparing for a successful round of golf means getting into the right mindset and starts with donning the right outfit. If you’re not a morning person, you might want to make your selection the night before!
