The Guide to a Complete Golf Outfit
"You decide what you are, what you want to express, by the way you dress" - Giovanni Versace*
"People will stare. Make it worth their while" - Harry Winston**
"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak" —Rachel Zoe***
As a few top style icons have expressed through the quotes above, style is your first impression. Before you step foot on the golf course, before you take the first swing - or the 100th! - you have already mentally partaken in the game.
Golf is one of the most mentally challenging sports. Preparing for successful golf by getting into the right mindset starts with getting into the right outfit.
At Golftini, we believe that when you look your best, you feel your best; when you feel your best, you play your best. Your outfit selection is the first choice you can make of the day to set yourself up for confidence and positivity.
Owner and designer, Susan Hess, started Golftini when she was taking up the game in her adult life and could not find a fashionable golf outfit. Susan, a firm believer in dressing for success, says "I make a conscious effort to be fashionable in all other areas of my life, it's part of who I am, so why would this be any different on the golf course?"
Turns out, many women feel the same.
So, Susan set out to bridge the gap between golf and fashion. She first started with printed and patterned skorts, which are the core of the company. Over the years, a few skorts became a full collection, with the addition of polos, pants, jackets, vests, and ponchos for a complete on-trend outfit for on and off the golf course.
What goes into a complete outfit? We think we may have figured this one out!
Like we said, you play your best when you feel and look your best. Golftini trend forecasts in every area of fashion, from runway to home decor, when designing our exclusive, one-of-a-kind prints.
Over the last 13 years, Golftini has perfected its sizing. We aren’t saying this was easy, but it was worth it. Women sizing is tough, especially when trying to meet in the middle between athletic sizing and boutique sizing. After a few rounds of trial and error, and a ton of helpful customer feedback and insight, we are more confident than ever with our fit. Golftini sizes are XXS-XXL and 00-16. We offer a variety of lengths and styles to ensure there is something for everyone!
3. Fabrics & Styles
Golftini’s exclusively designed fabrics range from athletic tech to structured stretch cotton. The styles are created to fit any body type. For example, the Pull-On Tech Skorts are comfortable, lightweight, and easy-to-wear, as they are flexible with a wide waistband. The Performance fabric looks like cotton, but acts and feels like tech. Features such as loose fitted shorts underneath, super deep pockets, tee pocket, and back pockets give our fashionable skorts true functionality.
4. Ability to Make it Your Own
Give Golftini your own style and flare, whatever that may be! We design our clothing as a base for you, and want outfit creation to be attainable for everyone. Despite your outfit skills, you are guaranteed to feel complete. Not so outfit savvy? All of our colors are dyed to match, so no matter what pieces you put together, they will look great! Love creating outfits? The sky's the limit! All Golftini tops move forward with each collection, so the options are truly endless. A single skort can be paired with almost all tops. We love layering with jackets in cooler seasons, and our lightweight summer vests in any weather.
Golftini is a one stop shop. We have teamed up with trusted partners to offer our customers the accessories we love the most.
We always say “fashion first!”, but this does fall short to safety. That's why all of our tops have UPF 30+ sun protection woven into the fabric. We also sell hats, visors, and SKIN Sunscreen, a mineral-based sun lotion formulated specifically for golfers, on our site.
For those who seek guidance and expert advice in choosing their next golf outfit, we offer personal styling appointments so our customers can shop over the phone with a one-on-one consultation, ensuring you find the perfect, complete outfit. We even offer free exchanges! In addition, we put our lookbook on our site as a visual outfit guide, and have a blog full of fashion and golf tips!
We release two full collections per year, each of which embodies a fun, relatable theme that is easily identified once discovering the names of the new products which fall under the collection. On-brand with our company, the themes are selected with the intention of being light hearted, trendy, and feminine - and always resonating with our customers. This season is the Iconic Collection, featuring skort names like Jackie O., Madonna, Elvis, and Betty Boop! The name of each skort can be found inside the waistband and serves as a reminder that golf - and life! - are meant to be enjoyed. We also offer a Loyalty Points Program called Party Points as a fun way to give back to our customers!
