The best ladies golf shoe for the summer

I bought these last year and wanted to share it with you.  This is a great pair of golf shoes because they are lightweight and you can throw them in the washing machine when they get dirty.  And, if you are like me…you don’t need to wear socks.

– It’s not ladies golf clothing…but what a great idea!

I hate loosing my golf balls!

I’ve had rounds where I lost count due to water and trees and wetlands.  I found these and just love them.  Not only can you find them in the rough, but you can see them in flight.

What a way to spend the afternoon.


– Welcome to Golf Clothing for Ladies of all ages

I’ve started this site because I love the game of golf.


– Golf Shoes

My favorite pair of golf shoes!?

In case you didn’t know, metal cleats are now forbidden on 99% of all golf courses.  This was done because of the damage they caused on the greens.   We now have plastic cleats on golf shoes.

I’ve always struggled with golf shoes…my toes go to sleep when I wear them.  So, I tried golf sandals as an option,  There are many different styles of golf sandals and the only potential issue wearing them is hitting out of the sand (you need to take them off and shake the sand out of the shoe).  The last pair of shoes I wore were lightweight and meshed…it seemed to solve my problems.  If you’re not sure what style to buy, look at your current inventory of shoes for your preference in comfort.

If you are a new golfer, I would suggest wearing your sneakers/tennis shoes.  Unless the ground is wet, a cleat isn’t really necessary or helpful, in my opinion.  I’ve even been seen golfing without shoes!


– Comfort is the Key

Golf can be challenging for any lady so I highly recommend that whatever you wear, make sure it is comfortable.  I would also like to add appropriate!  Lately I’ve seen a lot of clothing at the course and driving range that is not appropriate for the game.  Remember, when you are golfing, you don’t want to be pulling and tugging at your clothes.

My list of No No’s:

Short that are way too short; if you can’t bend over without showing too much, don’t wear them on the course

Tank tops

Jeans of course (any color of jeans)

Tee shirts

Tight skirts and little too short!

Believe me, I’m not a prude!  The game of golf has always had a etiquette of clothing.  It has relaxed some but the basics are still there:  collared shirts and you skort/skirt/short should have at least a 3 inch inseam.  Be sure that you ‘bottom’ has deep pockets for your tees, balls, ball mark repairer, and ball marker.  I’ve bought cute bottoms and found that they didn’t work on the course because of the pockets…my only option was my bra for storage!!


– My Golf Story

Hi, I’m Sue and would like to tell you about golf and me.

I remember growing up that Dad would occasionally go golfing with a client from work.  It was an all day, and most of the night event.  When I was 14, Mom decided to take up the game and have some fun with Dad.  It sounded good to me, so I bought a used set of clubs and learned alongside Mom.  Dad would take us out in the back yard and teach us how to chip.  We even trained our dog to fetch the golf balls and save us all that extra leg work.  I spent hours with Dad, just the two of us (I am the youngest of 4 and the only one who took up the game).  I played around with golf in the backyard, but I really didn’t have any other options.  About the time I was 16, Mom and Dad took me to a course and we played.  It was frustrating but I didn’t care…I was learning and I actually had a few good shots.  Everything I learned about the game, I learned from them.  Some of my best memories of my mid teens is golfing with my folks.

Over the years, I would go out once or twice a year.  It wasn’t until I married a golfer/hacker that I began to play at least once a month.  Eventually, we joined a 9 hole league with friends and played weekly.  It was golf, but in hindsight, it was more about laughter, friendship, and memories.  When I was 41, we moved to Florida from Ohio and our first home was on a golf course.  We had high expectations of golfing more and more.  Our reality was 1.  Money was tight and a round of golf would cost us about $100  2.  Work got in the way of finding the time to golf and 3.  My husband and I grew apart and divorced.

I found a friend who golfed and we starting playing once a week.  You will find that in order to really improve your game, once a week probably won’t be enough.  We played the courses with the lowest cost and had a blast.  You learn a lot about a person when you golf with them,,,temperament being one of the biggest!

I met Van in January, 2010, at our local Moose Lodge.  That’s another story…..  Anyway, I told him I loved the game and after 3 months he ‘rejuvenated’ his interest (he hadn’t played in 10 years because of a back issue).  We married 6 months later, joined one of our local courses a year later, and now we play 3 to 4 times a week.

I am lucky that my husband and I have the same interests and are best friends.

I love that game of golf and with this blog, hope to inspire, help, and laugh with you!
