To look your best for a sensational round on one of Thailand’s incredible golf courses it’s a good idea to stay in touch with this season’s essential outfits for an afternoon on the greens.
Thailand has long been making a name for itself when on the Asian golfing scene with world famous course designers making the absolute beast of the country’s varied tropical landscapes and dramatic terrain.
Islands like Phuket and Koh Samui are home to some superb courses, many of which enjoy stunning ocean views from the tees and greens. The year round warmth and lush surroundings make for an unforgettable golfing experience, which is why players from around the world put Thailand high on their score card.
To suit the breathtaking locations, apparel designers have also come up with an array of stylish but practical golf wear to complement any game. Below are few top clothing choices for a day of Thai fairways.
Selecting an outfit that is as practical as it is stylish is key when comes to golf so a moisture-wicking polo shirt is essential in Thailand’s tropical climate in order to avoid over heating on the green. If you’re inspired by Rickie Fowler’s fantastic play this year, why not be inspired by his style as well? A favourite is the Puma t-shirt worn by The Players Championship winner at the Deutshe Bank tournament earlier this year. The fresh blue and white detail brings a crisp, clean look to inspire a fresh approach to every hole.
For those planning to head to then 19th
for a few drinks and some dinner after the round, it’s a good idea to ensure your outfit is both practical and smart. Balancing function and form is something that Rickie Fowler also excels at, which is clear when you pair his classic polo (above) with the crisp white golf trousers he prefers, also by Puma. DryCell and 3D technology provide comfort and breathability, while added stretch will ensure you stay comfortable when you swing.
If you don’t fancy donning a pair of trousers in the tropical climes of Thailand, that’s fine, but it’s still important to look smart. You can easily pull off a sharp golfing look by selecting a tailored pair of shorts. The Lomeo-W print chino golf shorts by Hugo Boss are both striking and practical. The slim fit cut is particularly flattering, the turned up hem brings a chic, tailored look, and the funky print will infuse your whole ensemble with an extra edge.
If you’re going to be on your feet all day, you need a pair of shoes that is both comfortable and stylish. The Ecco Tour Hybrid Golf Shoes in bring a traditional, smart edge to any golfer’s outfit and ensures that he looks fantastic
on and off the course. The T-DTS outsole provides excellent grip, while the second skin leather lining guarantees breathability. The HydroMax treatment also means the shoes are water repellant, which is ideal for any slippery spots around the many water features on most tropical courses.
When you’re playing golf in Thailand, it is particularly important to protect yourself from strong direct sunlight. In addition to applying plenty of high factor sun cream, it’s also wise to wear a hat or cap. When it comes to the golf course, why not channel the style of World Number One Rory Mcilroy by completing your ensemble with a Nike cap. The Nike Tour Legacy golf cap in green spark will wick moisture away from your skin and add a cheerful pop of colour to your outfit at the same time.
