Valentine’s Day Gifts For Golfers

 

 

It’s almost February, so you know what that means…LEAP YEAR DAY!  Yes, I know that’s not really a thing, and this post is obviously going to be about Valentine’s Day, but I think you should buy all of your loved ones Leap Year gifts, claim you do it every four years year, and then act really hurt when they don’t have anything for you.

But I digress.  We’re talking about Valentine’s Day and possibly golf. 

I think of myself as being pretty good at giving gifts. I listen to what people are interested in and try to get them something that at least tangentially has to do with the their hobbies. And for those relatives who don’t really seem to be on the family tree and only show up for gift giving holidays, I am a big fan of gift cards.

Maybe you’re good at giving gifts.  Or maybe you’re not.  Either way , if your significant other (or mother, or sister, or friend, or whoever your Valentine is this year)is a golfer, consider yourself lucky, at least you have a jumping off point.  However,  you may be at the point in your relationship where you have given every book on golfing, scoured the earth for every golf themed piece of jewelry, and tried really hard to find heart-shaped golf ball until you realized that that just wouldn’t work as balls have to be circular.

So to help you in your search for the perfect Valentine’s Day Golf gift, please look through our Women’s Golf Caps.  We have lots of fun pink caps for Valentine ’s Day!  

Tell us about your Valentine’s Day plans.  Do they involve golf or the more traditional dinner rout?

Women’s Golf Apparel Has Come A Long Way

Today Women’s Golf Accessories Are Fashionable And Fun


Women’s golf apparel and golf accessories have changed dramatically from Babe Didrikson Zaharias’ flat crushed golf hat worn years ago. Today, women’s golf apparel and accessories are fashionable, flirty, and fun to wear.

Women have been playing golf for as long as five hundred years, with Mary, Queen of Scots, having been recorded in history as one of the earliest female golf enthusiasts. While we can only conjecture as to how the earliest women golfers dressed, we do know that women’s golf apparel has evolved quite a bit even over the past seventy years or so when women golfers began to capture the nation’s attention by putting an end to the image of golf as a private preserve for men in the United States.

If pioneer golfer Babe Didrikson Zaharias were to return to a professional or amateur golf tournament of today, she would be completely out of place as far as golf apparel is concerned. Her crushed and flat golf cap has now been replaced by women’s golf hats of all patterns and descriptions, that are similar in shape and appearance to baseball caps and far more comfortable than any women’s hats of her era. Admittedly, and despite her nickname, this multi-talented athlete of old actually eschewed femininity in her behavior and dress, but even a more conformist female golfer would have worn a cap that hardly screamed femininity or fashion. Even her more conformist contemporary, Patty Berg, was photographed wearing a beret, which, while perhaps more feminine than Zaharias’s almost military looking cap, hardly scored much in terms of practicality as it did little to shield her from the sun. Other styles of women’s golf hats from the earliest era of women’s professional golf included shapeless sun hats, again a far cry from the fashionable, attractive and practical women’s golf hats and visors worn by professionals and amateurs today. As for other aspects of women’s golf apparel, it was based around a skirt or dress and often included a cardigan sweater, and it was only during the 1960’s when, following street hemline trends, shorter skirts began to appear on the golf course.

It was indeed during the 1960’s and 1970’s that today’s unmistakably feminine colors and practical, comfortable styles of women’s golf apparel and golf accessories began to appear on golf courses. Nancy Lopez was known for sporting an easily recognizable red golf visor, which while wider and not as refined as today’s visors, was certainly a far cry from the hats of two decades earlier, to say nothing of the flowered visors that were worn by British golfers at the beginning of the 1900’s (such flowered visors were featured by the renowned Thomas Burberry, whose signature plaid began its appearance on the golf course). Golf shorts would soon become a staple of women’s golf apparel, and women’s golf accessories would retain their femininity while reflecting the trend toward female equality and self-expression that manifested itself in all aspects of a woman’s life, from music and fashion to career and education, during that exciting and groundbreaking era.

The women’s golf apparel of today is fashionable and reflects the image of golf as a pastime for modern and trendy women. It mirrors trends of comfort and femininity for sports apparel in general, with women’s golf hats and women’s golf visors now available in a range of patterns that are made available by major sporting goods manufacturers as well as by specialty golf hats and visors manufacturers and retailers. For today’s women, golf apparel can easily be worn while relaxing after a game, or while exercising to get ready for an afternoon of golf. It is comfortably feminine in an athletic way, and has indeed come a long way from the often restricting golf skirts and shapeless women’s golf hats of old.
