When shopping for your next pair of golf shorts, you’ll want to consider inseam length, comfort and color. Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite pairs of shorts available in different lengths and colors that can vary based on your preference. However, they all have one thing in common — they’re super comfortable, lightweight and ideal for your next sunny round.

Traditional length (9″+)

We’ll start out with the most popular length among men — the nine inch inseam (give or take). This is the length you usually see out on the course. Based on your height, these will likely hit at the knee or just above.

Happy Medium Length (7″)

These shorts err on the trendier side and will show off a little bit more of your thigh. They’re not short enough to be considered short shorts, but they’re not too long either.

Rhone 7″ Commuter Short

These technical, sporty shorts are like goldilocks — not too long, not too short — the 7″ length is just right. They’re available in a wide array of colors and are wrinkle resistant!

The Shorties (6″)

These casual and trendy shorts will show off a few inches of thigh. If you’re a short king, go with this length for sure.

Chubbies Everywear Stretch Short (6″)

These shorts are on the shorter end of the spectrum, but trust us — that’s in! They have a drawstring waist for comfort that can be covered up with a belt if you’re playing somewhere a little more fancy.

Outdoor Voices Train 6″ Short

These uber-lightweight shorts are perfect for those hot, sticky days on the course. They don’t have belt loops, so they’re better for courses that allow an untucked shirt, but they have all kinds of pockets unlike most lightweight gym shorts, making them great for golf!
