The dog days of summer are gone, and what’s left is windy, wet, and chilly weather on the East Coast. Golf is my summer hobby, emphasis on the summer. But with a goal to really work on my game this winter and earn a spot in one of the coveted GOLF.com tee times, my skorts, shorts, tank tops and polos just won’t cut it.
With my wardrobe severely lacking in this department, I need to pick up some fall and winter golf essentials so I won’t freeze on those cold mornings and windy days. With $200 burning a hole in my pocket, here’s what I’m buying to stay warm this season.
Nike Flex UV Victory pants (Black)
A pair of black pants serves as the perfect base for building a cute but functional fall outfit. These pants will go with everything I already own and will add a touch of warmth with their extra coverage.

Nike Flex UV Victory
Soft and sleek, the Nike Flex Victory Pants look polished on and off the course. Their pull-on, mid-rise design hugs and supports your waist throughout all 18 holes.
Puma 1/2 Zip Wind Jacket (Navy)
Navy is making a huge comeback this season, so this jacket is fashion forward and functional. It’s also roomy enough to layer a sweater, or (gasp!) a hoodie, underneath for extra warmth. The pockets are a great detail to keep my hands warm. For an added bonus, it’s on sale!
Puma 1/2 Zip Wind
The Puma 1/2 Zip Wind is the perfect jacket for a windy day. Its 4-way stretch fabric provides great flexibility and its wind-resistant technology tempers the bad weather. Additionally, its hand pockets and a relaxed easy fit with an elastic banded bottom offer a warm and comfortable feel on the course or off.
Adidas Statement Beanie (Black)
I have a small hat obsession, but in the winter I need something that provides a little more warmth. That’s where this neutral, but cute, beanie comes in. It’s neutral enough to wear with any outfit, on or off the course. And since I believe in the dollar-cost-average outlook on fashion purchases and I know this beanie will get a lot of wear, I’m adding it to my cart without regret.
The Statement beanie by Adidas provides style and comfort on or off the golf course. It sports a ribbed cuff, a woven Adidas label, 3 stripe detailing, and a pom top.
