How to rock a golf skort in 3 lengths: mini, mid-thigh and knee-length


Mini, mid-thigh or knee-length — what's your preference?

When the weather is warm enough, I wear golf skorts pretty much exclusively. Shorts are great, don’t get me wrong — as an Arizonan, they’re a ubiquitous staple in my everyday, off-course wardrobe. But on the course, skorts are my jam. They’re stretchy, comfortable, and offer the femininity of a skirt plus the functionality of shorts. A win-win!

If you love skorts like me, you’ve you’ve likely noticed that ultra-short skorts are all the rage these days. While I never thought of myself as the mini-type, a recent sample from Lija gave me a fresh perspective. Minis can be super flattering — and they can double as workout-wear when you’re not playing a round.

Regardless of your length preferences, skort-lovers now have plenty of options. Check out some of my favorites below, in three lengths — mini, mid-thigh and knee-length — and how to rock them.


This Lija mini is absolutely adorable, and I love the fresh print! While many courses have relaxed their dress codes in recent years, a 13-inch length may be too short for some facilities, so make sure to check if you’re unsure. But I love the versatility of this skort. From the gym to the tennis court to the golf course, this skort does it all, with style. If I’m going to sport a super-short length, I like to pair it with something a bit more conservative on top, like a long-sleeve sunshirt.

Lija Tashi Skort

This 13″ skort curves up at the side seam for a peek at the undershorts. Two small tucks at the front and back of the waistband to add a little volume. The knit fabric waistband and undershorts provide stretch and comfort.

Puma Long Sleeve Sun Crew

The Womens Long Sleeve Sun Crew is the perfect, lightweight piece to keep you warm and protected from the sun on those brisk fall days. dryCELL Technology wicks sweat, keeping you cool and comfortable when the course heats up or the temperature drops.


I’m 5’4″ — not very tall! — so 16-17 inches is a comfortable length for me, and the length at which you’ll find the majority of skorts on the market. At my height, the hemline hits about two-three inches above the knee, depending on how high you like the skort to sit at the waist. A few extra inches makes a big difference in terms of coverage, and this length still feels sporty. When pairing tops, I feel like pretty much anything goes — full sleeves, sleeveless, racerback — all fair game! With a printed skort like the one below, I like to go with a solid color on top.

This length — about 18-inches — is the most conservative of the three. It’s nice to have a longer skort on hand in case you do run into a course that has a stricter dress code. This particular Greg Norman selection is also great because detail on the hem adds another quarter inch of length. In terms of pairing this skort, I think the more coverage you have on bottom, the more you can be a bit more daring up top. I like to pair longer lengths with sleeveless or racerback tops, fun prints or even a trendy blade collar.
