Travelling abroad on a golf trip to sunnier climates is always cause for excitement. What might not be as enthralling, or, dare we say it, even a daunting prospect, is choosing what to wear.

However, fear not, as Glenmuir have you covered with this go-to guide detailing everything you need to consider, so you feel and look your best both on the course and at the golf club, too.

A golfing break abroad should be about having fun and not worrying about what you are going to wear. Our guide is here to take a little bit of the stress away from choosing the correct attire and accessories to bring with you. It's not exhaustive, however, and, there may be some things that you don't want to include. And that's absolutely fine by us.

So, without further ado, let's get discussing.

What Golf Clothing Tops To Wear In Spain?

When headed for a golf getaway in Spain, be sure to pack some UV, moisture-wicking golf shirts. The mercury can go up quickly, so it's important to wear clothing that allows you to stay cool and composed in the middle of the day when the weather is warmest.

You'll still want to plan for the cooler mornings and evenings, however. With that, it's a great idea to pack some mid-layers and collared shirts that will help you stay comfortable as you tee up with your friends when the temperature is a little lower.

The great thing about lots of golf clothes is that they can easily double as sightseeing attire, too. With polo golf shirts, for example, you'll be ready for a round of golf, sightseeing, or even a night out. Amp up your evening look with a sophisticated Merino sweater – and you'll be ready to take on the 19th hole in style.

Ultimately, choose your golfing attire based on what you feel most comfortable in.

Saying that however: while you might be able to get away with wearing a hoodie at your local golf course, it's always best to check the dress code before you visit a new venue - especially when you're travelling abroad. That way, you won't have to splurge on a new outfit if your current one doesn't meet the requirements.

What Golf Trousers To Wear in Spain?

It's perfectly acceptable to visit a golf club wearing shorts - as long as they abide by the dress code, of course. Opt for a looser fit to encourage airflow and choose lighter colours such as white or tan to help reduce overheating.

If you prefer to wear trousers, select a brand with synthetic construction to draw away sweat and look for pants articulated at the knees to prevent bunching.

When it comes to undergarments, underwear made from moisture-wicking fabric or breathable wool will keep you dry and cool while you play is key.

For ladies, the above rules still apply. However, women have the additional choice of opting for a skirt to help them keep cool. If you want to keep your look chic during your swing, why not try a skort?

It's the perfect combo of skirt and shorts, so you don't have to worry about any embarrassing mishaps that could potentially occur with a skirt. Plus, look out for moisture-wicking brands to battle any bunching up on sweaty days.

Golf Waterproofs To Play In Spain

Although Spain is largely known for its beautiful weather, there's always the risk of a spot of rain. If you don't want to get soaked on the golf course, we recommend packing some lightweight waterproofs on your next golf trip to Spain.

So, always be sure to do a bit of research on what golf clubs you want to visit before your next golf trip abroad.

What's the best time of year to visit golf courses in Spain?

In our humble opinion, the best time to visit courses in Spain would have to be during the spring and early summer months when the weather is perfect for a round of golf. Spring in Spain typically runs from March to May and early summer from June to August.

However, if you like your temperatures a little cooler, consider Autumn for a slightly more refreshing, yet pleasant round of golf.

Should I bring my own golf clubs?

Bringing your own clubs can be a great way to make sure you're prepared for the game of golf, no matter the stakes. If you're headed to a competition, it may be worth the time and effort to pack your own clubs - you'll be used to playing with them and won't need to worry about renting once you arrive.

On the other hand, if you're just looking to relax and have some fun, you may find it's less hassle to leave your clubs and any other sports equipment at home. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide which route is best for your game.
