How to prepare for playing golf in Autumn

Playing golf in autumn can be a wonderful experience, with cooler temperatures and the beautiful colors of this magical season. However, it is important to take into consideration a few things before hitting the course.

Dress for the weather

Firstly, it is important to dress appropriately for the weather. As the temperature can fluctuate during autumn, layer up: Autumn weather can be unpredictable, so it's a good idea to layer your clothing so that you can easily adjust to changing temperatures. Our Condor ZQ Merino Women's Golf Polos are perfect for layering and can be worn as a base, under a vest or jacket, or on their own on milder days.

Be prepared

Secondly, autumn weather can be unpredictable, so it is a good idea to check the weather forecast before heading out to play. Rain and wind can make playing more difficult and can affect your game, so it's best to be prepared.

Layers are your friend

Thirdly, as much as it’s uncomfortable to feel cold, autumn can also bring some warm sunny weather so don’t pack away that golf skort just yet. Teamed with tights, it can look just as good as it does with socks.

Add accessories: To complete your autumn golf outfit, consider adding accessories like a beanie or gloves to keep you warm and comfortable on the course. Our ZQ Merino Women's Golf Polos and beanies are lightweight and breathable, so they won't add bulk to your outfit.

Check the daylight hours 

Lastly, be aware of the shorter daylight hours in autumn, and plan your round of golf accordingly. Make sure you have enough time to complete your round before the sun sets.

Autumn is such a beautiful time of the year and, with the right clothing preparation, playing golf in autumn can be a great way to enjoy the outdoors.
