Once the person wearing pants starts sweating it will look like they wet their pants and therefore they will look more immature.

Usually shorts, but I have a couple light-colored, light-material pants I might try this year, mostly to avoid having to try to apply sunscreen to hairy legs.  I have some lightweight, just off-white

It also depends on the environment.  If you're out in glaring sun in a dry climate (like, e.g., southern California), a lot of your heating comes from direct radiation from the sun.  Shading yourself

To answer your first question, I normally wear shorts in the summer... out here where I am it'll be around 105-110 in the middle of summer.  However, I've got some lightweight pants and they are pretty comfortable in the heat as well.  As far as cheaper alternatives, check out Target... they have C9 golf pants which are very similar to the ones made by Nike/UA/Adidas/etc.  These are the ones that I have, and like I said, they are pretty good especially for $30.  I also picked up a similar pair at Golfsmith on clearance for $20 made by Lynx... If I remember correctly they were around $40 originally.

Shorts. Always shorts. I don't know if I could remain conscious playing in 103*F + humidity in pants.

Usually I wear pants because most of the courses I play at frown upon shorts.

But here in Japan during summer, it is so humid, no wind, that whenever I have the chance, I'll wear shorts. (or to the surprise of iacas, long shorts).

It is true that the pants made with fancy new fabrics from Adidas or Nike and the likes are very nice and let air circulate, though.

Pants all year round unless the humidity is above 95%, which is rare here in northern california. I find that it keeps the legs actually cooler, rather than having sun beat down on them. The key is finding pants that fit correctly and aren't too thick.

Shorts are for boy scouts fellas. Men wear pants. Why do the pros wear the pants? Because they're there to get business done, not have a bunch of beers in a backyard picnic.

No, the pros wear the pants because they are required to. Shorts are for the real men. I don't go to the golf course to get business done I go there to enjoy a round of golf.

I'm stunned at the number of people here who say they wear slacks in the summer.  I work as a starter and I can count the number of players in long pants on one hand most days at my home course.  Nobody I know plays in slacks during the summer.  Most start wearing shorts the first semi-warm day in March or April and continue to do so until October.

The percentages here in this thread and the percentages I see in real life on the course aren't even in the same ball park.

What do you think is the reason for the disparity?

  1. International influence - golf outside the U.S. is played  in more formal setting?
  2. Higher concentration of lower handicap golfers on TST who play as the pro's do?
  3. Sense of superiority by those who wear pants to squelch those who wear shorts from coming forward?
  4. Course culture at your courses is more relaxed?

I see most golfers on muni and semi-private courses wearing shorts in the summer.  Only time I see majority in slacks is at exclusive country clubs which discourage members and their guests from wearing shorts.

We wear shorts practically year round here. You can occasionally spot someone with pants on. Probably riding in a cart too.

You wear pants here right now, and you may get laughed at by some, but hey, to each his own.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments. For your information, the Chief Wahoo image is part of an exhibit at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
