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.

    • I regret that I quit playing golf when I had kids.  I did buy them a cheap set when they were young. My daughter was never interested. My son was interested but time, money, general sense of family obligation, and fear of slow play kept us from playing more that a couple times per year, particularly after a golf buddy moved away. My son has atrial flutter, a heart tachycardia problem, that made him quit playing soccer after his sophomore year of high school.  Three ablations were not able to fix it and he relies on medication to control it now. He decided to play golf instead of soccer and now loves it. He is much better than I am and will play golf at an NAIA college this fall.  This finally got me back on the course over the last 3 years and he is my main playing partner for now. A younger friend of mine has 4 kids under 12 years old.  The older 2 are into golf and I end up playing with them sometimes when I play with my friend.  The younger 2 also occasionally play or at least ride along. We usually play an adult/kid scramble on Sunday nights when the course is not crowded.  It can be a lot of fun as the kids aren't too bad, but certainly not young Tigers either. Beginning this week I am playing in a Saturday night 2 man scramble league with one of the kids my partner.  I don't even know which one it is yet as I just agreed to it blindly.  I hope it is the 10 year old as he a slightly better swing than his older brother.  It will be interesting to see how that works out. I sometimes wish I had my kids on the course like my friend does.
    • The paparazzi got some photos of Woods heading into a hospital or something yesterday and seen putting "significant" (in their words) weight on injured leg. Hope his recovery is progressing smoothly.
    • I started golf with professional lessons around the age of 11 and have been golfing ever since.  Most of the stories with kids involved is of me.  However, I was also a rules marshal in my home course when we have junior tournaments there so have seen some kids who have become very impressive amateurs and even one or two who have become pro's. Regarding clubs, see if they can use the same clubs provided it doesn't affect their swing.  If not, either consider getting shaft extenders or look at clubs where you can change the shaft with a tool and then replace shafts as necessary.  Not cheap, I admit, but might be necessary.  Definitely consider the younger child getting hand me down clubs from the elder child provided the specs fit.
    • Our Junior golf program starts kids at a very young age and the kids progress as their abilities become better. Most will start will the 3 hole program playing from around 100 yards. Then they move back to 150. Then the program advances them to 5 hole rounds. They start at 150 and move back to 200 yards. When they are able to average a set scoring ability they will advance to 9 hole short course and then 9 hole long. During the stages, staff will have instructional days along with fun games they play at the range. Each season consists of a putting contest and a family scramble with award dinner at the end of the season sessions. The program has become very popular as the membership grows with over 300 kids participating. Parents are encouraged to keep scores for groups during the season. Many just walk along and observe and assist when needed. Most kids complete the entire program and they make many new friends. My observance over the years is when kids play, they are learning safe manners and  exhibit a good mannerism learning etiquette and sportsmanship and rules. IMO, kids will enjoy leaning golf with other kids. I enjoyed having my grandson in the program for several years. It also provided me an opportunity to meet the children of many regular golf members who I have golfed with through the years.
