How do you choose a pair of golf trousers?

How do you choose a pair of golf trousers?


With so many types of ladies’ golf trousers now available, it can be a tad daunting to decide which ones to choose to say the least! With that in mind, we have put together some key pointers to help you choose and make the best decision for you in terms of comfort, performance and of course, value for money.


Of course, with any trousers comfort is key! Not rocket science I hear you say but never has it been more important than when you are walking round a golf course for hours, and how uncomfortable it is when we get it wrong and seams are rubbing or waistbands too tight to be bending down.

So, what actually makes a pair of golf trousers comfortable?

  • Fabric Quality: One pair of trousers is like any other, isn’t it? No, golf trousers are typically made from high-quality materials specifically designed to provide comfort during physical activity. Choose high-quality materials that offer both comfort and functionality. Performance fabrics like polyester-spandex blends or nylon offer moisture-wicking properties, breathability, and stretch for optimal performance. Avoid fabrics that wrinkle easily or lack durability, as they may not withstand the rigors of the golf course. Fabrics have developed so far technically, gone is the need to hear every step as you walk! Comfortable golf trousers are breathable, allowing air to circulate and prevent overheating. This feature is particularly important during warmer weather or intense physical exertion on the course.The fabric choice of course also needs to meet the season its intended for.  The same pair is unlikely to serve you equally well on a cold Spring Day as it would on a bitter Winter’s day out on the course. As such, some brands offer golf trousers that are fleece lined to give you that extra protection and  warmth while also feeling lovely! The Pure Golf Bernie trouser is a great value fleece lined trouser that is perfect for cooler days.
  • Seam Placement: Well-designed golf trousers feature strategically placed seams that minimize rubbing and irritation, especially in areas prone to friction during movement.
  • Waistband Design: A comfortable waistband is crucial for ensuring that golf trousers stay in place without digging into your skin or causing discomfort. The more classic trouser styles have a more structured waistband whilst the move to the more relaxed fit and fabrics of pull-on trousers are much softer and very comfortable. The golf version of this can cleverly blend a comfortable pull-on style but with a more formal and smarter look required on the golf course. Perfect examples of these are the Daily Sports Magic women’s golf trousers or the Tail Golf Mulligan. They are so comfy and smart I am sure you will find yourself, like me, wearing them everywhere!
  • Durability: Comfort also comes from knowing that your trousers can withstand the rigors of the golf course. Durable construction and reinforced stitching ensure longevity, allowing you to focus on your game without worrying about wardrobe malfunctions.

This is all about your personal style preference and what makes you feel confident on the course. Golf trousers usually come in two main styles, classic straight-leg and modern slim-fit. Additionally, pay attention to details such as pockets, we know the more pockets the more places there are to stuff tees and balls - the more the better! Belt loops are generally very welcome and allow a belt to complete a very finished and tailored look. Some golf trousers have ball markers built in like the Daily Sports Magic style. This can be a very helpful addition.


A proper fit is essential for both comfort and performance. Choose trousers that fit well around the waist, hips, and thighs without being too tight or too loose. The length should be just right, avoiding excess fabric bunching at the ankles or dragging on the ground. At Surprizeshop we offer a large range of different lengths from 27 to 32 inch including ankle grazers and 7/8 trousers (high water golf trousers) which have now become increasingly more popular especially with LET and LPGA tour players. Of course, every brand fit is unique to them and often heavily influenced by the country the brand originates from. The Scandinavian brands like Daily Sports prefer a tighter fit, American like Tail Golf more generous fits and European brands like Pure Golf are somewhere in the middle! If you are a convert to a brand, you should be familiar with their sizing but if not please refer to the size guides provided by the brands to help you with your choice. These are a useful resource when you are selecting your size.  Proper tailoring ensures that golf trousers fit well without being too tight or too loose. This tailored fit reduces chafing and irritation, enhancing overall comfort during prolonged wear.



Golf trousers should be designed to enhance your performance on the course that provide durability and flexibility during your swings and movements. Additionally, consider trousers with UV protection to shield your skin from harmful sun rays during long hours on the course. All Tail Golf Trousers have sun protection of UPF 50+ built in as standard, as do all of their polo shirts and dresses.



Don’t be afraid to inject some personality into your wardrobe with bold colors or fun patterns. Just ensure your choice adheres to any dress codes enforced by your golf club or course. The ladies golf brands like Pure Golf offer a full top to toe look coordinating your trousers with upper layering pieces, this is a great opportunity to express your personality.



Research reputable golf apparel brands known for their quality, performance, and attention to detail. Reading reviews from other golfers can provide valuable insights into the fit, comfort, and durability of specific trousers, helping you make an informed decision. Look for any awards that brands have won. Pure Golf won ladies golf brand of the year for 2023/24 as voted by lady golfers themselves. Awards and reviews are a great way to find out what other lady golfers think of the brand and specific products.



Like in every other walk of life there are different price points for different budgets! The premium/designer golf brands like Daily Sports offer the top technological fabrics, longevity and of course the brand credibility and identity. If budget or preference doesn’t allow you can find great quality and functioning trousers at your price point.  Regardless of the price point, it's essential to choose golf trousers that meet your specific needs and preferences in terms of fit, comfort, and performance on the course.


By considering these factors and taking the time to try on different styles and brands, you can find the perfect pair of ladies' golf trousers that meet your needs and help you look and feel your best on the course.

The demands of a golf game are unique so investing in a good pair of women’s golf trousers is an underestimated but impactful investment in your game.
