7 pairs of pants you need for fall golf
Fall golf weather is officially upon us. As the weather is no longer conducive to wearing shorts in many parts of the country (go ahead, laugh it up, Arizona and Florida golfers), now is a good time to take a look at your golf pants—and consider making some updates. If you're still trotting out pairs of dingy khakis when teeing it up in the colder weather, it's time to change that. Toss or donate any old or ill-fitting pairs and refresh your wardrobe with some of these new styles.

This light gray shade is an excellent replacement for khaki. The stylish color is more modern while the cut maintains an upscale look. These Bonobos Pants have an adjustable hem for the easiest customizable fit and there is a gripper gel in the waist to ensure your shirt stays tucked in. The performance fabric regulates body temperature and is ultra comfortable to play a few rounds in.
Joggers are another trend that you won't regret trying. No, these aren't sweatpants but they are almost as comfortable as your favorite pair of sweats. These joggers from Rhone have an upscale golf pant look with a trendy street-style ankle cuff leg closure. They'll look best with high-top or sneaker-style golf shoes. Make sure to wear no-show socks and let the closure fall just above the shoe.
Green pants like these Pumas are a strong style statement. The color is fresh, fun and easy to pair with. They'll look great on the golf course or paired with a crisp pair of white street sneakers. The fabric technology wicks away sweat to keep you dry and the stretch-poly build makes for a comfortable wear across the seasons.
Five-pockets pants have denim-inspired features. That fifth pocket is the tiny square pocket at the hip that was traditionally designed to carry a pocket watch. The trend has become popular once again as the demand for golf clothes that transition well off-the course increases. These men's Nike golf pants are a great pair to throw into your trouser rotation because the slim fit is stylish and the color is ultra versatile. The company calls the color "Obsidian," which is a gray-blue hue that will match with just about anything.
A classic and ultra-popular golf pant, these are made with a soft knit fabric but finished with a durable water-repellent finish. Available in six different colors, these pants are great for those who want a straight-leg pant with a ton of stretch and roomy feel.
TravisMathew's men's golf collection has seen significant gains this year with pants like these leading the charge. The Right On Time men's golf pants have a waistband that offers almost two inches of stretch to avoid any squeezed feeling and are made with a lightweight and quick-drying fabric that feels great on.
A leader in the golf pant pack, the lululemon ABC pant has reigned supreme since its launch. Golfers love the stretchy feel, refined look and variety of colors. The ABC pant is also available in a jogger silhouette that has converted many jogger hold outs to wearing the style.
These women's golf pants have a subtle plaid pattern to brighten up the primarily black pant. Made with recycled materials, these ankle-length pants are made with four-way stretch, UV 50+ protection and a flexible mesh waistband.
These trousers are the closest thing we’ve found to a women’s version of the men's lulu ABC Pant with its fly-front, two back pockets and extra-refined finishing. They fit like your favorite broken-in pair of jeans with a ton of stretch and a high-rise fit. The ⅞ length falls stylishly at the ankle to show off your favorite pair of golf shoes—without the need for hemming.
These pull-on pants are another favorite for female golfers. They've got an elastic waistband and a legging-like feel with belt loops for an upscale touch. The pockets are roomy and the brand usually has a few fun color options in addition to its core black, navy, tan and white offerings.
