Women's Golf Style
9 woman-owned businesses to support this Women's History Month
It can be a seemingly impossible task to find well-fitting and stylish golf clothing options as a female golfer. Many women have the impression that golf apparel tends to be on the stuffier side—stiff collars, restrictive fabrics, unflattering cuts—but as the game continues to evolve and modernize, there are more appealing clothing and accessory options for women than ever before. And who knows the female body better than female golfers themselves? This Women’s History Month, check out some of our favorite female-owned and founded brands golfers should know about. From feminine silhouettes to upscale stretch fabrics, these pieces are made with the modern female golfer in mind. Whether you’re looking for a golf dress that can perfectly transition to dinner time or a sleek pair of leggings with pockets for your next range session, shopping at woman-owned businesses is always worth it.

Mumford Golf’s designs are meant to be transitional — she wants female golfers to be able to wear her pieces without thinking they're in "golf clothes." Plus, the collection is great for all body types.
