Summer

On the Fore-front of Fashion

There was a time in the not-too-distant past that golf fashion was something of an oxymoron.  No longer! With the glorious spring weather, now is the time to get out on Sun Valley’s links and to do it in style. This year’s golf looks are functional, fashionable and fabulous.

Just like runway looks influence ready-to-wear fashion trends, tour players are the arbiters of golf fashion.  This year the biggest looks worn by the biggest players are inspired by yoga wear.  Featuring high tech materials that wick moisture, stretch with your swing and flatter, this sporty trend is a great option for everyone. Other important trends? Bright colors, color gradations (for instance, a polo shirt is navy blue at the top, a lighter blue in the midsection and almost white at the bottom) and layering. Layering is particularly important in women’s golf fashion as the new look is to wear Capri length athletic pants underneath a skirt. 

This year’s looks for the links are yoga inspired and feature bright colors and lots of layering

The first stop for anyone wanting to look the part this year? The Pro Shop at the Sun Valley Clubhouse, located just east of the Lodge and Resort, carries all the latest trends for men and ladies. Right now, the selection is great.  

According to Jeffrey Peterson (PGA), the Director of Golf at Sun Valley, now is the time to update your look on the links.

“We are looking forward to a fantastic golf season in Sun Valley and it’s already off to a terrific start,” Jeffrey said. “Golfers can expect to look great and feel comfortable in this year’s fashions. There is a big emphasis on tech fabrics to keep everyone cool and no matter your style, from traditional to modern, you will find something that is perfect.”

Jeffrey Peterson, Director of Golf at Sun Valley, said it will be easy this year for both men and women to be comfortable and look great on Sun Valley’s stunning courses

Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is right around the corner on May 10 and if that special mom in your world loves to golf, a new golf top, skort, shoes or even clubs is the perfect gift that will keep on giving.  Perhaps she would also like a few golf lessons. Check at the Clubhouse to set them up and she will be well ahead of the game for the glorious summer to come.

Golf is a sport that has always emphasized style – in an athlete’s swing or in what he or she wears. The look is largely classic and always will be, but variations on the theme keep it fresh. This year’s fashions are comfortable, colorful and covetable.

The Sun Valley Clubhouse is golf headquarters in Sun Valley. Here, you can get outfitted at the great Pro Shop, enjoy a fabulous meal, book a lesson and head out onto the links

Sun Valley’s courses are enjoying the earliest open ever and it’s beautiful out there. The Back Nine at the Trail Creek course and the Front Nine at Elkhorn are currently open. The White Clouds are projected to open April 25 and the family-friendly Sawtooth Putting Green is scheduled to open May 2.

Sun Valley is golf heaven. Make sure you update your look, loosen up your swing at the practice facilities and book a lesson to ensure your best season ever. There are some great lodging and golf packages available too – be sure to check them out!
