A fashion accessory that makes a mark :-)

Jun 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Features, In The Hole!

It’s one of those ideas that is so obvious — once you’ve seen it — you can’t believe someone didn’t think of it ages ago. It’s a magnetic golf marker — and it’s a beautiful decorative pin. The company is called LuckieMark, and you won’t be surprised when you mention there’s a woman behind it. […]



Anna Nordqvist. PUMA.

Jun 15th, 2009 | By | Category: Features, In The Hole!

That was a pretty spectacular performance by Anna Nordqvist at this weekend’s McDonald’s LPGA Championship, wasn’t it? Wins a major as a rookie, jumps 80 spots up on the money list, secures a spot in the U.S. Open. Not bad for a woman who just turned 22! And talk about poise! She delivered the most […]



Golf Green Gear is a natural

Jun 11th, 2009 | By | Category: Features, In The Hole!

Do you like the feel of natural fabrics on your skin when you’re golfing? So do we, which is why we tend to gravitate toward cotton. That is, until we put on a bamboo woman’s golf polo from Golf Green Gear. We admit it — we were once a little bit skeptical. Oh, we know […]



Splash!

Jun 5th, 2009 | By | Category: Features, In The Hole!

No, you don’t want your ball in the water. But you can make a splash on the course when you tee up wearing a delicious print top. We took a tour around one of our favorite online golf apparel retailers, Golfsmith, which (in addition to great prices) offers free shipping on orders of $99 or […]



Buckle up!

Jun 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: Features, In The Hole!

Given that flashy belt buckles are a smokin’ hot accessory trend right now, this should come as no surprise: a buckle business out of Tampa, Fla, has seized the moment . . . and launched an e-commerce site. We didn’t find any golf-themed buckles as we browsed the Hot Buckles inventory, but they do have […]



Karen Stupples in Trigelle

May 27th, 2009 | By | Category: Eyes on the pros, Features, In The Hole!

Okay, we admit it. Sometimes when we’re standing over that putt, we dream of being a professional golfer. But we know we’re kidding ourselves. It’s the rare woman who really has what it takes. Karen Stupples is one of those women. Today, she’s a career mom who has crossed the $3 million mark in cumulative […]



What Grandma Used to Wear :-)

May 12th, 2009 | By | Category: Features, In The Hole!

When we stumbled across vintage clothing afficiando Lizzie Bramlett, whose delightful blog can be read here, we suspected right away that she’d be wealth of information about vintage golf fashions. We invited her to share a bit of what she knows — and she didn’t disappoint! Read on to enjoy her article on the evolution […]



The loveliest gloves

May 7th, 2009 | By | Category: Features

We might be competitive as tigresses on the course, but we women golfers appreciate pretty things, don’t we! So isn’t this nice? You can walk right past those utilitarian, unisex gloves you see in every pro shop and sporting goods store and instead pick a golf glove that is elegant, and feminine, and matches the […]



Give Fit a Chance

Apr 16th, 2009 | By | Category: Features, In The Hole!

Yeah, golf clothing needs to look great. That goes without saying! But it also needs to fit well. And not just because the better if fits, the better you look. There’s also a practical consideration: when you’re swinging your golf club, you don’t want to notice your clothes. You don’t want to feel like you’re […]



Laura Diaz mixes a straight-up Golftini

Mar 19th, 2009 | By | Category: Features, In The Hole!

Laura Diaz is one of those LPGA pros you love to cheer on. She makes the cut consistently (24 out of 27 starts last year). She’s off to a great start in the 2009 golf season — she’s already positioning herself to land a spot on this year’s USA Solheim Cup team. She’s a working […]
