Golf is one of those games that need a great deal of investment, both financial and time, and golf clothes manufacturers are one of the few businesses that will keep you coming back again. When it comes to the fashion business, golf is a much smaller industry than most, with golf clothing being sold in only about half the amount of golf stores (compared to golf shoe and golf socks makers). Despite this, golf clothes manufacturers still manage to make a significant profit from the sport, so they're not just going to close down. That being said, here are a few tips on how you can find great golf clothes at great prices.
Probably one of the easiest ways to go about finding golf shoes or golf socks is to simply ask around. Ask your friends, family members, neighbors, colleagues and acquaintances what they think they'd like in golf clothes, and who they think they should get them from. They'll likely have a good selection of golf suppliers in their own closets, and you can pick up a lot of really useful ideas from their recommendations. If you don't know anyone who's golfing in your neighborhood, you could even try asking for some recommendations through Facebook or through online classifieds (there's millions of people posting their ads everyday!)
Another thing you can do is head over to your local golf store. Many golf shops have an in-store department dedicated to selling golf equipment, and they'll likely have a range of golf clothes on offer. It's worth heading over there at least once; it's a really great way to meet people and find out what styles people prefer. You may also be able to buy a used golf shirt for a fraction of the price you'd normally pay at another golf-shop (especially if it's a brand name shirt). Once you've bought a new set of golf clothes, you'll probably want to take them on holiday with you, so head to your local golf store and see if they have any packages available. These are often simply a couple of outfits that you can take on holiday with you or a few of them, which will save you both time and money - you could even try to negotiate a discount with your tour operator!
