Women golfers get new dress code

The Ladies Professional Golf Association has implemented a new dress code that must be adhered to by players in organised tournaments.In an email addressed to tour players on July 2, LPGA president Vicki Goetze-Ackerman summarised a list of items that will no longer be permitted on the course.If players don't respect the new policy, they will be fined 1,000 dollars for violating the dress code, with fines doubled for each additional offence.

As of July 17, the LPGA will crack down on the athletes following an email to all players from LPGA player president Vicki Goetze-Ackerman, which detailed an extensive list of clothing that will no longer be allowed on course and at pro-am parties on the tour. 

LPGA players will have to pay extra attention to their dress standards after the governing body released a new dress code standard.

Items in the new code were expressed in the following dot points in Goetze-Ackerman’s email:

  • Racerback with a mock or regular collar are allowed (no collar = no
  • Plunging necklines are NOT allowed.
  • Leggings, unless under a skort or shorts, are NOT allowed
  • Length of skirt, skort, and shorts MUST be long enough to not see your bottom area (even if covered by under shorts) at any time, standing or bent over.
  • Appropriate attire should be worn to pro-am parties. You should be dressing yourself to present a professional image. Unless otherwise told “no,” golf clothes are acceptable. Dressy jeans are allowed, but cut-offs or jeans with holes are NOT allowed.
  • Workout gear and jeans (all colours) NOT allowed inside the ropes
  • Joggers are NOT allowed
