American Golf dedicates an entire Shorts section worthy of keeping any golfer’s lower body feeling cool and collective in the warmer climates. Golf shorts act as the perfect supplement to wearing a pair of golf trousers in the warmer temperatures because they exquisitely retain air flow to the lower body and as a result prevent you from sweating in those more humid climates. Furthermore, shorts provide a player with added comfort in the warmer weathers and therefore allow for a greater range of motion which is ideal to any golfer when extreme heat can cause aggravation to a player’s golf swing. Our fabulous shorts lineup features a huge variety of pairs across the majority of leading golf fashion brands such as PUMA Golf, Greg Norman, Stromberg, Under Armour, Röhnisch, adidas Golf, Ellesse, Ping, Benross, GOLFINO, Calvin Klein, FootJoy, and Ralph Lauren. Collectively our huge shorts collection includes pairs of numerous patterns, styles and colour combinations such as Beige, Black, Blue, Green, Grey, Navy, Pink, Red, White and Multi Colour. Our stunning short range also features pairs of shorts available in both Male, Female and Junior sizes in order to guarantee improving any player’s golfing wardrobe. Within the Female category we also provide a collection of skorts to increase the amount of choice on offer to any female golfer.

Unlike a pair of golf trousers, golf shorts are fitted all to the same standard length. For Males, these are then separated in size order in the form of a normal waist measurement. American Golf offers an extensive selection of short sizes to cater for all types of waists. We therefore supply Male shorts in widths sizes of 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44 and 46. Similarly to the units used to separate trouser sizes, all of shorts are categorised in the form of the measurement of a person’s waist size in inches.
Ladies golf shorts or skorts can either be found in the regular ladies numbered clothing format or via the use of general worded size segments. The two variables all depend on the make and model of the pair of ladies golf shorts. Brands such as Greg Norman, adidas Golf and PUMA Golf all prefer sizing their collection of ladies golf shorts via the use of worded size formats. We therefore provide a wide variety of ladies shorts available in sizes X Small, Small, Medium, Large and X Large. Usually, an X Small measures between 28-29 inches at the waist, Small 30-31 inches, Medium, 32-33 inches, Large 34-36 inches and X Large 37-39 inches. The remaining ladies golf shorts are shoppable via the separation of regular ladies clothing sizes and are therefore available in sizes 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18.
American Golf proudly caters for the younger generation with a brilliant assortment of Junior golf shorts available. Depending on the manufacturer, our junior golf shorts are separated between three sizing options determined by the regular waist size based on a junior’s age. We therefore stock junior golf shorts in sizes 7-8 years old, 9-10 years old and 11-12 years old. Ideally each child would fit into a pair of golf shorts matching their corresponding age. Ultimately depending on a junior’s size, sometimes they can move up or down the sized age bracket accordingly, until the child has found the pair of shorts which clearly fit the best. If you are unsure of your child’s size, then we highly recommend venturing into one of our retail stores so that one of our experts can assist in the right direction of finding the best suited junior pair of golf shorts.
Golf Shorts Frequently Asked Questions
Can you play golf in shorts?
Yes, most clubhouses and courses will allow you to play in shorts. However, most places will only allow you to play in golf shorts, not running shorts or gym shorts. Golf shorts that are tailored, finished just above the knee, and have belt loops for you to wear the obligatory belt are permitted across most if not all golf clubs. We’d recommend double checking your own clubhouse’s dress code, though.
What are the best golf shorts?
The best golf shorts are those that are allowed by the majority of clubs: they finish above the knee, are tailored, breathable, elasticated at the waist, and have belt loops. Performance-wise, Under Armour golf shorts and adidas golf shorts are favourites of professional and recreational golfers alike. With big brand names like these you can opt for plenty of stylistic choices - either understated or colourful.
