Warming Up: What To Wear
Average summer temperatures run from around 65-75F (18-23oC) but this does not take into account the 'wind chill' factor.

In this case, particularly on links courses, a woollen sweater and waterproofs are worth keeping at hand as the weather here can change surprisingly quickly.

There are dress codes associated with most golf clubs. These are now fairly universal with jeans, collarless shirts and so on being frowned upon although some clubs will tolerate them - again check ahead.

There are one or two more traditional clubs that insist on gentlemen wearing a jacket, collar and tie into the main lounge but the overseas visitor will find it is worth making the effort as the older the club, the more rich your golfing experience here will be.
