Looking just as good in the clubhouse as it does on the course is the Deco Grid wool and silk V-neck sweater, $195, from the fall Northern Lights Collection by Bobby Jones. It is tipped at the neck, cuffs and bottom and worn over the Ettore mélange cotton sport shirt with spread collar, $125.


Offered in a wide range of colors, the Bobby Jones raglan-sleeved mid-weight Crawford performance quarter-zip pullover is made of a stretchy polyester blend fabric and has a zippered chest pocket, $98.50. Sized from small to double-extra-large, it appears here with a jacquard performance polo, $69.50, and Franks Viceroy five-pocket pants in a cotton blend, $165.


When weather is unpredictable, dress in layers, such as the Bobby Jones water-repellant stretch fabric Denali full zip vest (seen atop post) in navy blue with contrast piping, $125, worn over a Pioneer striped polo, $95.


A jacket to have in your bag when a sudden rainstorm hits, Zero Restriction’s Power Torque quarter zip is made of highly waterproof, noiseless lightweight fabric that is seam sealed and has molded waterproof zippers, adjustable cuffs and an interior wind flap, $215.


The Shelby Packable jacket from Zero Restriction will stand up to the elements with its high waterproof and breathability rating, as well as sealed seams, waterproof zippers, adjustable Velcro cuffs, drawstring waist and stowaway hood, $245. It is shown with the silver Mae skort, $96.


To play in just about any conditions, pros like 2018 Women’s British Open champion Georgia Hall need to have a few key pieces to layer over their shirts and pants. Here, she wears a waterproof jacket with tonal panels, $170, over tech stretch pull-on trousers, $85, from Callaway. The seam-sealed jacket in a two-layer woven and enhanced stretch fabric has a knit lining and comes in four colors. Other pieces in the series include reversible quilted vests, $110, a quilted Thermore insulated jacket, $120, and windproof pants, $150.


Callaway makes what to wear on the course a gimme. Its fall men’s collection features a range of polos, $65-$75, that can be worn with lightweight performance fabric pants, $80, and when temperatures drop, topped with a quarter zip, $80, or a lightweight fleece pullover with linear print, $85, as modeled by PGA Tour professional Taylor Gooch.


A graphic black and-white floral pattern contrasts perfectly with the lipstick red in Jofit’s fall Prosecco collection. Pieces include a keyhole polo, $84, worn with the floral print skort, $98;  a striped sleeveless zip polo, $84, and skort, $84; and the raglan-sleeve mock neck floral print top, $98, with shorts, $96. The company’s signature figure-flattering pants (far right) include the cropped pants, left, $94, with a short sleeve mock-neck polo, $90; and cropped flare Capri in a twill check, $116, topped with a tech cutaway polo, $84. Visors, $26, and belts, $50, come in a wide range of sizes, with printed skorts, $98, available in sizes 00 to 16. The mock neck brushed jersey top, $80, runs from double extra small to double extra large.


A golf vest or jacket should lack bulk and stretch as you swing. Peter Millar’s Turin Stretch Shower Jacket, $195, and Calgary Vest, $165, in a subtle camo print (shown over a gray quarter-zip top) are windproof and water-repellant soft shells made of a three-layer interlock fabric with a breathable polyurethane membrane. The company’s Crown Sport fall collection features the cozy Birchmont stretch mélange quarter-zip pullover in a four-way stretch jersey knit with brushed ribbed back in four colors at $125.
