Making sure your club or company team is smartly turned out


It doesn't matter where or what time of year you're in Scotland, but you'll hear this warning being bellowed somewhere. On hearing the sound, my advice is to immediately crouch down with your hands over your head, to protect it from small, white, rubber-filled missles that may ricochet off of it! 

Out here in East Lothian we're the home of the Golf Coast. We have 22 "must-play" golf courses along 30 miles of stunning coastline, and all within 30 minutes of Scotland's capital city. So it's not uncommon to find bewildered golfers, golf club still in hand, wandering around a beach searching for their lost ball amongst the white seashells that litter our beautiful shoreline.

Sadly I've never been properly introduced to golf. This is particularly strange, given that the majority of my Scottish childhood holidays involved male members of the family going off to play a round of golf. I drew the short straw and was taken shopping instead, when I would have much preferred to have been getting fresh air and exercise outside. Although I'm not sure that I could have coped with all that golf etiquette. Too many rules and regulations for my liking!

What I do know about golf, is that players of the game always seem to be so stylish. So it is not surprising that clothing from fab Scottish brands like Pringle, Glenmuir, and Lyle & Scott, are firm favourites with the golfing fraternity. Plus given the changeable nature of the British summer weather, it won't be unusual to watch competitors taking part in the 146th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale this weekend, or at the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open at Dundonald Golf Links in Troon later this month, pull on a wide range of apparel to cope with the sun, wind, and rain.

It's not just the players of golf that take care with how they look. Spectators of the game are equally fastidious about their attire. In 2015 I had the pleasure of helping Scottish solicitors and estate agents, Thorntons, to produce a special range of branded clothing and accessories for their staff to wear at the Open Championship. How dapper they all looked, as they lined the Old Course at St Andrews, where the competition was held that year.
