PACKING COTTON for a golf vacation? Wait!

So-called “technical fabrics” — designed for movement, wicking and even quietness on the golf course — are the talk of the golf clothing industry. But cotton has its staunch devotees, who profess an almost cultlike “nothing else but” loyalty to 100 percent purity.

Of course, that cult has to iron — and most women golfers would rather be golfing than ironing their golf clothes, especially on vacation.

What are the other pros and cons of cotton and tech fabrics (lumped in the category of “polyester”)? GottaGoGolf Magazine caught up with Danielle Dellios, women’s designer for Antigua, to find out. Continue reading

ULRIKA SKOGHAG’S PARENTS started Daily Sports in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1995, and quickly built a collection of golf clothes with great woman-appeal for its sporty yet feminine looks and consistent colors from year to year.

So when Elisabeth and Rolf retired four years ago, the good daughter said, “I think I should take care of what they started, a good brand.” She took up golf and became CEO.
