Halloween is coming! Check out our list of golf-themed Halloween costumes...

1) Happy Gilmore

We’d be remiss not to mention everyone’s favourite fictional golf hero on our list. 

What you’ll need:

  • A plain (nameless) Boston Bruins Jersey
  • Yellow Duct tape to add “GILMORE” to the back of the jersey
  • Baggy blue pants

Everyone’s favourite PR Director. This makes a great pairing alongside Happy Gilmore if you’re seeking a partner/couple’s costume idea.

What you’ll need:

  • A dirty-blonde bob wig
  • A black pantsuit
  • White tank top

  • A golf club

4) First Female Golfer 

Golf started to become big in terms of female inclusion in North America at the turn of the century (the late 1800s to early 1900s)

Attire in this period was a lot different from what it is now, however. Long skirts, petticoats, puffy-sleeved tops, layered cardigans, and fancy adorning hats ruled the golf course for female fashion. Boots were the footwear of choice as women did not show ankles in this period.

What you’ll need:

  • A long skirt
  • Fancy blouse
  • Cardigan (optional)
  • Elegant hat
  • Booties

5) Augusta National Caddy 

This is potentially the most recognizable caddy ensemble in golf today. It is also a relatively easy-to-execute Halloween costume.

What you’ll need:

  • White paint coveralls (available at most hardware stores)
  • Printouts of the Masters logo, a number for your golfer, and last name to pin/glue gun onto the paint coveralls
  • A green ball cap

6) Couples Costume: Caddyshack’s Carl Spackler and a Gopher 

When it comes to golf-themed Halloween costumes, this is debatably the most dynamic duo one could pull off.

What you’ll need:

  • A camouflage bucket hat (for Carl)
  • Grey t-shirt (for Carl)
  • Khaki/light brown cargo capris (for Carl)
  • Chunk black boots (for Carl)
  • A gopher costume (though a brown bear costume may be manipulated to work)

To pull this one off solo: dress as Carl and use a stuffed gopher to accompany you.

7) Masters Winner 

It’s every golfer’s dream, but few have it realized. For one night, however, you can pretend you are a green jacket winner.

What you’ll need:

  • Green blazer (if you are wondering, Pantone 342 is the exact colour of the iconic jacket)
  • Masters logo (you can print one off and pin it or do an iron-on transfer)
  • Golf attire for beneath the green jacket

Bonus points if you make a replica trophy out of tin foil and cardboard.

8) Group Costume: Birdie, Eagle, Albatross 

This is one of the more creative ideas for golf-related Halloween costumes. Best done with two friends. People may not quite get it if you go as just one “bird” individually.

What you’ll need:

  • Bird costumes for the above types (bonus points if you make your own!)

9) “Dying to make a putt” 

This is one for the pun-lovers out there, and it is relatively easy to pull off... especially when compared to going as an albatross.

Dress as a skeleton with golf accessories, and a putter; voila!

What you’ll need:

  • A basic skeleton costume
  • A putter
  • Other golf accessories (golf glove, hat, golf shoes, etc.)

10) Mary, Queen of Scots 

Mary, Queen of Scots (also known as Mary Stuart) is regarded by many as the first female to golf. She was the ruler of Scotland from 1542 to 1567, during which time the famous St. Andrews Links golf course was developed. She is also noted to have coined the term “caddie”, named for her assistants which were known as “cadets.”

What you’ll need to pull it off:

  • An extravagant gown akin to what royal women wore in the 16th century (check your local costume shop or thrift store)
  • A curly updo (wig, natural hair, or temporary hair dye… Mary’s hair was a reddish brown)
  • Hair jewels or a jeweled headband
