“Bring the Fun”… The motto of this company says it all.
I have been looking lately for ways to spice up my apparel selection to bring some character to my otherwise flat golf game, and came across Dudley Divots.
There are a lot of companies out there offering funny prints and ironic patterns for polo shirts, but not a lot of options when it comes to pants and shorts. Enter Dudley with their line of “expressive” shorts that are sure to turn some heads!
Let’s talk about the prints that Dudley Divots offers: Since they are just starting up, there are 4 prints to choose from and I love them all equally. Ranging from Patriotic to Pistachio, they certainly have style sure to stand out.
You will notice that one of their options is just all black and may be thinking to yourself, “Black? How is that a unique option?” Well, to answer this I’ll ask you to look past the print and let me comment on the fit.
As you can tell by the photos, the Dudley Divots waistbands are completely elastic. Because most of us don’t have a Will Zalatoris physique, we need a little forgiveness around the old tummy. This is especially important around hole 13 when I usually find myself looking for a place to store that 6th beer. I opted for a medium size, and being a size 34 waist found there to be plenty of room.
The shorts were a little shorter than I normally wear, but that is the style most companies are going with these days. Plus, we can all use a little tan on our man thighs, right?
I would equate the fit and comfort to be similar to your favorite pair of gym shorts… and, yes, that is a good thing! We all have enough struggles with our game – let’s not add tight pants to the equation.
These shorts are on the heavier side when it comes to the fabric. Made of a 4-way stretch material, I never had a problem with feeling constricted. They are also made with anti-sweat material. I certainly put that to the test during some steamy Florida rounds and am happy to report I had no unsightly butt sweat stains!
There are two back pockets with oversized snaps on the back. I liked how easy they were to open and close throughout the round. I found myself using them for everything from tees to gloves and balls.
Don’t forget to pick up one of the dope-rope hats they offer – it really completes the look out on the course.

About the Company
I always love reading about origin stories and what a brand is all about. Dudley has a great blurb on their website describing the drive behind their shorts:
You’re probably wondering what exactly does Dudley mean?
To keep a long story short, it was the name given to a group of best friends that loved to just have fun and nothing but good times. That’s what Dudley Divots is all about!
If you play golf regularly you know how stuffy and serious the game can be sometimes. Today’s golf apparel is very dressy and professional, almost too serious.
That’s what we want to change. We focus on the good times golf offers us and all the fun that comes along with it. We believe golf needs more of this and that is why we designed golf shorts that lighten up the games apparel while maintaining true comfort, and a very unique fit.
Our goal with all of our apparel is to remind those wearing it to stay positive and have a great time.
