Golfing Tips

10 Sun Safety Tips for Golfers
Get into the swing of protecting your skin!

  1. Apply a UVA and UVB sunscreen (broad-spectrum) with an SPF of 15 or higher 30 minutes before going outdoors.
  2. Use a golf-ball sized amount of sunscreen (one ounce) to cover your entire body.
  3. Re-apply every nine holes (every two hours! - even on a cloudy or cool day.)
  4. Completely coat all exposed areas of your face, head and body, ears, neck, nose, shoulders, back of the hands and front/back of your arms and legs.
  5. Cover your lips with sun protective lip balm or sunscreen.
  6. Check expiration dates on your sunscreen to ensure effectiveness.
  7. Seek shade whenever possible, and cover yourself with a golf umbrella between holes.
  8. Wear a broad-brimmed hat (preferably with a back flap) instead of baseball caps to help protect your face, ears and neck.
  9. Protect your eyes with UV-protective sunglasses.
  10. Wear sun protective clothing (tightly woven) including long pants and long-sleeved shirts as often as possible.
Examine skin often. Any skin lesion that crusts, bleeds or does not heal should be examined by a dermatologist promptly. Moles that itch, bleed or change in size, shape or color should be examined promptly. Have your skin thoroughly examined by a dermatologist at least once a year, or as recommended by your dermatologist.

Practice sun safety as a way of life!
