What are the best golf beanie hats?
Keeping your head warm is absolutely imperative when it comes to playing golf in cold temperatures.
As we saw at this year's Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits, there's nothing quite like a good old-fashioned beanie hat for keeping you cosy and protected from the elements, whether it's because of an early tee time, later evening round or because you play through the winter.
With a myriad of options available, we thought we'd put together a conclusive guide on what we think are the best beanies out there, hopefully helping you overcome those timeless questions: 'style or comfort?', 'acrylic or polyester?', 'to pom or not-to-pom?'.
A golf beanie can only do so much when it comes to warmth and weather protection, so make sure to also check out our guides to the best thermal jackets, waterproof jackets, waterproof trousers, waterproof shoes, mid-layers, base layers, winter gloves, rain gloves, beanies and mitts to help you complete your winter wardrobe.
