Best Golf Hoodies 2022

Published:

We review the best golf hoodies from Nike, adidas, Puma, Ralph Lauren, TravisMathew, Under Armour, FootJoy, and more.

Whilst stalwart traditionalists will still insist hoodies don’t belong on the golf course, golf hoodies are here to stay.

They are becoming increasingly popular on tour, with players including Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, and Tyrrell Hatton sporting a golf hoodie in recent years, and more and more amateurs are now adding a hoodie to their golf wardrobe.

Justin Thomas drew plenty of attention with his Greyson hoodie at The Open.

They’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but the best golf hoodies are comfortable, versatile, practical, and can look the business, both on and off the golf course.

Golf hoodies buying guide

Are you allowed to wear a hoodie to play golf?

Absolutely. It’s always worth double-checking the dress code rules at any club you’re planning to join or play but, with hoodies now fully accepted on the game’s biggest tours and worn by some of the world’s most famous players, it’d be a pretty archaic club that wouldn’t allow one to be work on their course.

The beauty of a golf hoodie is that it looks just as good off the course as it does on it, so is ideal when you’re heading straight to golf from work or if you want to stay for a drink and a bite to eat after your round.

From full-zip hoodies designed for comfort to the more athletic pullover styles, there are a huge range available from a host of the sport’s big-name manufacturers and they make a superb addition to anyone’s golf wardrobe.

Things to consider before you buy

Design

Consider what you want the hoodie to do. Is it an item of clothing to keep you warm on the course in the winter, or are you seeking a hoodie that can be worn year-round, as an outer-layer in the spring and summer, or as part of a multi-layer system during the cold months. And make sure you decide if you want a hoodie that only really looks right on the course, or if you want one that can be worn in day-to-day life, too.

Material

There are various options available, from fleece for warmth to more elastine-based designs which are more flexible and easy to swing in. Then there are hoodies that have been designed to offer some water resistance if you’re caught in a shower. Higher cotton designs are often a little smater looking for off the course.

Movement

A hoodie looks great but it’s vital that it’s practical. If it’s not comfortable to swing in then ultimately it’s not going to be of much use. Make sure you try on your favourites and take a few practice swings in the fitting room to ensure the hood doesn’t get in the way and that the material doesn’t restrict your movement.

Looks

As with all apparel, there is something for every taste. Whether it’s the more subtle, understated look, or a loud and proud option, there really is an option for everyone and most brands will have designs that tick every box.

Versatility

If you buy a hoodie that you can wear on the course, but also use at the gym, wear down the pub, or chuck on when you’re nipping to the shops, then you’re getting an item that will prove far better value for money than one that you can only wear when you’re playing.

Budget

As with golf clubs and golf shoes, golf hoodies really vary in price, so be sure you set your budget and stick to it. There will be something that you can afford and that meets your needs, but be sure to take into account that versatility category above. If there’s only a small difference in price between a hoodie that can be worn everywhere and one that can only be worn for golf then it may be worth spending that little bit extra.
