Best Golf Towels

What is a golf towel used for? And why do we need a golf towel?

Playing golf in the UK without a golf towel is never going to end well. Even in the height of summer, the British climate ensures that a golf towel is an essential golf accessory.

In fact having two towels is always a good idea. One should be attached to your golf bag and used to clean the clubs and/or wipe grips and other one should be kept in the golf bag so hands can be kept dry when the weather turns.

Golf towels come in all shapes and sizes and the advent of super-absorbent microfibre has increased your material options.
