The best waterproof golf trousers that you'll be happy to wear come rain or shine.
Many golfers find themselves pulling on a pair of waterproof trousers every time they play in winter. Some like the extra warmth they offer; others just want to keep their trouser ankles clean. But in this day and age, performance golf trousers can keep you warmer and more comfortable on the course than waterproof bottoms, whenever it’s not raining.
