A good winter golf glove makes playing in the cold and wet a pleasure (well, a lot less miserable). 

We don't know many golfers who would rather play in the cold and rain than warm, dry weather, but given the choice of a winter round or no golf at all, we'll get head out every day of the week. 

But there's no denying that playing golf in winter conditions presents its own set of challenges, the main one feeling like you're losing control of your clubs because you've got cold, wet grips, hands and gloves. 

Fortunately, nowadays there are winter golf gloves specifically designed to help when playing in the off-season. Sold individually or in pairs, they feature technology that aids traction and/or helps to keep your hands warm.

The Best Winter Golf Gloves

1. Galvin Green Lewis Interface-1 Thermal

RRP £39.95 (pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes S-XL | Colours Black

Galvin Green Lewis Interface-1 Thermal winter golf gloves.

The Galvin Green gloves featuring Interface-1 technology are completely windproof to keep your hands warm.

Cabretta leather palms and super tacky finger tips provide excellent grip during colder months, while excellent breathability ensures the hands remain warm without getting damp or sweaty.

Very durable, easy to wash and maintain and, as you'd expect, a high-quality product that justifies the price.

2. MacWet Climatec

RRP £30 (pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes XS-XXL | Colours Black

Macwet Climatec golf gloves.

British golfer Aaron Rai, a two time European tour winner, loves MacWet gloves so much he wears a pair every time he plays, no matter what the weather. They helped him to victory at the 2020 Scottish Open, where conditions were so bad during storm Alex that Ian Poulter reckoned they were the worst he’d ever played in.

We love how the Climatec are windproof, water resistant and have a fleece lining over part of the back of the glove. They also have exceptional grip through the palm.

They’re available in traditional size or a longer model for more warmth around the wrist and are also machine washable so you can keep them in tip top condition.

3. TaylorMade Rain Control

RRP £26.99 (pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes S-XL Colours Black

TaylorMade Rain Control waterproof golf gloves.

A technical microfiber material means the Rain Control give up to 40% more grip than a traditional glove in wet conditions.

Numbers like that make us think it’s always worth having a pair tucked in your bag for whenever the heavens open. They dry impressively quickly and, from our experience, the nylon fabric is extremely durable.

They're also one of the best fitting and feeling gloves that we've tried thanks to the ultra-thin microfibre suede. Assuming you look after them then it'll be £26.99 well spent on one of the best golf rain gloves out there.

4. MacWet Micromesh Rain golf gloves

RRP £24.99 (pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes XS-XXL | Colours Black

The MacWet Micromesh Rain Gloves are among the best winter golf gloves.

These are our waterproof golf gloves of choice with a pair living in the bag all year and worn for every round throughout the winter months. Not only are they fully waterproof and breathable, they grip more the wetter they get.

They're also incredibly durable. We've used ours across two seasons and, because they're machine washable, they still look fantastic.

The MacWet Aquatec can be worn all year-round – just wear one glove in normal to dry and humid conditions and wear the pair when it's wet or damp. 

In use, MacWet gloves dry naturally within five-10 minutes, keeping performance consistent without the need to change gloves.

5. FootJoy WinterSof golf gloves

RRP £23.50 (pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes S-XL | Colours Black

FootJoy WinterSof winter golf gloves.

Foam fleece on the glove back adds warmth, which can be a godsend for those who feel the cold or suffer with arthritis in the fingers.

An extended cuff tucks up under a jacket or sweater sleeve to keep the cold at bay.

Sold in pairs.

6. Under Armour ColdGear Infrared golf gloves

£26 (pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes S-XXL | 

Under Armour ColdGear Infrared are among the best winter golf gloves.

If you love the feel of a leather glove but want added warmth for winter, Under Armour’s cold weather gloves are a great option.

An infrared pattern inside absorbs and retains heat to keep your hands warmer.

Sold in pairs.

7. Srixon Golf Rain gloves

RRP £19.99 (Pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes S-XL Colours Black

Srixon Golf Rain gloves are among the best winter golfer gloves.

Shane Lowry won The Open at Royal Portrush in horrendous conditions in 2019 but the Srixon staffer had no problems with grip during that wet final round as he swapped his normal Srixon Cabretta Leather glove for one of the brand's wet weather models.  

The quick-dry knit material guarantees optimum breathability, and microfibre suede palms ensure you won't lose grip in wet weather.

Flexible and comfortable, these high-quality rain gloves mean you can stay on your game, no matter how bad the weather.

A great wet weather glove should dry quickly and the Srixon certainly does thanks to the knit material. A great pair of gloves at a very good great price.

8. FootJoy RainGrip golf gloves

RRP £12 (single) or £19 (pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes S-XL | Colours Black

FootJoy RainGrip winter golf gloves.

The RainGrip can be brought individually or as a pair. We'd suggest that for a few extra quid it's worth getting the pair for even more wet weather grip.

FootJoy's autosuede knitted palm and index finger gives excellent wet or humid weather grip. The QuikDry material is also breathable and very durable, plus it won’t hold moisture for long to ensure you remain comfortable.

Includes a tee holder and removable ball marker on the back of the glove. We've tried plenty of rain and winter golf gloves over the years and the FootJoy RainGrip are among the very best.

9. Cobra StormGrip golf gloves

RRP £20 (pair) | VIEW OFFER
Sizes S-XL | Colours Black

Cobra StormGrip are one of the best pairs of winter golf gloves.

StormGrip suede in the palm provides maximum grip in wet conditions, while the tailored lightweight mesh cuff provides an optimal fit and feel. We particularly like that Cobra has made the index finger touch screen compatible, making it an ideal choice for those of us who use apps, a GPS device or watch around the course.

The DWR coating, a special moisture membrane, helps keep hands dry.

And if your hands still feel the cold

Zippo HeatBank 9s Hand Warmer

RRP £44.95 | VIEW OFFER

Colours: Silver, Black, Gold | Warranty: Two years

The Zippo HeatBank 9s Hand Warmer is ideal for golfers who play in colder conditions and rain.

Rechargeable electric hand warmers are a brilliant idea, and with more than 9,000 results from an Amazon search, there’s tons of options out there. If you want to stick with a brand name, lighter legends Zippo make a cracking model.

The 9s will not only keep your hands warm, it will also recharge your phone if you happen to run out of juice – a really useful option after spending several hours on the golf course. Expect six heat settings and a nine-hour run time.
