Guest Post: Golf Winter Checklist

One for my readers in the northern hemisphere.

As the cold weather fast approaches, now is the perfect time to get your winter golfing wardrobe ready for the big chill. From waterproofs to base layer clothing, there is a great range of golf clothing and accessories available to keep you warm and protected on the green this season; 

Base Layers 

It is worth investing in great base layers that can keep you warm this winter. Along with helping to regulate your body temperature in cold temperatures, base layers will also help to enhance your performance on the course, helping to unleash the power of your muscles and your stamina on the green. 

Add Layers

An inexpensive way of making the transition from summer to winter is simply by layering your clothing. Layer a golf jacket over your favourite shirt, and swap your golf shorts for a smarter (and warmer) pair of golf trousers. Online golf store Function18 have a great range of golf jumpers perfect for adding an extra warm layer to your golfing outfit. 


It goes without saying that autumn and winter are going to be filled with rainy days, so don’t forget to invest in some effective waterproof golf jackets and trousers. Golf clothing brands have incorporated a number of technical innovations to ensure you stay protected even when playing in the rain. Most golf jackets such as those from Galvin Green utilise cutting-edge technical materials such as GORE-TEX® fabrics to ensure great breathability to keep you comfortable as you play.

Hat and Gloves 

Don’t let the colder weather conditions affect your game this winter! Add a pair of gloves and a hat to your golfing bag this season to stay protected. These 2 key items will help retain body heat and keep your body well insulate. Specialist golfing gloves are available from many retailers, which include additional grips and non-slip grip designs to enhance your game.
