2017 Hat’s, Caps & Visors

Golf caps, hats and visors can be worn for a variety of reasons, whether it be fashion, function or just to look a little more like the pros. But one thing caps, hats and visors excel at is helping players enjoy a round in comfort and style.

This buying guide will help all golfers better understand the importance of wearing headwear on the golf course, while also offering expert opinion on the best kind of golf headwear for the greens.


Golf caps

Golf caps are the most worn headwear on the greens, and for a variety of reasons. Able to withstand light to moderate wind and rain, a regular golf cap will keep the sunlight out of eyes on low-bearing, cloudy days, while some caps can draw out perspiration to keep the scalp free from sweat.

It is advisable to look for golf caps which are one size fits all. This type of cap will fit virtually all head shapes. Golf caps with water-resistance, such as the PING Waterproof Cap, are strongly recommended as this means you will stay warm and protected in rain and snow.

Other excellent features which need to be considered when looking for golf caps is how good the moisture-wicking properties are. Caps with this function will push out perspiration as it transpires on the head and force it out through the top of the cap, leaving the head feeling cool, dry and comfortable. Most golf caps have some form of this.

A selection of the best golf caps available now include the Under Armour Headline Cap, Callaway Golf Liquid Metal Cap, PING Tour Light Cap, Under Armour Jordan Spieth Tour Cap, Oscar Jacobson Franc Cap, Wilson Staff Tour Mesh Cap, PUMA Golf Flexifit Fitted Cap, Nike Golf Classic 99 Cap, TaylorMade Casual Cap and GOLFINO Micro Earflap Ladies Cap, among many others.

Golf visors

A golf visor is best described as the middle ground between bucket hat and golf cap. Visors are perfect for eye protection against sunlight, and can help you see better during a round. However, in wet weather conditions, visors should not be a golfers’ first choice.

Visors are ultra-stylish and very comfortable, but are not the best choice when it comes to keeping the head warm and dry.

A great selection of golf visors include the GOLFINO Printed Cable Ladies Visor, Daily Sports Magic Ladies Visor, Callaway Golf Clip Ladies Visor, Palm Grove Ladies Visor, Daily Sports Miracle Ladies Visor, GOLFINO Cable Striped Ladies Visor, Titleist Ball Marker Visor Titleist Pink Ribbon Ladies Visor, Green Lamb Darcy Diamante Ladies Visor and Titleist Sports Performance Ladies Visor.


Bucket hats

Bucket hats can be worn in any weather condition, helping to keep the head nicely protected from rain, sleet and snow. They are made from waterproofing materials, and can offer a great alternative to golf caps when it comes to blocking out the sun on particularly warm days. It’s a good idea to get good quality bucket hats, as these are the ones which will keep you dry and warm without degrading in too quickly.

Bucket hats are rarely ever one size fits all like caps, so before picking one up, make sure you know your head size. It saves disappointment down the line, and also the headwear works a lot better if it fits correctly.

A selection of bucket hats we have available include the Titleist StaDry Bucket Hat.


Golf Beanies

Often made from polyester or cotton, golf beanies protect the head from cold weather on chilly mornings. Beanies vary from caps, visors, and bucket hats in that they help keep the sides of the head warm and snug, especially the ears. A good beanie hat is ideal for all golfers, as it helps them stay warm and healthy in cold weather.

Beanie hats are tight-fitting and snug. They don’t muffle the world around you, which makes them perfect for sport. They remain strong in wind and can be worn on and off the golf course.
