Caps, Hats & Visors
Here at American Golf we dedicate an entire section for a widespread collection of headwear available in all gender options of Male, Female, Junior and Unisex. Headwear can arguably act as one of the most important accessories to a player when on the golf course. Depending on the type of hat, cap or visors, these headwear accessories can prevent the glaring sun from hindering your vision, keep your head shielded from possibly getting sunstroke and also keep you cool in the colder weathers. Our impressive headwear lineup features accessories from some of the leading golf brands such as Titleist, adidas Golf, Under Armour, Ping, Benross, Calvin Klein, Cobra Golf, Ellesse, FootJoy, Galvin Green, GOLFINO, Lacoste, Oscar Jacobson, PUMA Golf and Röhnisch.
Colour - Our vast collection of hats, caps & visors are provided in various colours to complete a player’s stylish golfing outfit. We therefore provide head accessories in colours such as Black, Blue, Green, Grey, Davy, Red and White.
Size - Depending on the model, our hats, caps & visors are either provided in a one size fit or separated into Small / Medium, Medium / Large and Large / X Large. While most of the headwear accessories operate a one size fits all, this is becoming an increasingly popular sizing method because the adjustable fastener situated at the back of the piece of headwear will fit any golfer perfectly, no matter what size their head is.
Hats - Most golf hats are in the form of a beanie style design which is ultimately to provide warmth and wind protection. The beanie hat style normally includes a cotton exterior and sometimes a fleeced lined inner shell to provide a golfer the comfort of keeping their head as warm and as shielded from the wind as possible. Other hats such as the bucket hat are designed for different weathers and are usually more suited in damp and wet conditions. The bucket hat features a wool/cloth design which naturally provides waterproof protection in the rain.
Caps - Golf caps are now the most preferred choice of headwear for all weathers as these are the most stylish and beneficial. This is down to the fact that the golf cap provides players with two essential benefits when playing in the better weather conditions. Any golf cap delivers foremost protection to a person’s eyes in front of the glaring sun. This also allows the golfer to be able to fully track their ball after their golf shot instead of losing it mid-flight because of the beaming sunlight. Caps also provide key protection to a player’s head and cover up any entrance for a golfer to gain sunstroke. Along with their highly fashionable element, the golf cap is therefore an indispensable accessory for any player.
Visors - Golf visors are of similar pedigree to the golf cap. Visors similarly provide crucial protection to a player’s eyes in the glaring sun, allowing their vision to not hinder and therefore provide them with the ability to fully track their golf ball after their shot. However, the visor differs slightly because it’s top is open and doesn’t cover the top of a golfer’s head. It therefore enables the heat to escape and provides a cooler feel for a player’s upper head and hairline. This can be extremely beneficial on those hot summer days when it is necessary to provide eye and visual protection but at the courtesy of a more breathable approach. The coverless feature can also act in providing a more suited fit as it prevents a person’s hair from being restricted. This can be favourable to a golfer with longer hair as it therefore isn’t trapped within the headwear.
Golf Hats, Caps & Visors Frequently Asked Questions
How to wash golf caps
Your golf cap can naturally accumulate oil, sweat, and suncream from your skin, as you’re typically going to wear it on a bright or warm day. The sweat wicking fabric will be doing its job, however nobody likes to see that their golf hat has developed discolouration or sweat marks. Here are some tips on how to wash your golf cap.
First, check if the colour will transfer or run should you introduce it to water. This can happen with hats that have dark dye, like blue or black, and especially newer pieces as the fabric won’t be as ‘weathered’ as a well-worn hat. To test the colour, take a clean white cloth and dampen it a little before gently rubbing the fabric with it. If the hat’s colour transfers onto the cloth, then don’t submerge your hat in water when washing it. We’ll shortly cover how to remove stains from golf caps, so if you find the colour runs with this test then skip ahead.
If your colour doesn’t run, it’s safe to begin washing your golf hat. We wouldn’t recommend putting it through a washing cycle in your washing machine, as the high temperatures and the perfumed detergents could damage the fabric and stitching. Instead, hand wash your golf hat in a clean bowl or basin with a gentle soap.
Fill your bowl or basin with lukewarm water and a gentle fabric soap. Work the soap up into a lather so the water has bubbles and leave the hat to soak in it for an hour or so. Whilst it soaks, swirl and stir the water from time to time to keep it circulating through the fabric. With your thumb and forefinger, rub at the hat band to work away any sweat marks. When you’re happy with the outcome, take the hat out of the water and rinse it under clean water until the run-off is clear and free of bubbles. Then, pat it dry with a hand towel and leave it to dry in an open space.
How to remove sweat stains from golf caps
If the sweat marks didn’t come out of your hat when you were washing it using our detailed method above or you’re worried about the colour running, then you need these tips on how to remove sweat stains without submerging the hat.
To clean just the sweatband and without affecting the surrounding fabric, make a solution out of baking soda and vinegar. Take measurements of four tablespoons of baking soda and about 60ml of water (or one-quarter of a cup). Mix this into a paste in a bowl and apply it to the sweatband using a toothbrush or teaspoon. Using small circular motions, rub the paste into the area, then leave the hat to sit with the paste on the band. Don’t leave this for longer than an hour - we’d recommend checking a patch after 45 minutes to see whether it’s lifted enough for your liking.
Before the hour is up, spray the sweatband with white wine vinegar and scrub the band a few more times before rinsing it with cold water. You may want to either trickle the water from the tap or pour a little on from a cup to avoid the need to submerge it. Then, pat it dry and leave it to dry in an open, ventilated area. Follow this same method for the sweat band of golf visors, too.
