Have fun and look stylish on the golf course with the help of these apparel brands
Golf has a reputation for being a sport favored by the older generation, but there’s a noticeable uptick in its popularity among youth as celebrities like Joshua Garcia, Daniel Padilla, and Lee Sung-kyung continue to show their love and interest in the sport. As a result, there have been more brands reinventing their golfwear collections or starting up altogether to meet the spiked demand for fashionable golf apparel. Brands like DAYTODAY Athleisure also frequently show how versatile their pieces are by posting how you can use them for different sports like golf and tennis.
With that, we’ve gathered five international brands—some new and some old—that we trust to deliver comfortable and quality activewear fit for big swings at the golf course.
As expected, Nike is included in this list for its golf sportswear collections for men and women, which includes a quality lineup of tops, bottoms, shoes, and hats. But for a more stylish look on the course, we recommend you browse Nike’s collection with lifestyle brand Malbon Golf, wherein you’ll find edited Dri-FIT polos, skirts, jackets, vests, and more.
Adidas is another worthy addition to this list for its well-established and pro-athlete-approved golf apparel. Here, you’ll find everything you’d need for training sessions or competition day, from performance-enhancing footwear to zip-up jackets. We particularly recommend the Ultimate365 Tour Pleated 15-Inch Golf Skort and Adicross x Burning Cart Layer Polo Shirt.
3. Manors Golf
A self-described contemporary twist to the style and sophistication of a bygone era, London-based Manors Golf undoubtedly puts up an effort to make golf style trendy among the younger generation. This brand further asserts itself in the public consciousness by partnering with relevant personalities and opening pop-up stores across the globe, such as in Seoul in 2022. However, the quality of the brand’s products speaks for itself, with pieces like its Cable Knit Vest and Houndstooth Trousers among the standouts.
Of course, Ralph Lauren’s high-performance golf clothing brand RLX shouldn’t be missing from the conversation of functional style on the course. For womenswear, we recommend pieces like the Hybrid Funnelneck Sweater Jacket and Quilted Cotton Drawstring Short. For menswear, we recommend the Water-Repellent Jacket and Big Pony Mesh Polo Shirt – All Fits.
5. Eastside Golf
Founded in just 2019, Eastside Golf’s mission is to raise awareness about golf among the youth and non-golfers alike by appealing to their sense of style and culture. With that, we recommend checking out the Jordan x Eastside Golf collection. While mostly sold out at the moment, there are still cardigans, shirts, shorts, jackets, and pants available for purchase. We also recommend their Staple Pieces and Red Clay Staple Polo.
