Why you can trust Golf Monthly Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

How we test golf apparel

We test golf apparel (opens in new tab) in the same way we test all golf equipment, by using products properly. In relation to polo shirts this means putting them to the test out on the golf course to see if the design is well thought out, if it moves nicely throughout the swing, and simply if the polo is usable. Additionally, wearing it on the course in different conditions gives us an idea on breathability, warmth if needed, and looks. 

We would also wear the polos off the golf course as well because versatility to use a garment anywhere is a great way to get value for money. The final point we wanted to mention here is no manufacturer can pay for a good review because our thorough testing team tells it how it is. 

What to consider when buying a golf polo

As mentioned, there is a lot to think about when picking the right polo shirt for you. With that in mind, we have come up with several things for you to think about before purchasing.

Length - During the golf swing if you find your shirt coming untucked often, or your belly starts to show then you should think about a polo with a longer length. That way it will remain tucked in throughout the round and beyond.

Fit - Do you want a more loose fitting polo or something with more of an athletic fit? Slim fit or classic fit? Adidas makes polo shirts in a lot of different styles and sizes so have a think about how you want your polo to fit and be wary of getting something that isn't fitting correctly for you.

Sleeves - It doesn't sound that important, but a polo with sleeves too long or too short can be annoying. They should come to the middle of the upper arm, and the seam should align with the middle of the shoulders.

Fabric - As we have mentioned above, adidas uses a lot of different fabrics in polo shirts. From recycled polyester, to cotton to spandex, have a think about what fabric you want in your polo. 

Technology - Most brands make polo shirts that offer technology to help in a variety of ways. For example, adidas makes models to help the environment, help deal with sweat, keep you comfortable and dry as well. Some also offer UV protection and anti-microbial properties too, so it is worth thinking about what aspect you find important here. 

Design - Striped? Floral? An all-over print? adidas regularly pushes the boat out in terms of polo shirt design so whatever fashion sense you have, there will be a polo for you. It is just a case of finding a design you like the look of. We should also mention that you need to think about what you want to use the shirt for because from a design perspective, some are more versatile than others. If you want a polo to use on and off the course, we would recommend a more simple design. 

Price - Of course the price is always something people should think about. There is great value to be had with the models above but there are also more premium models for those wanting to spend a little more. Put simply, there is something for everyone.

FAQs

Are polo shirts okay for golf?

Many golf clubs require players to wear a polo shirt with a collar as part of the traditional clothing golf attire. This is enforced differently at different clubs and often players will find some clubs will let them play without traditional polo shirts. For that reason, it is wise to check each club's dress code before you play there. 

Are long sleeve polo shirts better than short sleeve?

That depends on the conditions you're playing in and your personal preferences. It goes without saying that long sleeve shirts are warmer and but will protect your arms from the sun, so are better for sunny days or colder days on the course. The downside of these shirts is that they can hang around your arms, which some golfers may feel constricts their movements. 

Is it good to wear moisture-wicking golf polo shirts?

Absolutely, particularly if you're playing in hotter climates. Moisture-wicking technology can help to keep you cool on the course and regulate your body temperature. This works by drawing sweat and water from your skin and transfer sweat to the outer layers of the shirt, to evaporate the sweat faster.
