Best Golf Belts

Looking and feeling the part can give you the edge when it comes to your performance and one often forgotten part of a great golfing outfit is the belt. Not only should a belt give a comfortable fit and help keep the pants or shorts where they should be, but the belt is also a chance to make a fashion statement too, as shown by some of the models below. Whether you are after a leather design, a stretchy woven model, or something to help you stand out, there is plenty of choice out there. It is also important for you to think about what material you want your belt to be made out of because these days you can get polyester, leather, polyurethane and other materials in belt design and each do different things. 

Speaking of which we have created this post to give you an idea of some of the best golf belts out there. From Puma, to FootJoy, to Galvin Green, there is something for everyone. Also if you want more buying advice, we recommend checking out a couple of the other posts below to make sure you have the perfect clothing and equipment setup.

Requires a bit of wearing in

This highly fashionable belt, which is available in six colors, will not only make you look the part but it is also made to last. It has a nice stretch fit for comfort whilst the leather tipping and chrome buckle add a touch of class to proceedings.

Additionally not only is there the traditional design but there is also a striped design which looks great as well. The metal buckle and brown leather tabs complete what is a very smart look that can be just as easily worn off the course as on it. The braided material design does away with the need for traditional buckle holes and as such, finding the perfect fit is incredibly easy. The different color combinations are all very simple and classic however, they do require a small amount of coordination with the rest of your outfit.

The entire package just feels totally premium and will work well with a variety of pants and shorts combinations. The large buckle can be off-putting to some but we didn't think it was that much of an issue.

Can be difficult to push through material at times

Some braided belts we've tested provide too much give and not enough support but this one strikes the perfect balance of offering a small amount of stretch if you're inbetween waist sizes while keep your pants at the level you want them. 

It's really quick to fasten and we appreciated the small touches like the leather sections and the metal buckle with the debossed UA wordmark. All in all, this is a stylish and functional golf belt that comes in four colors to match any outfit you desire.

Also if you are a fan of Galvin Green, make sure you take a look at our guide on the best golf waterproofs (opens in new tab) because the brand makes some of the highest quality models anywhere in golf.

Skull design will put some off

The entire G/FORE brand is based upon the idea of standing out from the crowd and the belts continue that ideology. This continues this season with the Killer T's models which are made from durable nylon and leather, and also come with am embroiled skull design too. No doubt this skull design will put some off but for those that aren't this is an excellent belt.

More premium feeling models on this list

Excellent value is on offer here as per usual with Inesis products. It proved to be comfortable to wear on and off course and looked smart. Made from 54% Elastodiene, 46% Polypropylene, this belt has a stretchy material which helps provide a perfect fit and comfort throughout the golf swing. So too does the lack of eyelets. Instead of these the braided strap has eight elastic strands for the prong to be forced through to allow for a custom-fit – and it does require a fair bit of force at times. 

Comes in five color variations – three of which are in solid colors (petrol blue, black, dark chocolate, navy blue and grey) but there are also two multi-colored patterned Inesis models as well.

Easy to cut down

Lemonade design really looks cool

The white reversible belt won't be for some

As someone who hasn't worn a leather belt for years this belt was amazingly comfortable. This sounds a bit odd given that it's a belt but my memory of leather belts is one of something that rides into you and never quite fits, hence the move to more braided options. 

The design here is fun with a collection of summery images; glasses of lemonade and fruits and it's a robust offering that has a straightforward pin closure. On the other side is a plain white which is golf's version of Marmite – some love a white belt, others aren't fans. But the navy side is cool, which fits in with the Penguin brand, and the beauty here is quite how easy it was to cut it down to size. There are very welcome tear-off instructions and it's brilliantly simple.

Farah Sadun Webbed Belt

Specifications

Colors: 3 (White, Black, Blue)
Material: Polyester, leather

Reasons to buy

+
Very smart belt buckle design
+
Webbed belt has very good stretch

Reasons to avoid

-
Prong of the buckle can be fiddly to pass through the material

We have always been a fans of the webbed style belt due to its ability to stretch and provide comfort. The Sadun Belt is no exception, as the 4-way stretch and one size fit gave unbelievable comfort out on the course. Along with the stretch, the smart ‘F’ belt buckle design was very eye catching, with the belt loop ensuring that the material remained tight and didn’t flap around. 

Although the belt buckle is very stylish, it is a tad fiddly when it comes to pushing the prong through the material and it requires some oomph to do this successfully. The only other negative is the label that is attached to the strip of leather behind the belt buckle. Because it was rather large, it was necessary to trim it down, but this proved very fiddly.

How we test golf equipment

Golf Monthly's testing procedure (opens in new tab) for all golf gear revolves around being as methodical and concise as possible. This means using the products out on the golf course and in the case of belts we actually used them off the golf course as well because using a belt every day is a good way of testing for durability, usability, versatility and so on. 

The entire Golf Monthly testing team plays golf regularly which means products regularly get used for several trips to the course, driving range or practice facility, and it should also be acknowledged that no manufacturer or brand can buy a good review. This is because our team tells it how it is. 

What to consider when buying a golf belt

What factors should you consider when buying a golf belt? Let's take a look.

Material - The first thing you should consider is what do you want the belt to be made out of? No longer are belts just made out of leather these days as nylons, polyesters and other materials and fabrics are used. Each of them create a unique fit, feel and look so knowing what material you want will help narrow down your search.

Size - Importantly most of the models above are one size fits all but sometimes brands adopt more specific sizing measurements so this is definitely something to be aware of.

Colors - As you can see from the key info sections on a lot of the models above, you can now get a golf belt in pretty much any color so it is a case of a) picking one you like the look of, and b) making sure the color will suit the pants and shorts you use for golf. Do not pick a color that only works with one outfit because you want to get more for your money here.

Budget - Finally be aware of how much you want to spend on a belt. If you want to go for a premium design there are models from J Lindeberg and G/FORE which have got you covered. Whereas if you want a more value-conscious option then there are models like the one from Inesis too.

FAQ's

What is the purpose of a golf belt?

Regardless of your golfing style when it comes to pants, trousers or shorts, a good belt remains an important part of your golf outfit. This not just because they are functional and help keep your pants and polo in place, but a belt can also elevate a golf outfit by looking more classy or with a touch of flair.

What color should your golf belt be?

The simple answer here is whatever color belt you are comfortable wearing. There are people who say don't put those colors together and other such rules but if you want to wear a traditional black or brown belt, you should. The same can be said for those who want to wear a belt to stand out. Whatever you want to wear, do so as this is entirely up to different people. If it was up to us, we always try and get out belt to match or suit the pants or shorts we are wearing on the day.
