Best Golf Face Masks
Many brands in the world of golf responded to the Coronavirus pandemic with great positivity and one particular avenue many went down was to create golf face masks that could be used just about anywhere. Importantly, technologies used in other areas of golf, like apparel for example, were brought over so that now we have many face masks that are lightweight, breathable, comfortable and often look good too.
Well, acknowledging that below we have put together a guide on some of our favourites. Alternatively we also recommend taking a look at our guide on the best golf snoods as well if you would rather go down that route, or maybe some of the best golf accessories as well.
Best Golf Face Masks
Mizuno Golf Face Mask
The Mizuno Face Cover is made with soft, breathable, high performance athletic fabric. It comfortably hooks around your ears for an easy fit and feels comfortable too because the fabric is soft. You can also get it in five colors and the presence of the Mizuno logo adds a premium touch.
FOCO 3-Pack Face Coverings
Want to take the chance to show your team support on your face mask? Well FOCO has you covered with adult and youth sizes of masks that have NBA, NFL, NHL, Nascar and College teams printed on. In the three-pack you get an assortment of designs as you can see above. The fabric is also stretchy and the ear straps do the same for easy, comfortable wearing.
adidas Face Mask
A face mask made with 97% recycled polyester, adidas has made a quality performer here. The fabric is soft and breathable whilst also being washable, reusable, and above all else, comfortable. It comes in three colors, red, white and black.
Under Armour Sportsmask
Designed for all day or wear or when playing sports, this mask has a water resistant outer shell along with an interior which has had an anti-microbial treatment. It is also made from Under Armour's Iso-Chill fabric which is often present in some of the best golf polo shirts and apparel Under Armour manufactures. Finally it also has stretchy ear loops and a soft, adjustable nose bridge to keep you comfortable.
Original Penguin Fabric Face Masks
As always with Penguin products, you will stand out on the golf course with these face masks which are made from cotton and come in a variety of cool designs. They are also reusable and have a handy little filter compartment.
BOSS Face Mask
Designed in pure cotton for breathability, these face masks are detailed with a BOSS logo flag and soft ear loops for everyday comfort. We like the simple but classy design and the fact it is a three-pack with different colours only adds to the benefit here.
New Era Golf NFL Sideline Face Mask
Love golf and love the NFL? Well with this mask you can combine the two by showing your team support with the logo on the side. The face mask comes with one filter for enhanced protection, elastic ear straps, and adjustable tubes to help control size and tension, and a sewn-in nose wire for support.
Prostate Cancer UK Face Mask
Spread awareness, not viruses, wear this face mask with pride knowing you're raising the awareness of this deadly disease whilst protecting yourself from viruses. It's made from cotton and polyester, making it skin-friendly and machine washable, meaning it's re-useable. There's even an integrated pocket so you can add a filter if you wish.
Puma Golf Ladies Face Mask
Stay protected in true Puma style with these pink face masks. With two washable and reusable cloth face masks featuring three layers of protection and adjustable straps, these masks are designed to keep you cool and protected.
How to choose a golf face mask
There are several factors to consider when buying a face mask and let's take a look t those here.
Comfort - This is the most important factor to consider when buying a face mask. As it is going to be worn on your face and around your ears the fabric must feel soft and and comfortable. Not only that but it shouldn't feel restrictive and give a good degree of stretch too.
Design - Face masks are a great way of mixing things up whether it be with a patterned design, or maybe you want to show your team support in the NBA, NFL College and so on. That being said you can also get designs that are more neutral if needed, such as the Mizuno or BOSS designs above. Whatever you are after, there is a design for you.
Value - Of course there are face masks at different price points and you should obviously consider how much you are willing to spend on a face mask. But another aspect to consider here is value in relation to how many masks you get. Many of the models above come as a single mask, or as a three-pack so it is worth considering if you want more for your money with a multi-pack.
