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, in this guide we have put together a list of some of our favorites. 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.

How to choose a golf face mask

As golf face masks come in a variety of different shapes, styles and materials, there is a lot to think about when purchasing the right golf mask for you. From comfort to protection, we've set out a few key considerations below that you might want to take into account when purchasing your next golf mask. 

1. Protection

Ultimately, a mask is designed with the purpose of protecting you and those around you, so when picking your mask you need to get yourself one that is going to offer that level of protection. That means buying a mask that is thick, but is still made from a breathable material. You may also want to purchase a mask that has a space for a filter that can be inserted or removed at your desire. 

2. 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 comfortable. Not only that but it shouldn't feel restrictive and give a good degree of stretch too. 

3. 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. 

4. 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.

What is the most important thing to think about when buying a golf mask?

You need to think about comfort and protection on offer in the mask. As you'll be wearing it for prolonged periods of time, it is best to have one that is made of a comfortable material, is adjustable and does not itch on your face or back of your ears. Protection is also vital and your mask should be able to provide you with ample protection from airborne viruses. 

Do golf courses make you wear masks?

That depends on the rules of the course. Some golf clubs will require players to wear masks when inside the club while others do not. It is always wise to check with the club before you arrive for your round and remember to come prepared with your mask. 

Can you wear snoods on the golf course?

You can wear snoods on the golf course, and particularly when it gets cold, some of the snoods featured on our best golf snoods guide can be very handy to help you keep warm!
