We take a look at some of our favourite hats to play golf in, ranging from caps to beanies and bucket hats.

Best Golf Hats

Choosing the right hat when you are heading to, or at the golf course doesn’t sound like that much of an important decision but we would argue it is. This is because no longer are hats just something to tip when we hit a good shot, nor are they just a fashion statement.

No these days the best golf hats have been designed specifically to deal with the sun, the rain, the wind, the cold and just about every other weather variable you can think of. Importantly, modern day hats have become functional as well as fashionable.

So bearing in mind the huge selection of choice, and the various styles of hat out there, below we have taken a look at some of our favourite golf hats – from caps, to bucket hats, to beanies.

Additionally if you want to narrow your focus a bit more have a read of our best golf caps, best golf beanies and best golf snoods guides.
