Best Golf Headcovers
If you want to protect your pride and joys then one of the best golf accessories to consider purchasing is a good headcover.
Indeed not only is the protection invaluable, but there are some genuinely stunning designs knocking around the headcover scene these days, and you can add some real quality and colour to the top end of your bag.
Back in the day you used to buy your woods together and get a trio of cheap knitted socks to look after your woods, but we have truly moved on with many brands manufacturing cool and unique designs to give your golf bag some personality.
Acknowledging this below we have taken a look at some of the best golf headcovers out there below.
Best Golf Headcovers
Some brands just look classy whatever the product and this always seems to be the case with Titleist and their familiar logo. They do a couple of options with their headcovers - the jet black leather and these white and black ones.
The two-panel construction is 100 per cent leather and the 1, square on its side, and X are neat, retro and simple. These would complement any bag. Speaking of bags if you are a fan of Titleist then be sure to have a read of our best Titleist golf bags guide.
Stitch Golf Headcovers
This US company - they’re based in North Carolina - has been going for less than 10 years but have already become well known for some premium products with an outstanding attention to detail - ‘all the way down to the last stitch’.
Headcover wise they have a beautiful collection of knitted and leather offerings and an extremely popular Arnold Palmer collection. It’s not cheap but it is pretty special and they even have a classy headcover for your alignment stick.
PRG Originals Headcovers
This mother-and-son partnership came about when they thought there was a gap in the market for golf accessories and the very first PRG products were stocked in the Royal County Down pro shop where the advice was to focus on ‘clean high-quality products’.
These days they produce over 3.4 million customised items per year and their headcover options are vast and range from the sharp ‘Executive Classic’ to the mascot ones.
Seamus Golf Headcovers
You’re spoilt for choice here, they’ve got a headcover for every occasion and look. The original inspiration of their work came from a headcover from Royal Troon and, after designing a few prototypes, they knew they had something special and, before too long, they were stocking their products in places like Bandon Dunes.
The name comes from Seamus O’Reily, one of the family dogs and a fun-loving Irish terrier. It’s all highly original, uber stylish, hard wearing and each product is carefully designed, cut, sewn and packaged for each individual golfer.
Dormie Workshop Headcovers
These are really cool. Yes, they’re pricey but they really are something else to look at and admire. These quality leather products come in a variety of interesting categories which include some lovely US Open, Camo, Whiteout and Tiger Zone efforts.
And if you really want something special you can custom-fit your own headcover be it your driver, fairway, hybrid, putter, scorecard holder, yardage book or alignment stick cover. They’ll create a mock-up based on your request, you can tweak away and then see it come to life.
Scott Readman Headcovers
You see this name crop up a lot on social media with a lot of tour pros showing off their new Scott Readman equipment, be it world-class putters, covers or accessories, and gushing in their praise of his products. Readman learnt his craft as a young pro, refurbishing and repairing persimmon clubs, and he has now extended his craft to a world of original and exquisite designs from his base in Bristol in the UK.
One of the best novelty golf head covers out there, Daphne's will really liven up your golf bag with the emphasis on fun. There are over 175 designs to tickle your fancy and they’ve been going for over 40 years now.,
The name comes from the owner Jane Spicer’s mum and the pair of them set up their animal headcover business. Every product carries a lifetime guarantee and they’re as durable as they are fun.
If visiting the company’s website there is a Hall of Fame section for the men and women who rely on Daphne’s headcovers, the most notable being one Tiger Woods. When he won the Masters in 1997 they received a phone order for 30,000 Tiger headcovers plus an extra $30,000 to help get the order out quickly.
This is really smart with the embroidered two-tone black and white polyurethane cover and velour-padded interior. And it’s a fraction of the price compared to many of its contemporaries in this market.
The familiar Ping logo will appeal to fans of the brand and with their driver and woods being so popular they should be flying off the shelves. These also look great alongside many of the models in the current Ping bag range so check out our guide on the best Ping golf bags to complete the aesthetic.
Golf Iconic Headcovers
This Kobe Bryant cover comes from Golf Iconic’s Signature Series range and is more affordable, though not cheap, than some. They boast that all their headcovers are made from high quality materials and are professionally embroidered. The Serape range is amazingly colourful and is made from the blanket of the same name.
Again, you can design your own putter cover and it’s worth a visit to their website to have a play and see what you can come up with.
Fore Ewe Headcovers
This is a specialist knitted headcover and there are all manner of choices to fit your eye or favourite sports team and is also customisable if you know what you really want. They use 100 per cent wool yarn and it is spun and double waxed and the yarn is dyed to ensure it is rich and consistent.
This company was acquired by MacKenzie golf bags a couple of years ago so they can now provide customers with the option to co-ordinate the bag and headcover nicely.
We hope you enjoyed this guide on the best golf headcovers.
