Best Golf Hoodies

Golf's fashion debate has been stirred up considerably by hoodies starting to make an appearance on the golf course. Tyrrell Hatton for example won the 2020 BMW PGA Championship in a hoodie that made our list of the best golf tops (opens in new tab) too. Collin Morikawa has also been spotted wearing a hoodie in competition and Justin Thomas even wore one during the 2021 Open Championship. Therefore hoodies are becoming more visible in golf.

However, there is a balance that must be adhered to when it comes to golf hoodies and thankfully more and more brands are designing garments that not only look good and modern on the golf course, but can be used off it too. Many are also simple and finished in classic colors to make sure they are acceptable in all manner of golf clubs as well. The game of golf is changing and to make sure you be a part of it, below we have taken a look at some of our favorite golf hoodies. Additionally for more buying advice we also recommend taking a look at our guides on the best golf jumpers (opens in new tab) or best golf waterproofs (opens in new tab).

The model worn out on Tour by adidas professionals Tyrrell Hatton (opens in new tab) and Collin Morikawa (opens in new tab), the Cold-Rdy Hoodie from adidas is one of the best models out right now and is a clear example of what innovative and refreshing golf apparel can be. We think the best golf hoodies have their own style and this model is a case in point. It is a smart, comfortable and soft garment with Cold.Rdy technology which insulates and manages moisture to make sure you are prepared to play. It features a jersey-lined hood with a drawcord along with a slight droptail hem for a modern finish.

Full zip makes it more of a jacket than a hoodie

The Under Armour Storm Daytona Full Zip hoodie is a comfortable, stylish and practical garment for use on and off the course. It's been designed with a comfortable fit, while being breathable and water repellent at the same time. The double knit Storm Fleece fabric means it's excellent for keeping you warm in windy conditions and the open hand pockets are a nice warm place to keep your hands during a round of golf. Available in four stylish colors, this is a hoodie that will go nicely with pretty much any other outfit.

Cheaper hoodies can be found on this list

The clue is in the name here, Cloud. TravisMathew looked to create the softest hoodie possible, as soft as a cloud, and did so thanks to a combination of cotton, spandex, and a material called modal which is a bio-based fabric that is made from spinning beech tree cellulose. As a result it is incredibly soft and we love the fact it can be used anywhere because of the neutral design. The five different colors offer something a little unique as well.

One of our favorite looking hoodies is the Lightweight model from FootJoy. The three colors look fantastic and it is a premium design thanks to double stitched seams, and the antimicrobial finish helps to eliminate odor. The pockets are also useful but the star of the show here is the comfort. Made from 100% polyester it is so soft that at no point do you want to take it off.

Long toggles might get in the way during swing

We love this brand new mid layer style which takes on a more lifestyle inspired silhouette. We recently used this in a range session and despite being slightly chilly, the warmCELL technology, and soft fabric kept us warm so I could focus on my practice. The raglan sleeves and hemline give a comfortable fit and another thing I noticed was the versatility because I have been using this hoodie everywhere of late.

The Fleece Popover Hoodie is brand new this season from Original Penguin. Perfect for range days or relaxing in off the golf course, this hoodie has a soft brushed interior, drawstring hood and a handy front kangaroo pocket. The soft fleece provides plenty of insulation, given its light nature it doesn’t look like it’s going to keep you toasty but it’s amazingly warm.

Water resistant, not waterproof

We’re at a stage now where there are numerous golf hoodies on the market to be able to compare against one another, as this guide shows. This lightweight and extremely fashionable offering from Peter Millar is up there with the very best of them.

The Flex Adapt looks great everywhere and the flex fabric is something you notice the moment you pull it on and take a swing, so even though it’s a tailored fit you can scrap any worries that you’ll be in any way restricted as you play. It’s extremely lightweight, too. Again, this is down to the material that’s used – it’s not heavy or baggy in the slightest and it folds up nice and small, meaning it takes up next to no space in your golf bag.

Quite a high collar

The Under Armour Storm SweaterFleece Hoodie is a good example of making hoodies understated and therefore perfect for what could be the strictest of dress codes. It offers a stylish and casual aesthetic without limiting the technical specifications which often differentiates Under Armour from every other brand. Constructed with Under Armour Storm tech, the hoodie is water repellent and retains excellent levels of breathability. The soft brushed fleece interior adds to the comfort. We also think it works perfectly as a midlayer, and an outer layer so it is incredibly versatile.

This adidas hoodie keeps you warm in cool conditions with its COLD.RDY design. There's a cinch the drawcord on the hood for extra protection and the comfy cotton blend has built-in stretch for full range of motion. We think it offers good value because it is so versatile, and the combination of warmth, comfort, and use of recycled polyester really elevates this garment in our eyes.

Some may feel the hood is a distraction

The Trapp hoodie is more likely to appeal to a new generation of golfer. This is not to say today's discerning player won't give wearing one some thought, only hooded tops will never win everyone over. We, however, are not one of those that needs to be convinced. Golf, after all, is a sport, and we love the athletic look - plus it's smart. The paneled hood has a contemporary, tailored look and carries vertical Oscar Jacobson branding. Meanwhile, the inner fleece and moisture wicking outer layer guarantees comfort and performance, which is enhanced by the fit of the hoodie itself. In other words, it may be a hoodie, but it's tailored perfectly for the golf swing. There are three eye-catching colors to choose from, including navy/black and black/teal.

Greyson is a growing name in the world of premium golf apparel and with models like the Koko it isn't hard to see why. It has a minimalist design that has a premium blend of wool and cashmere to give a casual, soft and comfortable feel. We also like the ribbed sleeves and lightness of the garment too. The left cuff has contrast tipping which is a signature design feature of Greyson products.

G/Fore's popular Luxe Mid-layer has now been given the hoodie treatment in this smart and clean golf offering. The 2-ply self-hood provides added warmth and comfort out on the course and uses the same soft-touch fabric as the rest of the garment. This hoodie is also moisture-wicking thanks to G/Fore's Dri-Release fabric that makes this a great hoodie to be wearing if you get caught in a quick shower on course. With an RRP of £135 it's on the more expensive side, but you can feel the quality of material and fit make this well worth that price tag.

It's soft and stretchy and offers exceptional warmth in cold conditions thanks to Galvin Green's Insula Fabric. While it stands out for it's warmth, this is also a very breathable garment and the built-in air chambers store body warmth to keep your body temperature regulated throghout a round. We love the logo styling on the front and all together this presents a stylish and practical hoodie out on course.

It has been made using a unique fabric which is both wind and water resistant - while retaining that soft stretch jersey handle with a high degree of flexibility.

Softer feeling hoodies out there

Made from 90% polyester and 10% spandex, the Wanderlust Hoodie is designed to offer maximum comfort and added warmth. The fabric is quick-drying, wrinkle resistant and offers a 4-way stretch that is great for the golf swing. The understates design and two colorways make it ideal to transition seamlessly from the course to the concrete.

How we test golf apparel

We test golf apparel in the same way we test all golf equipment (opens in new tab), by using products properly. In relation to hoodies this means putting them to the test out on the golf course to see if the design is well thought out, if the garment interferes with the swing in any way, and simply if the hoodie is actually usable. We would also wear the hoodies off the golf course as well because versatility to use a garment anywhere is a great way to get value for money. The final point we wanted to mention here is no manufacturer can pay for a good review because our thorough testing team tells it how it is. 

What to consider when buying golf hoodies

There are several factors to consider when it comes to buying a golf hoodie and here we have listed them.

Design - What we mean here is what kind of hoodie design are you after? Do you want a hoodie to keep you warm in the winter months or one that stretches and acts more as a kind of mid-layer? Do you want a design that can be used anywhere, or a smart offering that would work at any golf club? Understanding this and knowing what you are after will therefore narrow your search nicely. 

Material - Linking with the above point, knowing what you are after will help you decide what material to go for. The fleece models above will keep the cold at bay whilst
