Bearing that in mind, below we have taken a look at some of the best golf pants.

A staple model out on Tour – one that also featured in our best golf trousers guide – these adidas Go-To’s are designed with extra stretch in the waistband for full freedom of movement. The moisture-absorbing fabric also helps keep you dry for the days play too.
The classic five-pocket design gives you plenty of room for tees, ball markers and a score card.
We should also mention how adidas continues to develop its environmentally sustainable golf apparel and these trousers fit into that as they are made with PRIMEGREEN: a series of high-performance recycled materials.
Puma Jackpot 5 Pocket Pants
Puma’s Jackpot 5 Pocket pants have proved very popular for a while now and it is easy to see why thanks to the combination of style, comfort, and wearable sportswear technology.
This new model has a lighter mesh stretch waistband along with a silicone Puma Golf logo gripper tape to keep things comfortable in the waist area. Puma’s DryCELL technology is also present which wicks moisture away well.
J. Lindeberg Ellott Pants
Updated for 2021, the Ellott pants from J. Lindeberg are one of the best models on the market right now.
From a functional stand point, the new Micro Stretch fabrication gives the pants a high degree of stretch, breathability, comfort and a lightweight feel.
The invisible DWR coating means that rain will bead off the fabric and dry quickly, while the different colours provide a good selection of choice.
Under Armour 5-Pocket Pants
Next up in our list are the 5-Pocket pants from Under Armour.
Mobility and flexibility are unrestricted largely thanks to three features; the high performance fabric blend of polyester and elastane, the stretch waistband, abd a streamlined fit to reduce drag.
Going back to the fabric, it is soft and wrinkle-resistant, giving a smart and stylish look. It is also designed to wick sweat away.
Finally we should also mention the fit because it was spot on. We thought they were just tight enough around the legs to not flap around, but equally not so tight that it feels like you’re playing in skinny jeans!
Nike Flex Golf Pants
Transition from the course to the concrete seamlessly with these Nike Flex Player Pants. Featuring a timeless and classic look, they provide a good amount of stretch thanks to the Flex fabric and the slightly tacky texture on the inner waistband keeps the shirt tucked in nicely.

The Tailored Jackpot Pants from Puma have the ideal combination of being slim fitting and tapered while still being stretchy and comfortable to play golf in.
During our testing the stretched polyester fabric was excellent because it moved well especially when bending down to read a putt or get the golf ball out of the hole. In no way did the trouser hinder our movement throughout multiple testing rounds.
Fit around the waist was ideal and the waistband offers plenty of forgiveness. The inside of the waistband also features a silicone gripper tape to keep the shirt tucked in which is a nice added feature.
