Best Golf Pants

Comfort is critical for peak performance on the course and finding the right golf pants is an integral part of that. More and more brands have recognized this over the years and, during that time, we have seen huge innovation take place in some of the designs and styles, features and technology on offer in some of the best golf trousers. The quality and fit of the trouser has also changed to allow players to fluidly strike through the golf ball without fear of restricted movement or that their pants may start to slide down their waist or split! Nowadays, there is simply no excuse for wearing a pair of pants on the golf course that compromises your game.

Much like the best golf tops, best golf polo shirts, and every other piece of golf apparel you can think of, golf pants have evolved into something much more in keeping with other areas of fashion, without compromising on functionality. Bearing that in mind, we've compiled a list of some of the best golf pants on the market, that will suit all types of golfers.

How we test golf apparel

When it comes to testing the best golf pants our comprehensive methodology revolves around, as you would expect, playing a lot of golf. We feel putting golf products to the test on the golf course, on the range and in practice is the best way to find out how usable and well-designed some pants are.

On that note, we feel it is particularly important to use all golf pants in different conditions, in the rain, in the snow and in the sunshine to ascertain how each performs. We also looked to use pants off the course as well to see how versatile they were in social situations or when wearing them to work. Importantly, every member of the Golf Monthly team is a regular golfer so we put golf pants to the test over a number of rounds. The final point we should mention is no manufacturer can buy a good review. This is because our testing team tells it how it is and we seek to be as insightful and honest as possible.
