We take a look at some of the best men's golf shirts currently on the market.
Best Men’s Golf Shirts
The world of golf shirts has changed a lot over the past few years in terms of design, technology, construction and performance.
Nowadays, the best men’s golf shirts find a way to be comfortable, light, and also look great on the fairways too.
Gone are the days where we would have to wear heavy, cumbersome and uninspiring golf attire because most brands now make modern, cutting-edge designs to help us purely focus on our games whilst looking good. New technology has risen to the fore in terms of moisture wicking, comfort and also making sure the swing is unhampered by the shirt.
This is where the selections below come in. From FootJoy to TravisMathew we have taken a look at some of our favourite men’s golf shirts that will seek to achieve everything we mentioned above without breaking the bank.
Best Men’s Golf Shirts
FootJoy Camo Floral Print Polo Shirt
FootJoy continues to innovate and create apparel and shoes designed to help players get the most from their games, regardless of the conditions, and in the new collections, FootJoy has attempted to inject an element of sunshine and positivity into golf and its apparel. Chief among which is this Camo Floral Print design.
The polo, we are sure you agree, has a unique and trendy design that is sure to get people talking, but it is not just about the look.
It has been created with ProDry stretch fabric, which is an exclusive FootJoy creation designed to keep you cool and dry for the duration of your round of golf and beyond. The polyester and spandex blend gives a comfortable and lightweight feel that doesn’t hinder movement between or during shots, and you don’t have to fret about the sun either because it provides SPF 30 UV protection as well.
Under Armour Iso Chill Polo Shirt
With the Baltimore-based Under Armour brand, style and performance combine in the best way, with the latest iteration of the immensely popular Iso-Chill polo being a case in point. It continues to refine the Iso-Chill polo design year after year, with the 2021 creation offering top-notch usability.
This is largely thanks to the lightweight fabric’s nylon fibres that disperse heat, making it cool to the touch right from when you first put it on. The material also wicks sweat, dries quickly, and has built-in UPF 50+ sun protection to boot.
In terms of comfort the 4-way stretch allows the player to move seamlessly and there is also a unique sleeve construction too. Importantly the Iso Chill range has a number of designs and looks too so you can find the one for you.
adidas Go-To Polo Shirt
Adidas is a brand that regularly pushes the limit on technology and innovation when it comes to its products and one particular avenue the brand has gone down of late is sustainability.
One such initiative is Primegreen which is high-performance apparel made from recycled ingredients, with the aim of ending plastic waste. This is where this polo comes in as it is made from 89% recycled content.
It also looks good and has versatility as a huge plus point too because it is the kind of polo that can be used absolutely anywhere, without compromising on performance when the time comes to hit golf shots.
Nike Dry Vapor Stripe Graphic Polo Shirt
A shirt worn by several Nike staff players out in the professional world of golf, this striped polo is one of the best Nike golf shirts on the market.
Not only does it perform well and look great, but the versatility means it is a shirt for lots of social situations. As the name would suggest, it helps keep you dry with the Dri-FIT technology wicking sweat away and the back of the collar is perforated for breathability which is a nice touch.
Puma Cloudspun Gamma Polo Shirt
Puma continues to build on the immensely successful Cloudspun line of polo shirts with the new Gamma. Available in a couple of colours, it has a unique and modern design made from the ultra-soft Cloudspun circular knit fabric. Not only that but it is moisture wicking and has 4-way stretch for enhanced mobility.
It is such a good design that Rickie Fowler has worn it out on Tour as has Bryson DeChambeau who is not the type of player to take his golfing attire for granted.

Callaway All Over Mini Printed Floral Polo Shirt
If you want to stand out from the crowd at your local club then look no further than this floral polo shirt from Callaway. Perfect for those hot days on the course, it is packed with technology too such as Callaway’s Swing Tech which provides the wearer with noticeably less restriction and extra stretch to fully maximise your range of motion on each and every swing. It is also made with Opti-Dri fabric which allows moisture to be transferred away from the skin and is also highly breathable which ensures you remain dry and comfortable and able to concentrate on your game.
Ping Frequency Polo Shirt
Ping has always been a brand to reference it’s prestigious and significant history and in 2021 it has done the same in its apparel with the new Frequency Polo.
The shirt features an inspired design based on the impact sound of the original Ping 1-A putter through its premium jacquard pattern of this unique sound wave. It clearly shows Ping has attempted to offer something unique and outside the box, whilst also delivering on performance elements the golfer finds important.
For example the polo sits in Ping’s Sensor Platform with Sensor Cool technology, which seeks to avoid discomfort by drawing perspiration away from the body keeping you dry.
Galvin Green Marcus Polo Shirt
The new Marcus polo from Galvin Green is an easy inclusion on our list of the best golf polos. It makes use of the acclaimed Ventil8+ technology to offer lightweight comfort with exceptional moisture managing capabilities. We think it also looks great too thanks to the contrast shoulder panels and the stripe detailing on the sleeves, both of which give a unique and stylish look.
The fabrics used are light, soft, comfortable and enable you to perform to your best ability round after round. To make sure you’re protected from the summer heat, this item is also rated with a UV Protection level of 20+.
Under Armour Playoff Polo 2.0 Shirt
Another excellent Under Armour product and one of our favourite men’s golf shirts.
The soft anti-pick, anti-pill fabric is extremely breathable & lightweight, the moisture management is fantastic, the anti-odour technology prevents the growth of odour-causing microbes so you can smell fresh constantly, and finally the variety and choice of aesthetic design is mind-boggling.
Mizuno Quick Dry Mirage Polo Shirt
Mizuno’s premium polo, the Mirage has a dynamic pattern created by Mizuno’s sublimated printing process which creates a two-tone style that looks awesome.
It features a soft to the touch move-tech fabric which ensures comfort in any position, and the quick-dry technology absorbs and transfers moisture away from the body nicely.
TravisMathew Heater Polo Shirt
A shirt designed to perform in extreme conditions, the Heater is made with TravisMathew’s cutting-edge Prestige Prestige Pure Performance fabrications for a comfortable feel and 4-way stretch.
Lightweight, stretchy and quick drying, it has a lot going for it, and we also enjoy the modern looking aesthetic. It was worn by Jon Rahm to win the US Open and it also features in our guide on the best designer golf clothing as brands like TravisMathew have sought to break into the golfing market over the past few years.
Original Penguin Floral Conversational Polo Shirt
Original Penguin may be a relatively unknown golf apparel brand compared to some others, but it has been making outstandingly cool and high-quality golf shirts in particular for decades now. The brand has always sought to create products that look great everywhere and this floral design is a case in point.
It is inspired by the famous Azalea flower of Augusta National where the pink flowers combine with fun prints of golf balls, bags and golf carts to give a very unique and yet stylish aesthetic.
Another important thing to mention is the shirt’s material also has an eye on the environment too because it is part of Penguin’s Re-Originals collection, made from a combination of polyester, elastane, and recycled polyester, all with the objective of producing more sustainable products from recyclable materials.
G/FORE Liberty Stripe Polo Shirt
G/FORE tend to produce outlandish gear with far-out designs but the brand has shown restraint with this liberty polo. We think it looks great in both the snow and twilight designs, importantly working with a variety of trousers and shorts. It is made from a breathable tech pique fabric for those extremely warm days and it is stretchy enough for the most rapid of golf swings.
Peter Millar Crown Sport Night Performance Jersey Polo Shirt
This polo offers sharp style and technical performance that make it a staple in any wardrobe. It’s constructed using a lightweight, easy-care jersey fabric that wicks moisture and stretches four ways for optimal mobility on and off the course. Innovative UPF 50+ sun protection delivers added coverage for long days spent outside.
Puma MATTR One Way Polo Shirt
Puma is a brand always at the forefront of golf fashion, seeking to push the game and its style forwards and to new different places. The new MATTR One Way polo gives visual evidence of that.
In terms of performance, Puma has implemented a new MATTR (Materials, Technology & Research) performance fabric designed for the highest level of comfort no matter the climate condition. It is a moisture-wicking, fast-drying fabric that has a breathable, stretchy and lightweight feel to it so you can play your best.

With a comfort fit, y-tech cut and no top shoulder seam, you’ll experience maximum comfort through all movement. It also has UPF 50+ protection from the sun’s harmful rays and an antibacterial finish.
adidas Adicross Desert Print Polo Shirt
A shirt model you might find being worn out on Tour, the adicross Desert Print Polo is uniquely designed and inspired by the desert landscape. Like the other adidas selection above, it is also versatile enough to be used in most scenarios, and yet it also performs as it should on the fairways too.
It has a breathable build with the soft mesh fabric allowing you to have a completely unhampered swing all day.
FootJoy Lisle Daisy Print Polo Shirt
FootJoy has implemented several new designs this year that are sure to help you stand out from the crowd. Take this daisy print polo for example. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we think it looks great. It is unique whilst managing to retain some style, and the overall performance on offer is top-notch because of the ProDry Lightweight fabric, moisture management, and SPF 30 UV protection.
TravisMathew Solar Power Polo Shirt
A simple but modern looking aesthetic, this Solar Power polo is made from Prestige technical fabric which is designed to perform in extreme conditions, and yet still remain versatile enough to use as a daily shirt. It is lightweight, stretchy, quick-drying and also wrinkle resistant too so you spend less time ironing which is always a bonus. We like this Solar Power shirt so much we also included it in our guide on the best designer golf clothing too, which is praise indeed.
Glenmuir Marcus Polo Shirt
We love the look of this brand new Marcus polo from Glenmuir. Cool designs like this are all the rage now and we are all for it provided those shirts also perform well too. No need to worry about that here with the 88%-12% performance polyester and elastane blend giving a comfortable fit and soft feel.
Ocean Tee Oceanic Polo Shirt
New in 2021 from Ocean Tee is the Oceanic polo shirt which seeks to continue pushing the boundaries on environmentally sustainable apparel. The new design is made from a unique blend of Tencel and Refibra fibres that combines wood pulp and repurposed cotton. This fabric is naturally breathable and temperature-regulating to keep you cool over that downhill four-footer whilst is also comes in three colours and a sleeveless verson for women too.
Ping Staton Polo Shirt
Ping’s Staton shirt is an engineered yarn dyed polo that looks great on and off the golf course. It has a stretchy consturction but the star of the show is the SensorCool technology which helps draw perspiration away from the body which keeps you cool, dry, and therefore able to focus purely on that four-footer for par.
Inesis Short Sleeve Polo Shirt
