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. The best models often help with blocking UV rays, provide anti-odor protection, and have a design that will suit different fashion senses. 

This is where the selections below come in. From FootJoy to Original Penguin we have tested a lot of shirts and put together this guide on our favorite men's golf shirts that will seek to achieve everything we mentioned above without breaking the bank. Alternatively check out some of our other guides on golf clothing - such as the best women's golf shirts, best golf tops, or the best golf pants.

Why you can trust Golf Monthly Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

How we test golf shirts

Our testing ethos for golf apparel, as well as all golf products, revolves around using products properly. This means when we test men's golf shirts we put them to the test out on the golf course to see if the product lives up to the performance promised in relation to comfort, breathability, looks and so on. We also use the polos in different conditions to see how thy get on in changing conditions. 

We would also wear the polos 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. 

How to choose a golf shirt

As mentioned, there is a lot to think about when picking the right polo shirt for you. With that in mind, we have come up with several things for you to think about when choosing a golf polo.

Length

During the golf swing if you find your shirt coming untucked often, or your belly starts to show then you should think about a polo with a longer length. That way it will remain tucked in throughout the round and beyond.

Fit

Do you want a more loose fitting polo or something with more of an athletic fit? Slim fit or classic fit? Most brands offer lots of different sizes so be wary of picking something that doesn't fit correctly. 

Sleeves

It doesn't sound that important, but a polo with sleeves too long or too short can be annoying. They should come to the middle of the upper arm, and the seam should align with the middle of the shoulders.

Fabric

Have a think about what fabric you would like the polo to be made from. For example, there are loads of materials used these days such as polyester, spandex, lycra, nylon and cotton. Often polos are made with a combination of these.

Technology

Most brands make polo shirts that offer technology to help in a variety of ways. For example, many help with moisture management and sweat wicking which keeps the body dry and comfortable. Some also offer UV protection and anti-microbial properties too, so it is worth thinking about what aspect you find important here. That being said we would recommend going for a model designed with all these facets in mind.

Design

Striped? Floral? An all-over print? Gone are the days of drab boring polo designs and in modern golf most brands really push the boat out. The sheer array of polo shirts we picked out above shows this clearly. Whatever fashion sense you have, there will be a polo for you.

Budget

Of course you always need to think about your budget. Whatever number you decide upon, there will be a model for you, ranging from the top premium models, down to the ones offering excellent value. 

Why not pair your golf polo up with a pair of the best golf trousers or one of the best golf sweaters on the market.
