Best Nike Golf Shirts
Nike may not make golf clubs anymore but it is a brand still synonymous with great golf because it currently outfits some of the best players in the world including Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood. Those top guys, along with several other Nike staffers, turn up to tournaments with some of the best golf tops and outfits in the game, and the brand also makes special edition garments for Majors. Not to mention Nike also makes some of the best golf shoes right now as well.
What is great about all of this is everyone can get these pieces of clothing and one rich vein we have found is in polos. As such, we have taken a look at some of the best Nike golf shirts below. Also if you want more buying advice, we recommend checking out a couple of our other posts below to make sure you have the perfect clothing and equipment setup, such as the best golf jumpers.
Best Nike Golf Shirts
Why you can trust Golf Monthly
+ Nice, flexible fit
+ Comfortable stretchy material
- Lack of color options is limiting
The Nike Dri-FIT Victory polo is a stylish offering from Nike that is packed full of technology that will wick moisture away from your skin and keep you cool, dry and comfortable during your round. After taking this shirt for a spin, we were impressed by how well-aerated the polo kept us on the course. That is largely down to the polo’s lightweight polyester material, which gives this shirt a soft feel to the touch and stretches nicely, giving you a full range of movement. On that note, this polo fits nicely around the body and the arms to strike the perfect balance of not being too constricting but also not being too baggy.
+ Super comfortable
+ Stretchy material
- Buttons can pop loose
This fantastic golf polo is one of the highlights of Nike’s Tiger Woods collection and is perhaps one of the most stylish golf polo shirts we’ve had the pleasure of testing. It is super comfortable and lightweight being made of a stretchy polyester material that expands and contracts to your body’s movements. It doesn’t fit too tightly on the body either, meaning the polo gives you a great range of movement, allowing you to really twist into your backswing and rip through your follow-through. The fabric also uses Nike’s patented Dri-FIT ADV technology, which wicks moisture away from your body to help you feel dry and cool on the course.
+ Made from 100% recycled materials
+ Soft and comfortable to wear
- Color Scheme many not be for everyone
A polo we have seen on the likes of Rory McIlroy, this Camo polo is a nod to classic looking golf shirts and it really looks good both on and off the golf course. It is part of Nike's continued impetus into environmental issues as it is made from 100% recycled materials using a blend of both recycled polyester and organic cotton fibers. You could also pair this fantastic polo shirt up with one of the best Nike golf shoes to complete a classy Tour-standard look, sported by the likes of Rory McIlroy.
+ Comes in multiple colors
+ Moisture wicking properties
- All over print not for all
Available in several colors cool colors from navy to teal, the Vapor polo is made using predominately polyester (61% & 39% Nylon), which allows it to be both breathable and moisture-wicking. Given some of the other designs you will see in this guide, its understated and simple floral design will be preferred by many golfers. But what's more is the comfort this polo shirt delivers on the course, particularly on a hot day. Additionally Nike shirts are designed with a contemporary athletic style to create sporty 'tour-worn' golf apparel for your active lifestyle.
+ Lightweight construction
+ Moisture wicking properties
- The two colors may divide opinion
A model you will undoubtedly have seen out on Tour this all over print design certainly looks the part but of course may divide opinion. It features an all over "scattered golf tees" print which looks especially sharp in this coconut milk color option, while the contrast Nike Swoosh logo is printed at the left chest.
The polo has Dri-FIT technology at the core of the construction which helps you stay dry and comfortable, while the regular fit silhouette is relaxed in all the right areas.
+ Used by Rory
+ Made from stretchy fabric
- Camo design may not be for every golfer's tastes
Nike may not make golf clubs anymore but it continues to draw a lot of attention in the golf apparel and golf shoe market. The latest illustration of that is this camo polo which features Nike Dri-FIT technology that moves sweat away from your skin for quicker evaporation, helping you stay dry and comfortable.
It is also made from a stretchy fabric and we liked the mesh collar as well because it aided breathability and comfort. Finally these shirts come in several different colors ranging from white (pictured), to pink.
+ Cool styling and design pattern
+ Offers fantastic mobility
- A lot going on design wise
This is another model you will have seen Nike Tour players use in the professional game and once again it may divide opinion. It has a camo design intersected by squares which looks pretty sharp and comes in several different colors. Like most shirts on this list, it boasts moisture wicking Dri-Fit technology, while the regular fit silhouette is comfortable in all the right areas. The high level of stretch allows for maximum freedom of movement as well.
+ Made from a soft recycled polyester
- Out there colors
Part of the Tiger Woods collection, this shirt benefits from ADV technology which is super stretchy and wicks moisture away from the skin. Additionally we liked the addition of a meshed collar and perforations by the neck, offering peak breathability during the warmer months of the year. We also liked the print of the design and the colors it comes in, including the Teal version pictured, which looks fantastic. The midnight Navy version does look a lot more restrained though.
How we test golf apparel
We test golf apparel in the same way we test all golf equipment, by using products properly. In relation to polo shirts this means putting them to the test out on the golf course to see if the design is well thought out, if it moves nicely throughout the swing, and simply if the polo is usable. Additionally, wearing it on the course in different conditions gives us an idea on breathability, warmth if needed, and looks.
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.
What to consider when buying 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 before purchasing a Nike model.
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 polos come in lots of sizes so be wary of getting something that isn't fitting correctly for you.
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 - Brands like Nike 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. Of course, several of the models above have been designed with all of these facets in mind.
Design - Striped? Floral? An all-over print? Gone are the days of drab boring polo designs and in modern golf brands like Nike 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.
Price - Of course the price is always something people should think about. There is great value to be had with the models above but there are also more premium models for those wanting to spend a little more. Put simply, there is something for everyone.
