Best Nike Golf Caps

A brand that isn't in the club-making game anymore, Nike still regularly appears in the golf world because it outfits some of the best players in the world including Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and of course, Tiger Woods (opens in new tab).

Obviously every one of those top players wear Nike from the bottom, their shoes, all the way to the top, their caps and in this guide we are focusing on the latter. Nike has been making some of the best golf hats (opens in new tab) for a long time now with pretty much every model being designed for comfort, using technology that deals with sweat and breathability. Additionally, more than any other brand, Nike also releases lots of different models, in lots of different colors, including special edition versions for Major Championships, or ones with unique logo's on. For example Tiger Woods' 'Frank' cap sold out immediately.

Bearing all of this mind, here are some of the best golf caps (opens in new tab) made by Nike. Additionally be sure to check out some of our other golf guides as well - such as the best golf beanies (opens in new tab)best golf tops (opens in new tab) or best golf waterproofs (opens in new tab).

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 apparel

We test golf apparel (opens in new tab) with the same ethos as all other golf equipment, by using the product. With golf hats and caps this means putting them on during golf, after golf, on and off the golf course and just using them in every day life. We would also see what the caps are like in different conditions, and also see how easy they are to wash too because that is an important characteristic. 

We also should mention that no manufacturer can pay for a good review because our team tells it how it is. 

What to consider when buying a golf cap

There are several factors to consider when buying a golf cap and lets go into those now. 


The first factor to discuss is the style of cap and what are you after? Do you want a more curved bill or one that is almost flat like a snap back kind of design? Knowing what kind of style cap you want is one of the easiest ways of narrowing your search. 


This is the next most important factor because if a cap isn't comfortable, then it is totally pointless. It will make you take it off all the time and it might even irritate you as you are about to pull the trigger on a shot which never ends well. Therefore we would recommend trying out some models and seeing what size would be best for your head. That way you can gauge the comfort and whether a model will be good enough to wear over 18 holes and beyond. 


Linking with the comfort point, adjustability can play a key role in managing comfort. A hat can be transformed in seconds from one that doesn't fit, into the perfect fit with the ability to adjust the size. That being said some caps are stretchy and adjust themselves to different heads so once again we would recommend trying out models for yourself. 


Gone are the days when caps were boring and the same old colors. No, brands and Tour professionals have shown they want to design and wear models that stand out and Nike is one of the best at this. Sure some models split opinion but fashion is entirely subjective so if you want a bright and flashy model, go for it. But if you want to have a more understated design, you can do that as well. It is a case of wearing what makes you comfortable. 


Finally caps can vary in price so we would be remiss if we didn't mention budget as a factor to consider. Simply be aware of how much you want to spend on a golf cap and pick accordingly. 


Where are Nike hats made?

Most Nike products are manufactured in Vietnam and China. 

What are Nike hats made of?
