Best Ralph Lauren Golf Polos

Ralph Lauren apparel is renowned for its style and high-quality performance so all of golf won when the brand decided to make golf gear. Having previously worked with Justin Thomas and continuing to do so with Billy Horschel, Ralph Lauren has the RLX and Polo Golf lines which offer something slightly unique from one another. 

For the polos below, Polo Golf is all about classic style and simplicity, whereas the RLX range seeks to update those classic aesthetics and update them with performance-driven design. Acknowledging all of this, below we take a look at some of the best designs from the brand.

A golf polo is an important item of apparel to get right because they have to be able to deal with hot and cold conditions, sweat and breathability, all the while remaining comfortable. They must also make sure the golf swing is unhampered and free, not to mention they have to look the part, too. 

We are confident the models below deliver in all of these ways so check them out. Additionally, if you want to complete the ensemble, we recommend checking out some of our other buying guides on the best golf tops and also best golf trousers, so you can get the entire outfit right.

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

At Golf Monthly we pride ourselves on our honest, insightful and comprehensive content, and our testing procedure reflects that for all golf products, not just golf polos.

In terms of specifics, with polos we would be given samples and then put them to the test out on the golf course in different conditions. This testing often takes place over a number of rounds, and we often put products to the test off the golf course as well to see how versatile they are.

The final point we wanted to mention is no manufacturer can buy a good review because our testing team seeks to be as honest, and transparent as possible.

How to choose the right polo 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.

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. This should not be a problem with RLX or Polo Golf as both lines offer lots of different sizes. 

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. As the models above show, Ralph Lauren polos are made from a variety of fabrics and each offer something a little different when it comes to feel. 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. Ralph Lauren is no exception as the brand makes golf polos to help deal with sweat and moisture management. Some offer UV protection, anti-microbial properties, and some are also doing their bit for the environment too with sustainable fabric construction. Of course, several of the models above have been designed with all of these facets in mind.

Design - Striped? Floral? An all-over print? As the Ralph Lauren models above show, 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.

Price - Of course the price is always something people should think about. Some of the model above are punchy when talking about buying a polo shirt but some can also be found cheaper with different retailers so it is worth having a scout around online.
