If you live in the UK, you will know how bad the months of November - March are for us golfers. Not only are the courses sometimes shut, but the wind, rain and even snow is enough to turn anyone off from venturing outside.

However, if you are lucky enough to get out on to the course, you better wrap up in some warm and waterproof gear... that temperature gauge will be struggling to get out of single figures and you don't want to be soaked to the skin! Consequently, it's worth investing in some of the best golf waterproofs, or even of the best golf rain jackets.

The problem lies in which model, though. Admittedly, waterproof jackets do tend to be a bit pricier, but not only can they be worn on the course but also off it. This makes them a very versatile option and one where you can really use them to the best of their abilities.

Whether you are tackling the course in the winter months, taking the dog out for a walk, or making your way to the pub, a waterproof jacket can be used for pretty much anything, not just golf.
