Oakley Club House Polo Review

While you may initially associate Oakley with making some of the best golf sunglasses on the market, the brand also designs some of the best golf shirts for golf. 

Oakley has been making some stylish golf clothing for a while, with the likes of Bubba Watson and Rafa Cabrera-Bello wearing the brand's gear in recent years. The Club House polo is their entry level shirt, but it certainly doesn’t lack in style or quality.

The first thing I have to say is that I was amazed this shirt only costs £39. It looks and feels like a more expensive piece of clothing, especially coming from a quality brand like Oakley. This shirt does all the simple things really well without too many of the bells and whistles that often inflate shirt prices.

It offers a really nice fit that will suit most golfers – nicely between the skin-hugging athletic fit that we see on tour these days and the super-baggy shirts of years gone by. The length of the body and sleeves are just right, the two-button collar is smart and the collar sits well and looks very sharp. The block colour options are good, and the Oakley logos are incredibly subtle.

There’s enough technology in there as well. The shirt is made from 53% recycled polyester and 47% cotton, so it feels good against your skin and is doing its small bit to save the planet. The Hydrolix moisture management system keeps you cool and dry as you play, and antibacterial properties keep the fabric fresh. It’s available in five colours (black, dark blue, white, red and light blue) and five sizes from XS-XL.

Overall, the Oakley Club House is a fantastic polo shirt that offers brilliant value for money, easily making it one of the best golf polo shirts we've tested this year. It does everything you want a polo to do without promising the world and costing the Earth. It looks good, fits well and has enough technology built in to keep you comfortable on the course.
