Tips for Cold-Weather Golfing Attire | Sun Mountain Blog – SunMountainSports

With winter in full swing, golfing might be challenging for many players. However, for the dedicated golfer, the chill of the air isn’t likely to stop the game.  

Cold-weather golfing, while challenging, can be extremely rewarding if you have the right preparation and gear.  Before you start gathering your winter golf clothing and gear, you need some essential tips for braving the cold on the golf course. 

Let’s find you the best golf outerwear choices to ensure warmth, comfort and style without compromising your swing.

How to Choose the Right Golf Gear for Cold Conditions

When selecting the right gear for cold-weather golfing, there are several key factors to consider. 

First, you should prioritize insulation and mobility to maintain warmth without restricting your swing. Look for garments with moisture-wicking properties to keep sweat at bay and water-resistant materials to shield against light rain or snow. 

Additionally, versatility is crucial – opt for layering pieces that can adapt to fluctuating temperatures throughout your round. 

You should also consider the functionality and style of each piece, making sure that your winter golf pants, vests and more not only perform well but also elevate your look on the course. 

Let’s talk logistics and some key considerations for your next cold-weather day on the course.

Winter Golfing Tips for Peak Performance

Layer Up: As mentioned earlier, layering is essential for staying warm and comfortable while cold-weather golfing. Start with a moisture-wicking base layer to keep sweat at bay. Add a cozy mid-layer to trap heat and finish off with a windproof and water-resistant outer layer for ultimate protection against the elements. This allows you to stay warm and adapt to changing temperatures as your game progresses.

Protect Your Extremities: It's crucial to keep your hands, head and feet warm during cold-weather golfing. Invest in a good pair of thermal gloves to maintain dexterity while keeping your hands warm. A beanie or thermal hat is perfect for keeping your head and ears warm without interfering with your swing. Thermal socks can also keep your feet snug and comfortable throughout your round.

Stay Dry: Moisture-wicking clothing is a game-changer in cold conditions. Look for garments designed to wick away sweat and keep you dry, preventing discomfort and potential chills on the course. Players can also invest in water-resistant outer layers to protect against light rain or snow, allowing you to focus on your game without being distracted by the weather.

Choose the Right Footwear: Proper footwear is crucial for cold-weather golfing. Look for golf shoes with waterproof and insulated features to keep your feet warm, dry and stable, providing essential traction on wet or slick terrain. Good quality socks are also vital to ensure maximum comfort and warmth.

Be Prepared: Always pack extra gloves, hand warmers and additional layers in your golf bag. It's always better to have too many layers and not need them than to be unprepared for a sudden drop in temperature. Hand warmers in your pockets can make a huge difference on extra frosty days and having spare gloves ensures you can swap them out if they get damp.
