Winter Golf Gear

25 posts in this topic

I know it won't get cold for a while yet but I'm planning ahead. What kind of winter gear do you wear to play. I'm interested in all gear but most importantly rain gear and gloves. Thanks in advance!

When it gets cold I usually wear my snowboarding thermals underneath which do a good job of keeping me warm. Usually a long sleeve shirt on top and then maybe a fleece pullover if not windy. I wear normal pants just with the thermals since my legs usually stay warm from walking.

Sweatshirt, beanie and cold weather golf gloves should be fine in northern CA. He in Wisconsin you pretty much need snowshoes, a snow suit, ski mask and mittens.

Thermals,golf mittens, some type of long sleeve shirt, pull over and pants. I play in tournies thanksgiving weekend, christmas eve and new years eve since you have to ride I bought a car cover and a propane heater. It actually keeps the cart around 50* so it's pretty comfortable.

Cold weather... Like, aren't we supposed to sit by the fireplace, drink brandy and smoke cigars?
Won't winter golf cut into fireplace sports?

Cart cover and cart heater are the way to go! Brandy is also good as WUTiger said!

ditto on thermals. And even more important to me are wool or wool-blend hiking socks. Warm feet and warm legs make playing in even near-freezing conditions bearable.

i prefer to walk during cold weather as it keeps me lose and warm. i'll second the thermal underwear. other than that just layer up with stuff that you can swing freely in. some hothands in your pocket is a good idea too. i tried the footjoy cold weather gloves but just didn't like the feel so i typically just wear a regular glove and mitts over them. and keep your head warm. i got in the habit of wearing a baseball cap with a stocking cap over top of it.

Bumping up an old thread. I'm thinking about looking into some winter gear, so hopefully people out there can recommend some garments that are perfect for winter golf i.e. clothing that keeps your really warm but still allows you to make a decent shoulder turn.

It's pretty tough for me to enjoy golf in sub-45 degree weather here, so this might not work out for me, but I'm probably going to give it a try when the urge to play is just too much to suppress.

I was out there today (and you live in NJ so you know what I was working with) and it honestly wasn't bad. The courses are empty as anything so finishing in 2 hours isn't out of the realm of possibility.

What I went with (from head to toe): FJ beanie (came in the winter FJ pack) Under Armour mock(I guess it would be considered 2.0 gear nowadays) Cotton polo Ping Pullover (honestly not that thick, but it works) FJ Winter Gloves Hockey leggings (I also have a pair of UA cold gear pants but they're kinda tight for my liking) slacks long socks and of course my shoes It was windy, 35º and there were some flurries out there but I didn't even need to warm up in the club house at the turn. Walking certainly helped but I think I'm gonna wait for a nice calm 40º day next time.

Lately it has been consistently 40 and below in NYC.

Long sleeve mock, golf polo, fleece and topped with a wind breaker.
Thermals and underneath my golf pants which is topped with rain pants if its windy.

For socks I usually wear my thin snowboarding socks which wick moisture away pretty well. I'll probably start bringing out my mittens to keep my hands warm in between shots. Just as long as you have plenty of layers topped with a windblocker, you will be able to withstand the elements.

I got out this past Thursday I think it was... was about 43° slightly breezy, some sun. Not too bad at all, really. I went with my Nike stocking hat (warm ears is KEY for me, LOL) tshirt/polo/nike thermal sleeves/sweater on top and long slacks. Good to go!

Now this week, it has been a different story. 38° and 30 MPH winds, no thanks. Hoping to get out either Thursday/Friday/Saturday if it gets back into low 40's with lighter winds.

But, to agree with everyone else, layering up with thin layers is the way to go! I really like the Nike Thermal Sleeves for that purpose. Not bulky and do the trick.

(btw, I told my wife to find us a deal in Orlando for 2 days in January. I can't take it!! MUST MOVE SOUTH!!!)

I went to Dick's this evening for the first time ever, and damn is that place huge. I was very impressed with their overall golf selection. I bought a bunch of the stuff recommended so far in the thread, so we'll see how it goes the next time it's in the low 40s and not too windy.

What I got:

A Slazenger vest
Thin layered Nike and Adidas thermals
Nike pull-over
Footjoy winter golf gloves
Wool hiking socks

I went to GG today and picked up the FJ WinterSof gloves and an Adidas "thermal compession" mock. Hoping they do the trick when I get out today (hopefully) and tomorrow.

Just wondering though, I have never tried the winter type gloves (on both hands), so what are others' experiences with them? I put them on and tried gripping a club, needless to say it feels quite bulky and strange.

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
