I love golf hats. All kinds. But this thread is for those special hats you own that are in your personal Hall of Fame. Preferably non-OEM. Let's see them! 

 

First up is Seminole. I have played in three stroke play tournaments there and its an incredible place. Second up is my Crosby hat from the Clambake. I have never been but it was a gift from a great friend of mine and tied in the black and brown I used to wear. The logo is supercool and a suede bill that screams 80s.

The first time I played Pebble Beach it was raining so I reluctantly put on a golf hat.  It was a cap I had from the Breckenridge Ski Resort in Colorado.  My caddie had skied there, too.  So we instantly had a bond.  By hole #8 the rain had stopped and a rainbow came out!  I removed the hat, and haven't worn it since.  Definitely HOF material.

Is it blue?  I have one from Breck but it wouldn't be in my HOF.   I've never really give any thought to hats being in my HOF.   They just keep the sun off.

@TourSpoon, I like the hats you've displayed.   Thanks for sharing.

Black.  And TourSpoon, that Crosby hat is fantastic!  It's that time of the year to bring back the Crosby/Bowie Christmas music.

Same, here. I don’t even own a “golf” hat.

It's hard to believe that I am the only one with some unique headwear. Come on! 

Hats are, to me, almost entirely functional. I wear them until they're kinda gross or old looking, and then I throw them out.

I am not a collector of hats and as others have said, I wear one to keep the sun out of my eyes, prevent sunburn on my head through thinning hair and when cold, keep me warm.

That being said, I will talk about two pieces of head gear.

I have worked for "HealthCap" many years.  They have taken me on a lot of great golf trips.  One was where I acquired the cap below (the 3rd photo shows one the original color).  It is my grass cutting hat now.  😉

The second item dates from 2011.  I played in a GAM Golf Day at Radrick Farms.  Radrick was Pete Dye's first 18 hole course.  It is owned by the University of Michigan.  A really nice course.  At any rate, I placed in the money that day, both net and gross.  I waited until the end of the season when everything in the clubhouse was marked down. I bought some socks and the below sock hat/beanie.  That hat stays in my bag from September to the end of May.

Okay, I'm not sure what qualifies as Hall of Fame material. 

Normally I just wear a hat that keeps the sun of my scalp and is comfortable. I actually like the "trucker hat" style the best. Two reasons... 1 - I like the venting to keep my big brain from overheating. 2 - They go great with cargo shorts..... 👍🤪👍

Here's the hat I picked up at the TST Whispering Woods, Chautauqua, NY/Erie, PA gathering. See this thread for information: 

Chautauqua, NY/Erie, PA Gathering - August 1-2, 2020 - Member Outings & Meetups - The Sand Trap .com

Anyhoo, it was a great time. I really enjoyed it. I played pretty much the worst of anyone there. And I got this hat. I like it a lot.

Agreed. I have tons of hats. I also saw somewhere on Youtube, they have a hat spray that stops the sweat marks from appearing.

I'm a bit of a hat collector. But I don't think I've worn a different hat golfing since I got this one :-)

Runner up is probably this one. My version is no mesh and all dark grey. It's the ghost tree hat from Old MacDonald at Bandon. My least favorite of the courses there but by far the coolest hat!

No in all honesty I feel the same way @iacas feels, they are purely functional until they are so gross that they must be tossed. Working at a golf course for all these years has ruined me from buying hats when I play different courses. I know how much those hats really cost wholesale, and I have a hard time paying $35-$40 for a $13 hat, I don't care if it does say Pinehurst no 2 on it.

That's a great hat! I have one just like it, plus various other Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins hats. I played with a Yankees fan one day while wearing a Red Sox hat,and I told him that he was a very lucky man because he could look at my hat for four hours.

When you missed that one foot putt did you tell him your name was Bill Buckner?  😁

It really depends on the bowl of soup that comes with it.

    • Hello everyone! I'm happy I was able to find this forum and further my obsession with golf. I have been playing for about 8 years or so with a high handicap that will be (hopefully) dramatically reduced by the end of this year after I take a few lessons. Either way, I really enjoy the game, fellow golfers and the social aspects of the game. There's nothing like a beautiful day, hitting some nice shots and having a cigar with the guys. I'm on a journey of golfing in every state. I've already crossed Alaska off the list and that had to have been the hardest to do. I'm looking forward to hearing from everyone on the forum and to this upcoming season. Cheers!
    • Oy. You're going to great lengths to justify… what, exactly? And with nothing more than a little fact and a f*** ton of speculation. The topic here is Justin Thomas. You think it's hypocritical, but what should they have done when Justin Thomas uttered that word? Ignored it, simply because that wouldn't have been hypocritical? You're making a really stupid argument. Oh for f***'s sake, stop posting in this topic.
    • If the only way that RL can profit is by using labor in countries that are anti-LGBT, they have a horrible business model and should fail. Their clothes aren't exactly cheap, and they could probably make them in a western country and still make profit. Obviously not as large, but they would be able to support far more LGBT people with this if that is what they care about (which I think they do, and they should). The problem is that they want to look like they care, but the only thing they actually care about comes in the color of green, and it isn't the grass golfers play on.
    • Hahaha!  You guys are funny!!!  Christmas is a funny thing...I got two wedges and she got a Dyson and an irobot.  She was pretty happy with her Christmas too... I suspect I'll be using the Dyson a lot more though...so I guess it was more for me as well...lol!!
