Winter Golf Gear

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
