The key summer golf gear to get ahead with

The days are getting longer and warmer – it’s the perfect time for extended rounds, without feeling rushed. Lush scenery, manicured fairways, and ample opportunities for alfresco afters: the only thing that can make summer golf season better is having the best gear to play the game with.

Here, we round up the latest and greatest summer golf gear from leading brands. Whether you're looking to refresh your wardrobe, upgrade your clubs, or enhance your technology, we've got you covered.

Update your summer polo shirt

You want to stay cool and look cool on that course, with comfortable, lightweight, breathable fabrics designed to wick away moisture and keep you dry. First up, we’d recommend a top-performance polo shirt. For that, look to Oscar Jacobson: the brand’s new summer collection features lightweight, quick-dry fabric, with side vents and UV protection to shield you from the sun's rays. From the modern Kotewell with its all-over OJ print to the subtle retro Ashald in navy and elemental blue, there’s a shirt for every style. 

Don’t forget your midlayers 

It might be heating up weather-wise, but we are in the UK after all. For days where you need that little extra warmth, Oscar Jacobson Austin Golf Midlayers are made from lightweight fabric with technically soft, moisture-wicking properties: choose from navy or elemental blue. Love a bit of camo? Footjoy offers a ¼ zip midlayer pullover in black or navy that’s super versatile for changing weather conditions.

Sort out some moisture-wicking bottoms

FootJoy always delivers on style and function, and it has the perfect tapered fit shorts for the fairways this summer. The FootJoy Par Golf Shorts are available in grey, black, cobalt, or navy lightweight stretch fabric, designed for maximum breathability and easy swinging. Meanwhile, the brand’s gripper waistband helps keep your shirt in place, so you can move freely. Not forgetting side entry pockets, for all your essentials. If shorts aren’t your thing, the brand also offers FootJoy Ace Golf Trousers that offer maximum breathability and a modern tapered cut for warmer weather. Take your pick from black, grey, or navy colourways.

Stay calm and get a cap

Hallelujah, it’s golf cap weather. A good golf cap isn’t just a fashion statement, modern-day caps are designed specifically to deal with the elements to keep you as comfortable as possible on the course. Add some vintage charm to your golf look with a Black Clover Golf Cap. Available in a wide range of colourways, this relaxed design has an adjustable strap to fit on any golfer’s head. And for hotter days, the soft mesh backing keeps you cool, too. 

Refresh your golf clubs

Choosing the right clubs to get you from tee to green on every hole can be a minefield. This year, PXG has smashed it out the bunker with its latest Black Ops driver, hybrid, and fairway clubs for 2024. From the PXG 0311 Black Ops Driver’s explosive hits to the 0311 Black Ops Fairway Woods’ maximum forgiveness, the new series showcases the brand’s top craftsmanship and advanced technology. Add the PXG 0311 Black Ops Hybrids to your summer collection, which can also be custom fit to suit your playing style, and prepare for an epic game. Other club favourites include Mizuno: from the brand’s JPX 923 Hot Metal Golf Irons aimed at mid to high handicap golfers to its Golf ST-Z 230 Fairway Wood providing high performance for golfers of all levels.

Upgrade your accessory arsenal

From sweat-mopping towels to shade-giving umbrellas, make this season extra comfortable with the best accessories in the game. Save your energy in the sun by investing in a new golf bag or electric golf trolley. For the latter, look no further than the Powakaddy CT6 GPS XL Electric Lithium Golf Trolley if you want intelligent design, ultra-compact size, 40,000 preloaded courses, and a lengthy list of impressive features. Meanwhile, there’s a whole host of GPS golf watches to give you the edge on the course: models such as the Shot Scope V5 Golf GPS Performance Tracking Watch provide all the performance-tracking power you need this summer.
