For many, fall golf is the best golf. The temperatures drop, the leaves change, the rough isn’t as thick, to name just a few perks to pegging it in the fall. The downside, however, is the weather. Conditions can fluctuate seemingly every hole. This points to being prepared with the apparel you don during your round. We take a look at our 5 favorite fall golf apparel pieces that will keep you on top of your game during pre-winter rounds.
5 Fall Golf Apparel Items
1. adidas Lightweight UPF 1/4 zip
A lightweight pullover is the perfect segway between warm summer rounds and cooler fall ones. They can easily layer with your favorite golf polo, keeping you warm when the wind picks up slightly and temps are moderate.
The adidas Lightweight UPF 1/4 zip is made of moisture-wicking fabric that keeps you cool. The fabric also has UV protection from the sun. The mock neck adds an extra layer of comfort and warmth when you zip up the pullover.
Looks wise, the adidas Lightweight 1/4 zip comes in 3 color options, with a stylish gray heather pattern as either the main color or an accent color. Overall, the shirt has a clean, modern look.
2. Nike Therma Repel 1/2 zip
For days when you need to wear something a little thicker, go with the Nike Therma Repel 1/2 zip. The thick Therma fabric preserves body heat and is water-repellent to keep you dry.
A drop-tail hem limits the back of the pullover from rising up as you address the ball, reducing the chance of uncomfortable drafts going up your back.
The Nike Therma Repel comes in several solid colors to choose from that pair great with any outfit.
3. Puma Corduroy 6 pocket pant
Corduroy pants are a staple in many fall wardrobes but not necessarily on the golf course. Puma aims to change that with their Corduroy 6 pocket pant. First of all, these are far cry from the traditional cords. These have a modern twist with several subtle features that set them apart.
The cords themselves are small and close together. From afar, you’d think they were any other flat front pant. The fabric is made out of a cotton and spandex blend that stretches as you swing, creating a comfortable feeling pant.
Details like the leather branding on the rear belt loop, a triangle-shaped piece of fabric that hides half the front button, and a rear scorecard pocket all give these pants a modern, fashion-forward look on and off the course.
4. Oakley Range Full Zip Vest
For rounds when it’s too warm for long sleeves but cool enough that you need an extra layer, consider the Oakley Range Full Zip Vest. Brushed fleece fabric lines the inside of the vest, providing warmth and moisture-wicking ability. The outer polyester fabric is machine washable, reduces shrinking and wrinkles.
The arm holes are cut so they don’t go past the shoulder joint, freeing up your swing. The two front pockets provide a place for your hands, should they get cold.
5. ECCO Biom Hybrid 3 GTX
Fall rounds of golf can get a little sloppy too. In this case, the ECCO Biom Hybrid 3 GTX golf shoes are ideal. The waterproof Gore-Tex material on the outside stops water from getting in. ECCO uses Yak leather to make the upper. This soft, breathable leather allows your foot to move easily while you swing.
The last (or frame) of the Biom Hybrid 3 GTX is molded like the natural shape of the foot, accentuating the comfort of the shoe. The last also has BIOM® NATURAL MOTION® Technology that initiates an efficient stride, reducing the fatigue on your feet.
The Tri-Fi-Grip™ outsole on the bottom of the shoe provides traction laterally, rotationally, and while you walk. In other words, no matter the lie or part of your swing, your feet will stay planted on the ground.
