When the weather starts to take a turn for the worse, golf snoods can come in really handy to protect your neck from the elements.
Snoods will help you stay warm during those chilly winter rounds, but can also offer protection against the sun too.
You probably won’t see them very often when you’re out playing golf, although they’re up there with base layers, thick socks and woolly hats in terms of their importance in the cold.
Once you’ve used one, it’ll be hard not to put them back on. They’re really comfortable and don’t hamper your swing at all.
Golf snoods now come in a variety of designs and are made from differing materials, so which is best for you?
We’ve set out our favourite golf snoods below, but if you need more apparel to deal with the cold weather, check out our buying guides on the best golf jumpers, best golf mitts and best golf midlayers.
