Best Winter Golf Hats 2024


Adidas
Cold.RDY Pom Beanie

5 star review

RRP £23

The right beanie can be a game-changer for surviving winter for a golfer. Not only should it fit well and keep you warm, but it also needs to look great whilst wearing.

The Adidas Cold.Rdy pom beanie is as close to perfect as you are going to find. It has insulated cold.rdy fleece lining that keeps you warm in even the nippiest breeze, it’s well fitted to your head so it doesn’t slip up or down during the round, and the colour options are brilliant, with the jacquard design to keep you looking sharp.

I wore this on a windy day on the course and then to teach in and had no issue wearing it for 5-6 hours without adjustment, and I really like how it brightens up the standard dark winter golf outfit. 

PROS

  • Fits great
  • Fleece lined
  • Very warm

CONS

  • No cons

Sizes: One size
Colour: Yellow / black / arctic fusion



Oscar Jacobson Tammis Bobble Hat  

5 star review

RRP £21.99

The Oscar Jacobson Tammis bobble hat is ideal for the upcoming wintery conditions. A well-designed comfortable hat to help keep you warm throughout your round.

I really like the colours available and the marl contrast to look stylish without being too eye catchy. Despite being thick it still rolls up nice and easily to slip into the side pocket of your bag when no longer required.  

Overall, I am really happy with the Tammis bobble hat. It looks great on the course, off the course, feels very comfortable and keeps you as warm as needed. This will be getting lots of wear time out on the golf course this winter.

PROS

  • Comfortable  
  • Warm  
  • Smart  

CONS

  • None

Sizes: One size
Colour: Black Marl / Navy Marl /Lunar Grey Marl / China Blue Marl 

Under Armour
Halftime Pom Beanie

4.5 star review

RRP £25

When it comes to the winter elements, I’m someone who very much enjoys wrapping up to keep warm out on the course, as I imagine a lot of us are. Wearing a comfortable, yet warm beanie is one of my first priorities during the colder months. 

The Under Armour Men’s Halftime Pom Beanie is an absolute must-have this winter if you’re planning on golfing deep into the winter period. The beanie is made from soft acrylic knit fabric which helps deliver an extremely warm and a soft, comfortable feel on your head and most importantly keep those ears warm while you concentrate on your game. 

The beanie’s great classic pom look and multiple colour options, means this doesn’t just look stylish while out on the course, you’ll certainly be able to get your use out of it away from the course as well. 

Pros: 

  • Great looking beanie 
  • Extremely comfortable 
  • Keeps you warm 

Cons: 

  • Sizing on the larger side 

Sizes: One size fits all 
Colours: Black/White, Pitch Grey/Dark Maroon, Midnight Navy/Steel, Varsity Blue/White 


Ping SensorDry Bucket Hat

5 star review
Best Winter Golf Hats

RRP £45

I have to declare that I am a big fan of a bucket hat, particularly a waterproof one. As a glasses wearer, a perennial issue for me on the golf course is rain, and keeping said rain off of my glasses. The Ping SensorDry Bucket Hat does this perfectly, the wide brim offers full protection, even if the rain is coming in at an angle. The front of the brim also has a firm but not particularly noticeable peak, which adds another layer of protection in keeping the rain off your face. 

The hat is lightweight and breathable which is great, but the feature I really like is that it truly is a one-size-fits-all all. There is a hidden size adjuster, meaning that the hat can be adjusted to fit all. For those worried about windy conditions, then there is an adjustable cord which can be tightened to negate this, this cord is also removable. 

For anyone looking for a top-performing bucket hat, I would 100% recommend the Ping SensorDry. 

PROS: 

  • Wide Brim 
  • Waterproof 
  • Adjustable 

CONS: 

  • None 


Sizes: One Size 
Colour: Black 

Stuburt
Noble Wooly Hat

4 star review

RRP £20

If you are looking for a great value item to keep your head warm this winter then you may want to consider the Noble bobble hat from Stuburt. It comes in just one size but it is certainly large enough to cover your ears and provide warmth. It does, however, lack a fleecy lining, which would have provided extra comfort.  

Although there is just one size, there is a choice of three colours, all of which look pretty stylish. All have a horizontal stripe type design, which provides visual interest and can brighten up a normally dark winter waterproof outfit. 

On the rolled hem, there is quite a prominent logo on the hat, which may limit the off-course appeal, but this is another great piece of kit at a low price from Stuburt. 

PROS: 

  • Relaxed fit for warmth 
  • Stylish design  
  • Good range of colours 

CONS: 

  • Lacks fleece lining 


Sizes: One Size
Colours: Black, Light Grey, Dark Grey

TaylorMade
Bobble Beanie

4.5 star review

RRP £17.99

This is very much a golfer’s hat. However, it really is very good-looking, with the main part contrasting with the cuff. The thin stripes give it a contemporary look. The stitched logo has a feel of quality about it, and while prominent, isn’t too overbearing.

It has a lovely soft lining and is, unsurprisingly, extremely comfortable. The internal lining has a thermal fleece-lined construction. This thick lining is perfect for the colder weather due to the amount of warmth it adds.

This is a perfect addition to your bag for winter golf.

Pros:

  • Great looks 
  • Soft lining 
  • Extremely comfortable 

Cons:

  • None


Size: One Size
Colours: Grey/Navy, Royal Blue/Red, Grey/Black


Abacus
Edison Knitted Hat

4.5 star review
Best Winter Golf Hats

RRP £20

Insulating headwear is an essential component of the golfer’s winter wardrobe. It would be a mistake to wander out onto the golf course in the middle of winter without a warm beanie in your golf bag.

The Edison knitted hat is a simply designed but smart bobble hat that comes in a choice of three colours but just one size. I thought the dark grey melange looked really classy. 

There is a fleecy lining for comfort and warmth. The size of the hat allows you to pull it down over your ears and the subtle ‘Abacus’ sign means that this is a piece of kit that can be used off the course with ease. It’s also good value, so comes highly recommended. 

PROS

  • Comfortable and warm 
  • Smart appearance  
  • Good range of colours 

CONS

  • One size only


Sizes: One size 
Colours: Dark grey melange, Navy, Black. 

Payntr
Bobble Hat

4.5 star review
Best Winter Golf Hats

RRP £19.99

Payntr is a relatively new company in the golf wear industry but has made a big splash in a short amount of time.

This bobble hat is made from acrylic and is very comfortable on. Although not lined, it has a double layer of the knitted Jacquard acrylic so it keeps your head nice and warm.

It is one colour with a prominent Payntr logo on the cuff. The bobble is a mixture of the two colours. It has a bold, modern look to it, which is in keeping with the Payntr brand. 

This is a one-size-fits-all all model and is unisex.

PROS

  • Good modern looks 
  • Comfortable 
  • Double layer for warmth 

CONS

  • Some may prefer a separate lining.

Sizes: One Size
Colours: White/Grey/Black.

TaylorMade
Storm Bucket Hat

5 star review
Best Winter Golf Hats

RRP £19.99

I have never owned this style of hat, to my cost. Rain running down one’s face is bad enough but when combined with wearing glasses it does make golf even more challenging.

The Storm Bucket Hat from TaylorMade is the answer. Its 2.5-inch brim is just the right compromise between protection and remaining unobtrusive during the swing. I tested the black version, which had a pleasing, almost velvety look and texture to it. The website states it is water-resistant, but the label on the hat says waterproof.

In testing, there was no evidence of any water absorption. It has a relaxed stretch fit construction, which keeps it in place comfortably. The printed TaylorMade logo is tasteful. This is something I will keep in my golf bag from now on. 

PROS

  • Good looks 
  • Excellent fit 
  • Brim size perfect for protection and playing 

CONS

  • None

Colours: Black, Grey 
Sizes: S/M, L/XL 


Original Penguin
Quilted Flat Cap

4.5 star review
Best Winter Golf Hats

RRP: £30

A different look for AW23 is brought to the course by the Original Penguin Quilted Flat Cap. The sleek and elegant design is akin to that seen in Peaky Blinders and that is certainly a selling point for this product.

The gold stitching around the brim and outer edges of the cap is a lovely design with the logo – ‘an original Penguin by Munsingwear’ sewn in beautifully into the back section of the cap. In inner material is quilted, with overlapping penguin Petes stitched in for another cool plus.

That mix of materials on both inside and outside provides warmth for the head, and with the moisture-wicking sweatband, the Quilted Flat Cap can also be worn in the summer months as well. Due to the material of the cap, rain could become an issue. That’s the only negative for this sleek and elegant design of flat cap from Original Penguin. 

PROS

  • Comfortable 
    Elegant 
    Warm

CONS

  • Material not suited for rain

Sizes: One size 
Colour: Navy / Grey 

Puma
Pom Beanie

4 star review
Best Winter Golf Hats

RRP: £15

As someone who hasn’t often worn beanie hats on the golf course, this Puma Pom Beanie hat has gone a long way to changing things overnight.

For me, it is stylish, fun and a great fit which ticks all the boxes you want from a beanie – no matter how simple each feature is. The black and white colour scheme stands out from many other beanies I’ve seen, and it has a very snug fit on my head which made me feel protected and secure on the golf course. The turn-up cuff allows for extra protection if you need it, and it is perfectly finished with the Puma ‘P’ at the front.

The material has been carefully constructed to keep your head warm no matter what conditions you face on the golf course. The Puma script across the main body of the hat might not be to every golfer’s liking, but this shouldn’t take away from what is a solid beanie. 

PROS: 

  • Black and white colour scheme stands out 
  • Turn-up cuff gives extra protection option 

CONS: 

  • Repeated Puma script might not be to everyone’s taste 

Sizes: One Size
Colours: Black & bright white

Original Penguin
Quilted Polar Pete Cap

Best Winter Golf Hats

RRP: £30

Plenty of players will wear woolly hats in the winter. However, for those who continue to wear caps all year round, the Original Penguin Quilted Polar Pete Cap is a comfortable and good-looking option.

The black peak which encompasses the authentic Original Penguin logo on the front is stylish. It also features an overlapping pattern of Pete logos across the brim. The quilted effect on the front of the cap is a lovely touch and has a very nice feel to it.

However, one problem of playing in inclement weather though is that the material is not great in wet conditions. The blend of acrylic and wool fabric lends itself to becoming sodden in poor conditions, which could see the cap become heavy on the head. 

PROS: 

  • Comfortable 
  • Adjustable 
  • Looks good

CONS: 

  • Material not suited for rain

Sizes: One Size
Colours: Caviar Black & Quiet Shade Grey

Galvin Green Leighton – insulating hat 

5 star review

RRP: £39

The humble hat is a much-neglected piece of golf wear. We’ll largely stick any old bit of material on our bounces and hope for the best. 

In that market, the Galvin Green Leighton really is a gold-star piece of kit. What’s so special about it? Two things. For a knitted hat, it’s incredibly warm thanks to the thermal lining but doesn’t carry the associated weight that usually accompanies such protection. You’re not going to feel like you’re wearing a crown. 

The second is it performs spectacularly well in wind and rain, particularly the latter, which can often leave your head sodden after a couple of holes and reaching for a replacement.  

Some of you are going to baulk at the price tag – a familiar theme with Galvin Green. £39 is a lot of cash for what is essentially a bobble hat. 

But this one will get through 18-holes in the worst of the weather without requiring replacements, and that is a compelling argument.

PROS

  • Very warm
  • Great in the rain
  • Still breathable

CONS

  • Price

Sizes: One size 
Colour: Black/Forged Iron/White – Navy/Cool Grey/White – Blue/Navy/White

TravisMathew Coastal Beanie

4.5 star review

RRP £29.99

The TravisMathew Coastal Beanie seamlessly blends style and functionality.

Well crafted, this beanie exudes a casual yet sophisticated vibe, making it a versatile accessory for various occasions, not just golf.

The high-quality material ensures comfort and warmth, making it ideal for chilly days. The subtle branding adds a touch of sophistication without being overpowering.

The Coastal Beanie’s design allows for a snug fit without compromising on breathability. The stitched turn up I like as avoids you having to put over your face and roll back up!

Whether you’re hitting the fairway, going for a stroll or attending outside events, it is a great addition to your winter wardrobe.

TravisMathew once again delivers a product that combines fashion and practicality and has a nice option of colours to choose from that are not your normal golf options.

PROS

  • Warm
  • Good choice of colours
  • Subtle branding

CONS

  • Pricy

Sizes: One size 
Colour: Copper / Moonbeam / Laurel

Callaway Epic Max driver review

Jack is a PGA Golf Professional who specialises in coaching, teaching golf to beginners and top-level amateurs for 10+ years. He also loves his golf equipment and analysing the data of the latest clubs on the market using launch monitors, specialising in blade irons and low-spinning drivers despite having a chronically low ball flight.

Although Jack has no formal journalism training, He has been reading What's In The Bag articles since he started playing at 12 and studying golf swings since his dad first filmed his swing to reveal one of the worst over-the-top slice swings he reckons has ever been recorded, which set him off on the path to be a coach. His favourite club ever owned was a Ping G10 driver bought from a local top amateur with the hope that some of the quality golf shots would come with it (they didn't), and worst was a Nike SQ driver he only bought because Tiger was using it.

Jack is a member of Sand Moor Golf Club and regularly gets out on the golf course to prepare for tournaments. Jack uses a TaylorMade BRNR Mini driver, a half set of TaylorMade P7MB irons, MG4 wedges and a TaylorMade TP Reserve putter.
