Don't let the cold spoil your scorecard thanks to these wonderfully warm jumpers and sweaters

Being protected from the rain is one thing; being shielded from the cold is another.

Speaking of which, how prepared are you for the Autumn weather?

If you haven’t already got a decent golf jumper in your wardrobe, you’re clearly not that prepared!

Regardless of whether you choose to go for a lambswool, merino quarter-zip, mid-layer or fleece, the beauty of modern golf jumpers is that they’re constructed with technologically-advanced fabrics to ensure they’re stretchy, warm, water-repellent, and durable.

A good golf jumper is an essential piece of clothing towards the end of the year, so that’s why we’ve made this buying guide to help you make an informed decision before buying one.
