Hurray! These new golf umbrellas are anything but boring.

Most golf umbrellas — while functional — don’t exactly make a grand fashion statement. They’re often basic colors like navy blue and black, with a giant manufacturer’s logo emblazoned on the side. And many “cute” umbrellas in the market simply aren’t big enough to be useful on a golf course.

Luckily for style-savvy players, Burton Golf is stepping up with a truly perfect solution: umbrellas that are big enough for use on the course that also come in a variety of pretty prints.

The brand’s LDX wind vent umbrellas feature Southwind Apparel’s (a women’s clothing brand) Chesapeake Bay-inspired prints. The three unique patterns coincide with items in Southwind Apparel’s clothing line, as well as Burton’s own line of LDX cart bags.

The umbrellas feature a double-vented canopy system to combat high-wind conditions (i.e., to help prevent the dreaded upside-down inverted umbrella), and in the event you inadvertently find yourself in a dicey weather situation on the course, the materials do not conduct electricity. With a 62-inch diameter, the umbrella is large enough for maximum coverage and includes a non-slip ergonomic cushion grip, reinforced fiberglass shaft, ribs and hub, and hook and loop closure straps.

The best part? The LDX umbrellas retail for $34.95. You can purchase yours at
