best of golf shorts

When it comes to finding the best golf products, every golfer needs a little guidance. Don’t sweat it, we got you covered. For our 2021 Best of Everything series, we’ve canvassed the golf accessories, apparel and game-improvement space to identify the very best stuff for your game. Think of us as your personal shopping assistant. For more of our Best Of lists, visit our Pro Shop.

The best golf shorts

Look, we’ll be the first to admit, finding a solid pair of golf shorts should be easy. All golf shorts look fairly similar, are made of (largely) subdued colors, and can only be made from so many fabrics. So, what’s the issue? Well, just ask any person who’s been stuck on the course in 100-degree temperatures in the wrong pair of shorts. Suddenly, your half-pants (and your round) are wholly ruined.

Fortunately, golf apparel companies know this, too. They’ve focused their design efforts on creating breezy, comfortable briefs without adding unnecessary pockets (or length). For the perfect, trim look that will simultaneously keep you comfortable and stylish on the course, there are right answers. Here are the best to make sure you don’t come up…short.
