Polos are a golf course staple. Here are our five favorites.

Welcome to GOLF’s 2021/2022 edition of the Best of Everything, where we’re providing you with the, well… best of everything! Check out our picks below or browse more items in our Pro Shop.


There are a handful of accepted norms in the world of fashion. You don’t show up to a job interview in sweatpants. You don’t wear a tuxedo to work every day. And, in that very same vein, you don’t go to a golf course without a polo (usually).

Polos — a single, versatile piece of clothing — are essential to the golf experience. They are a function of style, of comfort, of personality. Often (but not always) featuring a collar, these shirts blend performance with fashion, and can be used in any number of circumstances and some even help you battle the weather.

Today, polos have taken on their own sect of the golf apparel world. Gone are the days of crisp cotton shirts and starched colors, in are high-performance fabrics, moisture-wicking materials and, on more than one occasion, designs unlike anything you’ve seen on a golf course before.

Check out some of our favorites below.
