Golf is an outdoor sport, which is great, but it also means you’ll have to brave the elements from time to time. This is a daunting prospect for some, but it doesn’t have to be. All you need is the proper clothing.

Proper shoes and insulating base layers are a part of the equation, but if you really want to be protected from the elements, you’ll need outerwear that stands the test. That’s where we come in. As a part of our annual Best of Everything list, we’ve compiled some of the best outerwear that will keep you shielded from the elements — no matter the weather.
