If you plan to play golf in the elements, you'll need the proper clothing.

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.


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.
