‘Best Of’ Review: These versatile Linksoul Boardwalker shorts are the ultimate in casual cool

Welcome to’s “Best Of” review series, where one of GOLF’s editors reviews new, interesting and helpful products from around the golf world. This week: Linksoul’s Boardwalker Shorts.


Linksoul is a lifestyle golf brand co-founded John Ashworth. Golf and surfing are a shared passion for Ashworth and his design team, and the brand’s products are a reflection of that commitment. Each item has a laid-back, Southern California-cool vibe that’s as stylish as it is functional.

The Product

Linksoul’s Boardwalker Shorts fit the brand’s values to a T. Designed to function both on and off the course, the Boardwalker is composed of a cotton and four-way stretch-blend fabric, so it’s both breathable and comfortable. A variety of available prints and colors up the style quotient, so you don’t have to feel like you’re wearing your golf clothes to an alfresco dinner.

Does it live up to the hype?

When my family moved to Arizona from New York back in 2017, a stockpile of shorts became an urgent necessity for my husband’s day-to-day wardrobe. I bought him several different brands, but he would always gravitate to the Boardwalker, so I ended up buying more. He loves that they’re lightweight and stretchy, and several years in, they’re still going strong after dozens of wearings and washings.
