Best golf headcovers: Make a statement with these fun, stylish headcovers
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 new 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.
BEST GOLF HEADCOVERS
When it comes to decking out your set of golf clubs, nothing quite sets you apart from the crowd like your headcovers. Some players prefer to stick with the off-the-rack branded look, but others see headcovers as a chance for expression, for color, for style, for a chance to make a statement. They have a basic job to do: nobody likes their clubs clinking against each other on the way down every fairway. But there’s room for so much more than that. Here’s what you should consider when you’re looking to upgrade in the custom headcover department:
Let’s start with the basics. Headcovers are meant to protect your golf clubs, so you should make sure your selection does that first and foremost. Sure, your clubs are tough — they’re built to hit golf balls at speeds well over 100 mph. But they’re also valuable, beautiful works of technology. Let’s keep ’em scratch-free as long as we can.
EASE OF USE
Again, basic stuff, but important. If you like to rip the big stick, you very well may take your driver headcover off and put it back on a dozen times over the course of 18 holes. Make sure it’s the proper size for your clubhead, so it’s snug enough to stay on but doesn’t require a frustrating tug-of-war to take off.
Shop around a little bit. This day and age, if you’ve got a vision for how your headcovers should look and feel, there’s a good chance you can find something to satisfy your craving. You spent good money on that driver — cover it up the way you want!
Just how customizable does a company allow you to get? Do you want your headcovers to commemorate a special occasion? Do you want your name on them? Your favorite sports team? Want to give them as a gift? There are plenty of ways to customize your headcovers — again, no need to settle!
What do your headcovers say about you? Think about how strongly you identify the car somebody drives with your mental image of them. Your golf buddies will see your headcovers every time they see you on the course — make sure you’re projecting the proper vibe. Headcovers can be fun, cool, sleek, stylish, eye-catching, loud, minimalist or anything in between.
Best headcovers for animal lovers
Whether you know it or not, you’re already extremely familiar with the work of Daphne’s headcovers. That’s because you’ve seen one on the driver head of one Tiger Woods.

Daphne’s offers fuzzy animals galore, and if you’re buying in bulk for a group or event, there are literally endless ways to customize.
