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 PANTS

It’s easy to get fired up about buying a new polo; when it comes to cut, color, pattern and style, the options are exciting and seemingly endless. Golf pants are admittedly less thrilling by comparison (unless, of course, you’re shopping for Loudmouths), but the good news is that golf pants have come a long way when it comes to both technological innovation and style.

Today’s offerings boast features like strategic ventilation and interior sticky waistbands to help your shirt stay tucked in. The growing popularity of European cuts and tailoring has added sophistication and — dare we say — flair to what was once merely a ubiquitous pair of pleated chinos.

For all the attention given to shoes, socks, and yes, polos, golf pants feel a bit left by the wayside, and undeservedly so. Comfortable trousers can greatly enhance your enjoyment of a round. Most every pair you’ll find nowadays includes an element of stretch and breathability, meaning you can walk or ride in comfort throughout your round. Once you start looking, you may be surprised by the variety that’s out there, so here are our picks for the eight best golf pants you can buy.

Best golf pants for looking like a pro

Peter Millar Durham Performance

Peter Millar pants

Available in seven different neutral and earth tones, these pants are as professional as it gets: not too tight, not too loose, and offered in three different inseam lengths. The result is a perfectly tailored look that doesn’t require dry cleaning or even ironing. The polyester woven twill fabric is also moisture-wicking, and two-way stretch ensures comfort.

Best lightweight golf pants

Under Armour Showdown

Under Armour Showdown pants

A straight-leg fit gives the Showdown a professional look — you get the sense you could go straight from the course to a job interview. But the light, stretchy, quick-dry, moisture-wicking fabric also welcomes sporty movement, and the company dubs the comfort level “insane” on the website, so if that doesn’t intrigue you, what will? Available in five colors.
