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 POLOS

For many golfers — heck, probably all of them — there is no item of golf apparel more frequently collected than the polo. You buy them at tournaments, bucket-list course visits, and, well, just because you like them. For men, they can often double as both golf apparel and business casual. So, you can never have too many.

While blade collars and mocknecks have done their best to snag a sliver of market share, the collared polo is king, and likely always will be. It’s universally flattering, and universally approved as the most appropriate golf apparel. 

But despite the seeming rigidity of what makes a polo a polo, the best thing about them is the fact that there is still much variety to enjoy and experiment with: the size of the collar, the length of the placket, the inclusion (or not) of a front pocket, the fabric, cotton or performance stretch — all these factors and more combine to differentiate one golf polo from the other, with each speaking to a golfers’ individual styles. Here are nine of our favorite golf polos.

Best golf polo for hot conditions

Adidas Ultimate 365 ClimaCool

Breathable, lightweight, four-way stretch-fabric construction and raglan sleeves provide minimal resistance during your swing. To top it off, a UPF 50+ rating on the polo’s fabric helps protect you from the sun’s powerful UV rays.
