How To Stay Warm And Still Look Good On A Cold Golf Course

The weather here on Cape Cod has finally shifted, and though we still have a few days of 50 degree weather ahead, golfers who hit the course at 7 am face cold winds and frost delays. How do you bundle up enough to keep your body warm, still be able to swing the club easily and — most importantly, not look like an over stuffed polar bear?

Take Our Travel for Golf SurveyFirst, you need to layer. Catching the warm air between thin layers of clothing is far more efficient than just wearing a big bulky jacket. Consider long underwear (both tops and bottoms) – no one can see and you’ll be happy when the wind starts to blow. You will also need to check your pro shop for a good pair of winter golf gloves! And pick up some hand warmers to keep in your pockets. Finally, be sure to wear a hat! (Keep your head warm and your body stays toasty!)

I’ve been doing a bit of web research and I think you can find most of what you are looking for in cold weather fashions at  They have a great selection of great looking cold weather clothing. Here are just a few you might consider. 

Need a windbreaker or Jacket? Check out the 4all Thumbs Up Jacket. It’s a great product. My golf buddy, Noreen, wore it when we played golf in Ireland this past spring. Kept her very warm. (You can read her review here.)

    Hi John. This is a great question. And I don’t know the answer. I’ve never heard of a rule against hand warmers, but if one of our readers knows the answer… add it here. I’ll do some investigating.
