It might not be the first thing you think of with regards to your golfing outfit, but a golf jacket is an essential piece of clothing. Since golf is a game played outdoors, there will inevitably come a time when the heavens will open or the winds pick up, and, rather than finish your game, simply throw on a waterproof golf jacket and you can continue to play.

You’ll never know when the rain will hit, so having a waterproof golf jacket is like having a companion out there on the course. Thanks to the lightweight construction of modern golf jackets, they can easily be stored in your push cart or even your golf bag, giving quick access to shield yourself and keep playing. This is thanks in no small part to the development of polyester and cotton, which forces rain to bounce off the surface of the jacket and not build up in the fibres and weigh you down. 

Brands like Nike and Callaway use technological fabrics that can maintain the look and feel of the jacket even after being used many times. Other companies like Fairway & Greene and Bogner maintain the classic style of golf’s traditions but with modern materials, and brands such as Original Penguin and Rhone, put the style back into function.

We’ve rounded up the best golf jackets for men that will give you a stylish, protective edge next time you’re out on the course.
