A Guide to Custom Golf Apparel

Golf is a fantastic sport for relaxing your mind and strengthening your body. You can also network with other big wigs at your local golf club or play with colleagues for team-building purposes. However, you can only enjoy your time golfing if you wear the right kit. You can even take things further and impress your fellow golfers by donning custom golf apparel.

The Importance of High-Quality Golf Apparel

High-quality golf apparel doesn’t just look good. It feels good. You can count on the best golf apparel to boost your golfing experience by offering:

  • Comfort: Quality golf clothing features premium fabrics that prevent chafing during your game. The fabric should be breathable and moisture-wicking to keep you cool and minimize sweating. You can also find golf clothing with fabrics that dry quickly to prevent ugly sweat spots.
  • Protection: You can find golf apparel that offers UV protection to shield you from harmful sun rays while enjoying your golfing game. For cold or wet days, you can opt for golf jackets that can keep you warm and dry.
  • Full Range of Motion: The best golf clothing have a stretchy material and comfortable fit to ensure unrestricted movement while swinging your club or moving around.

Opt for custom golf apparel if you want to be the most impressive-looking player on the golf course. You can customize the clothing by embroidering your name or brand logo on the outfit. Besides making your golf clothing stand out from the crowd, it’s an effective tactic for promoting your business or event. Custom golf apparel is also an excellent choice if making golf uniforms for your team.

Important Pieces of Apparel for Golf

Golf apparel goes beyond a nice polo shirt. Since the game requires looking good and staying protected while exposed to the elements, your outfit should include these pieces:

  • Golf Polo: A golf polo shirt is a stylish yet functional short sleeve shirt with a collar and two to three buttons at the neck. Various golf polo shirt styles are available from different brands, and you can find shirts with cotton, polyester, or cotton/polyester blend fabrics.
  • Waterproof Layering: Golf is an outdoor sport, and you may sometimes have to play during wet weather. For such occasions, you can wear a lightweight fleece or terry jacket or pullover that can keep you dry and warm.
  • Shorts or Pants: Men can wear shorts or pants at the golf course, while women can wear shorts, pants, or a skirt. The right one to wear will depend on your style choice and golfing environment. For instance, shorts are better in hot and humid locations, while pants are a better option if mosquitoes are an issue at your golf course.
  • Hats: A cap or visor with a long or wide brim will protect your face against harsh sun rays and keep the sun out of your eyes while you play.
  • Gloves: Golfing gloves are stylish, but besides being aesthetically impressive, they can protect your hands against chafing while swinging your club. Quality golf gloves can also improve your club grip, which can be helpful if you have sweaty palms.

Top Brands for Custom Golf Apparel

As we earlier mentioned, several brands make golf apparel. If you intend on making custom golf apparel, you should opt for a brand that makes clothing with fabrics that fit your customization needs. For instance, custom embroidery works best on clothing made with a densely woven fabric that can withstand embroidery stitching.

Some of the most sought-after brands for custom golf apparel include:


Callaway offers various polo shirts, hats, pullovers, and vests for male and female golfers. You can get golf apparel from the brand in different sizes and attractive colors. Also, depending on your preference, you can get Callaway golf apparel made from 100% polyester or poly blend fabrics.

We highly recommend Callaway polo shirts for their Dri-FIT fabric, which wicks moisture and dries quickly to keep you comfortable throughout the day. More reasons to love Callaway clothing are their lightness, soft feel, durability, and suitability for custom embroidery.


Adidas is among the most popular sporting apparel brands in the world. Golfers can get everything from polo shirts and pullovers to hats and vests from the brand. While various Adidas polo shirts are available, some of the best ones have a polyester pique fabric that is soft on the skin and stretchy for a comfortable fit.

These shirts also have moisture management properties that keep you dry and cool while golfing. You can get Adidas golf apparel in various colors and sizes for male and female golfers.

Greg Norman

Greg Norman is a classic golf apparel company, and anyone who knows anything about golf knows that the man, the myth, the Shark, Greg Norman is the man behind this brand. That means it's for golfers, by golfers. Greg Norman Apparel has been a top-ranked brand identity apparel manufacturer since 1977. Their line of apparel combines performance, luxury, and style.

With men's and women's fits, it's easy to see why everyone loves a good Greg Norman in their golf rotation.


Nike has clothed top golfers like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy for decades. The brand’s swoosh logo is iconic, and every piece of apparel made by the brand is of top quality. Nike apparel you can get for the golf course include stylish short or long sleeve polo shirts, caps, and quarter-zip pullovers.

Like Callaway polo shirts, Nike golf shirts have Dri-FIT moisture-wicking technology to keep you sweat and odor-free. The shirt’s softness feels lovely on the skin, and the tailoring ensures a full range of motion when you take a swing.

Under Armour

Under Armour golf apparel is among the pricier options on the market, but the brand justifies its price by offering durable and stylish golfing clothing. The polo shirts have a snag-free finish that prevents loose threads or pilling, and the athletic-loose fit delivers superior comfort. Every apparel from the brand will retain its shape and color after several washes and wears, and you can get clothing in colors that best complement your custom embroidery design.


IZOD golf apparels made from polyester and cotton/polyester blend fabrics are top sellers. Fan favorites from the brand have odor- and bacteria-resistant fabrics optimized with moisture management technology. While much of IZOD’s golf apparel is unisex, you can find multiple options made specifically for women.

Best Customizable Jackets/Quarter Zips for Golf

Layering with jackets can keep you warm and dry if golfing on a cold or wet day. However, not every jacket is suitable for golfers. You want a lightweight jacket made with polyester fleece or a poly blend fabric (like polyester/spandex or polyester/cotton). Such fabrics are wind and water-resistant to protect you against the elements.

Besides jackets, other clothes you could wear for a cold day on the golf course are quarter-zip pullovers or sweatshirts. Unlike jackets, you can wear a pullover without an undershirt, but the pullover must have a moisture-wicking fabric that prevents uncomfortable sweating.

Do you want custom embroidered quarter-zip pullovers for your team? Below are some of your best options:

  • Sport-Tek 1/4-Zip Sweatshirt: A durable pullover made from 65/35 ring-spun combed cotton/poly fleece. The stretchy twill-taped neck and rib knit cuffs keep out cold gusts, and you can get the sweatshirt in several eye-catching colors.
  • Under Armour Tech Quarter-Zip: This Under Armour pullover provides maximum comfort with its breathable, moisture-wicking fabric. The sweater is also odor-resistant to keep you smelling fresh after your 18 holes.
  • Nike Sport Cover-Up: You can embroider your company logo or name on this lovely Nike pullover's chest, shoulder, or back. The 61/39 cotton/polyester sweater is available in black, dark grey, and blue, and you can get it in sizes ranging from small to 3XL.

Best Custom Golf Hats

Custom embroidered golf hats are perfect for teams because you do not have to worry about getting different sizes. However, you don’t want a hat that only looks good. The hat should also offer adequate sun protection and be durable and comfortable. Some of the best hats for custom embroidery that check these boxes are:

  • Adidas Core Performance Max Cap: The hat’s polyester fabric feels soft against the scalp and forehead. You can have your brand logo embroidered on the front, and the one-size-fits-all hat is available in five cool colors.
  • Nike Unstructured Twill Cap: The bill on this mid-profile hat is long enough to protect your face and eyes from harmful UV rays. The breathable cotton/poly twill fabric will keep your head cool, and you can pair the hat with various golf apparel styles.
