Golf Apparel Gift Guide 2015 – The GolfBlogger List

GolfBlogger’s Golf Apparel Gift Guide 2015 features the best of the best of the golf apparel products that I’ve received for review this past year. A lot of things show up on my doorstep from manufacturers hopeful for a mention and quite frankly, not all of them make it to the pages of this golf blog. As GolfBlogger is not my day job, I don’t have the time or desire to review bad products. Here then, are a few apparel products that I’ve tried and thoroughly enjoyed.

Pebble Beach Brand Heathered 1/4 Zip Pullover
Pebble Beach Brand Heathered 1/4 Zip Pullover

Pebble Beach Quarter Zip Pullover
On Amazon: Pebble Beach Apparel
Grade: A
Teacher’s Comments: A great golf sweater.

The Pebble Beach pullover is in the Goldilocks Zone: not too heavy, or too light, but just right. I’ve worn it on a couple of very chilly mornings and been warm enough, but still found it comfortable as a sunny upper fifties day emerged. Warmer than that, and I go to shirtsleeves and begin to wonder if I should have worn shorts or a lighter pair of pants.

Swiftwick Socks

Swiftwick Pursuit 7 Socks
On Amazon: Swiftwick PURSUIT Seven Socks

Grade: A+
Teacher’s Comments: Very Comfortable

As a teacher, and a dedicated walking golfer, I spend an inordinate amount of time on my feet. Thus, I have developed a very definite set of preferences when it comes to socks: they need to regulate moisture to keep the foot dry and blister free, fit snugly so they don’t slide and cause blisters, and have cushioning on the heel for impact.

  1. You can’t beat those Haggar Cool 18 shorts. I have a few different brands/styles also, but the only guaranteed comfort is the Haggars which I wear one of my 6 pairs 95% of the rounds (which I wear shirts). They also make a Cool 18 slacks, which are what I wear most of the time at work when it is too warm for cords.

    As for socks, I have a few pairs of the kentwool that I have really begun to love. Probably going to ask for some regular length kentwools for Christmas.
