How to Dress Warm for the Cold Weather on the Golf Course

BH Updated

The month of January has been unseasonably cold with temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s.  Playing golf in these temperatures can be miserable if you’re not dressed properly.  On the other hand, if you are dressed properly,  playing in the cooler weather can be quite enjoyable and you will also have an upper hand on your opponents.  Here are a couple of suggestions that I have for battling the cold weather on the golf course.

  1. Stocking cap - Simple enough, but I have found that keeping you’re head warm will help keep your entire body warmer.
  2. Compression Shirt - This is a relatively new piece of clothing in the market place, but a compression shirt is a skin tight shirt that helps block any cold winds of the day and allows for you to stay warmer and swing away without that bulky clothes feeling.
  3. Turtle neck shirt - I like to place a turtle neck shirt over my compression shirt for added protection of my neck area.
  4. Rain Pants - I have found through years that if your lower body stays warm, the rest of your body will stay warm as well.  In addition, I feel more stable and grounded in my swing when I where the rain pants.

So don’t give up playing golf when the weather seems to cold to enjoy the day.  Follow my simple tips above and you will find that you can have fun and play well when the weather is a little colder than normal.
