Every top brand produces quality golf gloves, but there are some brands that just stand out from the rest. A few factors go into determining how impressive a golf glove is and these brands seem to always get it right.

Let’s take a look at what each of the top brands are offering in 2023.

FootJoy




FootJoy StaSof Golf Glove – $26.00 / £22.99 RRP

This is one of the most worn gloves in professional golf – so it must be decent. Made from durable performance Pittards leather, this glove is very good value for money when considering comfort and durability. A glove might not excite you as much as other pieces of golf equipment but this one might.


FootJoy HyperFLX Golf Glove – $22.00 / £19.99 RRP

FootJoy are proud to be known as the No.1 glove in golf. Personally, we think none come close to the HyperFLX. This glove offers everything you need. It’s comfortable, durable, and stylish (as much as a glove can be). Its 100% Cabretta leather and Microvent FiberSof material helps to make it FootJoy’s most breathable golf glove.

FootJoy WeatherSof Golf Glove – $12.00 / £10.99 RRP

This is FootJoy’s best-selling golf glove, probably because of how durable and dependable it is. You can rely on this glove in all weather conditions – 90 million golfers do already. It may not be leather but it feels as good as thanks to the FiberSof palm and back.

Titleist

Titleist Player’s Golf Glove – $26.00 / £23.00 RRP

Titleist are notorious for quality equipment and even their golf gloves are the envy of other golf heavyweights. Arguably their finest glove is the Player’s, which some of the best players in the world opt for. This is an ultra-thin glove for comfort and breathability.

Titleist Perma-Soft Golf Glove – $20 / £18 RRP

A serious competitor to the Player’s golf glove, the Perma-Soft is one for all golfers to enjoy. The high-quality leather is very comfortable and breathable. Although, this isn’t the most durable glove on the market.

Callaway

Callaway Tour Authentic Golf Glove – $23.99 / £19.99

The premium offering from Callaway is slightly cheaper than the equivalent from other brands, but that doesn’t make this glove inferior. Callaway have long been manufacturers of quality golf equipment and their Tour Authentic glove is exactly that. It’s comfortable, durable and breathable.

Callaway Weather Spann Golf Glove – $12.00 / £14.00 RRP

This glove incorporates FUSETECH synthetic material and strategically placed leather in order to deliver a golf glove that’s comfortable, breathable and durable. The Weather Spann is a great option to wear year-round.

How to choose the best golf glove

Depending on who you ask, you might get told different brands to look for. As already alluded to, there are other brands that manufacture quality golf gloves, but they just don’t quite come close enough to these top brands. When you’re buying a golf glove there are some things you should consider

Comfort – You’ll likely be wearing this glove for a few rounds. You want to make sure it’s comfortable. This is arguably the most important element to consider when you buy a new golf glove.

Size – Ensuring you have a glove that fits is very important because if the glove is too big or too small it won’t work properly. You want a glove to fit like a second skin otherwise there’s little point in wearing it.

Leather or synthetic – There is no right or wrong when it comes to wearing a leather or synthetic golf glove. It comes down to personal preference and price. More often than not synthetic is cheaper than leather – even though they typically last longer. Leather tends to be slightly more comfortable and performs better in warm weather.
