We look at some of the best golf hats for women currently on the market.
Best Women’s Golf Hats
It’s very fashionable to wear the best golf hats, and fortunately this trend is not confined to the catwalk and high street, because whatever the weather, women golfers have a fantastic selection of headwear to choose from.
Gone are the days of a plain and simple cap or visor to protect your eyes and head from the sun, or an itchy woolly hat in a limited choice of colours to help keep the cold at bay. And let’s not forget a golfer’s must-have rain hat, which in fairness is not the easiest accessory to design and deliver in the style stakes without compromising performance.
Come rain or shine, today’s hats are not just functional, but a serious fashion statement. We have beanies, bobble hats and headbands, most of which are fleece-lined and some feature a touch of sparkle to brighten up the fairways. Caps often come with a handy magnetic ball marker, and the latest bucket hats still allow you to look the part … almost!
Here are some of the best hats to accessorise in style:
