Maui Jim Cliff House Aviator Sunglasses

Editor’s Choice 2019

For those golfers who prefer the lifestyle look on the course, the Maui Jim Cliff House Aviator sunglasses should fit the bill. Whilst golf specific sunglasses have really made their mark over the last ten years or so, not everyone wants such a sporty look, or feels the need to have an additional pair just for the fairways; some of us are quite happy to wear the same pair we’d take on holiday.

Talking of holidays, Maui Jim’s story will make you want to book one – a golfing one, perhaps. Based in Maui, part of Hawaii, the company began selling sunglasses on the beach nearly forty years ago, and has grown its collection from seven styles to over 125.


The Cliff House model – which gets its name from a stunning location on the Big Island – are classic sunglasses that come with polarized lenses that offer bright, clear views everywhere you look.

Because of Maui Jim’s colourful beginnings, the company prides itself on enhancing the world’s true vivid colours in detail – great for us golfers who frequently find ourselves staring out over lush green fairways.

Golf benefits

Its PolarizedPlus2 lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare, while reducing light from above and below, allowing your eyes to relax. Whilst not made specifically for golf, they’ll certainly help you on the course by giving contours clear definition even in the brightest conditions. Come the summer, when you’re playing into the sun, or stood over a putt in the bright sunlight, you need that clarity. Maui Jim is a brand that delivers that, with style.

The Blue Hawaii lens provides a stylish new look that offers the same colour enhancement and clarity as all other Maui Jim lenses, although other options are available covering all conditions. Meanwhile, the lens material is ultra lightweight, and scratch and shatter resistant, which is good news for clumsy golfers.
