Golf gloves provide an extra layer of traction between your hand and the club. Whether it’s to improve your grip or to protect your hands from blisters, they’re an essential accessory for every golfer.
Many players find a glove that fits like a second skin and stick with it. But there are also different styles and materials that all feel different on your hand.
As golfers have long known, gloves are essential to a great grip. A well-fitting glove will feel like a second skin. The right glove can eliminate blisters, reduce friction, and build confidence in your game.
Leather golf gloves provide a premium feel that is trusted by professional players. Made with breathable cabretta leather this glove is built for all weather conditions and offers a comfortable fit. The glove is 0.45mm thin and features a contoured fit wristband that ensures a precise fit.
The glove comes with ventilation perforations that allow air to circulate and the material is quick-drying. The glove will mould to the hand with continued wear and this can be adjusted using the closure tab. The glove is made to perform for the dominant hand and is the first ever designed with this specific use in mind. It is insanely grippy, even on the sweatiest hands!
Typically constructed from a lightweight material such as spandex or mesh, synthetic golf gloves are designed to fit like a second skin. They breathe to reduce sweat and can also help improve gripping power. They are durable and often more affordable than leather.
Synthetic golf gloves are also machine washable which makes them convenient to clean after a round. However, it is important to follow manufacturer suggestions on cleaning as putting the gloves in standard laundry settings can damage certain materials.
Some manufacturers offer a wide range of options for golfers including colored gloves with floral designs to match the attire of women’s golfing outfits or gloves without fingers to provide freer movement and prevent damage to manicured hands. There are even hybrid golf gloves that use a combination of Cabretta and synthetic materials for increased comfort and performance. Regardless of the style or materials used, all golf gloves should be inspected for durability before buying and properly stored in a glove shaper to extend their lifespan.
Golf gloves are a staple item in most golfer’s equipment bags. They help provide a strong grip on the club, especially when conditions are cold and wet. There are a variety of options available to suit any budget and playing style. Manufacturers use either natural leather or synthetic materials to create a glove for every need and weather condition.
Choosing the right glove will dramatically improve your game. The glove should fit like a second skin and not hang over the ends of your fingers. It should also be comfortable and allow you to stretch your fingers.

Golf is a conservative sport in some ways, with huge puppet headcovers and John Daly’s wild outfits, but there are golf gloves that break convention as well. The Bender line, for instance, features a giraffe or zebra patterning along the microfiber back, adding some sizzle to what’s normally just another golf accessory. This glove still delivers the same high-grade cabretta that gives golf gloves their classic feel and comfort, though.
A terry cloth cuff helps with a comfortable fit, while the synthetic material across the back and knuckles prevents wrinkling and forms-fitting the hand. Cabretta is a delicate natural material that requires a bit of care to keep it looking and feeling good; it’s best washed sparingly, and with the glove hung up to dry between uses.
