Since golf is an outdoor sport, it’s natural for people to assume that they can’t really head to the greens in cold weather. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The fact of the matter is that there is no reason why you should let colder temperatures dictate your opportunities for a spot of golf. If you are travelling to Pattaya on a golf trip during the colder months, dressing appropriately is important.
Fortunately, there are a number of new fabrics that are now used to manufacture thermal golf attire that can keep you cosy and warm even when the temperatures dip. Here we discuss which garments are best suited for golfing in cold weather:
#1 Base layer
You will find a number of battery-operated base layer golf clothes that have excellent warmth and moisture-wicking properties; this means you don’t have to feel constricted or all bundled-up when you are playing a game of golf. These materials are stretchable and antibacterial and you can adjust the temperature in this layer too.
#2 Woollen long underwear
Thermal underwear such as the ones made of Merino wool adds warmth and it’s highly breathable. These garments are designed to prevent chafing and this is highly beneficial when you are playing cold weather golf.
#3 Wool wind sweaters
While there are a number of nylon tracksuits that are sold as golf wear, the swishing sounds they make can be quite a distraction, not just for you, but for those that are golfing with you as well. You should consider wearing a wool wind sweater (with lined wind protection) instead, as it provides warmth without affecting wind-resistance.
#4 Sock liners made of polypropylene
If your feet are freezing, that can impact your focus; however, wearing multiple layers of socks simply makes you uncomfortable. Most golf shoes aren’t built to combat colder temperatures. This is where sock liners made of polypropylene come to save the day. This is a light product and provides an excellent base layer that helps keep your soles dry and your toes warm, without really having to wear golf shoes that are larger than your actual foot size.
#5 Battery-operated warm utility gloves
You will find larger golf mitts and they will definitely keep you warm when you are playing in colder weather, however you can’t really swing clubs comfortably when you are wearing these. Today, many sports gear companies manufacture battery-operated warm utility gloves; these offer the right amount of win- resistance, warmth and a proper grip.
#6 Thermal hats
One way to keep your body warm in colder temperatures is to keep your head covered. And so, it’s a good idea to have a proper golfing hat too. You can choose from fleece or thermal-lined hats that have a dry and warm inner layer and a water-repellent outer later and they look very stylish and elegant.
