Choosing the right golf glove can be as important as choosing the right spouse. A well-made glove will give you an excellent grip and feel, wick away the sweat and stand up to course conditions.
Golf gloves usually fall into 3 categories: leather, leather/synthetic blends and all weather. Here’s a quick rundown of each:
Leather Golf Glove
The choice of pros, all-leather golf gloves fit like a second skin, giving you superior control on the links. Often softer and more comfortable than a synthetic blend, a leather golf glove is a great choice for games where reputations are on the line.
- Leather golf gloves will stretch with use – buy a slightly smaller size than you’re used to
- Look for gloves with mesh or vents to allow your hand to breathe
- Air dry your leather gloves – they will shrink in the dryer

Synthetic/Leather Golf Glove
More moisture-resistant than a leather golf glove, a synthetic/leather glove is a durable and lightweight option for golfers on a budget. Many synthetic/leather golf gloves have genuine leather on the palm – to help with grip and feel – and synthetic leather on the exterior.

All Weather Golf Glove
For the die-hard golfers among us, neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night will stay us from the game. If you’re a die-hard, you definitely want a synthetic all weather golf glove, which is especially designed for wet, cold and extremely humid conditions.
