Golf sweaters don’t have to be ho-hum looking. Yes, they serve a purpose keeping us warm, but they can also go beyond basic and be very fashionable.

Advances in knit technology have an endless and mind-boggling amount of possibilities. Articles on www.knittingindustry.com describe the latest and greatest – blends, colors, patterns, performance aspects, design intricacies – all given flight with today’s knit processes.

We gathered some examples … see which ones you think might up your golf knitwear game.

G/FORE

G/FORE men’s Double Stripe Quarter Zip ($195) made from merino wool has two different color vertical stripes on a grey background that is as eye-catching as it is classy. It’s not too early to think about holiday gifts and we think any male in your life would love opening a box with this gem inside.

On the women’s side, the Double V Quarter-Zip ($225) has a luxurious blend of cashmere and merino wool yarn for extra cozy softness. The contrast color detail in the deep V framing the zipper is a very flattering, updated varsity sweater look. Again, we’d put this one on our gift alert list.

Greyson Clothiers

Greyson Clothiers Camowold men’s Crewneck sweater ($385) with its modern tailored fit and cool camo graphic will definitely stand out on the course. Made from merino wool and cashmere, it naturally fends off the cold and is soft to the touch.

Hoodies on the golf course? Heck yeah, especially when the Koko Hoodie sweater ($285) is made from a lightweight cashmere and merino wool blend. It also has technical aspects that add thermal insulation and freedom of movement. Think how much that hoodie will keep your neck warm too.

Tory Sport

Tory Sport Performance Cashmere Two-Tone sweater for women ($298) is made from a cashmere CoolMax blend so it’s lightweight, breathable and comfortable. The ultra soft blend makes it perfect for travel and sport, while the green/pink contrast colors bump up your wardrobe options.

J.Lindeberg Golf

J.Lindeberg continues to manipulate its logo into striking patterns like on its Azim Coolmax Wool sweater for men ($295). The fabric band creates a versatile moisture and sweat-wicking function that stays cool and dry when needed but warm at the same time when temperatures drop.

For women, we gravitate towards the Erine sweater ($175) because of the bright red/orange chevron v-neck stripes on a dark mahogany knit. Easily a stunner on or off the golf course, this fashion knit piece also comes in a cool black and blue combination.

Puma Golf x Malbon Golf

Puma’s collaboration with Malbon Golf creates a retro looking sweater for men ($128). Made from a poly/cotton blend, the contrast ribbed stripes at the cuffs and hem, along with the unique buckets logo create a truly individual looking piece that can go street to links.

Don’t forget about knits for the top of your head too. Puma’s PwrWarm Beanie ($26) has neat striping, a tri-color pom and fleece lining for warmth.
