Golf Equipment Gloves

Golf equipment can be expensive and there are certain golfing consumables that you will purchase repeatedly such as golf balls, tee pegs and golf gloves.

We have discussed which type of golf balls to use to suit your golf in previous articles but not yet discussed golf gloves.

These can be expensive these days and although you can get bargain gloves from outlets such as Decathlon and Sports Direct or from the internet, generally you get what you pay for.

Assuming you have paid circa €15 for a golf glove just how do you make it last longer so that you get your monies worth?

Here are a few tips:


  • Practice on the range with an older glove.
  • Store the glove flat and in a plastic sleeve when not in use.
  • Take the glove off between shots.
  • Wash the glove in a washing machine with other items of the household wash with a soft detergent.
  • Check the glove for ‘wear markings’ because if the wear pattern is on the palm you could have a problem with your grip or have handle of the incorrect size and if the wear pattern is under the thumb you could be gripping to hard.

Just give the above a try and you will find it saves you a few hard earned pennies.
