Different Golf Hat Styles

Different Golf Hat Styles

Going on the golf course and putting a few holes in for the day is a great past time. The sun is shining, the weather is great, and it’s a great time for most. When going out on the green it’s best to have the right gear. Some of this includes the right clubs and even the right headgear. Having a good golfing hat not only adds a bit of style but a lot of functionality. The styles differ and can range from 5 Panel Golf Hats to even bucket hats. Let’s take a look at some of them and what they have to offer.

The bucket hat

The bucket hat is a piece of headgear that has a brim that comes down at an angle. It essentially looks like a bucket that flares out a bit, hence the name. While this may not be the most fashionable piece to wear it is affordable and comes in different materials.

Some of the materials that it comes in are denim, cotton, and even canvas. This also makes it a versatile choice for accommodating different weather situations. Something like this can range from 10 to even 50 dollars. It’s best to shop around and buy a few to accommodate different environments.

A visor cap

A visor is a great choice for summer and sunny conditions. These caps are just a headband and a fairly big visor on the front. The visor is usually some translucent, shading material that helps block out the sun and reduce glare. They can also come in cotton material with a shorter brim. This is great because a lovely sunny day can put a damper on golfers shot game.

Lining up a shot can be complicated enough. A visor can help by reducing that pesky sun glare. This way a golfer can concentrate on the game and not the sun.

The materials can vary but most visor hats are very similar. Some are made from cotton, denim, and a sort of translucent green material. They can range in price depending on the manufacturer. This can be as low as 10 dollars to even as high as 50 to 60 bucks.

5 Panel Golf Hats

These golf hats are very similar to what most people think of like a hat. It’s made from five panels stitched together and has a normal brim. They do a great job of adding a lot of functions as well as looking pretty good. They do come in a variety of materials and styles and this is great. This means that there are a lot of options to match to an outfit if that’s an issue.

Some companies even offer a service to embroider these types of hats. This can be pretty cool or a little cheesy. It depends on how it’s done. A good embroider can help mark a piece of headgear. This is good because sometimes accidents do happen and hats get blown off, left behind or just lost. When a person’s name is on the front of it this makes it easier for it to be returned.


Gongi out golfing is a great past time. Going out for a few holes on the green can help loosen up a really bad day. Having the right gear can make a world of difference. The right hat can turn a bad game into a good one by offering some functionality. Most of these hats do a great job at what they do. Every golfer should have at least one of these in their arsenal.
