When you go on a golf outing, your style is almost as important as your swing. Having a stylish belt not only adds a bit of flair to an otherwise standard ensemble, but it can also be functional in keeping your pants and polo firmly in place. No golf outfit is really complete without one! Check out our top picks for golf belts below.
What to Look for in a Golf Belt
Belts have only really been standard in the last 100 years or so. Before the Roaring ’20s, pants didn’t include belt loops. Now there are many options available to add a pop of color to your wardrobe. Here are some things to consider when making a choice:
- Belt Style: Braided belts have gained popularity in recent years, but you can also grab a belt made of any different materials. Some will have more stretch; some will feature unique leathers. Make sure to find the belt style that matches you and your needs.
- Buckle Style: The buckle does most of the work and is front-and-center on your outfit. You can find hole-less belts that have a hidden mechanism behind the buckle. There are also O or D ring belts that replace a standard buckle with an adjustable ring setup.
- Personal Style: Regardless of what type of belt you choose, a truly fashionable belt should stand out on its own. If you’d rather let your outfit shine in the spotlight, find a more solid-colored version.
Best Braided: PGA TOUR Multicolor Stretch Belt
Braided belts are a classic choice for major adjustability. This belt by PGA TOUR is 100% nylon and won’t restrict you like other belts. Since this belt has a braided design, you can work the nickel brush finish buckle into any part of the woven fabric. The elasticity of the nylon will also allow for a more comfortable fit than a standard belt with a fixed length.
