The 5 Best Golf Umbrellas
You booked your tee time and now it’s raining. Now what? You’re either going to stand there in the rain or you could pull your handy golf umbrella out of your bag.
You need a great big golf umbrella that’s going to stand up to the wind, the rain and look good while keeping you dry on the course.
In this post, we hunted down 5 of the best golf umbrellas on the market today that are going to keep you nice and try out on the golf course if it starts to rain.
If you are shopping umbrellas as gift ideas, and you want a lot of value at a low price, this pack is the answer you are looking for. They look sharp, they keep you dry, and the coloring is great for keeping the sun off as well, when it’s sunny out on a hot day at the course.
When it comes to high winds and stormy days, these umbrellas aren’t the best, and will suffer under the pressure of hard use. But for most days at the course, they function perfectly. The Woodworm logo is an especially nice touch. This is an inexpensive golf umbrella that’s going to do the trick just fine.
Whether you want to go big and have a sturdy umbrella that will keep you swinging in inclement weather, need a sunshade for the day while hunting for your ball that’s gone astray, or just need something to hold you over until a shower passes, RainStoppers has your solution. This is a huge umbrella that if needed, can keep the whole foursome dry. It’s windproof and comes in a variety of colors.
At an overall length of 43 inches closed, it will fit in the golf bag right next to your drivers. It’s not impervious to flipping inside-out in a strong wind, but when forced into the torrent, it will right itself and keep on working. High quality, though it’s possible that there is such a thing as too big.
Some umbrellas come with this wonderful flap on top which flexes in the wind like a valve, to protect the rest of the skeletal structure, and this is one of them. The flap top will take the stress of heavy winds away, without destroying your umbrella when it catches one, or pulling you away like a sail.
Two piece canopies are hit and miss. They aren’t for everyone, and many times they are too small to provide adequate coverage without leaking, but this one seems to work fine. It comes with a lifetime warranty, a nice extra. Closed, it’s still very large, over 41 inches, so you’ll have to put it with your clubs.
Another umbrella from Atree. If you want to add a splash of color to your golf accessories, the available options with this umbrella should fit your needs. It doesn’t have the extra wind flap, but during normal playing conditions, this should work just fine to keep you dry.
Depending on the model you choose, the size will vary from 44 to 62 inches, so if size is a factor, double check your order. The umbrella is finely crafted from good materials, but if you like golfing in hurricanes, sooner or later you are going to wear it out. The upside is that it comes with a lifetime warranty.
It’s one thing to be rainproof, it’s even better to be truly windproof, but when there’s a model available in this writer’s favorite color scheme (black with green lettering), then I’m immediately sold. The color options are somewhat limited, but there are several to pick from. The big 62/52 top has you and your whole family covered under the enormous canopy. This umbrella could almost double as a tent.
Overall, this is one of the best umbrellas you can buy, for a variety of purposes. So if you want to take it off the golf course and use it on a safari trip, or just to keep you dry in the next heavy storm, take a look. Due to the size, I would not recommend letting your children carry it in gale-force winds though; they might float away.
We love this golf umbrella and you will too, especially for the price.
