Umbrella buyers guide
It’s important to keep a few things in mind when you purchase a golf umbrella. There are many styles and options on the market, and if you want to choose a golf umbrella that will last, it pays to do a bit of research.
Is a golf umbrella good for sun protection ?
Depending on what type of golf umbrella you purchase, it can be an excellent sun protection option. The most important thing to look for is that the umbrella has some UVF or SPF protection built into the fabric. It’s great to stay in the shade, but it’s even better to have an additional layer to protect you from UV rays.
What size should i get ?
The size of the golf umbrella you get truly depends on how much you intend to play in the rain. If the umbrella is for an emergency situation or downpour, go with the smaller size that folds up into your golf bag. If you are a tournament golfer that will stay on the course regardless of conditions, the 64″ to 68″ umbrellas are the way to go.
Will a golf umbrella attach to a push cart ?
Most pushcarts are going to have an attachment for a golf umbrella. If your Golf push cart does not have one, there are umbrella holders that you can purchase to attach your umbrella. If you are purchasing a new golf umbrella, pay close attention to the handle size. You will want something that is going to fit in your umbrella holder and not be handing out of your Electric or gas powered golf cart.
Hopefully, these choices for the best golf umbrellas have helped you make an informed decision. It gets a bit overwhelming because of all of the companies that claim their umbrellas are built for the golfer. As golfers, we know what you need, and any of the options on this list will absolutely do the trick.
