The 11 best golf jumpers on the market (2024)

Golf Care, 13th February 2024


Although some golfers play throughout winter, spring is often a time when many come out of ‘hibernation’, and golf courses gradually start getting busier again.

However, don’t be fooled by the springtime sun—it’s likely to still be quite chilly out there on the greens, so now is the perfect time to invest in a new golf jumper.

In this article, we’ll look at some of the best golf jumpers currently on the market—and these days, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Whether it be lambswool, merino, a quarter-zip, half-zip, mid-layer, or fleece, the beauty of modern golf jumpers (especially the best golf jumpers) is that they’re constructed with technologically advanced fabrics to ensure they’re stretchy, warm, water-repellent, and durable.

Put simply, a good golf jumper is an essential piece of golf clothing. So, which one will you choose? Let’s take a closer look at some of the best golf jumpers on the market.

The Ping Nordic Half-Zip is another excellent choice when the courses are chilly. What’s great about this golf jumper is that it keeps you warm while not hampering your swing at all.

A jumper that repels water is worth its weight in gold, especially with the changeable weather that comes with spring in the UK.

But this jumper is a match for any April shower, cleverly adapting to whatever the weather’s doing—ensuring you keep warm on colder days while allowing excess heat to escape when it gets warmer.

Designed with a slick, contemporary style, it’s wonderfully light, breathable, and looks great off the course.

This half-zip golf jumper from Galvin Green features INSULA technology, meaning the fabric has built-in air chambers, warmed by your body heat to provide effective and long-lasting thermal insulation.

The soft, stretchy material fits to your upper body shape for enhanced comfort, and the chest pocket is ideal for your phone or scorecard. Galvin Green branding on the pocket adds a touch of extra style.


Sunderland Aspen Mid-Layer

  • Adjustable drawcord
  • Teflon-coated finish

The Sunderland Aspen Mid Layer is one of the most premium and professional-looking golf jumpers you’ll find. It provides plenty of warmth without compromising any breathability.

Coated in a Teflon finish, the jumper is weatherproof, so it’s a good one to have in your golf wardrobe all-year-round, not just for the spring.

Some really smart colours are available in the range, but the blue/black (pictured) gets the nod from us. It’ll certainly help inject a bit of colour into your playing attire!

  • Waist pockets
  • Elasticated drawstring at hem

This highly versatile and stylish golf jumper can be worn as an outer layer or even as a mid-layer when it’s especially cold.

Key features

  • Lined detailing on the waistband, neck and cuffs
  • Regular fit
  • Lightweight

Sometimes, a classic is best. This quarter-zip jumper may be from Mizumo’s AW20 range, but it still strikes a chord today.

Lined detailing on the waistband, neck and cuffs adds a touch of class to the overall look and feel, making this jumper just as smart off the course as it is on it.


Callaway Full-Zip Waffle Jacket

Key features

  • Opti-Dri moisture moving technology
  • 95% polyester / 5% spandex
  • Stretch fabric

It might be referred to as a jacket, but the soft fleece material here really makes this more of a jumper.

Let’s call it a hybrid—either way, Callaway’s Opti-Dri moisture moving technology draws moisture away from your body, meaning you stay comfortable and dry, while the stretch fabric ensures your freedom of movement in the swing.

It’s lightweight, trendy, and a favourite amongst many of Callaway’s Tour players—and it’s not hard to see why!


Glenmuir Lomond V-Neck Lambswool Golf Sweater

Key features

  • Glenmuir signature performance finish
  • 100% lambswool
  • Elastic shape retention

We think every golfer should own a premium quality knitted garment. And if you’re only going to have one, you can’t go too far wrong with a Glenmuir Lomond V-neck.

This stylish golf jumper combines tasteful modern design with premium quality, inspired by Glenmuir’s rich legacy. Made from 100% premium lambswool, it provides maximum comfort and freedom of movement.

And with plenty of colours to choose from in the range, why not choose a couple to mix things up?!

Key features

  • 100% recycled polyester
  • UPF 50+ protection
  • Moisture-wicking properties

Part of the adidas Golf ‘Tour’ clothing range, this jumper features a fleece fabric for extra warmth and a moisture-wicking finish for comfort.

The stand collar, heather detail, and adidas logo on the left chest really add to the style, but it’s the sporty look that makes this golf jumper such a popular choice among Tour pros.

What’s more—it’s also got a UPF 50+ Protection rating: the maximum sun protective rating achievable for fabrics.


Oscar Jacobson Loke Quarter-Zip Sweater

Key features

  • Innovative cut lines
  • Stretch fabric
  • Warmth-locking

This modern and versatile golf jumper is the perfect mid-layer choice, and because of its full-stretch technical fabric, it won’t bulk up if you need to wear it underneath a waterproof jacket—win-win!

It’s easy to put on and take off, with soft, secure cuffs and hems aiding the overall fitted feel.

A colour-contrast Oscar Jacobson logo on the right shoulder helps finish the style nicely.
