At FastBreakPlay we can boil this choice down to a few great options of both men’s and women’s golf gloves one of which is sure to meet any golfer’s needs.
Most popular golf glove
TaylorMade has created an incredibly breathable glove. The construction of the glove is genuine leather making the glove comfortable and long-lasting while also providing great grip on the club.
Because of the leather construction, the glove offers a very thin layer of material that provides great traction yet still provides the ultimate in comfort. TaylorMade incorporated micro perforations into the glove to enhance breathability and the glove also comes with four-way stretch material to ensure a snug and proper fit.
This glove comes in at a price of around $18. One of the owners of this glove commented that “the fit is consistent for me and the durability of the gloves is perfectly fine for my style and amount of play.”
A very high-end golf glove
This golf glove from Callaway offers Opti Feel and leather construction. What this means for customers is a premium feel with the ultimate in fit and comfort. There are perforations on the palm, the thumb, and the fingers to increase moisture reduction and breathability.
The Opti Fit adjustable closure is thin and light and offers golfers a very secure fit on their hand. In addition to all of these features, this glove comes in several vibrant colors.
This all-leather glove has a price point of around $20 and one owner of this glove commented that “the glove goes on easily, and comes off for putts nicely without any issues.”
A great budget-friendly golf glove
Getting a good golf glove with a great fit and excellent performance does not mean you have to break the bank. This glove offers an ultra-thin soft microfiber construction that gives golfers great moisture reduction, increased durability, plus amazing feeling flexibility.
The antiskid microfiber palm gives you consistent grip and the hook and loop elastic band closure means it will stay securely on your hand. You can wash these gloves by hand or they are perfectly safe to go into a washing machine.

What to look for in a golf glove
There are a couple of important factors to consider when choosing the best golf glove for you. While it can seem as if there are a dizzying array of gloves to choose from, here are a couple of the most important points to consider when choosing the right glove for you.
Which hand you wear it on
This may be one of the most confusing choices for golfers, especially those that are new to the game. Usually, golfers only wear a glove on one hand.
Even though it may seem counterintuitive, a right-handed golfer will want to wear a glove on their left hand, whereas a left-handed golfer wants to wear a glove on the right hand.
The goal of a golf glove is the fit as tight to the skin as possible while remaining comfortable and flexible. Most glove manufacturers will have a chart that outlines the sizes of their gloves including the circumference around the hand and finger length.
Do not be shy about taking your time and doing measurements of your hand and comparing that to the specs that glove manufacturers provide. You want to make sure that your glove fits all parts of your hand perfectly for the greatest performance.
Generally, gloves come with leather, a synthetic material, or a combination of both. Leather will generally have the best feel on your skin although it will tend to stretch as you use it and may not be as durable as a synthetic glove. This also makes for a great winter golf glove.
Synthetic gloves will generally last longer and are usually more affordable than their leather counterparts although they do not tend to have as good a feel and they are not as breathable as leather gloves.
A good compromise is a glove that has a leather palm but a synthetic back which will give you a cool golf glove feel that you get from leather but will be more durable and long-lasting.
