How to Pick Best Sunglasses for Golf

With golf season under way, more people are looking for a good pair of sunglasses specifically for golfing. There is practically nothing made specifically for golf, at least not from designers. Golf is a lifestyle sport, so designers feel is that they have made enough beautiful sunglasses that will work for game of golf. And I fully agree with them. However, you can get a bit practical when looking for a good pair of sunglasses to be used while playing golf. Here are a few tips:

1. Consider polarized lenses.

I am being careful saying “consider” because not everyone likes polarized lenses. Some people find them too dark and some simply annoying because they cut more from the view than just glare. But with few exceptions, I think polarized lenses is a good feature in your golfing sunglasses. Some people report that their eyes feel less strained in polarized sunglasses. Also, when you are on the sun for 4-5 hours, very dark sunglasses will only help. These would be a good choice:

Polarized Versace 4240 Polarized Bvlgari BV5028 Polarized Prada 55O

2. Comfort is everything.

Sunglasses that are worn for hours at a time must be comfortable. Last thing you want is to develop a headache because they are too tight or heavy. And it does not really matter if they are made out of plastic (acetate is used for high end sunglasses) or metal. These days some plastic sunglasses are far heavier than metal. Designers learnt to use light weight metals such as aluminium, titanium or thin steel to overcome the weight barrier in sunglasses. The best way to get sunglasses that fit right is to avoid any extreme shapes, just go for something average like rectangular or oval shape instead of oversized round, square of butterfly. Buy something like this:

Dior Homme 0165 Gucci 1027S Hugo Boss 0514S

3. Style is also important.

Golf for many is a show off game. It is a high end activity. An average game will cost you $40, plus membership fees that can range in tens of thousands. Golfing equipment is also expensive. So, don’t be cheap on your sunglasses. Other people will not just understand. Don’t get some $20 frames to go with your Lacoste outfit. And Ray-Ban will also not make a cut. Get descent sunglasses from Prada, Dior Homme, Gucci or comparable brand. You don’t need to be extreme with Cartier or Bvlgari. But spending anything around $300 should be enough to get you covered:
