Best Golf Bucket Hats 2023


We review the best golf bucket hats from Under Armour, Nike, adidas, Galvin Green and more.

Bucket hats in golf have seen a real resurgence during recent years.

English amateur Barclay Brown turned plenty of heads during an impressive performance at the 2022 Open Championship, both for his strong showing on the course and his eye-catching bucket hats. PGA Tour winner Joel Dahmen is another who favours a bucket hat over the more commonly seen baseball cap.

Joel Dahmen and Barclay Brown wear bucket hats to play golf.

Bucket hats aren’t merely a style choice. With wider brims than baseball caps, they offer greater protection from the elements; whether that’s shade from the sun or protection from rain. As the brim runs the whole way round, you also get protection on the side and back of your head that you don’t get from a golf cap.

Let’s look at some of the best bucket hats in golf.

Best Golf Bucket Hats

The Under Armour Gore-Tex Bucket Hat is perfect for golf in any conditions as it's 100% waterproof and highly breathable. The design is simple and understated, so it will go with any golf outfit.

The Taylormade Waterproof Storm Bucket Hat has a relaxed stretch fit construction and is made from 91% polyester and 9% Spandex.

The 2.5-inch brim of the hat provides great protection from the elements and the water-resistant fully seamed crown ensures you stay dry and comfortable. 
Sizes: S/M, M/L
Colours: Black / Grey
A more structured construction than some golf bucket hats creates a smart look, but this Titleist Tour Aussie Golf Bucket Hat still offers great comfort thanks to stretch material and an adjustable closure mechanism.

There's a removable chin strap with inside pocket for storage.
Colours: Grey/White, White/Black, White/Sky, Navy/White
This Callaway HD Waterproof Golf Bucket Hat is fully sealed waterproof to keep you dry in even the harshest elements.

The subtle branding provides a stylish finish and the comfort levels are excellent.
Ideal for warmer days, this Boss bucket hat features all-over perforations for enhanced breathability and a moisture-wicking sweatband. Given the perforations, it won't surprise you to hear it's not waterproof, so it's definitely one for summer more than winter.

Another bucket hat that's great for summer golf, this 100% cotton bucket hat from Bunker Mentality is a fun design with flashes of colour and a "smiley" logo on top.
Colours: Navy, Stone

Galvin Green waterproofs are consistently top of the game so it should be no surprise that this Galvin Green bucket hat will keep your head completely dry, whatever the elements.

The hat is also highly breathable, ensuring any excess heat and moisture are transferred away from your head.

A wide choice of sizes, lightweight material and elasticated sweatband provide a perfect fit and total comfort.

This smart and simple design from J.Lindeberg can easily be worn off the course as well as on it.

The fleece-lined headband and stretch construction provide a comfortable fit, while ventilation holes offer great breathability. There's even a tee holder on the side.

The hat is 100% polyester and not waterproof, so better for keeping the rain at bay in summer than keeping you dry in rainy conditions.
One of the best-looking golf bucket hats around, this Golfino Tropical Swing Bucket Hat is light and comfortable, making it perfect for looking and feeling cool on summer days.

The textured synthetic fabric features a tropical palm tree print and a subtle logo, adding to the aesthetic appeal.

Not cheap, but this cotton chino bucket hat from Ralph Lauren will look smart on or off the golf course.

Given the material, this is one to keep you cool and shaded on warm days, rather than protecting you from the elements when the heavens open.
Made from 100% organic cotton, with aerated eyelets for breathability and comfort, this Lacoste bucket hat will keep you looking and feeling cool when the sun's out.
Colours: White, Black, Navy
This FootJoy Bucket Hat offers 100% waterproof protection, making it a great year-round option. There's a comfort band on the inside and it comes in a variety of sizes, meaning you can find the perfect fit for your head.
