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.
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.

The subtle branding provides a stylish finish and the comfort levels are excellent.
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.
It's available in a wide range of colours and looks good on and off the course.
adidas continue to strive to make products more environmentally friendly, and this hat is made from 60% recycled materials.
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.
The textured synthetic fabric features a tropical palm tree print and a subtle logo, adding to the aesthetic appeal.
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.
