Now every major golf equipment supplier have their own take on the golfing headwear that comes into its own in the spring and summer months.

EXPLAINED: How we test golf equipment

But here is our selection of the best golf caps for 2024…

Boss Bold Curved Baseball Cap

Material: Cotton | Colours: Black; Dark Blue 402; Dark Blue 403; White

Looks like something Babe Ruth would have worn and a style that is just a timeless classic. The 100% cotton feel, combined with the six panel-stitched design, feels and looks the business. 

Ralph Lauren Fairway Ball Cap

Material: Cotton; Polyester | Colours: French Navy; Outback Green

Possibly the most iconic fashion symbol adorns this classic-looking offering from Ralph Lauren. It also incorporates a performance sweatband.

Nike Dri-FIT AreoBill Featherlight Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: White; Thunder Blue; Black

Nike’s uncanny knack of producing golf apparel that isn’t quite like anything we’ve seen before is all too evident in this golf cap. The emphasis here is definitely on staying cool. The multitude of perforations have been “strategically placed to optimise breathability in high-sweat areas”. Sounds eminently sensible. The Nike logo and rim band are also luminous.

Castore Performance Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: White; Black

Another golf cap that is a bit of throwback. With its relatively narrow styling, which exposes a lot of the neck, it evokes memories of Hagen and Bobby Jones. It is also incredibly lightweight. 

Golfino 6-panel Cap

Material: Polyester; Elastane | Colours: Black; Rich Teal; Indigo

The Italian sportswear company have produced another typically distinctive bit of sports kit. It is also relatively unusual in that the cap itself is very stretchy so you get two adjustable elements rather than just the standard back-of-the-cap adjuster strap.

Galvin Green Spike Golf Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: Black; Pink; Sharkskin

Galvin Green’s patented Ventil8 Plus moisture-wicking technology finds its ideal home in this eye-catching golf cap. Staying dry in this area of the body is really helpful on more than one level. And if pink isn’t your colour, you can also buy it in black and grey (Sharkskin).

Under Armour UA Iso-Chill Stretch Hat

Material: Nylon; Polyester; Elastane | Colours: Black + Pitch Gray; Black + Black Rose; Pitch Gray + Black; White + Pitch Gray; Academy + Pitch Gray

At least you will look a bit like Jordan Spieth because you’re never going to be able to play like him. Under Armour has thrown a lot into this golf cap in terms of keeping cool. The patented ArmourVent technology promises ‘ultimate’ breathability and it is pretty close to the mark.

You also get an Iso-Chill sweatband which is designed to disperse body heat. A fantastic piece of golfing headwear that is also relatively cost-effective. Also comes in a range of four sizes so you can actually find the perfect fit.

TaylorMade Tour Radar Cup

Material: Polyester | Colours: Navy Blue; White

TaylorMade have a lot to say at the moment and they couldn’t pass up the opportunity to shout about their new Stealth range of woods. That apart, the darkened under bill, which is designed to reduce glare, represents a very astute bit of design while the moisture-wicking headband is certainly welcome too. 

Ping Tour Classic Baseball Cap

Material: Polyester; Spandex | Colours: Black + White; White + Black

Another excellent option for less than £20 and one that is made from 13% spandex, so flexibility and comfort are never going to be an issue. Ping has also utilised the moisture-wicking fabric made by industry specialists Delta so if you don’t mind the in-your-face-branding, a really good all-round option.

Farah Reno Cap

Material: Cotton | Colours: Farah Teal; Warm Apricot; Farah Blue Grey; Black; White

Farah is new to golf for 2022 and the iconic clothing brand has gone big on golf caps with this really nice offering. The Reno is 100% cotton, so you benefit from all its natural cooling properties, plus you also get a rather natty ball marker, held in place with a magnet. 

Calvin Klein Cotton Twill Cap

Material: Cotton | Colours: Navy; White

Understated but oozing with class, this is another timeless golf cap. It is 100% cotton so you get all the benefits of a natural material, not the least the unique feel and organic cooling effects. 

Titleist Players Performance Ball Marker Cap

Material: Performance | Colours: White + Black; Black; Charcoal + Black; Navy + White; Grey + Black; Orange + White; Yellow + Black; Royal blue + White

Those clever people of Titleist just never let you down and again, they have produced a piece of golfing apparel that just about ticks every box. The stand-out element is the ball marker, which is held in place via an unobtrusive magnet. It also incorporates antimicrobial, moisture-wicking and it has been treated with 50plus UPF protection. 

Srixon Ball Marker Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: Black + White; Light Blue + Dark Blue; Fluo Pink + White; Green + White; Grey + Grey; Orange + White; Pale Pink + White; Red + Dark Navy; Royal Blue + Light Blue; White + Navy.

You have got to hand it to Srixon, when they does something… it’s not by halves. Its range of ball marker caps has 11 colour options. At less than £15 it also compares favourability with its rivals and even though it is 100% polyester, Srixon has incorporated its own moisture-wicking technology to offset the potential issue of using the plastic-based material. 

OceanTee Pacific Cap

Material: Recycled Ocean Plastic | Colours: Purple; Teal; White

The sustainability pioneer keeps raising the bar when it comes to the awareness of what we are doing to the planet and this range of golf caps, made entirely of rubbish recovered from the Pacific Ocean, is its latest innovation. Sewn into the back of the cap is a QR code which tells you exactly what part of the ocean, the rubbish to make your cap was made from. Even the packaging is 100% biodegradable. Just shows you anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Oakley Chalten Snapback Baseball Cap

Material: Acrylic; Wool | Colours: Fathom + Cool Grey; Grigio Scuro; Jet Black; New Granite Heather + Black

Certainly no problem with ventilation on this Oakley cap. The mesh panels at the back will certainly alleviate any overheating issues although, aesthetically, it is clearly not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. The snapback feature certainly assures this cap will stay in place, even when the wind gets up. 

Lyle & Scott Eagle Logo Cap

Material: Polyester; Elastane | Colours: Aegean Blue; True Black; White

Lyle & Scott certainly knows its onions when it comes to style. The iconic golden eagle emblem, embossed with a thick black stripe, looks fantastic and the understated design touches create a golf cap that will have widespread appeal. 

PXG Prolight Cap

Material: Polyester; Spandex | Colours: Black

Everything PXG does is premium-end in terms of price but if you like what they do then you will definitely like this feature-laden golf cap. It is made from the company’s Prolight 39Thirty material which it claims is 25% lighter than the normal Performance fabric. Also includes UPF 50+ protection and moisture-wicking.


Callaway Tour Authentic Performance Pro Cap

Material: Nanotech performance | Colours: Black + White; Navy + White; White + Black

Callaway say this is a lightweight cap and they are certainly not lying. This stain-repelling performance golf cap incorporates a cooling sweatband and 30+ UV protection so your colours will stay vibrant.

FootJoy Dryjoys Baseball Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: Black

A cap that keeps your head dry… FootJoy’s knack for creating golf products with an extra edge is evident here. It makes perfect sense to make it 100% waterproof. Looks-wise the curved peak looks great and is certain to be another huge success for the footwear specialists.

Adidas 3-Stripe Tour Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: Black

People playing on the opposite end of the course will know you are wearing an adidas cap but some logos just transcend their own sport and you can’t begrudge adidas blowing its own trumpet in this way. The cap is also as good as you expect and well done to them for making it from 100 recycled polyester.

Puma 2022 P110 Cap

Material: Polyester; Rayon | Colours: Black; White; High Rise

Pretty understated by Puma’s standards but still ‘funky’ enough for Puma die-hards. With Puma apparel, you also get plenty of value for money and plenty of helpful features. The snapback design works well to hold the cap in place and sweatband plus Puma’s DryCell ‘cooling’ innovation certainly compares well with any other ventilation system.

Cobra Tour Snake 110 Snapback Baseball Cap

Material: Polyester, Nylon, Elastane | Colours: Black; High Rise; Navy Blazer; White

Cobra is offering ‘110% comfort’ but parking that bit of marketing nonsense, this is actually an incredibly comfortable cap. It feels substantial yet remains lightweight and gives you all the moisture-wicking and ‘perfect fit’ help you could wish for.

Oscar Jacobson Maddox Golf Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: Black; Aqua, Navy + Royal; Teal; Orange Rust + Black; Grey + Pewter

A typically-smart piece of golf gear from OJ and the really eye-catching element comes at the back with hundreds of laser-cut tiny holes ensuring that breathability is never going to be a problem. The stitched Oscar Jacobson logo on the front just adds that touch of class. 

Travis Mathew Flamingo Go Baseball Cap

Material: Cotton; Polyester; PU Blend | Colours: Heather Quiet Shade

Travis Mathew certainly has a style all of its own and this offering is very much a hat golf cap you’ll either love or hate. If you like the heavily textured style then it is a great option. It feels as sturdy as it looks and the cotton/polyester blend gives you the best of both worlds in terms of durability and comfort. 

J.Lindeberg Caden Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: Black; Navy; White

All the caps on this list are designed to be highly playable as well as look good but some are just that little bit better from a practical perspective and this golf cap from J.Lindeberg is certainly in that category.

Original Penguin Perforated Hats

Material: Polyester | Colours: Blue Tattoo; Bittersweet; Black Iris; Bright White; Caviar

2022 looks set to be a very good year for the Original Penguin team. The rise to greater prominence of brand ambassador Cameron Smith has propelled the relative minnow into a much bigger spotlight. Looks-wise the bands of perforations create a modern style which also helps to keep the head cool.

Kjus Laser Space Baseball Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: Steel Grey; Atlanta Blue; Alloy

Sounds a tad futuristic but in reality, it is a very tidy golf cap with a lot going for it. Kjus tend to make very aesthetically-pleasing golf apparel and this cap is no exception. Has timeless appeal and the elastic sweatband inside is a neat feature. 

Ellesse Fendal Tech Cap

Material: Polyester | Colours: Black + Red + White; White + Navy

Unmistakeably Ellesse and one that is as tough as old boots. The durable ripstop fabric gives this golf cap a touch of the indestructible.

Greg Normal Shark Logo Cap

Material: Cotton | Colours: Black; Khaki; Navy; White

Another 100% cotton golf cap that will mould to your head nicely and absorb plenty of moisture without the help off ‘add-ons’. Described as a ‘relaxed fit’ which really means it will fill all shapes and sizes.

Wilson Staff Pro Tour Baseball Cap

Material: Polyester; Elastane | Colours: Red + White; White + Red

Wilson always offers great value for money and this golf cap is definitely no exception. It might be a bit brand-heavy for some but if you’re not bothered about giving Wilson free advertising, the cap fits great. It is stretchy enough and the company’s own SnapX Technology has no peers in terms of giving you a custom-fit standard piece of headgear.
