The best gloves at affordable prices

Bookmark

Even the very best golf gloves in 2023 are affordable to most budgets in comparison to other essential golf accessories. That said, with an average golf glove being in the region of $20/£20, and needing replacing every 10 rounds or so, playing once a week for a year will still see you part way with over $100/£100.

Golf gloves are underrated in terms of the value they add, acting as safety mechanism to ensure your grip stays secure throughout your swing, preventing slippage and a deviated ball flight. Ultimately, a worn-out grip will cost you shots, and if the rain starts to fall then you can probably wave goodbye to your score.

So if you’ve been nursing a tatty old glove for over a year, then read on as we’ve identified some stand-out models that won’t break the bank and might just persuade you to get into the habit of replacing your golf glove a bit more frequently.

How to choose an affordable golf glove

Of course, affordability will vary considerably according to individual budgets and what each person considers value for money. This shortlist has pulled out examples of great golf gloves that can be found at price points under $20/£20. Just because they are at the more affordable end of the market however, you shouldn’t compromise on the following:

Size – Studies have shown that 98% of golfers wear a glove that is too big for them. You shouldn’t be able to pinch any material on the palm or fingers. If you can cover all of the Velcro with the fastening tab, that’s another sign it’s too big. Don’t be alarmed if your brand-new glove feels a bit restrictive at first, it will loosen up within a few minutes or a few shots on the range.

Durability – A cheaper golf glove does not automatically signal better value for money. Synthetic gloves are typically longer lasting than leather gloves meaning they should retain their grip for a few more rounds a save you some money in the long run.

Feel – For those greenside chips and delicate approaches from under 100 yards, feeling at one with your wedge will help your distance and spin control. If possible, try gripping a club with your preferred choice of glove first to make sure it’s comfortable and provides you with the feel you need to stick it close!
