Nike Dri-FIT Solar Golf Sleeves

Deirdre is modeling the solar golf sleeves on-air and the golf sleeves slide up just past the elbow and are made with Dri-FIT UV fabric which wicks away sweat and provides protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Think Feet

Why wear a traditional golf shoe when you can keep your feet cool in a golf sandal?
Today’s golf sandals include spikes so your feet don’t slip and will stay cool on the course. Many manufacturers make sandals for the golf course, including FootJoy, Bite, Oregon Mudders, Sandbaggers and more!

Frog Toggs Chilly Pad

The Chilly Pad towel is a great way to cool down when it is hot outside. It is made from a hyper-evaporative material that holds water while remaining dry to the touch. It stays cool and moist for five hours. Wear it around your neck and it will keep your body temperature down.

Sun Protection Clothing

More and more manufacturers are producing clothing with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating. UPF is the rating system used for apparel and ratings range from 15 (good) to 50+ (excellent). The UPF measures the fabric’s ability to protect against both UVA and UVB light.

For instant heat relief, look no further than the hat you place upon your head! The Aussie Chiller hat can be soaked in cold water and then worn during your golf round. The perforated fabric allows airflow, but blocks the sun and the hat is super soft- it feels chamois-like. Click HERE to order online at
