 14 Awesome Fall Golf Outerwear Pieces

If you're going to play some fall golf (and to be honest, you should absolutely play some fall golf), you need to make sure you have the right gear.  That means wearing layers that will keep you warm without holding all that sweat in.  It also means having rain gear on hand for those freakish fall storms that seem to like popping up when you're having the best round of your life.  Here are 20 awesome men's outerwear pieces that are perfect for the golf course or a fall football game:


Adidas Climaheat Vest

adidas Men's Climaheat Fleece 1/4 Zip Vest

Like Derek Zoolander, this vest is just really really ridiculously good looking.  The grey heathered texture on the front is right on trend and the cut and style is perfect for a quick round of October golf or watching your kid catch butterflies on the soccer field.


Adidas Quilted Jacket

adidas Men's Climaheat Prime Quilted Full Zip Jacket

You may recognize this jacket as the one that Jason Day wore several times during the 2016 season when he was lighting up the course.  Was it Day's fierce play that made him the World's Number 1 Golfer or was it the confidence that he got from wearing the coolest jacket known to man?  Pretty sure it's the jacket.


FootJoy Hydrolite Jacket

FootJoy Men's HydroLite Rain Jacket FJ# 23823

If there is one thing that you should buy for Fall golf, let it be a great rain jacket.  This FootJoy jacket not only looks fantastic, but comes with a two-year waterproof warranty and is extremely lightweight, meaning that you'll be dry and comfortable even if you're playing through a monsoon.


FootJoy Sport Pullover

FootJoy Men's Sport Pullover

Kind of like a politician trying to win a big election, the weather in fall can be a major flip flopper.  It could be sunny and 65 degrees at 2pm and 50 degrees with a 30 mph wind by 2:30.  Having a layering piece like this awesome FootJoy Sport Pullover is essential for keeping warm on those breezy flip floppin' days.


FootJoy Golf Rain Pants

5 Must-Have Pieces of Apparel for Fall Golf

Thursday, September 10, 2015 9:13:33 AM America/North_Dakota/Center

5 Must Have Pieces of Fall Golf Apparel

As a golf company based in the upper Midwest, we’ve played more than our fair share of cool-weather golf.  Every year, come September, the temperatures start dropping and we just want to hang onto as much of the season as we can.  The good news is that the quality of cold-weather gear has improved dramatically and a dedicated golfer can easily play comfortably when it’s 50 degrees or when it’s 85 and sunny.  Here’s our short list for the apparel you need to survive fall golf:


1.  A great layering piece.  During a round of golf in the fall the temperatures can change dramatically not just from beginning to end, but from hole to hole and from sun to shade.  This means that every fall golfer needs at least one great piece that they can easily remove or add to make golf more comfortable. 


You’ll want to look for something that is relatively lightweight and easily packable.  Something that covers your arms and neck is ideal as you can usually adjust the piece by unzipping or pushing up the sleeves to make yourself more comfortable throughout the round.  Breathable, tech fabrics are also desirable and most golf brands are offering a variety of layering pieces giving you a slew of options to choose from.

Adidas Mens Pullover     Under Armour Ladies Pullover     Nike Mens Pullover

Titleist Cart Mitts2. Cold weather gloves and/or cart mitts.  Because your hands are the only connection between your body and the golf club, it’s vital to keep them warm when playing fall golf.  Even though most golfers generally only wear a glove on their sub-dominant hand, you’ll want to score yourself a pair of gloves that will keep both hands warm throughout your round.  FootJoy’s WinterSof or RainGrip gloves are great choices that will give you the grip you need without sacrificing too much feel.


You may also want to invest in a pair of cart mitts, which are like oversize mittens that can easily be slipped on and off.  For those times between holes or shots where you have to wait more than you’d like, cart mitts are the best way to keep your hands warm and dry.


Adidas Wind Jacket3. A warm, wind-resistant jacket.  If you’re set on continuing your golf season into the fall, a great jacket is an absolute necessity.  Heavy-duty golf jackets aren’t just designed to be stylish, they are designed to keep the elements out while keeping you comfortable.  Look for a jacket that is guaranteed to be wind-resistant or windproof – you won’t regret it when those cool fall winds pick up!


Golf jackets are also designed to allow the golfer to move freely while swinging, but you’ll want to make sure that you have enough room to maneuver your shoulders through your golf swing.  Before taking the plunge, consider what type of apparel you’ll be wearing underneath the jacket.  Just a polo or a polo and a layering piece?  The number of pieces you wear under your jacket will impact the fit, so make sure get the right size.


Titleist Beanies4. A warm cap or ear muffs.   Have you ever seen football players after they come off the field during a November game?  Have you seen the steam coming off their heads?  When you’re golfing in cooler weather, you need to find ways to keep all key parts of your body warm and comfortable and that most definitely includes your head.  Get yourself a cap or at the very least, some ear warmers that will keep your head nice and toasty so that you can focus on making birdies.


Nike Rain Suit5. A rain suit to keep you dry.  While you can hope for sunny skies, fall golf can be unpredictable and the last thing that you want is to be stuck on hole 12 when the rain starts to fall.  The good news is that there are some awesome rain suits out on the market that are guaranteed to keep you dry and comfortable whether you choose to pack it in and head back to the clubhouse or push on through the rain.


Golf rain gear is designed to be taken off and on while on the course, so you’ll want to make sure that it fits comfortably over your clothes.  Look for a rain suit with a waterproof guarantee and ideally, a waterproof warranty.  Most major manufacturers use top-of-the line materials in the design of their rain gear.  Just make sure you pick up your rain suit from an authorized retailer like Austad’s.  We back all of the products that we carry with a quality and performance guarantee and work directly with vendors to ensure that you get the best quality product.


To wrap it up, with the right equipment and apparel, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be able to enjoy some great golf this fall.  With the changing leaves, it’s honestly one of the most beautiful times of the year to play.  Don’t forget – Austad’s has everything you need to have fun on the course all year round!
