Looking at the best golf headcovers on the market is a bit like being in a YouTube spiral. You start by clicking on a shot by Seve in the 1987 Ryder Cup, and before you know it, you’re watching Oh Oh Oh by the Golf Boys (Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Ben Crane and Hunter Mahan, to save you from having to Google it).
Why? Because the choice is immense. You can go for a smart-looking option from your favourite equipment manufacturer. You can go for a sleek option from what is essentially a fashion designer. You can go for something that shows your allegiance to your football team or even your country. And you can go for something completely wacky that looks more like a soft toy from The Generation Game than anything to do with golf. And a hundred things in between.
In short, you have loads of choices when it comes to golf headcovers. So, to make your search easier, we’ve narrowed things down by picking out a few great options from the various categories. Who knew choosing a golf headcover could be so exhausting?!
Golf headcovers: our top picks
RL’s iconic logo and signature embroidered Pony adorn this driver headcover, which has a plush lining. It looks the part, and if you’re a fan of Ralph Lauren polo shirts, this might well team up nicely with it.
An American feel, as you’d expect—but we like it.
We’re big fans of Ping gear and enjoy how this manages to simultaneously look both retro and modern at the same time.
The black-and-white colour-way looks superb, and you can guarantee your driver will be protected inside the soft, velour-padded interior. It features a high-quality embroidered Ping logo with extra padding at the top and bottom.
Titleist only really does stylish, and this leather headcover fits in just right. It features a chic, jet-black quilted design and is built with a two-panel construction.
It’s made from 100% leather and boasts the distinctive Titleist Tour patch detail on the front with opulent quilting detail.
OK, you might think this has limited appeal because it excludes the rest of the British Isles, but we reckon this might appeal to many golfers who love the Home of Golf. After all, you don’t have to cheer on John McGinn when the football is on to want this beauty.
It has a premium quilted soft inner for protection and is made with reinforced seams to prevent overstretching from repeated use and wear and tear. It’s made with 100% premium mock leather and has contrasting white Glenmuir 1891 embroidery on the top.
If you want a Scandinavian vibe for your club protection duties, look no further than this one from J Lindeberg.
The Tour-grade synthetic leather is known for its durability, and the smooth but rugged fabric microfleece lining offers market-leading wear and colour resistance no matter how many rain and sleet storms you play in. Its black material contrasts with the fashionable JL Bridge logo embroidery—and bonus points, too, for being really easy to clean.
This fun Comic Book-styled blade putter cover features action-packed classic onomatopoeia for a sense of nostalgia and levity, as well as bags of colour.
It features premium embroidery and a magnetic closure and is available for mallets, too.
Another super-colourful option to protect that all-important putter head.
Here, floral flair and bright colours pop off a dark, durable polyurethane background that’s super hardwearing. Add in the magnetic closure, navy felt lining, and the distinctive Mr PING logo embroidery, and you’ve got yourself a solid headcover.
This is a classy-looking headcover for your hybrid clubs. The leather sleeve sports the famous claret jug logo in white over a royal blue background, with two flashes of white across the lower end.
How golf used to be…
These classic knitted headcovers are perfect for modern hybrid clubs, which are essentially the size drivers used to be back in the day when knitted covers were a luxury.
This Tartan stripe headcover comes in a navy, green and light grey stripe and fully encompasses the head as well as protecting the bottom of the shaft no matter the head size or shape.
It has a knitted lining and reinforced seams to prevent overstretching from its original shape. It’s 100% acrylic, and there’s an embroidered Glenmuir 1891 logo on the front with the classic club indicator toggle.
