14 Golf Sunglasses Perfect for On and Off the Green

What now feels like eons ago, I worked at a sunglasses store in college. Sure, we had the 20-somethings coming in for the latest and greatest pair of shades, but if there was one activity we sold the most glasses for, it was golf. Surprise, surprise—a sport where you spend a majority of it under the ever-so-bright sun calls for pair of sunglasses that can stand up to the task. Naturally, there was a large pool our customers could choose from, but as time went on, I realized a pair of glasses didn’t have to be classified as “sport” to check all the boxes for the perfect pair of golf sunglasses.

Which is why I’m here. Ahead, you’ll find 14 pairs guaranteed to make the next time you find yourself hitting the links a breeze. Whether you’re looking for a polarized pair, something that doesn’t slip, or scratch-resistant lenses, a whole slew of options at different price points are up for grabs. So fetch your clubs, snag up one of these, and get moving. And if you find yourself needing a little fashion inspiration, check out these pictures of your favorite celebrities playing the game. It’s worth the quick detour, I promise.
