10 of the Best Golf Umbrellas For This Year

By: Golfshake Editor | Tue 26 Jul 2022 | Comments


They say Summer doesn't last forever and we must remember Summer doesn't guarantee dry days every day.   So what do we do when we still want our golfing fix and it decides to rain?  As they say - there's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing - or unsuitable equipment/bad preparation.

To keep us dry there is an array of technical clothing now available and that also includes umbrellas and umbrellas designed specifically for golf. Whilst we might still want to play golf regardless of the weather we all want to keep dry and protect ourselves as much as we can from the wind and the rain.

Below we have rounded up 10 of the best golf umbrellas on the market, all designed to keep you dry, protect you from the elements and provide levels of performance needed to get out of the golf course regardless of the weather conditions. The list includes a range of retailers, price points, branded options as well as products to use whilst walking and those to use if you are a golf trolley user.

Rife Tournament Edition Double

The Rife Tournament edition umbrella features a 68" double canopy with 50+ UPF protection.  Built with a heavy-duty fibreglass shaft and fitted with auto opening functionality for easy deployment this umbrella provides great value for those looking for a cheaper alternative.
