What are the Best Women’s Golf Sunglasses in 2018?

The 5 Best Women’s Golf Sunglasses 2018

Sunglasses are a blessing: they shield your eyes from the sun and can be a great fashion accessory. You might wear them to the beach. You might wear them while driving. But, one of the best times to wear sunglasses is while you’re golfing.

You want to choose golf sunglasses that not only fit you well, but are also comfortable and fashionable. You’ll want to choose the sunglasses with the right amount of shade, depending on the weather conditions you usually play in.

I was never into wearing hats on the golf course (they mess up my bangs). So the other option would be buying a pair of sunglasses. It isn’t much fun squinting and fighting dry eyes during a round of golf in the sun. But, I wondered, where would I start? How would I determine which sunglasses are the best for playing golf?

After some research and window shopping, I’ve come up with a list of the best pairs of women’s golf sunglasses for the 2018 season.

Oakley is one of the most famous brands for sunglasses. The Flak Draft is one of my favorites from their women’s golf sunglasses line. It’s single release trigger helps make lens changing quick and easy, and with features like integrated ventilation that fights fog buildup, this premium multi-sport sunglass is great for performance.

Sunwise | Kennington Purple

Sunwise Golf Sunglasses

Since 1996, Sunwise has been providing sunglasses for a whole host of activities from running to mountain biking, rallying and more importantly, for golf!

Their women’s golf sunglasses are designed to give you better vision when teeing off and protect your eyes even during long days on the range. They can protect your eyes from intense sunlight as well as unwanted debris flying around the course, preventing eye irritation as well as loss of focus. In turn, this will enable you to concentrate fully on your game and enjoy clear vision of the ball. The rubber nose piece is a great addition because during those hot 90 degree days, they won’t slip off your face.

Sunwise offers interchangeable models, which are light and comfortable and offer exciting vivid British designs featuring wrap to protect you from the sun. The adaptibility to change inclusive lenses allow you to not only wear them to the golf course, but in everyday life as well.

Kaenon | Driver Aviator

Kaenon Driver Women's Golf Sunglasses

Kaenon Polarized is based in Newport Beach, CA. With most of their market focused on water sports, the “polarized” part of the name comes in great use. Most of us don’t try to make golf a water sport, but we all know it’s part of the game. Whether it’s Pebble Beach or your own local golf course, the harsh sunlight beating off the water can be distracting and nearly blinding.

Though most golfers may not realize it, grass is actually rather shiny itself. Light bouncing off of grass is equally diminished with polarization, reducing the glare and sheen you often see staring down the fairway to a richer, deeper green.

Kaenon says these women’s golf sunglasses are “light weight”, “understated”, and “you’ll forget you are wearing them.”

I have a hard time rocking aviators because I have a petite face, but for those of you who adore aviators, this is for you.

The Driver is midsize and lightweight with a classic metal alloy frame. Claiming 99.9% glare reduction, the lens have Kaenon’s patented “SR-91 technology,” which is touted to combine the “superior optical quality of the finest glass with the light weight, strength and impact resistance of polycarbonate.”

If you’re gonna drop some money on gear, there’s a lot to be said for paying a little bit more on your optics.

I hope this helps you find the best brand of sunglasses. Comment below which pair of women’s golf sunglasses that you enjoy the most!
