If you’re lucky enough to get in a game of golf on a nice sunny day, then you’re going to want to have a trusty pair of the best sunglasses for golf, to ensure you’re playing to the best of your ability – and protecting your eyes from the sun. Golfing sunglasses are designed to give good coverage and contrast so that you can see clearly even on the brightest of days.

For comfort and functionality, you want to look out for a pair of sunglasses that wrap around your face, these will allow for much clearer viewing without sunlight creeping in around the edges. For super clear vision, opt for polarised lenses, as they will filter out any glare so you can have full clarity on the course. 

If you wear prescription glasses, or find that some days you need a darker lens, then you may want to opt for a pair of golfing sunglasses with interchangeable lenses, such as the Bloc Titan golf sunglasses in the list below. This means you could always have prescription lenses made if needed. 

Now peruse the best golf sunglasses – they'll ensure comfort and optimum visibility during your next game.

You might not like Henrik

European Ryder Cup legend and 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson launched his own line of eyewear in 2017 and the brand has since gone from strength to strength. Henrik is known as the Iceman and so it's no surprise that is also the name of his signature line of golf sunglasses. The 'Iceman' is now in its third iteration and has become one of the most popular models of golf shades on the market.

Suitable not only for golf but for other sporting activities, the Iceman 3.0 features frames made from an ultra light, flexible polymer and an anti-scratch HD lens that will enhance colour and contrast. The oleophobic coating makes those lenses resistant to sweat, dirt, moisture and fingerprints which is pretty cool. It's available in a variety of colours and the unisex design fits both men and women. For the full low-down, read my full Henrik Stenson Iceman 3.0 review.

They feature UV protection for complete UV blockage and the thick durable lenses are scratch resistant so you can expect them to last you well. 

The non-slip tips will also ensure these glasses stay on your face no matter what your position and still won’t move even when they heat up. These are a great pair of sporting sunglasses for regular golfers.
