Golf umbrellas are available in a huge range of styles and brands. Brands include Nike, Taylormade, Callaway, Titleist and Adidas. When choosing an umbrella, you need to think about the type of material, the weather conditions you are going to be using it in and even the style and colour of umbrella you want.
Polyester is known for having bright and colourful fabric. When folded down, creases appear and these can be very difficult to get out. Polyester is a very resistant material and it is very common in golfing umbrellas. Some golf umbrellas are coated with a layer of silver and plastic. This has a very high level of UV protection and it makes it ideal for both harsh weather conditions and brighter sunny spells.
Pongee is a very high-density fabric. The colour of pongee golfing umbrellas is usually dark and matt. It feels like cloth to the touch and it is very resistant to light as well. Pongee is incredibly durable and it is ideal for serious golfers who want to make an investment that is going to last them for years to come.
Nylon is often very colourful and it feels like silk when it is in your hand. It has very little resistance and it is easily influenced by humidity. Nylon has a tendency to shrink and it is also very easy to warp if you take it out in wet and humid conditions. Nylon is more suited to golfing in the summer and provides a lot of shade without much compromise.
Transparent umbrellas have become incredibly popular over the more recent years. It is made out of PVC or POE plastic and it is available in a range of colours and designs. There is also a range of storm proof, windproof and canopy umbrellas available to those who want to expand their collection.
