J. Lindeberg makes luxurious, modern designs that look, perform, and feel amazing for players.

1. J Lindeberg - Tour Tech Print Short Sleeve Polo Shirt (Most Luxurious Pick, Elegant Designs, Modern Look)
Color Offerings: Nautical Blue bridge monogram, Classic Green Bridge Monogram, Black JL Monogram Check, White Bridge Monogram, Bridge Swirl Red
Having a season-bending print and performance fabrics used in construction, it’s no surprise the Tour Tech Printed Polo is a best seller from J. Lindeberg.
J. Lindeberg is a Swedish clothing company founded in 1997, and their range of products includes golf and ski clothing, polo shirts, training clothes, jackets, suits, and shirts, making them a more “luxury based” brand in golf clothing.
The Tour Tech polo shirt has moisture wicking properties, four-way stretch fabric, and is extra soft to the touch. The ribbed collar keeps its fit, and the 3 button closure around the neckline runs well deeper than the majority of golf polos these days, allowing for a more old-school fit and showing off a bit more chest for players electing to drop one of the lower buttons.
The sleeves run a little tighter, and overall the fit is slightly more “form fitting” than most golf shirt brands.
J. Lindeberg endorses one of the best young talents in the game of golf and Norway’s most victorious player, Viktor Hovland, shown in the photo above, and arguably the most popular name in women’s golf, Nelly Korda.
2. RLX Golf - Classic Fit Performance Polo Shirt (Classic Look, Stylish)
Color Offerings: French Navy, Scottsdale Blue, Austin Blue (Pictured Above), Cargo Green, RL 2000 Red, Pink Sand, Polo Black, Pure White
“Ralph Lauren” is a name synonymous with the polo shirt, synonymous with “Polo,” anything actually.
As someone drawn to the idea of creating a more beautifully dressed world, Ralph Lauren is quoted saying about the polo shirt, “It was never about a shirt, but a way of living.”
This dedication to creating distinguished and classical looks is actualized in the RLX Golf Classic Fit Performance Polo, but with an even more modern twist.
To demonstrate their promise to use less virgin plastic, every RLX Classic Performance Polo is made using fully recycled materials (a theme you’ll notice on this list). RLX uses yarn created from recycled water bottles to make their quick drying, extremely breathable polyester blend.
Wearers can feel cool and confident in any weather thanks to the RLX Classic Performance Polos’ moisture wicking technology.
This lightweight Polo shirt features Ralph Lauren’s “roomiest silhouette,” so buyers might want to purchase a size smaller than usual if they are on the trimmer side or plan on tucking their shirt for every wear.
3. G/FORE - Sketch Tech Pique Slim Fit Polo Shirt (Athletic/Slim Look & Fit)
Color Offerings: Colony Blue, Blush, Ultramarine (Shown Above)
The Sketch Tech Pique Polo from G/FORE is edgy and fashion forward polo that can perform at the same time.
G/FORE is a golf apparel company that has taken the golf gear market by storm since its acquisition by Peter Millar in 2018.
While many people know their company as more golf shoe-based, G/FORE has transitioned into more of an apparel brand for the golf world and offers products in nearly every category of golf fashion.
The Sketch Tech Pique Polo features sketched skulls and G/FORE logos printed everywhere (only distinguishable from very close) and is made from G/FORE’s breathable tech pique fabric, perfect for hot weather.
This polo shirt features 4 buttons, more than standard, and has a very unique silicone G/FORE logo on the back that is certainly eye-catching.
The only flaw we can find is that this shirt runs a little larger than “standard fit,” but G/FORE offers free exchanges and returns to every customer and includes a size guide on their site you can check out here!
4. Adidas - Long Sleeve Polo Shirt (UV Protected, Suitable For Off Course Looks)
Color Offerings: grey (pictured above), White, Navy, Black
With cold temperatures quickly approaching a lot of the golfing world, we thought it would only be right to include one or two long sleeve polos on our list of the best golf shirts for men in 2023.
Users can play with confidence in their Adidas Long Sleeve Polo Shirt, knowing it has built-in UV coverage and features moisture absorbing “AEROREADY” technology in its fabric that is constantly working to keep players dry.
Adidas say they updated the silhouette of their long sleeve polos and cuffed the sleeves to give their shirts on and off course style.
Like our second pick from Ralph Lauren, the Adidas Long Sleeve polo is made with 100 percent recycled materials. (Adidas’s own PRIMEGREEN material)
5. Peter Millar - Drum Performance Jersey Polo Shirt (UV Protected, All Day Comfort)
Color Offerings: Black, Bordeaux, Balsam (Pictured Above), navy, garden violet, raspberry sorbet, blue poppy, coral crush, sport navy, white/sport navy, cottage blue/navy, cottage blue/coral crush, white/iceberg blue
It couldn’t be a list of the best golf shirts without a feature from Peter Millar, and they came to impress with their Drum Performance Jersey Polo.
Peter Millar’s Drum Performance Polos are designed to provide all day comfort wherever your activities may take you.
This shirt features antimicrobial jersey fabric that delivers moisture wicking, 50+ UPF sun protection, and is very easy to maintain for a long lifespan.
Four-way stretch provides the optimal ability to golfers on and off the golf course and requires no ironing to stay looking sharp.
The design team at Peter Millar went through dozens of collar designs before finding the perfect one that never wrinkles, which features on their Drum Performance Polos.
6. FootJoy - 2022 Presidents Cup U.S. Foulard Print Polo Shirt (Athletic Look & Price Drop)
Color Offerings: Navy (Pictured Above), White, “Beach Print”, multi stripe
If you’re from America and would like to show some pride in the 2022 United States Presidents Cup team, this is the perfect polo for you.
It’s our understanding that FootJoy created far too many of these polo shirts, and that’s why we’re seeing a massive price drop in our affiliate stores.
FootJoy has always made highly comfortable golf shirts for men, but their prices are usually astronomical, and they ALWAYS fit very large.
The opposite is valid with the 2022 Presidents Cup polo shirt.
This polo from FootJoy features a much more trim fit than their standard boxy polos and features a multitude of different color and pattern variations if you don’t want to wear the stars and stripes.
Our favorite feature has to be the accented color on the inside of the shirt and underneath the collar itself. Those little distinctions make this shirt stand out in any commemorative photo on the first tee!
7. Travis Mathew - Burn Card Polo Shirt (Off & On Course Fashion)
Color Offerings: White
Travis Mathew expects you will add their Burn Card golf polo to your weekly rotation.
The Burn Card polo features a chest stripe that has a textured and geo print that’s noticeable to onlookers.
Travis Mathew takes their shirt collars seriously like some of our other featured apparel brands and has designed a “Built Up” collar to stay in the perfect shape for round after round.
Besides a small printed logo on the chest and around the neckline, this polo probably does the best job on our list of giving “off course” vibes.
The Burn Card can easily transition from the golf course to a night on the town.
8. Nike - Dri-FIT Victory Men's Golf Polo Shirt (100% Recycled, Dri-FIT Tech.)
Color Offerings: Black, Grey, White (shown above), navy
Crafted from breathable, sweat wicking fabric, the Nike Dri-FIT Victory Polo, like a few of the others on our list, is made with 100% recycled polyester fibers.
Nike Dri-FIT technology has always been famed for its ability to keep athletes cool. This technology is built into this golf polo and works to move sweat away from your skin for quicker evaporation, helping you stay dry and comfortable in any conditions.
Shoulder seams are rolled forward so you can fully power through your swing. The collar is ribbed to help prevent curling.
Interestingly, Nike has chosen a 2 button placket design that looks just as good fully buttoned as it does fully unbuttoned and a length that looks just as good tucked as untucked.
9. PUMA - Caddie Stripe Polo Shirt (Non-Bright, Stylish Look From PUMA)
Color Offerings: Grey, Black, red, green, purple (shown above)
PUMA has removed themselves from the idea that they only make loud clothes for a young Rickie Fowler and high-strung Bryson DeChambeau and now creates some classic, sophisticated golf apparel that doesn’t break the bank.
Featuring just the right amount of subtle pattern, style, and performance needed for 18 holes plus some, the PUMA Caddie Stripe golf polo is precisely what all players need to add to their growing golf shirt collections.
The Caddie Stripe polo features soft, comfortable, super stretchy fabric that stays performance ready straight out of the dryer (no ironing required).
10. PGA Tour Apparel - "PGA TOUR" Airflux Solid Performance Polo Shirt (Most Budget Friendly Pick, UV Protection)
Color Offerings: Lime, pink, purple, yellow, navy, white, blue, grey, green, black, coral, red, teal, royal, and light blue (shown above)
As our final pick of the best golf polos of the 2023 list, we are huge fans of the PGA Tour Apparel Airflux Solid Performance Polo.
With by far the most color offerings of any selection on our list, wearers will love this addition to their shirt collection for a literal fraction of the price of many competitors.
The Airflux Solid Performance Polo features moisture management technology and UPF 15 sun blocking fabrics that protect your skin from harmful rays.
The collar is ribbed, large, and stays in place. The button design on these polos is large and almost looks like it takes some inspiration in fashion sense from our top pick, the J. Lindeberg Tour Tech Polo.
This polo is exceptionally lightweight, likely the most lightweight design on our entire list, so it might only be suitable for warm weather golf unless you plan on having it as a base layer.
Our Favorite Features To Look For Before We Buy Golf Shirts
As you likely noticed, many of the best golf polos on our list feature the same material in their construction processes (usually polyester blended fabrics). This polyester and sometimes spandex blend are popular because of the stretch properties achievable using these materials.
If you play in hot weather often, choosing a material blend that ensures it can wick moisture should be a top priority, so read the descriptions and tags before you buy!
Polos like the Adidas Long Sleeve, the Peter Millar Drum Jersey, and the PGA Tour Apparel Solid Performance shirt all feature built in UV protection.
If you’re likely to burn, choosing one of these three options with back up sun protection implemented into their designs should be a factor you pay attention to.
Length - Fit:
A problem for smaller framed or thinner golfers out there is often polo shirts swallowing your figure whole and more closely resemble a nightgown than a golf shirt.
If you’re on the slimmer side and want an athletic-fitting golf polo, you should look at the J. Lindeberg Tour Tech Print, the G/FORE Sketch Tech Pique, the Peter Millar Drum Jersey, or the Travis Mathew Burn Card polo.
Each of these shirts listed above features a more tapered and slim fit.
