Since the 1930s, Ray-Ban sunglasses have been designed with performance in mind. Originally created for U.S. Air Force pilots to ban harsh sun rays, Ray-Ban sunglasses have proven that their lens technology does more than just look good. Not only will their classic styles look sharp out on the golf course, Ray-Ban lens technology will enhance your game. We'll go over which features to consider when shopping for Ray-Ban sunglasses for golf and a lineup of the best styles.
What to Look for in Ray-Ban Sunglasses for Golf
All Ray-Ban frames reflect the brand's technological DNA. Even though they are designed with different materials, they express the functionality, innovation, and durability of each collection.
On this list, you'll find frames made of acetate (a popular frame choice due to it being lightweight, hypoallergenic, and durable), nylon (another popular choice due to its durability and comfort), and steel (cut thin to be lightweight and strong). Whichever you prefer, we certainly have a frame for you.
Even though Ray-Ban is know for their G-15 lens, we recommend the higher-contrast brown B-15 lens for golf. With a brown lens color, the B-15 gives remarkable color contrast to help you see across the fairway. This lens tint even works in most lighting conditions.
You can also consider Transitions XTRActive in brown if you want these to double as your everyday eyeglasses. For SportRx lenses, the Birdie, Day & Night Contrast, and The One II are all great golf options.

Polarized lenses cut out harsh sun glare reflecting off shiny objects in your field of view, such as cars or bodies of water. While this is a good feature for driving or fishing, it's probably not something you need in your golfing sunglasses as it can sometimes affect the way you view the contours of the fairway as well as depth perception. But if you've worn polarized sunglasses on the golf course and liked them, more power to you!

A gradient lens can be handy to have as you look at the ground. Gradient tints are usually darker at the top and gradually get lighter towards the bottom of the lens, with the dye applied using a special vacuum. For golfing, we recommend the brown gradient lens to aid with contrast enhancement.
Mirror lenses are both a fashion statement and functional feature to reduce the amount of light entering the lens. If you expect a lot of sunny days, consider a mirror coating. Our top Ray-Ban pick for golf is the copper mirror, which has a brown base tint.
