What to Look For in Golf Sunglasses

Imagine your favorite golf course. Maybe you're by the ocean and a cool breeze is blowing in from the water. You’re about to start the perfect round. The sun is still high, and to the horizons, the ocean is reflecting bright light. The only thing that could take away from your game is the wrong pair of sunglasses. Before you tee off, you need lenses that will make the green easy to see, while keeping your eye strain to a minimum as you golf the day away.


Maui Jim sunglasses were made with the strength of the tropical sun in mind. If you've spent time on a beach-side golf course, you know what we're talking about. When shopping for golf sunglasses, you want to think about the tint, mirror, and color-boosting lens technology. By choosing a lens that improves clarity, you'll have the edge in bright situations—not to mention the ability to read slopes and avoid hazards. Our picks for Maui Jim golf sunglasses are Maui HT, HCL Bronze, and Maui Rose. They offer the best solution for contrast, and color enhancement. You can also count on Maui's PolarizedPlus2® lens tech to block all UV rays and 99.9% of glare. For more Maui lens info, check out our Maui Jim lens color guide.

Now you may be wondering, are polarized lenses good for golf? In the case of Maui's polarized lenses, the answer is yes. Often times, polarized lenses can create problems with depth perception and color distortion for sports. Maui's high-end lens tech doesn't have that issue and gives you the best eye protection.


One thing you'll notice about Maui Jim frames is their weight. Or rather, the lack of it. Maui Jim uses lightweight nylon in a lot of their non-metal frames, making them feel like they’re hardly there at all. The rubber used for the temple and nose pads allows for both grip and comfort during your most aggressive swings. This is especially important when you're trying to focus on a crucial putt or chip, that could be the difference in taking a few strokes off your score.
