Golfing Sunglasses

Golf sunglasses with tinted lenses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays that can lead to serious eye damage. Wrap-around frames with polarized lenses are essential to conquer the holes on the field. While clubs are the most important golfing equipment, sunglasses come right behind. A reliable pair of specs with the correct lens color will help you play at your best.

The lenses

Our active eyewear specialists know exactly what tint pairs perfectly with this particular sport. The lenses eliminate glare for the best vision and performance. For golf, the best lenses will have polarization and anti-reflective coatings together.

Yellow lenses heighten the polarity of colors on the golf course under low light and overcast conditions. They filter blue light for a sharper focus and are generally used for most outdoors and indoors sports due to that, making them a great choice for golfing with amazing visual performance and clarity.

Brown and green tints heighten depth perception and contrast. The former is especially effective against green grass and blue sky (easier to follow the ball), while the latter does a similar job with minimum color balance distortion.

Grey tones are considered neutral, as they don't distort any colors. A grey tint and photochromic lenses, which darken automatically in sunlight and fade back indoors, are also excellent choices.

The option of choosing interchangeable lenses is always available, helpful for different lighting conditions outdoors and enhancing your ability to perform well.

All lenses are UV400 rated for the best UV protection.


When picking out a frame, consider that the sunglasses should fit snugly, so they don't move when the golfer swings their club. Select frames with head straps and/or non-slip temple pads. Our frame materials consist of polycarbonate and nylon, which are lightweight, shatter-resistant, and flexible, providing style, comfort, and peace of mind to help golfers perform to their full potential.

Prescription Vs Non-prescription

If you happen to require vision correction, whether it be myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism then you’re in the right place. Why not purchase sunglasses that help block UV rays and assist with your vision. You can bring this great accessory to the field and leave them on when you’re off the field too.

Digital HD (High Definition) designed lenses are ideal when accuracy really counts. They provide low distortion around the periphery of the lens to ensure accuracy of the shot, as well as clear vision all around.

A special note regarding Progressive lenses; these should not be used during golf since it can be difficult to correctly judge the distance of the ball and hole, especially when teeing off and also while putting, likely resulting in inaccurate shots.
