Protecting your score is not the only asset we strive for when playing golf, your eyes are pretty important too. Golfing in sunny conditions is to me, nirvana however blocking out harmful UV rays, is only one consideration when buying golf sunglasses. Not all sunglasses are created equal, and so picking the right shades for the right conditions will affect your ability to make better judgements.

Nike Golf X2 Pro

Featuring an innovative pro-cut lens with Nike MAX Optics Golf Tint, a patented technology that amplifies the white of the ball and enhances the contours of the green, the Golf X2 Pro delivers precise visual information at all angles of view in a deep lens cut for maximum coverage. The lightweight nylon frame is fully adjustable, with secure-wrap temples and a ventilated, adjustable nose bridge for  fog-free comfort and stability. The Golf X2 Pro’s specialized thin-temple design fits comfortably under a hat. But wait, there’s more…

May 25th
2015

The Arabella Golf Club lies on the south-western coast of South Africa, 90 kilometres from Cape Town International Airport. Located on the R44, in Kleinmond (between Cape Town and Hermanus). Beautifully set against the Bot-River Lagoon this superb 18-hole, Par 72 Championship course has consistently been ranked in the top 10 courses in South Africa.

Arabella Golf & Country Estate

Peter Matkovich, who designed the Arabella Golf course, ensured that the 18 holes encompass the Mountain backdrops, lagoon frontage and forests on the estate near Kleinmond. These provide for links, parkland and coastal aspects, while the individual fairways provide natural corridors as vantage points to savour nature’s true beauty.  But wait, there’s more…

It’s no secret that ECCO’s Hybrid shoes have been first-in-class in comfort since the model burst on the scene at the 2011 Masters thanks to Fred Couples. From that standpoint, then, there has never been a question about how your feet feel after walking 18 holes in the shoes.

The point of interest, from a performance standpoint, is how the shoes perform relative to traditional “spiked” golf shoes. Regarding that, you’re in no danger of feeling like you’re wearing a pair of sneakers with the Biom Hybrid 2 on your feet. But wait, there’s more…
