Take a break from your eagle-eyed holiday shopping to check out these launches, drops, and releases happening in the golf space you may have missed this month. From an anniversary Nike x Tiger Woods re-released pair of kicks from 2013, to a limited edition golf ball bottle opener as wildly glam as it is pricey, here are the latest and greatest in golf apparel, equipment, and accessories for your trendy winter golf needs (and wants).

Recent Drops/Capsules

Malbon Fairway Finders Collection


As one of golf's hottest brands, you can count on a Malbon drop even during the chilly months. It has been a busy month for the California-based brand, including bi-costal expansion to Miami, where fashion and golf fanatics can congregate and shop the limited edition drops. In its last fall/winter collection of the year, Fairway Finders, Malbon took a more rugged, midwestern approach while having certain elements remain quite polished making them golf-appropriate. The Charlotte Cardigan, the standout piece of the collection for us, is the perfect example of this "farmhouse chic" stylized form. The ink-blotted golf course design, (which is oh-so-eye-catching) is a refreshing take on the golf cardigan trend that we've seen pop back up — from classic cardigans to embroidered ones, we're here for it.

Draw and Fade Winter knitwear


D&F Modern’s newest collection is timed perfectly with the shoulder season when knitwear is essential. The latest drop is now available for pre-order and features extra-fine textile materials from Nepal to keep layers warm and comfortable. The Icons Crewneck, with artwork done by Max Machado, reimagines infamous golf poses placing women at the forefront, furthering D&F Modern's mission of bringing more female-focused iconography and representation into the golf space. The other knitwear pieces feature minimal branding, with a heavier emphasis on functionality, as seen with the thoughtful choice of using wool, viscose, and recycled nylon for insulation.

Puma Men’s SLIPSTREAM G RF Spikeless Golf Shoes

If you blinked, you may have missed this team up between Puma and ambassador Rickie Fowler, whose affinity for zesty orange (thanks Oklahoma State) inspired this basketball court-meets-fairway shoe. If you didn’t get your hands on a pair of these lavender and orange kicks, here are three ulterior releases to try, including an option for the ladies.

What caught our eye on Instagram

G/FORE Bottle Opener

If you’re in the market for a collector’s edition, dimpled steel church key so stylish it resembles a luxe bottle of cologne—that’s also priced like one—then this limited release launch is for you.

FootJoy HyperFlex Carbon Men's Golf Shoes

With a focus on quality materials and attention to detail, FJ’s new limited edition “Birchwood Collection” is inspired by the delicate woods and textures of, you guessed it, birch. Each item in the limited capsule is a careful, earthy beige or snow hue, inspired by the soft—though sturdy—sights and feels of nature. These waterproof knit men’s golf shoes are made with breathable knit and stabilizing carbon fibers, with just a hint of red, like a cardinal perched on a branch.

Familiar Favorites (with a twist)

Men's: Greyson Serrano Luxe Jogger

These feather-light pants have a slightly more tailored look for a sophisticated take on joggers, a golfer’s favorite, especially in the cooler months. The stretchy waistband allows for comfort and flexibility, while the tapered front is another example of a thoughtful detail that creates an upscale look you can dress up or down.

Women's: A. PUTNAM Santosa Crew

We’ve seen some great examples of the elevated, streamlined crewneck this winter, but this silhouette is a standout. The scalloped-edge hemline adds a flair of femininity, while the artful piping allows for structure and shape, even with the boxy fit that’s great for swinging. The cream color looks classic and timeless, plus it will match everything in your wardrobe.

Trendy/Streetwear pieces we'd love to try on the golf course

Houndstooth Pattern

Originating from the Scottish Lowlands mere centuries ago, the houndstooth pattern has a rightful place in golf fashion. Similar to gingham plaid and easily mistaken for tweed, the duotone fabric (usually black and white) is arranged in an alternating pattern with light-and-dark diagonally-striped checks. It's a timeless textile pattern seen in high fashion houses like Christian Dior and Alexander McQueen but has also been utilized by our favorite golf brands for more practical functionality. The contemporary usage of houndstooth is often used as a nod to more dated fashion styles (like a flat cap) but can be seen on more modernized pieces like tracksuits and hoodies.


Fans of the “après-ski” lifestyle, meet après-golf. Just as stylish, timeless, and leisurely, though perhaps with roots slightly less alpine. In terms of fashion, the luxurious fabrics of après-ski (think cashmere, virgin wool, and faux fur) meet the practical silhouettes of the fairways: zip-ups, beanies, and turtlenecks. The impossibly cool Euro-energy is woven into these made-for-golf products, which will all look great with a pair of ski glasses, whether you’re wearing them for style of function, on or off the course.
