Don't feel guilty about letting your kids get soaked on the course anymore

A few spring showers aren't about to hold back pent-up juniors eager to get the golf season started. Galway Bay specializes in rainwear (I see PGA Tour officials and caddies wearing them all the time, which says something about the quality of the product), and offers Teflon-coated, seam-sealed waterproof items for kids as well.

The all-weather rain pants ($99) come with adjustable legs that can be lengthened so growing boys and girls get more than a few months out of them. The pants come in 26-, 28- and 30-inch waists and are lined from the knee down for warmth.


Galway Bay's rain shorts ($89) can be worn alone, but the extra half-inch material at the leg lets children wear them over regular shorts so they're covered. The shorts' four-pocket design has four inches of stretch in the waist to help hold them up.

The company also has a small size in its short-sleeve rain jacket ($149) and a mesh-lined bucket hat ($39) that Johnny or Janie can slip in a golf bag if needed.
