Golf umbrellas are available in a variety of colors and designs, and they can be purchased at most golf stores.

Lightweight trekking umbrella reflects the sunWalking across deserts in the blazing sun or through summer rain showers shouldn’t be a misery. The Silver Shadow Umbrella provides a large silver surface that reflects sunlight, allowing you to walk cooler and deflect harmful rays.
Its coating sheds water easily, eliminating the need to wear sweaty rain gear. This updated Silver Shadow most resembles the original design. Its rigid, fiberglass shaft insures that it won’t unexpectedly collapse, and its simple construction ensures years of trouble-free use.
The simple design with minimal parts keeps it light and durable. There’s simply fewer things to break or malfunction. Wherever you travel, a Silver Shadow should be part of your kit!.
Pros: After waking up in my tent to steady rain, it was SO nice to stay dry while I popped out to “use the bathroom” and go back inside without a wet rain jacket. Also, super nice when cooking to keep fingers dry.
This umbrella also kept me cool when the sun came out – my hiking partners had sweat rolling down their faces and I was still cool and dry. I didn’t have to stop as often to put on or take off clothes to regulate temperature – I had a lot more leeway to stay comfortable with the umbrella.
Cons: I won’t use in strong winds as it probably would not hold up. The outermost ribs/spokes need some guidance as you open the umbrella so they curve down and don’t stick up. Those same ribs/spokes also need to be folded back up manually when closing the umbrella.
Essentially, the umbrella is not a completely automatic quick open-close like normal umbrellas. Getting the umbrella wrapped back up to fit in the bag also requires some manual folding of the fabric so the strap can reach all the way around to secure.
Very lightweight and reasonably durable. Love the fiberglass shaft and ribs as a non electrical conductor during thunderstorms with lightening. However, for long treks, the shaft is way too short and it is extremely uncomfortable to attempt to carry/hold – you end up holding your arm at an uncomfortable angle, which is very tiresome.
Look at the company provided photos and you’ll see what I’m describing The length of the shaft also reduces your field of view and airflow while trekking (see company’s photos). Hence, I modified and lengthened the shaft to make it more usable and versatile.
I removed the EVA foam handle and I created my own mounting system to mount onto my backpack’s shoulder strap and also at my hipbelt. lengthening the shaft provides a better field of view and increases the airflow (reducing the temperature underneath).
My hands are also free to use trekking poles. I also quickly noticed something – I perspire far less and I need about 33% less water for hydration. This means the 10+ ounces (umbrella with modified shaft) equals a savings of pounds that I used to carry in water.
I am also less tired after 10+ mile treks in 100 degree temperatures The lengthened umbrella is also easily adjustable to block the sun, when the sun is at lower angles, or coming from the sides, back, and/or front.
I have tested the modified umbrella for 100’s of miles in the sun, rain, and 15-20 mph winds. When it is too windy, I simply fold up the umbrella and continue walking. no need to store it as it is already secured to your backpack.
The lengthened umbrella also works great to provide shade when I take a break or stop to eat – you’re always in the shade. The umbrella is also excellent in the rain. It keeps me dry and I don’t need to wear a rain jacket, which makes me perspire way too much when carrying heavy loads.
I’ve been stopped numerous times while on the trails and asked how I modified the umbrella. I’ve had many with the original design ask for a list of my design modification materials, so they could modify their umbrellas.
One suggestion would be to increase the diameter of the umbrella for better coverage from the sun and rain. I believe the couple of ounces would be worth the additional coverage.
During my PCT – Section hike 2012 I already enjoyed the benefits of a hiking umbrella. For comfort nothing comes close in the heat. No sweating under a hat, much better sun protection and the tiny bit of weight is easily saved by the reduced amount of water one needs to carry.
Also a very nice accessory for the midday siesta. Wouldn’t want to go without one ever again. In 2012 I had the original „chrome dome“, this one from Six Moon Designs is at least as well built and even lighter.
Even if you take the regular (non-carbon-version), this is an excellent choice. Added Benefit: You can hike in most rainy conditions without a rain jacket, thus avoiding wetness due to condensation. Obviously in strong winds you would have to revert to your jacket.
TaylorMade 60 inch Single Canopy Tour golf umbrella offers you excellent protection against the wind and the rain. Stay dry and battle through the elements with TaylorMade’s Single Canopy Umbrella. Designed specifically for golfers, the 100% nylon canopy and ergonomic sport-grip handle make for a great accessory to keep you playing even in the wettest conditions.
Excellent Construction, Extremely Sturdy. This umbrella is a MUST. The extra 4 inches isn’t too much to overlook this umbrella. I purchased both this and the 60” model and find myself favoring this one due to the quality and sturdiness.
Worked great on my push cart in some events so far this season. Again, quality of this beast is easily noted. Great product, TM. Bravo.
Thought I would pay more for a “better quality” product since it was a gift, but I was sorely mistaken. One of the pieces of the umbrella frame busted on my partner in less than a year and dangled dangerously at eye level when using.
Then when I opened it today to take a look, another piece of the framed busted. The frame pieces are secured by flimsy plastic and cannot be repaired.
Clicgear Umbrella The Clicgear Umbrella is our standard golf umbrella to fit perfectly with your Clicgear Cart. The Clicgear Umbrella with a 68″ over-sized double canopy, the Clicgear Umbrella is designed to give maximum protection.
Custom molded handle designed to fit perfectly in all Clicgear umbrella holder systems. The Umbrella is made with waterproof and clear UV coated nylon. It’s perfect for the sun or rain and fits all models of Clicgear Cart, as well as most other brands of golf push carts with umbrella holders.
I ordered a new umbrella for my ClicGear cart. I received a damaged product. The fiberglass shaft is worn and shredded near the handle. I can’t tell if it’s old damaged stock that sat on the shelf for a while, or if it was damaged during shipping.
I’ll be asking for a refund/replacement next. Hope Puetz has decent customer service! (I’ll update if/when I can).
Excellent golf umbrella. Looks to me like it is made by. Gustbusters. It is identical to my old Gustbusters and I have always found these to be the strongest umbrellas. Fits the Clicgear cart well as one would expect.
Highly recommend. Very good price, service and delivery.
Absolute great quality umbrella. Outperformed a premium Blunt G2 Golf umbrella which is almost triple the price. Easy open/fold operation and much lighter weight than expected. Large canopy to comfortably shelter 2 persons and fits well into ClicGear buggy umbrella holder.

Convenient flex spring top. Patented deep canopy and protective inner layer. Telescoping shaft and matching sleeve. Durable nylon construction. Import.
Just started riding in a cart. The first day after receiving the Drizzle Stik, I needed to use it. I watched many people try to cover the heads of their clubs with the towel on their bag. Doesn’t work.
I only gave this item a 4 star rating because it hasn’t been tested in the rain but, I have no reason to believe that it won’t do it’s job. The item arrived in a timely fashion, well packaged, and the quality appears to be on par with it’s price and function.
The Bag Boy UV umbrella offers protection from both rain and sun. The umbrella features a 62 inch diameter for maximum coverage, push button auto open and a double vented canopy to prevent inversion in high winds.
Well, it was very beautiful while I had it in my possession. We actually gave it as a gift to a homeless elderly man so he can use it to protect him from the current hot sun. He absolutely loves it too.
I will be buying another one for me in the near future. Thank you. Quality. very well constructed. Shipment. Well packed and speedy shipment Color. Very patriotic which I love. Size. The ultimate coverage size umbrella.

It allows wind to pass through the top without fear of inversion during sudden gusts. This umbrella is built to last through heavy rain and wind, finished with an attractive metal end cap that provides a non-slip grip option during wet conditions.
The fabric used to construct the umbrella is of the highest quality, and it is 100% waterproof, allowing you to continue your round when the rain comes down.
It does the job you expect it to do. The canopy size is large enough to cover two people. It Can with stand a big gust of wind. Lite weight and built very strong. The color and design is very good. Quality is worh the price.
Well packaged and no damage when it was delivered.
In grey with large, black Callaway branding, this fine, sturdy Callaway Shield 64 inch golf umbrella is ideal for travelling. Double canopy keeps the umbrella from collapsing in high winds. Comfortable ‘Non-slip’ handle.
Maximum Sun Protection. Silver coated umbrella for women with maximum sun protective rating of UPF50+. Our Compact Umbrella UPF 50+ for women offers excellent sun protection, is packable and easy to open and close.
Umbrella is good overall but could use some design improvement. Lack of a double canopy and the metal (not lighter polycarbonate or other lightweight durable material) framing and springs along each rib means this won’t hold up in strong winds although it’s relatively heavy.
The opening and closing mechanism is a single button but you do need two hands to exert a few pounds of force, especially to close. There is a horrible and strong off-gas smell (hopefully it is not toxic!) when you first open the umbrella so you need to air this out 1-2 days at first – best to do outside.
Also I would have liked the description to have clearly stated this is manufactured in China. Customer service is excellent as they emailed me when my choice was out of stock – though I’m not sure why website allowed the order.
In sum this seems to be solid UV blocking umbrella but I’m still searching for the ideal one as this isn’t it.
I don’t know why I didn’t think about it earlier! This is a life saver! You can see your phone screen, you are protected from the sun, no burning, no need to exhaust your eyes to see anything. The umbrella is sturdy enough to survive UK winds on the summer day, it has beautiful pattern and useful storage case.
I had already many compliments! I have the one with the clouds pattern and it always makes me smile just gives you some of the blue skies you missing love the Solbari brand! I used to be very upset with my sensitive skin but since I discovered their wonderful styles of clothing hats accessories I feel stylish and put together without missing on life during summer!.
This sunbrella saved me from really hot sun and kept me cool despite 30&43 degrees C heat. I can’t praise highly enough. The only quibble was that the wrist strap came off, but Solbari have immediately offered to replace the umbrella, so I can’t fault their customer service.
Everyone should have one of these: the only time it isn’t useful is if it’s windy — when my Solbari sun hat came into its own. But the rest of the time I just loved having the shade of the sunbrella without anything on my head.
Protect yourself rainy conditions with the clean styled TaylorMade umbrella. This umbrella has a large 60″ sized nylon canopy to help you stay dry in the rain, and also has a sturdy fibreglass shaft, and an ergonomic rubber coated sports-grip handle.
The umbrella has a manual opening, and bold TaylorMade branding for added Tour style.
Mens Under Armour Golf UA Double Canopy Umbrella. A large double canopy 68″, dual action opening, wind resitant umbrella. Features UA Storm1 technology that repels water to protect you and your equipment from the elements, textured rubber handle that provides a comfortable grip and finished with dual Under Armour brandmark.
I purchased two of these umbrellas after my golf umbrella (different brand) broke. There’s been a lot of rain and consequently have had many opportunities to use the umbrellas. My first impressions are: the handle is soft and helps to prevent hand fatigue.
It’s pleasant to hold. The umbrella is easy to open (manual, no automatic opening or buttons) and feels sturdy. The umbrella has withstood strong winds and kept me dry under heavy rain. It could easily fit a child or another person under the umbrella and still stay dry.
The umbrella is aesthetically pleasing (love the fluorescent green against black!). Highly recommended!.
I love the ‘electric green’ accent colours on this, as well as how sturdy and confident it feels (holds up well in strong winds and rain). It kept me completely dry, and the constructions feels top-notch.
It’s nice and compact when folded down, and would fit comfortably in the boot of a small car. The only negative I have about this is that it is a manual opening mechanism. There’s no spring, so if you have something else in your hand you have to put it down or tuck it under your arm to free both hands to open the umbrella.
Most golf umbrellas are spring-loaded and open as soon as you push the button in, so was a bit disappointed by that. However a fantastic umbrella overall.
The Sun Tek 68″ Windcheater Umbrella protects you from harmful UV rays, while simultaneously keeping you cool in the sun and dry in the rain! This vented umbrella features a silver coated double canopy, and the Vortec Venting System prevents the umbrella from inverting in strong winds.
The 68” SunTek Windcheater Umbrella is large enough to keep you and your gear dry in the rain. The fiberglass shaft and ribs provide extra safety in the event of a lightning storm. The oversized, ergonomic, rubber handle is comfortable for both right and left hand users.
The silver outer covering of this umbrella is somewhat reflective, so it may bother people near you on a sunny day. I took it out on a windy day thinking it would reduce the amount of pulling force when the wind grabbed it, but I am not quite convinced there is any difference from a non double canopy umbrella.
It may stop the umbrella from inverting completely, but this double canopy umbrella still requires you to hang on tight or it will get away from you. I primarily bought it to walk the dog on rainy days, so more testing to come.
Still a good quality feel to this umbrella that adds the ability to reflect UV rays on sunny days.
This is the second Sun Tek UV double canopy umbrella that I had purchased. The first one lasted for 6 years and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The new one is not as well made as the first one I purchased nor is the canopy as sturdy.
It does not have an automatic push button to raise the canopy and it does not slide easily up the shaft.
When I bought this, I did not want to give a Bad review, but. The Seller, is GREAT! The umbrella. have been using a couple weeks now. I finally had to admit that I have turned Ten shades darker, and am Always suffering from Sunburn! It Looks great! It Works great! It is Made great! It is Huge! It gives a lot of Shade! But, it is just a Really Bad Umbrella, and does Nothing to block those Damaging Rays! My other Umbrellas always kept me Cool under the hot sun, not this one! I am always Burning Up! It is as if this just gives you your own, personal, traveling Shade, nothing else! I really need to Trash it, and buy a REAL Sunblock Umbrella! The damage it has Already Done, is irreversible! It will take a couple of Years to undo the damage that has been done to my skin, especially, my face!.
Stay dry on the course with this totes SunGuard Auto Open Golf-size Umbrella with NeverWet. Totes has solved that problem with our exclusive NeverWet coating. With NeverWet invisible coating, rain rolls right off and the umbrella stays 4 times drier no dripping mess! You’ll be cooler in the sun and always prepared for a surprise popup shower with SunGuard technology.
SunGuard provides UPF 50+ protection that blocks 98 percent of harmful UV rays and keeps you up to 30 degrees cooler compared to standing in direct sunlight. Boasting a 55-inch canopy with sporty design choices, this umbrella is large enough to protect two people from the elements.
Constructed with an ergonomic handle for easy handling and a secure grip. Auto opens with the touch of a button keeping one hand free when you’re on the go.
This is the second umbrella I purchased from Totes. The first one the metal pole bent from being very windy as well as one of the metal pieces broke inside the canopy which renders it useless if you can’t close it.
The second one the metal rod bent a bit but can close it with force. Sometimes the umbrella canopy will flip over but you can turn it right over and it’s fine. Hope they will start making the metal rods more sturdy and a bit easier to slide down after auto close to close fully as it does require some force.
The size is good large enough to not get wet unless it’s very windy and downpour that the wind pushes it to your legs. The first and second had the same issue in that the elastic string that you can use to hold the umbrella snapped.
It looked like it rubbed against the inside too much. I replaced it with a shoestring.
Please pay with STRIPE. Our prefered payment provider. Unflippable, Unflappable, Unleakable. World’s finest wind-proof umbrella. Tested at the college of Areonautic in Queens NY, will not invert in winds of 55 mph.
GustBuster has been featured on CNN, GoodDay NY, Regis and Kathy Lee, Talk soup and many more televison and radio shows. Patented technology allows the wind to pass thru the umbrella, while you stay dry.
The GustBuster has so far lived up to my expectations in the wind! Whilst playing partner’s umbrellas showed signs of struggling with the gusts, this one stayed solid. Only ‘criticism’ is the 58″ diameter means you have to be well-centred under it to not have water drip down your back when it rains.
But as I bought it more for the sun block & wind resistance features, that’s not a deal breaker.
Nice umbrella. Very large coverage, & appears well made. The wind venting seems to work well. A bit on the heavy side, but I use it in my Clicgear umbrella holder which it fits well in so that is not an issue for me.
I wouldn’t like to have to hand carry it for 18 holes though.
Well constructed umbrella in all ways except one, which is particularly relevant to me. In the picture, the top of the umbrella shaft appears to be the solid end of the actual umbrella shaft. However, the two umbrellas that I received have a hollow plastic cap (about 1.
5 inches across) on the top of the umbrella. If you are thinking of buying this umbrella for your golf bag, keep this in mind because your golf bag may not be able to hold this umbrella. My problem is different.
I actually bought two of these so that my wife and I could keep dry watching our sons’ lacrosse games (high school lacrosse season in Illinois is cold and wet). The problem is when I am not using the umbrella, I tend to put the tip on the ground (with the umbrella folded up) an occasionally lean on it a bit (not a lot).
Crack! The plastic cap shattered. And, I hadn’t used it in the rain yet. I mended the broken one and reinforced the unused one with Tear-Aid. It remains to be seen if that works well or not. Regardless, I have two umbrellas that have never seen a rainstorm that look like someone patched them together.
Otherwise, this umbrella seems to be very well made and offered at a great price. If the plastic cap isn’t a problem for you, I would recommend it.
Stay protected against rain, wind and sun using the BagBoy 62 inch UV wind vent umbrella. To keep you safe, the umbrella does not conduct electricity and has a diameter of 62″ (157. 5cm) for maximum comfort and coverage.

On the town or out on the course you’ll be protected from cloudbursts with this Golf Stick umbrella from Totes. In a colorblock design this extra-large umbrella is great for storms thanks to a lightweight yet durable fiberglass shaft and a comfortable rubber grip.

This umbrella is awesome. It is large enough for my toddler and I to not get wet. It is very sturdy and upholds in the wind. Great quality product. It also has the option of adding insurance. I didn’t not purchase the insurance but would definitely purchase this umbrella again if needed.
A golf umbrella is an excellent choice for sun protection, as it offers a large canopy that can provide shade for multiple people at once. It is important to choose a golf umbrella that is made from a durable, UV-resistant fabric in order to ensure that it will provide long-lasting sun protection.
Additionally, it is important to choose a golf umbrella that has a sturdy frame in order to prevent it from blowing away in windy conditions.
