Maximize Your Golf Glove's Life: Signs When It's Time to Replace and How to Keep It in Top Condition

Think of your golf gloves as a nice and comfortable pair of shoes. Over time they reach that point where they fit perfectly and give you that loving feeling. But they will wear out and need to be replaced.


  1. Dirty: Over time, your dirty hands, sweat and the dirt of nature will discolor the glove. While a flawless color isn't the only reason to change gloves, it's a good indication of how long you've been using them and can help you decide if it's time for a replacement.

  2. Brittle: Your glove is so soaked in hand sweat that it hardens in your golf bag. Do not force your hand into a hardened glove.

  3. Warped: Over time your glove will warp due to the sweating mentioned earlier. If you put it on and it feels too small, drop it and get a new one.

  4. Plays A LOT of golf: If you are a serious golfer, it is always good to have more than one glove in your golf bag. It's a good idea to switch between them between holes, or you can alternate between gloves every day. Remember that it is good to let the glove sweat and dry before hitting again.

  5. Damaged: If your golf glove has a few holes in it, you don't need someone to tell you that you need to buy a new one.


Here are some of the best ways to extend the life of your gloves: Keep your glove dry: Avoid picking up a wet water bottle, holding a wet golf ball, or touching your sweaty face. Be very careful when storing your golf glove after use. If you put it in your pocket, it will harden in that position and that means your glove will be brittle when you take it out of the bag for the next round. It is best to store it flat without folding or deforming it and place it in a Ziploc bag when it is clean and dry.
