I own a full set of pretty rubbish Dunlop clubs, I'm not an expert golfer, but I do enjoy a game and I'm not too terrible! I was advised by my grandfather that a golf glove is important when you play golf as it gives you better grip and feel With the club. I went to sports direct to get one and I got this one glove for £2.99, for such a cheap price I wasn't expecting much as I know you can spend a fortune on more expensive ones. I have owned a few Dunlop products In the past and have felt that were all of good quality and they worked! I bought this for such a cheap price and I have been very satisfied with it. I will now go into a little more detail on the product.
How does it feel?:
It feels very nice to wear and for me it is a very nice fit. It goes on very easily and stays on. It's not too tight and feels great when holding the club. It may not be as good fitting on someone's else's hands, but for me it's perfect. When holding the club you can feel it well and you feel that you have considerably more grip than you do when not wearing a glove. I have used it in the wet before and it gave me good grip. I'm no expert, but i feel I play much better when I have this on. You only have to wear one glove so it does feel strange, Im so used to wearing two gloves I do feel a little bit funny. The glove also stops my hands from rubbing and hurting, when you have dry skin it can really hurt if you play a round of golf, so this protects your hands and gives you much more grip.
What does it look like:
I have the white one which is displayed in the picture above, but there are other colours on the shelf. I do feel like a bit of a poser with white gloves, but I suppose it's the fashion! It looks nice on and makes me feel a little more professional than when I am without it. Many of my friends do not use gold gloves, but I feel better with them on. It also has a strap which is Velcro to keep the glove as tight as you need It to be.
I am very happy with my golf glove and it was a very cheap price, it makes me better at golf and adds grip. I'm sure many pros would not use this particular product, but if your a casual golfer who what's a cheap glove that does the job, then give this a try! I will be giving this product a 4 star rating as its very good, I am not a fan of its looks! Thanks for reading my review! I hope it helped you. Josh
Being a Lady Golfer, I have the ladies' Dunlop All Weather Golf Glove. It's exactly the same as the men's version, but it is smaller, obviously, and it is styled in white with pink stripes down the fingers (where the men's would have red).
Mine cost the bargain price of £4 from eBay with around £2 postage. The gloves come in left or right handed versions in the sizes small, medium and large, I went for the medium and it fits very well.
It is presented in a pink and black clear plastic sleeve which states 'carefully selected synthetic leather combination provides good comfort, flexibility and value for golfers of all standards'.
One thing about this glove is that it cannot be washed at all - hand, machine or tumble dried. It is best treated with a cleaning wipe, and I use a deodorising spray after use to keep it clean and fresh. I have never played golf in the rain and can't comment on shrinkage but as it's synthetic I can't imagine it shrinking all that much in wet weather.
The glove isn't too bulky, too, it allows for more intricate movements and picking up balls, handling tees and so on. You can even hold a pencil and write quite neatly, too. The glove doesn't place too much pressure on any one part of the hand, meaning that there is no aching in the palm or thumb joint afterward and no blisters either.
For the money I paid I am very happy with my glove. Yes, professionals will use a far more expensive and personalised glove but as an off the shelf all leather glove the Dunlop is excellent at what it does, looks good and is built to last. You will pay a lot more in a golf shop for this glove so my advice is to do as I did and buy one new from eBay for a decent saving.
The glove would make an excellent gift to a lady golfer no matter what her level, and even if she already has a glove as I always carry two. Overall I will give this four out of five stars because the RRP of £12.99 is a bit steep when you can buy them so heavily discounted. I would like to see more reasonably priced golf gear on the high street and to encourage new players. Other than that it is a well made, attractive and functional golf glove which is comfortable and supportive and I will highly recommend it.
The golf glove is an essential piece of kit for any golfer. It ensures a better grip on the shaft of the club, allowing you a better chance of playing both a controlled and effective shot, whilst also protecting your fingers and contact points from friction burns and skin irritation. It is always good to have a few in your possession, I feel that some are better than others on warm days, cold days and also they perform differently in the rain. The grip is quickly worn down on them anyway and they aren't particularly expensive so why not have a couple!
The dunlop all weather
Cut to the chase. As gloves go, this looks fantastic. The white design with red, yellow and black motifs really sets it apart and makes it appear like a classy piece of golfing attire - which it is. In a world where golf can be described as boring, this is probably a product with a small amount of individuality and expression - always nice to see.
The fit is good, comfortable and sensible. I have the medium size, i think i have kind of medium sized hands so it works well for me, and i would recommend it on this basis. As is standard with many golf gloves it has a number of vents down the fingers and on the knuckles, but i find that they don't really provide you with too much cool air ventilation, so i generally use this as a winter glove or on cold days.
The glove also comes with a little pitch marker down one side of it which is handy on the course - it means you can place your ball marker and pick up your ball, allowing you to clean it or remove any marks without any hassle - again this is fairly standard but is appreciated anyway.
I got this glove from my local club for £12.99, but looking on American Golf, at the time of writing, it is very slightly cheaper than this, so it depends how badly you want it delivered quickly and how bothered you are over a couple of quids!
Fairly standard golf glove particularly good for cool days.
Golf is a game which famously spoils a good walk as said by Mark Twain but wet weather spoils a good game of golf, one of the more embarrassing events when playing golf is trying to hit an iron and the club going further than the ball. Gripping your golf club is probably the most important aspect of any golf shot and unless you have a paid caddee with umbrella and a bag with a hood then in wet weather your golf handles will get wet. So to get any purchase on the shaft you need something with a decent degree of grip, so enter the Dunlop glove. The glove is only worn on the dominant hand and only really for shots up to the green, most players prefer to putt without the glove as the putting stroke is the most sensitive and the one where the player feels the need to sense the club through his hands.
So the glove is used from tee to green, and is very slightly padded and the areas around the fingers and palm are grooved facilitating the gripping of the club by the player. The club extends to just above the wrist and is secured by a piece of Velco, by the way please be considerate about taking your glove off whist another player is mid-swing as the ripping of the Velco support is loud enough to put a player off. As with nearly all golfing aids you can of course play without a glove and indeed some professional players like Freddie Couples never play with a glove but a golfing glove is one of the more useful golfing aids and will improve your game. The glove is particularly useful under wet conditions, when the grooving on the glove stops the club slipping and the player getting full value for his shots.
Dunlop sell an awful lot of golfing merchandise but there gloves are amongst the best, they retail for around £15 but pretty much last forever and can be washed if they do get dirty, muddy or grassy. They do help with gripping the shaft, they also keep the hand warm if needed during cold weather and are small enough to be kept in the players back pocket. They come in cream, black and white and I've been using one for a couple of years. I'd like to say it has coincided with a big improvement in my game but that would be a lie, however, I never play without it and would certainly buy another pair if these wear out.
So a useful golfing aid and one I'd buy again given a choice of different gloves.
Anyone who has played golf in damp conditions will know that trying to keep hold of a club with a wet grip can be a tricky task. I once played golf in the rain with a chap whose club flew from his grasp mid-round - it soared through the air sixty or seventy yards before landing in a bush. The chap in question was obviously rather embarrassed, but nevertheless it was a hilarious moment (I guess you had to be there!). It's important then to invest in an all-weather glove - a glove which not only keeps your hand dry, but also *reduces* the possibility of the aforementioned embarrassing incident.
Buying an all weather glove doesn't take that much of an investment, as Dunlop's rain friendly little number is currently available to buy for only £3.99 from Sports Direct - but is it any good?
Design & Appearance
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Made from a synthetic leather, the glove is white in colour with black and red trim. It's available in small, medium, and large, and there is a version for left handed players (to be worn on the right hand). The glove is comfortable to wear, and fastens with a large velcro tab. I've gone through a number of these gloves in my time, and with one or two rounds of golf per week, they should last between four and five months. Usually a patch on the palm and around the fingers begins to wear thin after this time, making the normally water-resistant glove perform not so well when the heavens open.
How good is the glove?

In terms of the glove's quality, it works perfectly well in dry conditions (as you would expect), providing a nice and solid grip on the club. In light drizzle, the glove works well too - here, I'm confident that I won't face any slippage during my swing - although, this also depends on the quality of your golf club's grips. In totally wet conditions the glove is a bit of a mixed bag - although in fairness most are. I can honesty say that even the priciest top-branded gloves can't guarantee the golfer total confidence when faced with sopping wet grips. What I can say is that the glove is certainly better than Dunlop's standard glove in the wet, and similarly, I didn't find too much difference between it and Callaway's more expensive all-weather offering.

A golf glove which is suitable for rainy conditions really is a must in this country - and overall, Dunlop's all-weather golf glove is a comfortable, reasonably effective, and affordable item; I'm happy to award it four out of five doyoo stars.
My family love golf and more over the last year my boyfriend has taken it up too. I was starting to get bored with his constant trips to the driving range to practise the things he picked up in his lessons, so I decided to start tagging along. I've not played much golf since I was about 16 and forgot how much my hand used to hurt. So after the first visit to the driving range I decided to invest in a golf glove.
The regular way to wear a golf glove for a right hander like myself would be on the left hand which is the lead hand when hitting with a club. It helps to grip the glove without putting too much strain on your hand and reduces the likelihood of getting a blister. Many golfers don't wear a glove and some actually wear one on both hands; it is very much down to individual preference.
The glove that I decided on was a Dunlop glove; a white one with a pink and black trim which gives it the usual Dunlop retro sporty look whilst remaining quite feminine. This particular glove is the 'all weather' glove which means it is ideal in rain, snow or hot weather - ideal, as keen golfers will play in any weather! The glove is nice and snug around my hand which is how it should fit - it is important to select the right size because if it is too tight it will restrict hand movement and if it is too loose you won't have enough grip on the club. There is an adjustable Velcro fastener across the top which I find useful for adjusting it to make sure it fits my hand comfortably. The strap displays the Dunlop logo, again in pink and black. The glove has ventilation holes along each of the fingers which is good in theory but I don't feel it adds much as when I remove the glove my hand is sweating as you would expect after hitting golf balls. There is also elasticised material over the knuckles which allows the hand to move freely and grip the club properly. The palms are covered in a webbed print for extra grip.
The glove is from the ladies Dunlop golf range and was purchased from Sports Direct. It was reduced from £9.99 to £4.99 which I was happy to pay for a first glove. My partner's is much more expensive and from what I can see it doesn't do much more. I actually noticed it in Sports Direct for only £2 last time I was in there! Amazon are also selling it for £2 at the moment. The all weather golf glove from Dunlop is available for both men and women with a variety of sizes for both sexes.
Dunlop is one of the cheaper brands in golf equipment so I thought this was excellent value and I would recommend it, even though it is fairly ordinary. Strangely, even though I know I bought a 'ladies small' glove, the sticker inside the glove says 'Mens Reg'. There is no chance this glove would fit a guy with regular sized hands! All in all, a good value standard glove, especially for a beginner. 4 out of 5 stars - it is great for the price but loses the extra star because it isn't quite special enough.
I was looking for a glove that was a good all rounder, one that offered good grip when the weather was not great but offered good feel when they weather was better.
So I choose this Dunlop all weather glove, an so far so good. The glove offers reasonable grip, whilst not being overly bulky that it is uncomfortable to wear, unlike some of the other all weather glove I have had over the years.
The gloves look quite nice with some red decal shooting up the fingers, and the Velcro strap stays firm throughout my swing. On top of the strap there is a big dunlop ball marker for when on the green, which is a nice little extra.
At only £3.49 (from SportsDirect) this is definitely a bit of a bargain. Although I would say that the quality is not great, the stitching can be a little uncomfortable, sometimes digging into your fingers, which you would not experience on some better made gloves. In this case though, you get what you pay for. Being fair to the glove I have had it for two years now, and it is still working very nicely.
The grip is spot on on bad weather, whilst still being reasonably thin (allowing reasonable feel for the club).
I would say this about it though, It may be worth investing in an ordinary glove for the summer, although this is an excellent all-rounder, you could pick up a good summer glove such as a Callaway, that feels really nice for around £10, but for the winter months you cannot go far wrong with this glove.
So to sum up, the glove is reasonably aesthetically pleasing, and for the price you really feel like you are getting your money's worth. The grip is good for the winter months, but does not offer the feel a nice thin glove could give you during the summer months.
One of the few items I use regularly in my not so blossoming golf career, which consists merely of a round around the local courses a few times in the summer and a few afternoons at the driving range or whacking a ball around a field, is a glove. Essential for me as I hate getting the rubbing, grating, vibrating feeling and grazes on my hands from the clubs as well as wanting a better grip. And for me since I have started playing the only brand I really would consider is Dunlop.
Dunlop itself is a name synonymous with the sport and when selecting a new golfing golf last summer it's the only brand I went for. I have always went mainly for leather gloves but decided to go for something different and buy this white "weather glove" which I paid £4.99 for although it is available online for cheaper.
The first thing you will notice when you slip on this glove is the quality of it and how snug and tight it feels. It is designed to be flexible and they come in a range of sizes . They are available in a range of colours, of which I bought the white one pictured here, and also in female and male version, of which I have the male one.
The gloves had a net meshing of shorts, usually found in mens shorts, that are designed to let your hand breathe and stop too much sweat resulting in the glove sticking to your hand. This works a treat and I had a few rounds in the summer in the hot hot Sunday afternoons and found the airing around the hand kept it cool, something my leather one didn't. My leather glove leaves my hand feeling tight, sweaty and more irritable. This does not and lets the hand breathe. I had to take it off at times still but not as regularly as I would a normal glove.
It is also very light and thus doesn't weight down the hand too much and fits so much that it doesn't effect gameplay at all. The grip on the front is perfect and gives a tighter grip and feels secure. With Dunlop you can always be guaranteed quality and this product has that in abundance
All in all these are superbly designed gloves made from a tough durable material that will last many seasons. The lightness as well as the mesh inside makes for a comfortable game with a strong grip adding comfort and security to the swing. They are very affordable and carry the excellent added extra of being part of the consistently brilliant Dunlop range!

Having had the pleasure of owning a Dunlop All Weather Golf Glove I thought it might be a good time to review it. As the range of Dunlop All Weather Golf Gloves was heavily reduced when I last visited my local discount sports store, I thought now might be a good time to write about them as they currently offer really good value for money.
Surprisingly when I wanted to review these golf gloves they were not listed on Dooyoo, but as they have now been added I am able to share my thoughts about them. As they are all weather gloves they are suitable for wear in all seasons. They are a little lighter than the leather versions of the gloves, so they can be worn in warmer weather as well as on rainy, colder days.
As I have a recently bought a new set of Dunlop Tour Leather Golf Gloves, which double as my driving gloves too, I feel I am able to contrast those with my single All Weather Glove. I have found the All Weather Glove to be good to use if you prefer a lighter feel and grip when golfing, as the material used allows for that. You can get a closer feel than you do when wearing leather gloves, which may not suit all golfers. I have found these types of glove can be handy to have depending on the course, weather and shot required.
As I have both Dunlop leather and Dunlop All Weather Gloves, I personally feel the leather versions have the slight edge for this time of year. Some may disagree and I know its a matter of personal choice, but I prefer the All Weather Gloves on lighter feeling days. There is something about the fit and feel of the leather gloves that suits me more than the synthetic All Weather ones, but having both types gives me the best of both worlds.
When I bought my set of leather golf gloves they was reduced. The Dunlop All Weather Gloves were also reduced. When I purchased my other gloves those and the All Weather ones were reduced to just £2 per pair in store. There were a good mix of sizes on offer in the All Weather versions and sizes ran from small, medium, medium-large, large and extra large.
There were plenty of mens and ladies All Weather Gloves and the colour range was good with there being lots of white options in both mens and womens sizes. The main difference in the mens and womens gloves is the slight size variation and the difference in the colours available. The womens for instance had white gloves with a choice of pink, yellow or red inserts and the mens had red, yellow and blue. In the black option the colours of the inserts were in stock only in red at the time.
************************************************* ******** My own All Weather Glove is in white with pink inserts and I find that the fit is very comfortable around my fingers with plenty of flexibility where I most need it. I like the fact that I can easily adjust the fit of my glove via the velcro fastener which opens and closes around the front of my glove and encircles my wrist and hand.
The gloves have mesh inserts which allow your hand to breathe when wearing the glove. They also make it easier to flex your fingers and move them as and when needed. This is helpful as it allows you to get the correct grip when golfing. These gloves come in either right or left handed versions to suit your needs and I would advise that its best to try them for snugness prior to purchasing if you can. A golf glove that fits badly is a pretty useless one, so don't leave it to chance by guessing your size.
I feel these Dunlop All Weather Golf Gloves are a good purchase at just £2 per glove as they can sell for up to £6.99 per pair in some golf stores. With xmas on its way I feel these will make really nice stocking filler gifts for the male or female golfer in your life. They come neatly packed in clear fronted plastic packs which makes it easy to pick the style and colour you want.
If buying for someone else make sure that you take a look at the size of their current golf glove so that you get the fit right and keep your receipt in case the size needs changing. Never buy a bigger glove as a just in case option as it will be useless to a golfer, think...'the tighter the fit the better the grip' instead. Try to buy tight enough for a snug fit, without the glove cutting off the circulation or making movement difficult. In other words go for the glove, that fits like a glove! As far as rating these I feel they are not as good as my leather gloves so they get 3 stars.
