Caring for your golf glove is a lot more important than golfers usually think. Crumpling your glove up and stuffing it into your bag is no way to treat an accessory you wear every time you tee off and hit your approach shot. A little bit of TLC can make your golf glove last a lot longer than normal. We’re here to give you a few tips on taking care of your golf gloves so they last longer and feel better on your hand.
1. Get the Right Fit
This is THE most important thing. If a glove is too big or small, there is no doubt the glove will rip or tear easier. Imagine wearing a shirt two sizes too small then bending over… It would rip, right? A golf glove will do the same. On the other hand, having a glove too big will cause access space in the palm, thumb and fingers. This access material causes unnecessary rubbing which leads to holes and rips.
2. Use Packaging to Keep Glove in Original Shape
Straightening the glove to its original shape and inserting them back into the glove packaging will help increase longevity. Our packaging was designed and modified to be the BEST place to keep a glove between rounds. We also have our GLOVE STASH, which can fit up to 4-5 gloves and keeps gloves fresh and organized. Both options will help your gloves tremendously over the long run and both look GREAT.
3. Keep Gloves as Dry as Possible or Dry Out After Rounds
Keeping gloves dry is hard to do on hot, humid days. Luckily our gloves are lightweight and breathable but sometimes even this isn’t enough. Taking your glove off between shots and drying your glove out briefly after the round (before inserting back into packaging) will keep your gloves in tip-top shape.
4. Rotate Between Gloves
Rotating between 2-3 gloves, especially on hot days keeps your gloves from getting soaking wet, which ultimately will help them maintain their durability and form. The glove will also be less crusty after it dries.
5. Limit Hard Pulling on the cuff and Fingers
Pulling on the cuff and fingers will stretch out your glove over time. The more stretched out the glove, the less it will fit like a second skin to your hand, which in turn makes the glove easier to rip. We're not saying that you can't pull on the wrist at all, but pulling on the wrist hard before every shot adds up and will undoubtedly stretch out your glove.
Who We Are
Growing up we loved spending our Summers going 'Up North" on unforgettable golf adventures ... Something about Northern Michigan's pure & serene beauty and seemingly endless array of great tracks to play, stole our hearts from a young age. So, we sought to embody our Up North roots and pay ode to the beautiful North Coast that we've been lucky enough to call home most Summers.
North Coast was born from a vision over two years ago. It was during an Up North golf trip to Northern Michigan. We all had different gloves on and not one of them stood out to us. They were bland, boring, half-ripped and frankly, didn't fit our style. Not only that, but we all seemed to agree that we didn't love the way our gloves felt on our hand. We wanted to look and feel good on the course from head to toe and we knew we weren't the only ones. So, we set out to create our own gloves from the ground up with a simple mission: create high-quality and stylish golf gloves that are beyond comfortable to wear and feel silky smooth on any hand. Two years later, we've finally arrived and we're stoked to release our gloves to all of you. Now grab your sticks & Go Play Golf.
