Fairway & Greene Apparel Review

It’s a sad day here at Ottawa Golf Blog. This will be my last golf apparel review of the 2010 season. Looks like the season is over. All courses in the Ottawa area are closed even though there’s not a lot of snow on the ground. Reality is it’s to damn cold to golf and it doesn't look like it will get mild and the snow that's here is going to melt. Indoor golf season begins!

Enough mourning and on to my review of some golf polo shirts from Fairway & Greene. I’m always excited to review a brand I’ve never worn before and to be honest with you I’d never really heard of Fairway & Greene apparel before this review. Apparently I should be paying more attention in golf pro shop when I play. Fairway & Greene apparel is quite well know in many pro shops, and especially a high end pro shop where you will see Fairway & Greene all the time. I will now start to pay more attention.

The first thing you’ll notice about these men’s polos from Fairway & Greene is they are a very traditional cut and design. The second thing is the quality of the shirt is top of the line.

The two men’s polos I got to review were both 100% mercerized cotton which is a great fabric for late in the season golf. It’s also very durable and has a nice look and feel to the fabric as well. Both were striped but each with their own color palette (Check out Fairway & Greene latest catalog so many colors I can’t name then all). The first one is the Men's Signature Classic Stripe in French Blue, the second one is the the Men's Waterford Stripe Lisle in Wine. Both polos were XL which fit great. Being late in the season I ended up wearing an extra layer under the shirts and they still fit great. Lots of room to swing easy or hard.

These type of designs from Fairway & Greene aren’t normally the kind of golf shirts I wear on the course but the quality was amazing and the fabric of the polos were extremely comfortable. The colors as well for these shirts were great not your regular boring colors. These Fairway & Greene golf shirts really took me off guard I really didn’t think I’d like them usually opting for something different. These won’t be for everyone of course but if your a traditionalist you can’t go wrong with Fairway & Greene. Consider these if your looking for a high end polo for that golfer on your Christmas list.
