1. Vegan Golf Gloves

The number one offender in the golf game for vegans is the golf glove. Most gloves are made from Cabretta leather and it is very difficult to find a glove that performs and isn’t made with animals. You can find a number of synthetic options for wet-weather gloves, but nothing for regular play. That’s where the Callaway brand comes in, with their Synthetic offering. I’ve personally used these gloves and they are long-lasting, fit like a, well, glove, and provide great grip for a low scoring round!

2. Recycled Pro V1 Golf Balls

Over 300 Million golf balls are lost in the US each year (won’t someone think of the Handicaps!) but you can reduce your own waste with these life-hack Recycled Golf Balls. I know what you’re thinking, you don’t want someone else’s balls, but these are Titelist Pro V1s! They’ve been washed, refinished and tested to ensure their quality matches that of new balls. Not only will you save money (these babies are $5 a ball, new), but you’ll also contribute to waste reduction, making it a hole-in-one for the environment.

3. G-Fore Vegan Golf Shoes

While G-Fore have a number of leather-clad options (as do MOST golf shoe producers) it’s nice to know you can go for the non-leather option in show-stopping style. Step up your game with cruelty-free and sustainable golf shoes. Choose from a range of stylish and eco-conscious options, featuring materials like cord and plant-based fabrics. Enjoy peak performance while leaving a lighter footprint on the course.

4. On Course Snackz

That’s right, four or five holes in and you’ve skipped breakfast and that 5-iron into the green seems like hard work. It’s time to break out the vegan protein bar and power up. These babies have got me through some of my toughest rounds, and they taste delicious!

5. TaylorMade Cart Bag.

6. Liberty LSV Golf Cart.

Ok so it’s 20k USD, who cares, it’s electric. You’re one of them rich Vegans, and you’re hell bent on shooting low scores but not digging another damn oil well. You can drive it from your house straight to the first tee, and drop the kids to school on the way. What’s going to stop you? Not gas prices!

7. Perfect Practice Putting Mat

Ok this is a stretch, but because it doesn’t use leather or harm animals in it’s construction and the fact that I have a cheaper version of this but have been secretly lusting after this version, and hey while our run-on sentence is just getting warmed up let’s not forget it’s also endorsed by Dustin Johnson whom I personally saw putting at the US Open this year to good effect, it stands to reason that I would recommend this product.

8. Nike Reversable Belt

There’s a couple of options on this front (I personally own a couple of Underarmour belts) but Nike gets the nod for a reversable, customizable belt to keep your pants at a respectable height around the links.

9. Daphne’s Head Covers

This is where you get to advocate for your animal of choice. Tiger has a tiger, I have a rooster (given to me by my daughter for father’s day), but you have your own schtick. Maybe it’s a beaver? A Moose? A Shark? I don’t know. But what I DO know is that pulling out driver and sharing your spirit animal story with your playing mates will only add 20-30 yards to your drive I won’t hear anything to the contrary.

10. Bamboo Golf Tees

Finish off your eco-friendly golf kit with some Bamboo Golf Tees. Made from plant-based materials, these tees will naturally break down over time, leaving no harmful traces on the course. Plastic tees end up in the ocean and wreak havoc on a dolphins short-game.
