With airline travel continuing to be tough on luggage, it’s best to have a quality travel cover to protect your much-valued golf equipment. Few are better than the models from Club Glove.

A new brand on the scene but one with Canadian roots and a fresh take on golf style. The Oxford Pique Pocket Polo is perfectly suited for wear from the first tee to the 19th hole and beyond. While complete with use of technical fabrics it does not carry an overly “sporty” look that might look out of place in an office environment. Great fit and four sweet colour options. www.bradley-allan.com
