Pressed for time? Read this micro SUMMARY
Mitt Golf is a UK-based golf glove subscription service that offers two subscription options – ‘Club’ and ‘Pro’. The Club subscription costs £9.99 and entitles subscribers to receive one golf glove every three months, while the Pro subscription costs £8.99 per month and entitles subscribers to receive a new glove every month. Mitt Golf’s gloves are made of Cabretta leather and come in one style with a light green tag stitched onto the side. The gloves are well-made, comfortable, and perform well on the golf course. Mitt Golf’s subscription-based model helps golfers save money and provides convenience, and gloves are delivered within 48 hours of the initial order and then on an ongoing regular basis.
1 - Who are Mitt Golf?
Mitt Golf is the UK’s first dedicated golf glove subscription brand. They produce high-quality golf gloves that are sent directly to you on either a monthly or quarterly basis depending on the subscription you sign up for. Aside from the convenience of having new golf gloves sent directly to your door, Mitt Golf subscribers can also potentially save over £90 a year when compared to buying branded golf gloves from the likes of your local club professional or golf store.
2 - How do their subscriptions work?
There are two main subscription options offered by Mitt Golf – ‘Club’ and ‘Pro’. The Club subscription costs £9.99 and entitles you to be sent one brand new golf glove every 3 months. This option is best suited to golfers who play infrequently, perhaps once or twice a month.
For those of you who play golf on a more regular basis, for example, a couple of times each week, the Pro subscription priced at £8.99 per month, whereby you will receive a new glove on a monthly basis might be the more appealing option.
3 - Looks and fit
As a newcomer to the golf industry, Mitt Golf currently only has one style of golf glove available. It looks like a fairly traditional golf glove but is not too bland thanks to the light green tag stitched onto the side. Although relatively small and discrete, the colour of the tag may not be to everyone’s taste, so this is perhaps something Mitt could consider offering variations on in the future. A black version of the glove for use during the winter months would also be welcomed, however, I think this would probably need to be synthetic rather than Cabretta leather to be hard-wearing enough for the wetter/dirtier conditions.
The Cabretta leather feels incredibly soft and the fit (I wear small) is perfect – both helping to provide all-round comfort. As you can see from the above images and below video, it really is a lovely-looking golf glove and every single glove I’ve received so far has been of the highest quality in terms of its finish.
4 - Quality and on-course performance
Mitt Golf’s subscription service takes the hassle and expense out of buying traditional golf gloves. Not only are their gloves essentially half the price of those stocked by your local golf pro or golf store but they’re sent directly to you based on how often you play (and the subscription you choose), meaning you’re likely to always have a new or relatively new glove ready to help you play your best golf.
In addition to this, Mitt Golf gloves are packaged in a single 100% FSC-certified paper envelope, so there’s none of the unnecessary plastic packaging that traditional golf gloves usually come inside – most of which often ends up in the landfill bins next the first tee never to be recycled.
5 - Why should I subscribe to Mitt Golf for my golf gloves?
In the many years I’ve played golf, I’ve worn gloves from a wide-range of manufacturers including FootJoy, Srixon, Wilson and TaylorMade, an in all honesty, the Mitt Golf gloves are every bit as good as any of them, if not better. They are very well made, with neat stitching and no scores, scratches or loose threads.
In terms of on-course performance, I’ve found the Mitt Golf gloves to wear well and have not noticed any creasing, tearing or cracking in the leather, even after several uses. Whilst Mitt recommend amateur golfers change their gloves every 6-8 rounds, if you buy the correctly sized glove for your hand and look after it properly, you should be able to get more than one month out of each glove even if playing twice weekly. Of course, this will largely depend on playing conditions, correct sizing, swing speed, grip pressure and generally how well you look after the glove when you’re not using it (e.g. not stuffing it into your golf bag when wet).
I’ve worn my Mitt Golf gloves during moderately light rainfall and haven’t experienced any noticeable drop in performance in terms of grip, but it has never been more than a few spits of light rain when I’ve played. Personally, when it gets really wet on the golf course, I prefer to wear specifically designed wet-weather gloves for optimal performance rather than a standard golf glove. In my experience, no golf glove, whether synthetic leather, Cabretta leather or other is worth wearing when it gets really wet out on the golf course – wet weather golf gloves are a must for any golfer playing in variable weather conditions.

6 - Final Thoughts
In summary, Mitt Golf offers a premium golf glove which looks good, fits nicely and performs well on the golf course. I’ve found it really helpful knowing that I always have a new or nearly new golf glove in my bag ready for my next round, giving me one less thing to worry about before I tee off.
Their subscription-based model helps save golfers money and is convenient, especially given gloves are delivered within 48 hours of the initial order and then on an ongoing regular basis. What’s more, if you do find yourself with a surplus of golf gloves or not receiving them regularly enough then you can always switch to a more suitable subscription package or cancel completely through your online account.
