Review: GFORE Golf Gloves



Pros: Extremely soft, comfortable fit with distinct, colorful styles.

Cons: Price ($35 each). No children’s sizes.

Bottom Line: They’re pricey, but you’ll be hard pressed to find a wider selection of colors and styles from another golf glove maker.


GFore was founded by fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli. If you’re a Target shopper, his name may sound familiar because in 2000 Giannulli brokered the first ever designer-exclusive distribution deal with Target Stores.

With Giannulli’s background in fashion and love for golf, he combined function and style in his GFore golf brand, which sells golf gloves, shoes, hats, socks and golf bags. The young brand has already secured major endorsers of its products, with Tom Watson, Jonas Blixt Robert Rock, Rickie Barnes and Tommy Armour III all wearing the company’s gloves.

GFore’s golf gloves are available in more than three dozen colors and styles, and cover a wide range of size needs: small to large for women, and small to XXL for men. Cadet sizes are also available.

The stock gloves are priced at $35 each and fully customizable GFore gloves costs $50 each.

GFore golf gloves are some of the softest, most buttery gloves I have ever worn. That’s thanks to their construction — they’re made from fine AA Cabretta leather — but somehow they’re still surprisingly durable.

I tried four gloves in two different sizes to get my perfect fit. I have long, slender fingers so it’s exceptionally difficult for me to find gloves that are long enough in the fingers, but tight enough to give me a snug fit. The medium is the closest I have come to finding something that fits great on my hand. It really has a natural feel, and its a glove that I don’t mind wearing for a long time.

Despite the bright colors, I haven’t had any staining issues with the gloves rubbing off on my clothes or the color-bleeding onto my hand.

Looks and Feel

The colored glove is not new to the market, but I have not seen the concept executed better than what GFore has produced.


Pictured are four women’s gloves in Blossom, Clover, Lemon and the two-toned Wisteria. GFore has a large array of colors to choose from in both men’s and women’s gloves, and you can even design an entirely custom glove on the company’s website. You have to truly appreciate that customized glove, however, as one will cost you a whopping $50.

The colors of the gloves in person are just as vibrant as how they appear in the pictures and on their website. Their closures are made with strong velcro, so once they’re on they’re not going anywhere.

The leather on the outside of the glove is one of the softest pieces of leather I have ever felt. The inside of the glove feels similar to other Cabretta leather gloves, although, I wish there was a way to take away the feel of the seems. They’re not a deal breaker, however, and seem to help the gloves keep their shape, even with extended use.

The Takeway

As long as you can stomach the price, GFore golf gloves are a great way to add some fun to your golf wardrobe without going overboard. Their quality construction will also please even the pickiest golfers.

    I really think golfer should wear gloves both of their hands. There is no reason just wearing one glove. I never understand the logic wearing only one glove. I constantly have to use “repair lotion” to take care of the hand without using the glove. I really don’t understand it… I am with you, Kimberly… Too bad, Tommy-Two-Glove was short lived…

    These are hands down the best gloves I have ever played with. I always stock up every year at their Black Friday sale when they are cheaper…

    Put them in high end proshops at exclusive clubs and they should sell quite well. I would not see this item doing well at mass retail stores or public, semi-private golf courses. They might also do well at some resort facilities serving affluent clientele.

    I wonder why we golfers wear a glove anyway. After all, the early greats of this game – Hogan, Snead et al – didn’t and they played with relatively slippery leather grips. Today’s modern rubber/ rubber compound grips are so tacky and soft, I just don’t see the point of wearing a glove. I stopped wearing a glove two years ago and my game hasn’t suffered from losing the grip on my clubs. I practice twice a week and play at least onceand have developed exactly the mild callouses Hogan describes in the “Five Lessons”. And I play in the Pacific NW in all kinds of weather (mostly rain). I wonder if the golf glove has simply become one of the affectations of our game.

      That’s great that your hands don’t get tore up! My hands are so sensitive that I’m almost tempted to start wearing two gloves. I mean, I WON’T, but I’m tempted!

GolfWRX Spotlight: Crossrope weighted jump rope & app



An 18-hole round of golf averages out to just under five miles of walking, which on its own is a good workout. Once you throw in some potential uphill trekking you get some serious cardio too, but if you all looking for a quick workout between rounds of golf look no further than Crossrope.

Crossrope – The details

Crossrope is a system of the weighted jump rope that allows you to quickly switch the weight of the ropes you are using to boost your workout—they range from 1/4 lbs all the way up to 2 lbs depending on the kit you start out with. There is an accompanying app that helps you go through multiple workout routines and is available free, or you can upgrade to the entire library of workout routines along with more workout tracking options.

This is NOT your middle school jump rope

The handles are heavy duty and feature precision bearings to allow the rope to move smoothly around as you go through a routine. They are also ergonomic and fit into your hand naturally, which making gripping easy, something that is really nice when you’re swinging a 2 lbs coated steel cable around. The handles also come with a fast clip system to make changing cables depending on your selected workout easier too.

The ropes themselves are made from braided steel and are almost impossible to tangle, allowing them to be easily transported and stored when not in use. All in you are getting a premium piece of workout equipment that is effective and easy to store—hard to same the same thing about a treadmill.

When it comes to a workout, skipping rope is one of the most effective cardio workouts you can do, and with Crossrope, you can get both cardio and low impact weight training when using the heaviest ropes, and follow along with the guided workouts.

As someone that hadn’t used a jump rope in over a decade, starting out lighter was a nice way to ease in before moving up, and I was pleasantly surprised how easy and fun some of the workouts in the app were. If you are looking for a fun way to add something to your workouts, or you just want to try something new to get you into golf course walking shape, this could be right up your alley.

WRX Spotlight: Athalonz EnVe—The best golf shoes you’ve never heard of



One of the coolest parts of being in this part of the golfing world is being able to shed light on smaller companies that typically get overshadowed by their bigger corporate brothers.

So, this post is about one of those products that is definitely competitive against top golf shoe companies, and it’s made by a company called Athalonz, which is based out west in Arizona. Typically known for its innovative baseball cleats and insole packages, Athlonz newest addition takes the patented design to the world of golf with the EnVe golf shoe.

These have started appearing on the world long drive circuit due to the amount of traction they get, allowing players to swing harder. So for the last few months, I have gotten to wear them and see if they are as good as the company claims.

Athalonz EnVe: Living up to claims

The main selling points of these shoes are focused on two things

  1. Design that delivers more power and stability
  2. Custom comfort that lasts all day

These are somewhat difficult to combine into one shoe, and though they are on the heavier side, Athlonz are completely worth it for the benefits. It is obvious that they made strides to hit each box on the list for a great shoe. The patented design has been adapted from their baseball cleat and introduces a spikeless golf shoe with a circular design that allows the player to gain traction through the golf swing. This gives a player the chance to swing harder and faster without losing their footing. They also offer insole packages that help with correct bodyweight placement to help add an extra layer of consistency.

Secondly, it’s very noticeable that there was plenty of thought given to comfort with a roomy toe and custom insoles to fit your style. Additionally, ankle padding helps to provide more stability and comfort.

On another note, they have a good sense of style with a more classic, casual take. In addition to the pictured white/brown color, there’s a black/grey colorway as well.

After multiple months of wear in all types of conditions, these shoes have performed great for me with all the traction I need and while feeling great throughout the round.


I am a person who tends to support smaller companies when I can if they make good products. Any support for them goes a long way—especially in the golf business. Since these shoes will set you back about $150, I wanted to be sure they are worth it for the money and they absolutely are. Seriously, for anyone looking to boost their shoe game and help alleviate aching feet and ankles, give these a shot.

GolfWRX Spotlight: Nikon Coolshot 20 GII and 20i GII



Every golfer should have an accurate, reliable, easy-to-use rangefinder. With the new Nikon Coolshot 20 GII and 20i GII, you get all of that and more in one of the smallest, lightest packages on the market.

Not only do you get a ton of features, but when you consider these devices start at only $199.99 for the 20 G II and then $229.99 for the 20i GII ( slope adjusted version ), you get one of the best values in a rangefinder from one of the most well-known consumer optics companies in the world.

Review: Nikon CoolShot 20 GII and 20i GII

First Target Priority and 8-Second Continuous Measurement: “First Target Priority” is Nikon’s way of making sure you are picking up the flag and not a tree behind your intended target. There is nothing worse than thinking you have your distance dialed in to then have a shot fly over the green. With how quickly it lets you know the ranger finder is locked, getting that distance and double-checking can happen remarkably fast.

In the eight-second continuous measurement setting, the rangefinder will continuously measure the field of view as you scan the target area for approximately eight seconds. This setting is great when playing unfamiliar courses or trying to figure out the exact spot to a dogleg, tree, or hazard on your intended line.

Bright, 6x Monocular: Nikon is known for its glass and multi-coating technology, from telephoto camera lenses to rifle scopes, if it’s Nikon glass, it’s going to be clear, fog-resistant, and high-contrast for easy viewing. From a viewing experience perspective, the Coolshot 20 GII’s 6x monocular has an adjustable diopter for sharp focusing, along with long eye relief—meaning you can keep your glasses (or sunglasses) on when acquiring your target.

Slope-Adjusting ID Technology: With the 20i GII you have the option to get the slope-adjusted distance for any shot thanks to Nikon’s ID Technology. The mode can be turned on and off by the user to comply with USGA rules to make it legal for tournament rounds. Having tested it out on hilly terrain it’s easy to see why so many golfers mis-club going into greens when elevation changes become a lot more dramatic.


The Nikon Coolshot 20 GII’s size and weight make it ideal for anyone who regularly carries and wants the benefit of knowing distances but without having to worry about weight—it weighs about the same as a sleeve of balls.

The size allows you to hold the units stable. However, I could see for those new to the rangefinder space, it could take some time getting used to when first getting acquainted with it. The best bet for this is to take it to a range or just step outside with it on your next walk and get used to hitting targets before you take it to the course—plus it makes for a fun game to see how good you really are at estimating distances.

Overall, for the price and size, it is one of the best rangefinders on the market. Plus, with a five-year warranty, you can be assured of years of use with the Nikon CoolShot 20 GII rangefinders.
