Club Glove Microfiber Towel

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been on the course wiping off your golf club and thought, “Wow, this towel is doing a great job.” No one? Ok, that’s pretty much what I expected. Your golf towel is one of those pieces of equipment that you don’t think about unless there’s something wrong: not staying wet when you want it to, being soaked when you need it to dry something, being too rough to clean your sunglasses, or simply being too small or too filthy to take dirt off your clubs.

Enter the Microfiber Towel by Club Glove. Club Glove thought of all the problems you could have with your towel and designed a product that would solve all of them. Let’s run down the list:

Club Glove Towel (5).JPG

Problem #1: Towel doesn’t stay wet. The Club Glove Microfiber Towel claims to hold 300% of its weight in water. So what did I do? I tested their claim. The towel weighs in at 7.7 ounces when dry. After a good soaking and wringing out: 24.1 ounces. Marketing claim verified (how often do I get to say that?). All this means that if you soak the towel before you tee off, there will be plenty of moisture left in the towel to clean your wedge after you lay the sod over your approach on 18.

Problem #2: Towel is too wet to dry things. After I did the soak test, I ran my 9 iron’s grip under water. I wrung out the towel a bit more to see how effectively it would dry off the grip in spite of being wet. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the grip was decidedly drier than it started. Bone dry? No. More playable? Absolutely.

Problem #3: Towel is too rough to clean my expensive shades. If you hold the Club Glove Microfiber Towel you’ll see that it’s quite soft, and I had no problem using it to clean off the lenses on my Kaenon shades.


Problem #4: Towel is too small or filthy to hold anymore dirt. First of all, the Club Glove Microfiber Towel is generously sized at 17” X 40”. If that’s not enough, it doesn’t seem to get dirty in the same way that normal towels do. I know that sounds odd, but I think we’re all familiar with the experience of having a towel that is so caked in mud that using it is an exercise in spreading mud around instead of cleaning. I have not had that experience with the Club Glove Microfiber Towel, and not for lack of mud to spread around.

One feature of the towel that some may like and some may not is the slit in the middle of the towel. The towel does not have a ring or grommet that can be used to hook it to the bag; instead the towel slides over a club or two. Personally, I found the towel so large that I just slid it through the towel loop on my bag without any concern about it falling off.

With all these cool features you might be thinking that this towel is expensive, but you’d be wrong. The Club Glove Microfiber Towel is modestly priced at $20 direct from Club Glove. For an additional $10 you can have the towel embroidered with your name or initials.

In conclusion, the Club GloveMicrofiber Towel is an excellent product. It does absolutely everything you want a towel to do. I have a couple of rounds and a few range sessions in with this towel, and I can’t see myself switching back to regular old cotton. In fact, I can give the Club Glove Microfiber Towel the best endorsement possible: I bought a second one with my own money.

I have one of these towels that I picked up from a local course (Yoche De He, awesome B) )
Matt has hit this one dead on. This is a great towel. I have become a firm believer in the putter slit concept.
I used another towel without the slit and it was missed.

I can't stand the feel of microfiber towels/ cloths/etc . They just aren't for me. I've tried to like em because I know they are better, but I get the willy's just thinking of touching them- nails on a chalk board kind of thing.

Not surprising to me. I use a microfiber cloth like this to dry my car. They are perfect for the job. Thanks for the review.

I've got two, one of which I paid $9 at Lidz to have embroidered with my name (you can see it in the pics in my FS ads). I've been using their microfiber waffle towels for a long time now. Great towels, and I'd they'd add embroidery options it'd be ever better, IMO. Kind of like PlayersTowel does. Their(CG's) price point is much more friendly though.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade Tour Issue Superfast 2.0 LCG w/ USPG Black Ops Pearl X 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade SLDR TS 13* with Aldila NV 75X
3 Hybrid: Adams Super LSP 18* (bent to 17*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
4 Hybrid: Adams Super LSP 20* (bent to 21*) w/ KBS Tour Hybrid S flex tipped 1/2"
5-7I : Tour Issued Adams CB2 w/ Dynamic Gold Tour issue S400 hardstepped 1x
8-GW: Tour Issued Adams CB1 w/ Dynamic Gold S400 hardstepped 1x

SW: 56* Cleveland CG12 (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
LW: 60* Cleveland CG12 (CC grooves) w/ Dynamic Gold Spinner
Putter: Mannkrafted Widebody Rattler 34", 71* lie, 4* loft

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

It's a fantastic towel, I feel the best on the market. Whether it's made by Club Glove (who I'm partial too because I've used their golf bags for years and they are very very well made) or Players Towel the microfiber towel has a way of staying wet longer and also able to get the debris out of the hosel much better then a cotton towel.
The Bag:
Cobra Bio Cell + w/ Aldila ATX Blue reg.
TEE CB4 15* w/ Fuji Motore Stiff
TM R7 17.5 HFS w/ Matrix Ozik Code 8 Stiff
