Druids Golf Glove Review 2023 [Good Value?]

Druids have been creating great value golf equipment for a good few years now. They’re the leaders in premium-level golf products that are at a really affordable value. So the clothing is great, and the trolleys are brilliant to use (such as the Tri-lite 360), but what about the Druids golf gloves?

The range of golf gloves from Druids has a couple of different models. The White PU Performance Glove in a choice of different accent colours, and the Cabretta Leather Tour Glove solid white.

As with all things Druids produce, I knew that I had to give the gloves a try and see what they’re like to use on the golf course.

Therefore, here’s our Druids Golf Glove review to help you decide whether it could be the right choice for you.

Druids Cabretta Leather Tour Golf Glove

I’ve always enjoyed and preferred using a leather glove when playing golf. The feel and performance you get from a premium leather glove are like none other in my opinion.

I’ve never been that picky either on which brand I choose, most of the time it came down to price and convenience. So when I saw that Druids were now offering Cabretta leather golf gloves at just £8 (£20 RRP), it seemed a no-brainer to at least give them a try. For comparison, other top-level brands charge about £14.99+ for a 100% leather glove, so at £8 a glove – it’s incredibly affordable.

When choosing a good premium-level golf glove, there’s a few different factors that are important. Of course, price is important but in terms of performance, what I look for in a glove is durability, feel and fit. A glove that can last you for a good amount of time, not tearing easily or breaking up. It also needs to fit well to ensure that it’s not affecting your golf grip or swing. Finally, if you’re spending money on a leather glove, it needs to give you the right feel and enhance your game.

So does the Druids Cabretta Leather Tour Golf Glove meet those requirements?

First of all, let’s take a look at the feel. Made from 100% ultra-thin Cabretta leather, it does feel very good when gripping the golf club. It’s soft and comfortable like you would expect from other more premium brands. For long shots, it provides a solid grip and for shorter shots, there’s a good connection with the club.

Next up you’ve got the fit. I’ve always tended to go for the size that’s slightly bigger for a golf glove, as anything too tight is more prone to tearing, especially on leather gloves. The Druids Cabretta Leather Tour Glove does have a really nice fit. Perhaps a little long in the fingers, but other than that it’s a nice snug fit with no room for movement during a swing.

Finally, the glove’s durability. Having used the glove for about six rounds, it appears to be holding up pretty well. It’s still soft and comfortable to wear, plus there’s no real signs of wear and tear. Poor-quality gloves in the past have always begun to tear at the top of the palm (where the butt of the club sits), which is not the case with the Druids Cabretta Leather Tour Glove.

Our Verdict

It’s hard to really find a fault with the Druids Cabretta Leather Tour Golf Glove. When you’re paying almost half the price of the other top brands, for basically the same level of quality, it would be silly not to at least try them out.

Of course, as the saying goes, “buy nice or buy twice” and that certainly can be the case when we’re talking about golf gloves. However, having tested the durability of the glove for six 18-hole rounds, it’s clear to see that they’re built to last. So you’re not only getting good performance and feel for your £8, but you’re also getting longevity.

If you’re in the market for a new leather glove, I’d highly recommend the Druids Cabretta Leather Tour Golf Glove.

Druids PU Performance Golf Glove

Druids Golf Glove

Now let’s take a lot at the more budget option from Druids – the PU Performance Golf Glove. This synthetic leather glove comes in a range of different accent colours including green and red. This glove is designed for great comfort, but at a super affordable price (just £5).

Having used this glove for a few rounds of golf, there’s a lot to like.

It is comfortable on the hand and does provide an excellent amount of grip. As with all synthetic gloves, I found the feel provided isn’t great and doesn’t really compare to the all-leather option. The material is pretty soft to the touch, although a little shiny and a bit squeaky to start with.

The finger side panels are a nice touch and help to keep the glove well ventilated which is obviously quite important on those hotter days. The velcro is sturdy and keeps the glove in a good position throughout the swing.

In terms of durability, I’m not totally sure how many rounds you would get out of this glove. The quality does feel pretty good, but having only used it for a few rounds, there are a few things to note.

Firstly, the inside of the glove has started feeling a bit fluffy, with bits of lint starting to accumulate in the fingers. This does feel a little strange, albeit it won’t really affect performance.

The glove has always started to show a fair amount of wear down the centre of the palm. This is the area that gloves in the past have struggled with so it’s not a surprise, but still, it will likely only be usable for a few more months.

Our Verdict

Like the Druids Cabretta Leather Tour Golf Glove, the Druids PU Performance Golf Glove is a really excellent value accessory for your golf game. It’s nice to wear and provides a solid amount of grip throughout a shot.

Unlike the leather option, however, I don’t believe the PU Performance has the durability that I’m after from a golf glove. I wouldn’t expect more premium synthetic gloves to begin showing this sort of wear after just a few rounds of golf.

Yes, the price is a very good one. At £5 you’ll struggle to find a better-value glove. However, for me, I think paying the extra £3 for the 100% leather glove is the far better choice. You’ll get a lot more rounds out of it and it just feels that much nicer to use.
