G4Free Golf Umbrella

Golf umbrellas are necessary on the golf course, and this highly-rated one makes a great gift. It comes in many different sizes and colors so that you can tailor it for your loved one. The EVA molded grip and automatic open will help golfers open it quickly in inclement weather. The canopy is made with SPF 50 protection to shield them from the sun. It also helps shield the wind with a fiberglass frame.

Our tester had the chance to use and evaluate the previous model and found the medium-sized option comfortably protected two adults while the 40-inch shaft made for easy carrying. The fiberglass frame handled heavy winds well without inverting. The only drawback? The old model was missing a vented canopy design, which has been added to the current pick.
