Product Review: Basic Golf ClassicCool Golf Shirt

product review by

My closet contains an assortment of shirts that I have bought while living in Michigan and in Florida. But it wasn't until I had been living in Florida for awhile, that I realized that the majority of my shirts were horrible in the heat and humidity!

It didn't take me long to find a solution, however. I started buying a few shirts that claimed to be breathable and lightweight. These shirts worked great! They work because they wick away moisture from your skin. This allows me to keep cool and to stay comfortable, whether I'm golfing, or out on the town. I have no problem finding shirts with this type of technology, but the cost for these shirts is extravagant. I only have a few of them because paying $70 or more for a shirt can hurt your pocketbook, especially if your on a budget, like I am!

Ed Lemire, President of Basic Golf, contacted me recently asking if I would like to try one of their golf shirts. I have been contacted by numerous companies asking me to try out different products and what I have discovered, is sometimes the product is not as good as made out to be. But I am always willing to try a product with an open mind and that's what I have done with the golf shirt that Ed sent me.

I wasn't sure which shirt Ed would be sending me, so prior to receiving my new shirt, I went over to the Basic Golf website to see what they had available. They have 2 styles of shirts. One style is called the SportCool Golf Shirt, and the other is called ClassicCool. The SportCool shirts come in 3 colors, Limone, White, and Navy, whereas the ClassicCool is available in Ice Blue and Wasabi Green. They both use CoolDry™ fabric to keep you cool. From the pictures, they looked very nice and I liked the fact that they are athletically cut. None of my other breathable shirts are made like that. But what really caught my attention was the prices. Both shirts were nearly half what I paid for my name brand shirts! But, did the lower prices mean lower quality, I wondered?

When I opened the box that my new shirt and hat were delivered in, I was immediately surprised. My new shirt was the ClassicCool shirt in the Wasabi Green color. The SportCool has a zip in the front, while the ClassicCool shirts have buttons. I didn't care about that, I just wanted to give it a test run. And that's just what I did.

After a round of golf in the middle of the afternoon, with the heat index over 100 degrees, I no longer was wondering about the quality of this shirt. These shirts are top notch and I have to say, that I have never been more comfortable in a shirt before, especially playing golf. The way the shirt is designed it's extremely durable and it really allows you to move freely. When I got done with my round, I stepped into the clubhouse and looked at my face in a mirror and my forehead was beaded up with sweat but my shirt, believe it or not, was dry to the touch! I was totally impressed, and I am certainly going to be ordering a few more.

I have been totally convinced now that you can get cool looking, top quality merchandise for reasonable prices. I want to thank Ed Lemire, over at Basic Golf, for allowing me to try their product. And to my readers I want to say, check out Basic Golf! I wasn't disappointed and I'm sure you won't be either.

Some of these items may even be on sale!

But there are other specific things that golfers may be searching for, such as divot tools, ball warmers, personalized grips, gloves, putters, visors, hats, swing trainers, women's golf clothing, men's golf apparel, or other golf gadgets. Well if you are searching for these specific things, then there is an online golf store that carries these specific items and they are cool and unique.

Maybe you have heard of King Golf Products, and maybe you haven't. Well after today, you won't be able to say that anymore. Corey King, from King Golf Products, and I became acquainted with each other through Myspace. He is a great guy and his company is really cool, too. King Golf is growing fast and there is a reason for that! They have a lot of great products!

King Golf is dedicated to the game of golf, the etiquette of golf, and to the values that make the game of golf truly special. They respect tradition, but at the same time they add style and class.
They have a vast array of of items that appeal to all types of golfers, including men, women, and children. The golf wear offered by King Golf may even appeal to those that don't love golf....yet!


Here is their mission statement:

"Our ultimate mission is to make a difference in the game of golf and life by appealing to REAL people and issues that interest them.

Along with traditional products, we will always offer fresh and unique items/apparel to appeal to everyone. Our Dog Tags for kids is a perfect example of what separates us from the rest!
Our company, products and mission are a great compliment to every golf course, golfer, pro shop, retailer and/or charity that promotes awareness of important issues. We think, by working together, the values of our game will help benefit everyone!"

I've had a chance to study some of the history of this company and I am amazed at how determined Corey and his crew have been to get King Golf going. And they are not slowing down! On a regular basis they are sponsoring more and more Professional Golfers, such as Leah Wigger, who won on the Duramed FUTURES Tour, and who is also a non-exempt rookie on the LPGA Tour. Other Professionals that are sponsored by King Golf include Mike Perry, Scott Alpi, and PJ Palmer.

King Golf Products have been featured in some pretty prestigious Golf Magazines, as well. In addition, they love to work with kids, trying to help them have fun playing the game, but to also respect the game. They are a great company for beginners of golf.

Like I said before, they carry a lot of merchandise! They have stuff for guys, girls, and kids. They have a lot of neat golf accessories as well. And you can try these items for yourself or give them as golf gifts.
