Sometimes you just never know what to expect when reviewing a new product. When I was asked to review the Carnoustie Performance Polo I said sure. I had never heard of them before and my initial thought was cool a new apparel company. BOY WAS I WRONG!
When I started to gather information about Carnoustie Sportswear I was surprised to find out that they have been around for over 20 years. Then I read about the debut of their Spring 16 Men’s Performance Gear here on Golfballed.com. (http://www.golfballed.com/media2/golf-press-releases/18935-carnoustie-sportswear-debuts-spring-16-men-s-performance-outerwear-and-shorts ). I have to tell you I was excited while waiting for the arrival of my Performance Polo.
My package has arrived! :
At first glance I liked the design and the color of the polo. It appeared to be classic with hints of a modern polo. The material felt smooth and light weight. The 4 button placket was a nice touch. The collar appeared different, but how was it different. After a little searching I found out it’s a “Self Collar”, and it’s done this way to give it a modern look.
Time to test drive this baby:
Up on the first tee Bill “The GolfFather” Cuebas !!! The crowd goes crazy all 3 of them. Yes the rest of my foursome. Ah smooth unrestrictive swing, I’m digging this classic fit. Fast forward to the end of round, now it’s time to see how it holds up to my standard test.
Sweat Test – Passed I stayed dry and comfortable
Odor Test – Finished smelling like roses. Passed
One other BONUS I like in apparel I’m wearing is if I’m able to transition from on the course to off the course activities. Happy to write that YES this Carnoustie Performance Polo does just that
Let’s wrap this up and head to the 19th hole. Carnoustie Apparel is “ELEGANT STYLE, TIMELESS APPEAL”. It performed extremely well and has held up over numerous rounds and washes without losing any of its new appeal.
