What are the Different Golf Glove Sizes?

By Kim Kleinle

Golfers wear a glove to prevent the club from slipping during the swing. Right-handers wear it on the left hand, while lefties wear it on the right. Golf gloves should fit snugly and are available in sizes to fit just about anyone.


Golf gloves are available in sizes for men, women and juniors, in both right-handed and left-handed.

Men's Sizes

Sizes for men are regular and cadet in small, medium, medium-large, large, extra-large and double-extra large. Cadet sizes have shorter fingers and a wider palm.

Women's Sizes

Most glove manufacturers offer women's sizes in small, medium and large, although FootJoy also has women's gloves in medium-large and extra-large.

Junior Sizes

Junior sizing varies from one manufacturer to another. FootJoy, the leading golf glove company, offers small, medium, medium-large and large, while U.S. Kids Golf offers sizes small, medium, large and extra-large.


Try before you buy. While adult sizing is similar, it can vary among manufacturers, so if you want your golf glove to "fit like a glove," try it on first.

Fit Tip

The fit should be taut across the palm and the back of your hand with no slack or bunching. To adjust, smooth the glove with your other hand. The glove should feel like a "second skin."
