Golf belts are much the same as normal belts but are often designed with activity in mind. The constant movement from walking the course and swinging a club makes it all the more important that your belt keeps your trousers exactly where they need to be so you aren’t having to hitch them up or leave yourself exposed.
Another thing to consider is, do you want a belt you can wear with more than one outfit or in more than one way? If so there are reversible golf belts that feature different colours on each side. Along with reversibles and those that are made from other materials and fabrics there is always the more traditional, reliable leather golf belt.
