    Default Umbrella recommendations

    Hi all, chasing after a decent umbrella to mostly block the sun out. It'll sit on a Caddytek.
    Any recommendations?

    Bunnings or Aldi
    No need to pay the premium price tags unless you play in high wind conditions.

    I have two bunnings umbrellas permanently in the car (one each for Mrs Henno and I) and my 'golf' umbrella is some chinese thing I was given from an old aluminium supplier back in 2006, which is still going strong. On the occasions where I have forgotten the 'golf' umbrella, the Bunnings umbrellas have stepped in and kept the water off just the same as the $200 umbrellas of my playing partners.

    tl;dr spend money on beer, not umbrellas.

    Do the Bunnings umbrellas stop the UV rays though? I used an umbrella at the footy a month or so ago, and got some lovely burns, although it may have been more due to reflection.

    They are silver coated on the underside, but I am not sure if that counts for anything or just made to appear like they have UV protection.

    The Silver "Clicgear" umbrella's are a solid option for sun protection.

    www.bluntumbrellas.com.au do a really good quality umbrella, but you'd pay for it too. I got my mum one as she plays in a fair bot of wind at her course and the rain gets quite heavy at times.

    Yep, unbelievably good umbrellas. Especially in the wind. There's actually a good video on YouTube that shoes how much wind they can handle.
