What is a Cadet Size Golf Glove?

Understanding cadet golf glove sizes is an important aspect as the variety of golf gloves are created for a reason.  Your glove should fit like a second skin, and it is important for that to be true, to be able to enhance feel, grip, and consistency in your game. Cadet golf glove sizes are designed for golfers whose palms are relatively broader, and whose fingers are shorter than the average hand size that standard gloves cater to. Here’s what sets cadet gloves apart:

  • Shorter Fingers: They have shorter finger lengths, suitable for those who find standard gloves too long in the fingers.

  • Wider Palm: Cadet sizes offer a wider palm area, providing a more comfortable fit for those with broader hands.

  • Variety in Sizes: Like standard gloves, cadet gloves come in multiple sizes - usually ranging from Small to Extra-Large.


Opting for a cadet glove size can dramatically improve your comfort and grip if standard gloves never seem to fit right. If you've ever felt like a glove was too tight across the palm or had excess material at the fingertips, a cadet size might be your solution.

  1. Air Dry: Always air dry your gloves. Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources.

  2. Proper Storage: Store them flat or on a glove keeper to maintain shape.

  3. Clean Gently: Use a mild soap and water for cleaning. Avoid harsh chemicals.


Special Considerations in Golf Glove Sizes

  • Weather Conditions: In hot and humid conditions, a glove with good ventilation is essential. For cooler climates, consider a thicker material for extra warmth.

  • Junior Sizes: Special sizes are available for juniors, typically ranging from small to large, designed to cater to different hand structures.

  • Glove Materials: Sizing can often vary from synthetic and leather.  Also keeping in mind that leather tends to stretch, so initially the glove should fit snug.
