Most golfers are quite content to don the logo of the game’s corporate overlords, major sponsors, or their favorite ball team’s colours, but for the love of Bubba Watson where’s the fun in following the herd?

Upgrade your golf cap and visor collection with some haute Hawaiian edge courtesy of Haus of Grey’s Aloha Press headgear. The fashion house minted by UCLA All-American golfer Travis Johnson has major milliner game. 

Light as a thread on a hula girl’s grass skirt, and loud in a good way like luau casual, these breathable beauties are available in fierce floral motifs or an understated yet elegant B & W design. Perch one on your head and instantly become the talk of the clubhouse. Be sure to brush up on your island parlance, “Ua Mau ke Ea o ka ‘Aina I Ka Pono,” is a good phrase to memorize if you want to sound deep. It’s the 50th state’s official motto which translates to, “the life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.” The saying is quite apropos after a well-read double break on a twelve foot putt sees your ball plunk into the cup.

Just be prepared to say “mahalo” over and over again to well wishers on the course with one of these funky flatbilled lids shielding your noggin from the rays. The retro rope up front is a nifty golf hipster touch too, decidedly Lee Trevino with the palms and botanical flourishes screaming sunshine, good vibes, and a life less ordinary.
