The first thing you notice when you slip on an Antigua golf shirt – it’s soft. I’m not sure what one of these short sleeve shirt weights… but it feels incredibly light. After wearing these newer high tech materials; you won’t be running back to basic cotton anytime soon. Antigua’s version is called DESERT DRY™ (pictured to the below). I’m not sure what it’s made of, but it sure is comfortable. On a recent trip to Las Vegas in March, we spent an afternoon at the Desert Pine Golf Club – it’s a nice, if short, course. It was a warm day – not hot. So, I didn’t get to test the ‘desert dry’ claim. At $50 to $60 price point is a bit high. I’ve only put it through the wash once; it came out looking new. That said, I’ve seen shirts of this quality run over $100. All in all, I give this shirt a strong buy recommendation.
