Do I need hand mitts to keep my hands warm to play golf in Melbourne during winter? I found a good one on sale and was wondering if I needed to buy one. Thanks in advance.

Put the mitts over your ears son, will help drown out the constant AFL drivel.

It's punishing.

I would rather get frost bitten fingers than listen to some other fool take me through the relative merits of the Collingwood backline circa 1990 or another discussion on feckin' Eddie

One of those I'm not keen on, and the other just isn't possible.
It's beanies, about 4 layers, and hand warmer sachets in my mitts for me in the middle of winter.

Melbourne weather is all about layers and options. Cause you’re likely to have a couple of different seasons in one game. I have a clicgear mitts which are great but really only use them in the middle of winter. Need a beanie in the bag, together with a long sleeve T on top of a normal T with a skivvy or skins undershirt underneath. Then a light jumper so the layers are doing all the work and you can mix and match as required. All has to be low bulk enough to fit under the waterproofs should you need them.

Those 'hot hands' sachets are also useful. You can buy in bulk from ebay.

You pack of wimps: mittens, hand warmers, etc.

Just go and play golf. Some days are hot, some are cold.
