July/August/Seotember Short Par 4 Rating and Review – Box #7, 8 and 9
Haven’t seen our Short Par 4 rating and review before? All good, let us break it down for you. We decided to commit to ONE year of the service with the “Athletic Persona” and do a rating and review of EVERY box that gets shipped to us each month in a video and blog post.
Each month, we will do a 1 minute video clip of the SP4 box and then a longer, more detailed version talking about the products we received. Check them both out below! You can find the rating in the video or by reading the blog post below! Enjoy.If you couldn’t tell by the title of this blog post and have been following along closely previously, we are a bit behind… Though we LOVE doing the rating and review of Short Par 4, we have been busy working on getting more courses signed up, expansion to new cities and of course sneaking out for a few rounds ourselves. Can’t say this is the last time we will fall behind this bad as I hate lying to you all, but we will work our hardest not to slip this long. Without further ado, please read on for the rating and reviews. Thank you.

These shorts are cool. I wasn’t in love with them. They have a “beachy” feel and that’s not really my style. The inner design was pretty sweet. Nice little touch by SP4. They were however pretty long. For a guy who is 5’6, shorts are tough to come by. I usually air on the side of short and show some extra thigh than not, but that’s just me.
Item #2 – Devereux Jonah Polo – Retail $60.00
Product info and specs:
- Athletic fit
- 35% Polyester
- 65% Pima Cotton
The shirt shown below is not the exact shirt, but it is close. The grey shirt that came in the box was actually pretty sweet. I had never heard of the brand before but liked the pocket on it. I have a Foot Joy shirt that is pretty similar as well. Unique shirt and a nice touch to the collection.
In the Facebook live review, I gave this box an 8 of 10 as I didn’t have time to try the shorts on for length. Realistically, this was a 5 out of 10.
What’s In The August Box?
Item #1 – Short Par 4 Patrick Polo $45.00
Product info and specs: Short Par 4 Patrick Polo
- Quick Drying
- 4-Way Stretch

- Moisture Wicking

See an image of the polo below.
Not really into this shirt at all as you can tell from the video. The material is really nice but the color not so much for me. I was turned off by this month’s box due to receiving the same polo from a few months back.
Item #2 – Puma Essential Pounce Polo – Retail $45.00
Product info and specs: Introducing our best basic polo. Go subtle or opt for color. This go-to top provides moisture wicking properties and DryCELL technology to keep you comfortable and dry for a long day on the links.

I already received this shirt in grey in June. Not cool, then I was burdened with sending it back
I gave this box a 2 of 10 as I already received the one shirt 2 months before… It is a nice shirt however. If they gave me a different color shirt, I probably would have made it a 7 out of 10.
What’s In The September Box?
Item #1 – SP4 Polo by Greyson $45.00
Product info and specs:
Designed exclusively for Short Par 4 by Greyson
- Elastane for full range of motion
- Moisture wicking
- UV Protection
- 90% Polyester
- 10% Spandex
The shirt is pretty cool. I like the different color collar and the material is really nice. However, I feel like SP4 is trying to disguise their own brands with the “Greyson” brand. I joined to get brands I like, like Puma, Under Armour and more and this is what we get? Not feeling it.
Item #2 – Greyson Icon T-Shirt $20.00
Icon T-Shirt by Greyson
- Luxury Cotton/Polyester blend
- Wolf logo on back neck
- Old English style Greyson logo across front
- 52% Cotton
- 48% Polyester
I dont’ know about you guys, but I didn’t join a golf subscription company for a t-shirt. Not feeling this month AGAIN!
Not happy again. I rated this a 2 out of 10. Biggest reason for the low rating was the t-shirt. Thats now 3 months in a row with bad ratings. The total MSRP on the box was $65 for $45 in cost. Thats not a whole lot of value to me. If I didn’t commit to a whole year, SP4 would have lost us as a customer. They now have 3 months to keep us happy and on the service or we are OUT!
Again, we apologize for such a long post and less frequent than normal. Judging by the ratings, we weren’t able to show you anything great, but it helps to be honest with how we feel about things.
