Whats wrong with a coat ? Little Trekkers have Spotty Otter down coats in their sale atm, and ds stays blissfully warm in his and they aren't restrictive. I'd do that, plus a thermal poloneck, and he should be fine.

It's not a technical base/ mid layer type fleece but my ds has a shaggy fleece from joules which is really warm and snug.

You get kids thermal golf stuff in Sports Direct. It is the shop from hell - badly-lit, plastic smelling, and with disinterested assistants - but the golfwear is cheap and good.

Aldi often do kids thermal base layers, especially this time of year when skiing is popular. Mountain Warehouse is another good place to try.

Fleeces aren't warm if it's windy unless you get a windproof one which are usually more expensive.

Would something like this do the trick?

Most big outdoor shops have good sales on at the moment for kids winter clothes (Cotswold outdoor, Blacks)
Polartec Thermal Pro fleece is the warmest for its weight. If you can't find any kids sizes in technical fleeces - and I think it's only the specialist brands who do them for kids e.g. Helly Hansen - maybe women's XS or XXS would fit? That regatta soft shell is a very good idea.

So my next idea after reading the comment about fleeces not being wind proof was that my DS also has a wind proof fleece jacket from Polarn O Pyret which has no hood (I think this is good you DS does not want a hood?) a bit more expensive but very warm as totally takes away the chill from the wind but not at all bulky!

M and M are good, we use them quite a lot for DD's running stuff.

What I use for winter golf is a set of long thermals, a thin layer above that and wind cheating jacket and trousers. And a pair of thermal mittens to wear between shots. Golf is impossible to play if your hands are cold. Also, wear something warm on your head. Nothing too bulky, because that affects the swing. Ashworth do a pretty good windcheater.
