Fore! Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a golfing newbie, there are a few golf bag essentials you should have readily available to help improve your game and make it more enjoyable. Other than clubs, here’s what every golfer should have in their bag.
Depending on your golf game, you might lose some balls along the way. Try to bring at least six to ten golf balls with you, so you have some wiggle room. This Calloway 2021 Supersoft pack comes with 12 golf balls. Calloway Supersoft balls are a favorite of seasoned golfers, and they make a great addition to your golf bag. Plus, if you don’t want white, they come in a variety of other colors to choose from. Buy them here.
Don’t forget your tees! This huge pack of Pride Professional Tee System 3 1/4 inch tees will ensure that you’ll always find a tee when you reach in your bag for one. The blue markings on the tees also allow you to consistently set them at the same height, without any guesswork involved. Buy them here.
A great rule of thumb is to always pack an extra golf glove in your bag. You don’t want to be caught gloveless if you forgot to bring yours! A golf glove helps you keep your grip on your club while swinging, and it also prevents your hand from getting blistered. The Calloway Golf Men’s Weather Spann Premium Japanese Synthetic Golf Glove is flexible, moisture-wicking, breathable and durable. If you’re a lefty, it also comes in a left-handed model. Buy it here.
The Callaway Dawn Patrol Women’s Glove is also a great addition to your golf bag. The thin, light and secure fit of this glove allows for comfortable swinging, and the perforations allow for moisture reduction and increased breathability. The glove comes in a variety of sizes for right-handed and left-handed golfers. Buy it here.
If you’re serious about your golf game, you might want a rangefinder. The Gogogo Sport Vpro Laser Rangefinder for Golf allows the user to measure distance at high ranges, lock their gaze on the flagpole and accurately shoot a golf ball calibrated at uphill or downhill targets. This rangefinder comes with an ergonomic design, is tournament-legal and operates on AA batteries. Buy it here.
Don’t go golfing with a friend without a golf ball marker on hand (or on hat). This Kaveno Golf Ball Marker with Golf Hat Clip is a stylish golf ball marker that comes in a series of different designs, including this classy “Keep Calm and Golf On” version. These magnetic markers attach to a hat clip that you can put on the brim of your hat, so you’ll never misplace them. Buy them here.
If it’s more drizzly than sunny outside, you should bring an umbrella as well. This G4Free Automatic Open Golf Umbrella comes in three huge sizes, so you’re sure to be dry no matter what you choose. The umbrella features a double-canopy design and a fiberglass frame, making it ultra-durable in the face of windy weather. Plus, it’s quick-opening and has a comfortable handle. A good umbrella is what every golfer should have in their bag. Buy it here.
