Thirdly, a very obvious essential is golf balls! It would be very difficult to play golf without the golf balls of course. We always recommend taking a few golf balls with you in case you misplace or lose them. In addition, we would also recommend using bright coloured golf balls so that they are easy to see and find on the green.

5: Golf Shoes- Golfing Essentials

Golf shoes can be quite controversial as some people question whether you even need them. However, we think that golf shoes are a definite essential as they can complete change your game. Golf shoes are a lot more stable and sturdy compared to your regular trainers and are able to adapt to different terrains. In addition, they are also a lot more flexible. This all helps you in your game overall as you will be more stable and have a better stance.

6: Glove- Golfing Essentials

Golfing gloves are very important when it comes to your game. The main purpose of them is to make sure that you get a proper grip of the golf club. This can be difficult if the club is wet or if the golfer’s hands are sweaty, which is why a glove is always useful. In addition to this, the overall grip that you get of the club can be better as it reduces the chance of you gripping too hard and having a bad swing.

This product is a definite essential, especially if you are more of a competitive player. The LazerOptix Golf Rangefinder gives you an accurate distance between you and the flag, compensating for slopes. In addition, the scan mode allows you to range multiple targets without having to reactivate the laser for each target.

8: Golf Bag

Golf bags are great for carrying not only you clubs, but all of your other golfing essentials. We recommend getting a waterproof/ water resistant one just in case of rain. This means that even if it does rain, all of your golfing equipment will keep dry and not get ruined.

9: Golf Headcovers

Headcovers are an essential as they keep your clubs clean and safe from scratches/ dents. However, you must ensure that before putting on the headcover to clean and dry you club. This will prevent any kind of rusting from happening over time. Headcovers are also a way of showing off your style and humour as you can get a huge range of funky and funny covers!

10: Golf Tees

Golfing tees are an essential as they can result in a better shot compared to hitting the ball straight off of the ground. The height of the tee also matters. You should always try to keep your tee as low to the ground as you can, especially if you are using a driver. Tees can break quite easily which is why you should always make sure you have spares.
