With golf season finally upon us, it’s important to make sure that your golf bag is fully stocked with the essential items you will need to make your next round unforgettable. This post is designed to provide a quick checklist that you may reference in order to ensure that you have everything you need before hitting the links this year. So without further ado, here are the six essentials you should always have stocked in your golf bag (aside from your golf clubs).
Plenty of Golf Balls
You can’t play golf if you don’t have any golf balls right? Before your next round, make sure you have at least 8-10 golf balls in your bag to ensure that you will have enough to finish the round. Obviously, if you are a bit erratic with your shots and tend to lose a lot of balls throughout a round, then feel free to throw a few extra sleeves in there just in case. (P.S. It’s okay to buy refurbished golf balls).
Two Golf Gloves
If you plan on playing frequently this golf season, you should seriously consider buying two golf gloves now and storing both in your bag. It might seem unnecessary to buy two golf gloves at the same time, but you won’t think that if you rip a hole in one of your gloves during the middle of the round. It’s much better to have a spare already in your bag then having to rush to buy a replacement you may not like.
You would be surprised how many people forget about restocking their golf tees only to find out once they are at the course that they are out of tees. If you’re like me and tend to break your wooden tees on nearly every tee shot, think about purchasing a bag of plastic tees that will last longer. Whatever your preference, make sure you have at least a large handful of tees in your bag prior to your round.
Unless you live in Arizona or Southern California, it’s inevitable that you will experience some rain while on the golf course. The rain always seems to start when you are the hole farthest away from the clubhouse/shelter too, right? It’s always nice to have a rain jacket or umbrella stored somewhere in your bag for those wet and stormy rounds. Having a rain jacket and/or umbrella will make waiting out the storm much more pleasant and dry.
The divot tool is one of the most forgotten devices to have with you on the golf course, but it’s critically important to helping keep the course in great shape. It’s common courtesy to fix ball marks that your ball makes on the green, so do yourself and the course a favor and keep this inexpensive tool in your bag.
It’s simple. Golf is an outdoor sport and it’s important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultra-violet rays. For that reason, you should always keep sunscreen in your bag. I recommend using a spray-on sunscreen so that you do not have to worry about your hands getting slippery while gripping the club.
Now you’re all set to go have fun, score low, and stay safe out on the course!
