The past year hasn’t been a great one for golfers, but everything looks bright for things to get back to normal in the coming summer. So, why not take the opportunity to refresh your golf kit and invest in some new golf accessories for the summer.
We’ve taken a look at some of the best golf accessories around to help you make the right choice.
GPS Golf Watch
Once affordable only by the wealthy, there are now many models of GPS Golf Watch that are available at surprisingly affordable prices.
They’re pretty neat little gadgets too!
The idea is that the watch looks at all the hazards and other features in the immediate area and gives you a view of the hole you’re about to play.
These are great devices when fine-tuning your game or playing at a new course. You no longer have to pay a fortune, and they’re attractive and very wearable watches.
Home Practice Set
Just in case we do get limited time on the course, why not buy yourself a good home practice set? These take a couple of forms, including the familiar putting green set you can lay out if you have decent space and digital gold practice sets that take things to another level. Even, try practicing your golf grip at home.
OK, so they’re not cheap, but you can indulge in a touch of putting practice or a virtual round when you feel like it, and some of these machines are surprisingly sophisticated. It’s great if you want to get your kids into the game too.
Quality Golf Shoes
You can buy golf shoes pretty cheaply, but we say you should spend a bit more than you usually would and invest in a quality pair. You’re going to have a lot of catching up to do with friends and colleagues when you can get back on the course, so you’ll be walking a lot!
Look for shoes that are specially designed with comfort in mind, and don’t be afraid to splash out. A good pair of golf shoes will last a long time, so you’ll get your money’s worth.
New Set of Tees
Not the most exciting item, we’ll give you that much, but when was the last time you bought yourself a new set of tees? The ones you use will be worn and tired by now, so how about you invest in a good set of quality wooden tees? You don’t want to be the member of the four-ball whose ball keeps falling off the tee.. “that’s one shot!”
Are we in for a hot summer? Who knows, but even in just mild weather, a drinks bottle is a great item to have with you. Cheap, practical, and useful, you can find some cleverly designed examples that are great for golfers and are sturdy and resistant to damage. Check them out now, and you’ll see what we mean.
That’s five of the best golf accessories for the coming summer, so start buying now and make sure you’re ready for the new season.
