There’s a wide variety of golf bag accessories that range in practicality and price, but you don’t need all of them in 2021 to enjoy playing or improve your game. However, there are certain golf products that most players should own whether they’ve been playing for years or they’re new to golf. See which golf bag accessories are helpful to have as you swing into the New Year.
Golf Accessories to Keep in Your Bag in 2021
Given the numerous golf bag accessories you can buy online and in stores, it’s all too easy to feel like they’re all necessary to buy. Before you go on a shopping spree, check out Glovelast’s recommendations so you’re less likely to buy products that you don’t really need.
1. Golf Balls and Tees
Without these, you pretty much can’t play golf. Since golf balls get lost over time, go with less expensive golf balls over pricier options.
2. Golf Shoes and Socks
Golf shoes provide more balance when you’re walking on grass and sand as well as better traction than regular sneakers. This can help boost the distance and consistency of your swing.
3. Quality Golf Glove
A golf glove protects your hand and provides comfort when swinging. Select a golf glove made with quality material and construction for increased durability and a flexible fit.
4. Golf Glove Shaper
The Glovelast glove shaper is a must-have golf accessory because it preserves the shape and quality of your golf glove by helping it dry faster. Another benefit of a glove shaper includes saving money on replacing golf gloves less often.
5. Hat and Sunglasses
It’s crucial to protect your face and eyes from the sun by wearing a hat and sunglasses, particularly when UV rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Choose sunglasses that not only fit well, but they also provide UV protection.
6. Sunscreen and Bugspray
Prevent painful sunburns and bug bites by keeping sunscreen and bugspray in your golf bag. Make sure the sunscreen is labeled broad-spectrum and has at least SPF 50 for adequate protection.
7. Rain Jacket or Umbrella
Weather can quickly change when you’re playing golf which is why you should keep a rain jacket or umbrella in your golf bag so you can continue playing, rain or shine.
8. Golf Club Cleaning Towel
Gently clean your golf clubs with a microfiber golf towel to wipe away dirt and grass. Microfiber material is great at trapping particles without risking damage to the club.
9. Scorecards and Holder
Forgetting scorecards can be annoying. Instead, stock up on scorecards and keep several in your golf bag. Furthermore, stay organized with a scorecard holder.
10. Golf Ball Marker
Keep a golf ball marker in your bag so you have something to put behind your ball on putting greens to not lose your spot. The marker can be just a coin you keep in your bag or a store-bought golf ball marker with an interesting design.
Get the Right Golf Bag Accessories
It’s better to have fewer quality golf bag accessories than a lot of cheap products that will fall apart after a couple of uses or you end up never using. Also, it’ll be easier on your shoulders and back to be carrying around less stuff in your golf bag. On the other hand, you don’t need the most expensive accessories or the latest tech-gear either to get quality. Look for products that offer a balance of cost and quality so you can save money for more important things - like playing more golf!
