Types Of Equipments Used in Golf Game

    • Golf Clubs:

      Several clubs are used by a player during the play; the number can be up to fourteen. There are basically three types of clubs; these are woods, iron and putters. If you are beginner you can use your friends clubs or rent them from the golf course instead of buying expensive $1000 irons. Buying these expensive top rated golf clubs while you are a beginner will not be a good idea, when you have improved your game then you can buy an upgraded clubs that will last longer with you.download (3)

    • Golf Balls:

      These balls are made of hardwood, such as beach. The minimum allowed diameter of ball is 42.67 mm. For beginners we suggest to go for cheaper ones or you can go for used balls as you may lose lot of balls initially.

    • Tees:

      Tee is an object made up of wood or plastic that is placed on ground to rest the ball on its top in order to make easier shot. Tee is not allowed for the first stroke of each hole. Plastic tees are more expensive but they last longer. These things last practically forever so bring good quality once.

    • Pitchfork Repair Tool:

      This tool is occasionally used when divot is being produced by the ball on the green golf course. These days some new tools have been invented for this purpose, these new once smoothen the surface to large extend.

    • Ball Marker: 

      These are piece of metal or plastic used to mark the place of ball. You can also use a coin, for the same purpose to mark where your ball is on the green.

    • Golf cart or Push cart :  Carrying all these equipment over the golf course from one hole to another is quite tiring job, golf carts or best golf push carts can be used for the same purpose.
    • Towels:

      Having towels with you at course can be used for cleaning the ball and clubs and also for face whenever you get sweaty, so carry two of them with you.

    • Golf bags and club head covers:

      Golf bags are used to carry the clubs and other equipments in one bag. We also suggest using head covers for the clubs, this not only protect them but also make them identifiable at first glance.

  • Golf Shoes:

    while going to golf course have good quality golf shoes especially when the field is wet. And don’t go for shoes with metal spikes as number of golf courses doesn’t allow metal spikes.

  • Golf Glove:

    Golf gloves not only provide extra grip for your hands as they may get very sweaty sometimes and also prevent blistering. If sweat is not a problem in your case you can go without gloves. But if you are going to buy glove, then buy good ones never go for cheaper ones as they may tear out sooner.

  • Golf Rangefinder:

    this device allows you to calculate exact distance from your current position and the hole. Although they are illegal as per Rule 14-3 but USGA allows individual course clubs, allowing recreational players use this device.
