Where would golfers be without their equipment? Having the best clubs and golf balls are integral to great performance, but there a lot more too. Here are some articles and other information about the large range of golf equipment that is available.
Golf balls come in various types catering to different performance needs. The primary categories include two-piece and multi-layer balls. Two-piece balls suit beginners due to their durability and distance, featuring a solid core and robust cover. Multi-layer balls, favored by skilled golfers, offer improved control and feel through layered construction. Specialized balls exist for specific conditions, like low-compression options for slower swings and high-spin balls for advanced players. This range enables golfers to select balls matching their playing style and preferences.

- Golf Tees — A golf tee is a small, typically wooden or plastic peg used to elevate a golf ball off the ground, allowing the golfer to make a full swing with a driver or other long clubs. The tee is placed in the ground and the ball is set on top of it, providing a stable and elevated platform for the ball to be struck from. This can help golfers achieve greater distance and accuracy, as it allows for a cleaner strike on the ball without interference from the ground. Golf tees come in different sizes, shapes, and materials, with longer tees being used for longer clubs and shorter tees being used for shorter clubs or shots played from the fairway or rough. The use of tees is generally permitted on most golf courses, but it's always a good idea to check with the course's rules and regulations to ensure that specific types of tees are allowed.

- Golf gloves — Golf gloves are designed to provide golfers with a better grip on their clubs, as well as to protect their hands from blisters and calluses. They are typically made of a thin, lightweight material that allows for maximum flexibility and feel, while also providing a secure grip on the club. Golf gloves are available in various sizes and styles, and many golfers prefer to wear them on one hand only, typically the non-dominant hand for right-handed golfers and the dominant hand for left-handed golfers.
- Golf Shoes — Golf shoes provide essential benefits on the course. Their unique design, often with spiked or specialized soles, offers superior traction, stability, and grip on different terrains, including grass and sand. This enhanced grip allows golfers to maintain proper balance and posture during swings, improving overall swing mechanics and shot accuracy. Additionally, golf shoes often come with features like waterproofing and comfortable cushioning, keeping feet dry and comfortable during varying weather conditions and long rounds. Ultimately, golf shoes contribute to better performance, comfort, and injury prevention for golfers of all levels. More about Golf Shoes.
- Ball markers — Ball markers are used in golf to mark the position of a ball on the green, so that it can be lifted and cleaned before being replaced in the exact same spot. This is typically necessary when a ball is in the way of another player's putt or when it is in a location that might interfere with another player's swing. Once a ball is marked with a ball marker, it can be lifted and cleaned, and then replaced on the green in the same spot. This helps to ensure that each player has a fair and consistent playing surface, and that no one gains an advantage by playing from a different location. Ball markers can be any small, flat object, such as a coin or a small disc specifically designed for this purpose.
- Golf Towels — Golf towels serve various practical purposes for golfers on the course. They are essential for cleaning golf clubs and balls, maintaining secure grips, removing excess moisture from the ball's surface in wet conditions, wiping hands and faces for comfort, distinguishing personalized golf balls, keeping accessories clean, and adhering to golf etiquette by repairing divots and cleaning up. Additionally, towels contribute to a golfer's sense of professionalism and attention to detail, enhancing overall performance and comfort during a round of golf. More about Golf Towels.
- Range Finders — A range finder is a tool used in golf to measure the distance between a golfer and a target on the course, such as the flagstick or a hazard. The range finder uses laser technology to accurately determine the distance, and it can be very helpful for golfers when selecting which club to use for their next shot. By knowing the precise distance to the target, golfers can make more informed decisions about the strength and direction of their shots, which can improve their accuracy and overall performance. While the use of range finders is permitted in some golf tournaments and events, it is important for golfers to check with the course or event organizers to ensure that they are allowed before using one.

- Divot fixers — Divot fixers, also known as ball mark repair tools, are used in golf to repair the small dents or depressions in the green caused by golf balls landing on it. When a golf ball lands on the green, it can create a small depression or divot in the surface, which can affect the roll and speed of subsequent putts. To repair a divot, a golfer will use a divot fixer to gently push the surrounding grass back into the depression, allowing it to reattach to the roots and grow back together more quickly. This helps to maintain the integrity of the playing surface and ensures that subsequent golfers have a smooth and even putting surface. It is considered good etiquette and a responsibility of golfers to repair any divots they cause while playing.
- Headcovers — Golf club headcovers are protective covers designed to fit over the heads of golf clubs, primarily woods and hybrids, to protect them from damage during transportation and storage. They typically feature a soft material, such as neoprene or knit, that cushions the clubhead and prevents scratches and dings. Golf club headcovers come in a variety of sizes and designs to fit different club types and brands, and they may have additional features such as magnetic closures or embroidered logos. In addition to protecting the clubheads, many golfers use headcovers as a way to express their personal style on the course.
