For the true golf enthusiast, there is a wide variety of golf equipment available to improve your game or just make it more enjoyable. Besides your Golf Clubs and your golf buddies, there are many pieces of golf equipment essential for your enjoyment of the game.
Before you even head to the course, your first golf equipment decision is what to wear. There is a multitude of golf apparel available from many different manufacturers. The most important consideration with this type of golf equipment is comfort. Make sure the apparel you purchase is appropriate for the climate you will be playing in as well as comfortable. Some courses require a collared shirt, so be aware of course rules regarding any golf equipment or apparel.
Your next piece of golf equipment is a bag to carry your clubs in. Before buying a golf bag, consider if you will be using a riding cart, a push cart, or carrying your bag. There are many bags designed for use with one or all of the options listed. Riding cart bags usually are larger and have many extra features. Push cart bags are usually lighter, and carry bags are the lightest. A few bags are designed with features suitable for both types of carts. This may be a good golf equipment consideration if you will be using both riding and push carts.
There is also golf equipment available for the true golfer that has to have all the gadgets. PeakVision Sports has designed a number of sunglass models specifically for golfers. "Every good shot begins with what your eyes are able to see and communicate to the brain about the shot," says Paul Moore, CEO of PeakVision Sports. Their sunglasses are designed to be free of distortion and have "dual-zone" lenses. These lenses incorporate two types of tinting, gray tinting in the upper zone to reduce glare and amber tinting in the lower zone to highlight the contours of the green for better putts. If you are serious about your game, this is the kind of golf equipment you need.
There are many other golf equipment options out there, from the type of golf balls you choose, to golf gloves designed with the arthritic golfer in mind. Golf equipment can, in some case, improve your golf game, and in others, simply improve your enjoyment of the game. As with other golf purchases, make sure you compare brands and try out any golf equipment before you buy it.
