All the essentials are here for you to carry in your golf bag. With these tips, you can never go wrong or miss anything during a golf game. Be one step ahead following this checklist. Feel free to use it as a guide for your days of playing the best sport in the world.

1. At least 6-8 golf balls

Play It collection

For the average course. If you’re playing a different, more difficult golf course then you might need more than that. If you are not sure, just bring a few extras. You might be surprised about the number of balls you’ve actually lost.

Golf ball review:

5.0 out of 5 stars (3 years in a row and he’s always happy), June 14, 2018.
Verified Purchase
“My go-to gift for my dad as he’s an avid golfer. 3 years in a row and he’s always happy haha”

2. Two + golf gloves

Either if you rip yours, or sweat through one, it’s always good to have
a backup golf glove. These are the ones we suggest, but there are infinite golf glove brands out there for you to pick from.


5.0 out of 5 stars – Typically get 5 games out of them and I am pretty rough on my glove September 18, 2018
Size: XX-LargeHand Orientation: Worn on Left HandVerified Purchase
“Repeat customer, these gloves fit as expected and are high quality. Typically get 5 games out of them and I am pretty rough on my glove.”

3. Four coins or ball makers

Why four? Just in case the 3 other players didn’t bring theirs,
and of course, one coin/ball marker for you. A lucky coin always comes in handy.

4. Water bottle

The ones that keep your water cool on a sunny hot day are a great option
so the heat doesn’t mess with your golf game.

5. A handful of tees

You never know when these guys are gonna break, and you don’t
want to spend your game asking another player ‘hey, can I borrow a tee?’. There’s not a certain amount you should take with you, so just grab lots of tees and go have fun.


5.0 out of 5 stars – Will Definitely Tee You Off… April 3, 2016 Style Name: 75 count Color: WhiteVerified Purchase
“I love the longer tee and the coloration helps with consistent depth placement. Durable but inexpensive enough that a broken one is nothing to sweat over. And they might even have lengthened
my drives! (ha!)”

6. Rain gear: especially an umbrella

Umbrellas are tricky, I have a feeling we should never
spend too much money on an umbrella, but if we spend too little, it will be useless when you’ll need it the most. What’s the sweet spot then? Well, it really is an individual preference, but according to some research, we’ve seen this is a very reliable, non-expensive one, and you can use it for shade too. Here’s what a customer had to say about it.


5.0 out of 5 stars – Relief from the sun! October 15, 2016
Color: Dark BlueSize: 62 Inch – Verified Purchase
“Nothing short of excellent, old school concern for customer satisfaction. This umbrella is amazing. Top shelf design and construction, definitely not a throwaway. Yesterday I used it on my boat for shade.. The wind was a gusty 20 to 25 miles an hour its performance was rock solid. I live in coastal
south Texas and the sun is absolutely blazingly brutal, I did collapse the umbrella when moving, while at anchor at the push of a button it easily opens and was a real skin saver and it felt 20 degrees cooler under the wonderful shade. I usually don’t write reviews but this product deserves the time and effort.”

7. Waterproof baggie

for valuables (phones, watch, wallet, keys) – You never know if the
forecast was right, or spills and accidents may happen. The best option is to always secure your valuables in a waterproof baggie so you can be at ease and enjoy your golf game.

8. Mini-sharpie

This option comes an aligner with is genius and so practical. This way you’ll
always know which is which in the fairway. No confusion there.

9. A great golf towel

This one comes with a Club groove cleaner, which makes it a perfect
combo. Whether it’s mud, dirt, or water, your clubs will be as good as new over the course of a round.


5.0 out of 5 stars – Highly recommended June 20, 2018
Color: Black, Towel+Brush+Fish Divot 3 ComboVerified Purchase
“Great towel and brush. I didn’t need the divot tool but it’s a really neat and slick one. The microfiber towel does a good job of keeping my club heads clean after each hit. The brush is very nice. I really love the groove cleaner. Great set overall. Highly recommended.”

10. First-aid kit

A great first-aid kit usually contains the following or similar:

  • Band-aids for blisters (tweezers are not bad either)
  • Cotton balls
  • Bandages
  • Pain-free tape
  • A Wound wash / Isopropyl rubbing alcohol
  • Polysporin or any other cream that calms, and helps healing wounds
  • Painkillers
  • Instant ice pack
  • Eye-drops
  • Lip-balm (especially for desert/mountain courses)

PS.: Don’t forget sunscreen and bug spray. Now, if you don’t want to go after each item, order this one from Amazon, and you should be just fine.

11. Portable charger

Anything with over 7000mAh is good, but the one we recommend
based on customers reviews is a 22000mAh portable charger. Don’t forget to carry an extra USB cable, otherwise it won’t matter if you have the charger or not, lol.


5.0 out of 5 stars – “This Power Bank works great with my LG G6 and Nintendo Switch!!! As well as other devices.” December 31, 2017 Color: 22000-Black Verified Purchase

“This portable charger is amazing. On a two-day car ride, with the Power Bank fully charged I was able to charge an iPod 2x, an LG G6 1x, an iPhone 8 plus 1x, and two other Android phones (I’m not sure on the model of those phones. Both were charged 1x each). I would like to mention that when charging these devices they were at about 20%~ and charged to 100%. Even after all this, there was still 1 blue light left on the power bank.”

12. Cash in small bills for tips, beverages, and bets

Who knows who might challenge you along the game? It’s also good for tips and for the beverage cart that usually goes around for those who are parched.
